Portovenere - Worth the Effort?

Jump to last reply

Based in Florence but taking a couple of overnights (keeping base hotel) (late June).

We'll be arriving from Lucca in the evening and sleeping over in La Spezia.

The next day we'd like to hike from Riomaggiore for a couple of villages. Maybe hang out or train to a couple more and return to Florence in the evening.

We could probably fit in a couple of hours in Portovenere. We could start the day taking a bus or tourist ferry from La Spezia to Portovenere and then after a couple of hours ferry to Riomarggiore.

Or we could start in Riomaggiore and after the villages ferry to Portovenere, spend a couple of hours there and either bus or ferry to La Spezia for the return train to Florence.

We won't have luggage other than a small overnight backpack.

Since we're involved with ferries and trains there's always schedules to align.

Is spending a couple of hours wandering around Portovenere worth the effort?
