Portovenere is very small, but lovely. Colorful houses, medieval castle and church on the cliffs. Winding, steep, cobbled stoned alleys. The shops are geared for the many tourists that visit. Don't expect any local craft. The two churches and castle you must visit. You can easily spent half a day here, eat a great lunch, walk it off, sightseeing.
