Located on the northwest coast of Italy, the village of Portovenere is an easy day trip by city bus or ferry for cruise ship travelers docked in La Spezia. A walk along the main street in the city's Old Town puts you between two walls of colorful storefronts topped with residential apartments. Those looking for a snack or wanting to buy something to remember their stay will find a variety of options. It's fun to wander down a few of the city streets that look interesting just to see what you can find!

Which UNESCO World Heritage Sites have been your favorites?
We had just one port day in La Spezia during our transatlantic cruise between Italy and Fort Lauderdale. Since we had already spent several days in Cinque Terre before the first of our back-to-back cruises, we headed off to Portovenere. Although we knew that Cinque Terre National Park was a UNESCO site, we didn't realize that Portovenere, Italy was also on the list!
