Discover Porto Venere for your wedding in Liguria

In what is known as the Gulf of Poets (that is, the last stretch of the Ligurian coast that  goes from Porto Venere to Lerici), couples will be able to find an enchanting refuge from  the frenzy and pronounce the most important yes looking their love in the eyes ,  accompanied by the calming sound of the sea waves, as the setting sun illuminates the  couple as they celebrate the beginning of a life together. 

Porto Venere enjoys a spectacular view of the Mediterranean Sea, and it is easy to get lost  in the endless alleys of the town, distracted by the colorful houses, the imposing Doria  castle fortress and the Palazzata, a row of towers that once served as protection against  attacks by enemies. 

The town, together with the most beautiful islands of Liguria: Palmaria, Tino, Tinetto and  the Cinque Terre, have been a UNESCO heritage site since 1997.
