Lerici and Portovenere
Our next stop is the town Lerici which is located in the glorious Bay of La Spezia, famous for its natural beauty. This picturesque village dates back to medieval times when, under the rule of Pisa, it fought cross-bay battles with Genovese Portovenere as well as with local pirates. The town is set on a magnificent coastline of grey cliffs jutting down into a crystal-clear sea and surrounded by a national park that is nearly an unframed painting of pine forests, olive trees, and tiny colourful hamlets. The waterfront piazza is filled with trompe-l'oeil frescoed buildings and seaside cafés where you can sit and admire the charming harbour.
