Pretty Portovenere is just a 35 min ferry ride from Riomaggiore. This little fishing village is not officially part of the Cinque Terre coast, however some count it unofficially as city zero. It’s famous for it’s colourful fortified wall of buildings along the water and has a look similar to the those on the Cinque Terre. Narrow alleyways, quaint little shop fronts (try the pesto & seafood here!) and lots of great food too. If you have time, do take a trip out of Portovenere to escape the sometimes suffocating tourist crowds in the five villages of the Cinque Terre. It’s noticeably more quiet here and is a nice change of scenery too :-)
