Panoramic & Refreshing Summer Cocktails at Venus Bar

Venus Bar is one of the coolest spots where to grab a drink in the Gulf of Poets. It features an amazing terrace overlooking the ancient harbour of Portovenere and the lush vegetation of Palmaria Island.

 

Charming Indoors

If you’d rather sip your drink indoors, you can have an aperitivo under the ancient vaulted brick ceilings, which belonged to the XVII-century monastery that was once housed in the building.

Or you can enjoy wine and food in the charming tasting rooms called “Sala Magnolia” and “Sala Moby Dick”… the names are self-explanatory if you have a look at the photos ?.
