The North West Italy region
Italy, with good reason, is one of the most popular European destinations for travellers. Rich not only in art, history, and culture, but also in the pleasures of life: good food, wine, and warm and gracious people. Italy with its 20 regions offers a variety of itineraries for every tourist and every taste. Italy is truly a dream destination.
Italian Riviera Villas offers vacation rentals throughout Italy and specializes in the Ligurian and Tuscan Regions with over 20,000 days booked and 15 years of experience we are proudly the oldest web agent for vacation rentals in Liguria.
La Spezia is the southest province of Liguria and is famous for its seaside and the little villages. Those are an idyllic retreat where you can dine on the bounty of the sea, sip the wine of the region, swim, or watch the brilliant sun set over the Mediterranean Sea.
Five minutes apart by train, the villages are far removed from the hustle and noise of the French Riviera and the cities of Italy. Hike the centuries old mule trails and the footpaths and climb the Romanesque stairs that wind 500 to 1,000 feet above the sea. Terraced vineyards alternate with strips of olive trees and a heady perfume of spice emanates from the woods as you traverse from village to village.
Each village has its own unique character and all remain unspoiled as if suspended in time. The villages are not easily accessible by road, so cars are seldom seen. The "milk train" that runs through the tunnels from Rome to Paris makes regular and frequent stops at each village. For a spectacular view, hop on the "tourist boat" that ferries both locals and tourist from village to village and to major ports along the Italian Riviera
Portovenere has Roman origins as can be seen in the San Pietro church. "Portus Veneris" is found in certain historical writings as far back as 161 A.C. This amazing church is open to the public if you are up to climbing the steep and well-worn steps. There are spectacular views both inside and out. The unique and gaily painted homes along the harbour are very tall and narrow. It is said that the residents would pour olive oil on the pirates from the upper floors.
The "Grotta Byron", where poets Byron and Shelly would go for a swim, is visible but not accessible to the public. Amazing would best describe this historical site that is carved into the rugged cliffs.
