Full description

Do you want to know why there is a cave named Byron in Liguria? Get ready to find out with this romantic sunset gozzo tour.

Sailing from La Spezia along the Golfo dei Poeti, you will discover the charm of Portovenere amidst the thousand shades of the sky and enjoy an aperitif with toasts and typical Ligurian products.

We look forward to seeing you on board!

What we will do

We will meet in La Spezia, 15 minutes before the time agreed upon during the reservation.

Climbing aboard theBlue gozzo , we will begin our approximately 45-minute sail to reach the famous Grotta Byron, a 20-metre natural cavity insinuated between the walls of the castle and the church of San Pietro in Portovenere.

This pearl of the Gulf of Poets will be the perfect setting for taking some photos and discovering interesting anecdotes told by the skipper: it seems that the poet Byron was inspired by this very place for the cave of The Corsair, his famous poem.

Having resumed our course, we will stop in front of Portovenere, with its colourful village and church overlooking the sea. Here we will stop for a swim enjoying the sea in the glow of the sunset and enjoy an aperitif on board with prosecco and white wine (non-alcoholic drinks on request), focaccia or cold dishes.

On the way back to La Spezia, we will pass Le Grazie, a seaside village in the Gulf, and Fezzano. The tour will last between 3 and 4 hours, depending on the time of year.
