It is possible to walk following the pier overlooking the sea, hosting the fleet of fishing boats as well as fishermen for fun. It extends up to the characteristic 'Faro Rosso'.

On the opposite side of the Gulf of Poets, compared to Portovenere, we find the equally characteristic village of Lerici, whose huts along the streets, climb up to its Castel, built by the Pisan Republic but later concluded by the Genoese. Inside we find the Geopaleontological Museum.
In Lerici you can enjoy the long walk to the sea that leads to the opposite village, San Terenzo (anchl'esso con il suo piccolo castello), (also with its small castle), along the beach of Venere Azzurra, equipped and ideal for enjoying the sun and the sea.
This place has been renowned by famous Trabi poets whom we mention: Percy Bysshe Shelley, together with his wife Mary Shelley, as well as George Byron.
