St. PIETRO’s CHURCH OF PORTOVENERE
The grey stone church with white marble inlays dates back from the 11th century and is one of
the world’s most desired wedding locations, which is why those interested need to reserve the
church at least one year beforehand. This is not surprising for those who have visited the
church – it is rather isolated, extremely romantic and it provides a 360 degrees view of one of
the most beautiful places in the world, the Portovenere Gulf, the gate to the Cinque Terre. Next
to it, the Byron Grotto with its deep, blue waters, where Lord Byron used to come to meditate,
represents the perfect landscape for unforgettable and unique photographs.
