A scooter and four hours to fall in love!
The Gulf inevitably mesmerizes visitors and travelers worldwide: the fishermen’s villages of San Terenzo and Tellaro, the narrow streets of Lerici, the Blue Venus beach and, towering majestically over the waters, the ancient Castle of Lerici, stronghold of the one of the most beloved bays of the eastern Ligurian Riviera once sought after by the powers of Genova, Pisa and Firenze. And there’s no better way to complete this stunning ride in the Gulf than with a mouthwatering ice cream tasting and an enchanting seaside Aperitivo.
The extreme beauty of the place itself was almost surreal: the sea at our feet… it was as if we were surrounded by some sort of enchantment…
These were Mary Shelley‘s words talking about the bay, and her fascination was no much different from David H. Lawrence‘s, Henry James‘s or Eugenio Montale‘s, nor from Albero Moravia‘s and Italo Calvino‘s, all of whom were in love for this area and spent seasons and years in its villages. And it is thanks to their work and presence that today it is known as the Gulf of Poets.
