The Italian Riviera is many things depending on your choice of destination. Portofino is the glamorous queen of the Italian Riviera while Portovenere and Cinque Terre are rustic and charming. Portovenere inspired Lord Byron who is said to have penned his Childe Harold's Pilgrimage here and where the writer Shelley often vacationed. Portovenere’s church of St. Peter, built on a promontory dominates the entire bay and is one of the most amazing backdrops for Portovenere's wedding photos. Regardless of the location you select, the views everywhere will be heart stopping beautiful.
