Full description

Join us for a wonderful half-day boat tour to discover the Golfo dei Poeti.

We will be on board a gozzo, at the helm of which will be Captain Gerry, who will take us to discover the most picturesque villages of the Riviera di Levante, such as Portovenere, Lerici and Tellaro, and the small islands of the archipelago of the Porto Venere Natural Park.

We can take refreshing swims and dives or relax on board lulled by the waves while admiring the wonderful landscape around us. There will also be a tasty aperitif to delight the palate. Based on what? Ligurian focaccia, of course!

What we will do

We will meet at the time agreed at the time of booking in Lerici, La Spezia or Portovenere (depending on the chosen port of departure). We will board the gozzo Vittoria and after the necessary introductions we will be ready to set sail. From now on, you can call me Captain Gerry!

Shortly after we leave the port we will already see Portovenere, a colourful fishing village that inspired the English poet Lord Byron. Right here there is a grotto carved out of the sea that is named after him, and right in front of Byron's Grotto we can take a relaxing swim lulled by the waves.

Then we will re-board to head towards the archipelago of the Porto Venere Natural Park, which includes the three islands of Tino, Tinetto and Palmaria. During the navigation we will enjoy a tasty aperitif (included) which includes Ligurian focaccia and crostini with dried cherry tomatoes to be accompanied by Prosecco and non-alcoholic drinks.

Near the three islands we will stop for a swim and, if we wish, we can put on our masks to do some snorkelling to discover the seabed.

We will then return on board to reach Tellaro, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, which we will be able to admire from the sea in all its beauty.

Finally, we will sail past Lerici, where we can enjoy a last dive before returning to the starting point.

The excursion has a total duration of about 4 hours.
