PRIVATE TOUR – An e-bike trip to Porto Venere

Enjoy an easy but panoramic bike tour, thanks to a comfortable electric-bike! You will discover the well-known Gulf of Poets along the Ligurian Sea. A pleasant stop at the small and cute village of Porto Venere to sip an aperitif will be your “happy ending”
Meeting with a private qualified cycling guide in La Spezia for an easy half-day tour in order to discover the famous Gulf of Poets, a wide and deep inlet of the Ligurian Sea coastline, along which there are the well-known villages of Porto Venere and Lerici. On August 30th, 1910 that nickname was given to it by the playwright Sem Benelli, who was used to stay at his own villa overlooking the sea of San Terenzo, with reference to the fact that, over the centuries, many other poets, writers and artists lived in the villages of the gulf, since they were struck by the beauty of that “water amphitheater”. First of all, Dante Alighieri, then the writer David Herbert Lawrence, the poets Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, the latter drowned there during a sudden storm in 1822.

After leaving  La Spezia, you will cycle towards Biassa, under the shade of centuries-old chestnut trees and you will admire the terracings where the grapes, from which Sciacchetrà, the famous wine of the Cinque Terre, is produced, are cultivated. You will continue towards Le Grazie, located in a panoramic position inside a splendid inlet, then you will get to Portovenere, well-known for the famous Church of San Pietro, in front of the large Piazza Spallanzani, the suggestive Byron Cave and the medieval street Capellini, lined with shops and restaurants. Stop for an aperitif and a relax break; then back to La Spezia.
