Starting from Portovenere, reach the islands of the Gulf of La Spezia, rich in history and mystery. Reachable only by sea, Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto – together with the Cinque Terre – have been UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1997.

The Palmaria Island, the only one of the three islands where access is allowed, is characterized by spectacularly different landscapes depending on its faces: the eastern side descends gradually to the sea covered by a rich Mediterranean vegetation; the western side is defined by steep cliffs that reach 188 m of altitude.

The Tino and the Tinetto, military district and therefore inaccessible to the public, are characterized by an unspoiled nature that offers breathtaking views.

With this excursion, discover the history behind these fascinating places.

Porto Venere today presents itself to the tourist’s visit in an almost unchanged form over the course of 8 centuries: an incredible panorama, characteristic and picturesque views, the uniqueness of the ancient portals of the tower houses that align tightly with each other on the “carruggi”, in addition to its naturalistic beauty.

The Palmaria Island, the only one of the three islands where access is allowed, is characterized by spectacularly different landscapes depending on its faces: the eastern side descends gradually to the sea covered by a rich Mediterranean vegetation; the western side is defined by steep cliffs that reach 188 m of altitude.

 

South of the Palmaria is the Tino Island, recognizable by its triangular and rocky shape, abundant with maritime pine, holm oak and myrtle. Military district for decades, on the top of the island at 122m height is the military lighthouse, which has always been a guide for sailors.

 

The Tinetto Island has an extension of just over half an hectare, reaches a maximum height of 17 meters and is a hundred meters from the island of Tino. The first monastic settlement dating back to the 6th century came to life on the Tinetto, which then expanded onto the island of Tino after the destruction of the monastery by the Saracen hand and later on to the Palmaria.
