Portovenere tends to leave quite an impression on travel bloggers who visit it, and at Discover Portovenere we are always excited to read travellers’ reviews and testimonials about the Gulf of Poets. Today we would like to share the experience of American digital marketing strategist, freelance writer, and blogger Georgette Jupe. You might know her as Girl in Florence, and if you don’t know her blog yet, we strongly advise you to check it out: it’s packed with interesting and useful travel tips and stories about Florence and Italy in general.
Georgette visited Portovenere with her husband Nico, and super-cute beagle Ginger, in late April. Although they were greeted by some rain, nothing stopped them and they made the most out of their short break near the Cinque Terre.
The article by Girl in Florence is called “36 Hours in Portovenere” and is a great guide to the medieval sea village on the Gulf of Poets.
“Most people skip the UNESCO-recognized Portovenere for the famous Cinque Terre, or at the very most, come for a 15-minute walk through the town’s one street. And what a mistake that is, considering what a true gem of a place it is and how utterly uncrowded it gets compared to its famous neighbors”.
