You will discover two gorgeous natural treasures: Palmaria Island and the village of Portovenere.

Upon arriving in Portovenere by a private car transfer, you will take a ferry to Palmaria Island (located in the Gulf of the Poets) to have an amazing hiking experience. On this journey, you will have the chance to admire the amazing landscapes, beautiful beaches, and spectacular sights that this unique island offers. You will be mesmerized by the steep cliffs overhanging the sea, and the many caves offering a relaxing and peaceful environment. There is no wonder to why many famous poets such as Lord Byron, Shelley, Petrarch, and Montale adored this area of the Italian Riviera.
