Porto Venere is just lovely, with an amazing cliff top castle, narrow streets, pretty harbour and good harbour restaurants.

Porto Veneri is, in my opinion, the best site of the whole 5 Terre area, even though it's not considered one of the 5... It's beautiful, not so crowded, people are friendly and you can buy spices and pesto all over the place. Highly recommended.

Lord Byron did make a swim from Porto Venere to Lerici. Probably not in same conditions: orange alert and heavy rain.. but still the place is tempting, powerful and likeable. Somehow you feel like you are come "home". Must write a poem or two :)

The views from portovenere across the golfo dei poeti on one side and down the cinque terre on the other are incredible. A small traditional place but really worth seeing.

Bus is convenient, buy tickets from stalls near his-stop. Ask the local people. Regular buses go there.
