Our cruise ship anchored at Porto venere. Because of rough seas, our sail boat trip was cancelled so we ended up wondering the little streets ourselves and just took in the sights of the area. The port area is a very tiny place with some...More

If you are looking for a way to get away from the crowds of Cinque Terre, a ferry ride to Porto Venere is a great option. My family and I went today and loved it. We took the ferry from Riomaggiore, which took about 40...More

Town is beautiful and nice to explore. However, a bit too quiet in the evening. Many restaurants which serve average overpriced food and too many tourists. Also a bit pricy. Especially the boat trips to Cinque Terre. Private beach is nice but you have to...More

This is one of the most magical cities on the Italian Riveria. I loved the 1,000-year-old sites including the castle, fortress, two ancient Catholic Churches and waterfront dining. I also used ferry to easily get to Cinque Terre for hiking.

Really chilled village surrounded by stunning landscape, we loved it but we went a peak season so it was really busy and HOT. Definately recommend doing it out of season so you can really get to feel the peaceful relaxed way of life.

When you visit Cinque Terre definitely visit Portovenere. The ferry stops there and it is a charming town. Great food and scenery.

We stayed in Lerici and switched ferries in Portovenere on the way to Cinque Terre to hike. Loved the low key energy of Portovenere. So scenic, tons of history, but also life of the villagers going on around us. Leave yourself an hour or two...More

Debby Not as far as I know. You could hike to riomaggio but that would be a loooong way. Would say portovenere is a side trip, different from cinque terre.
