The small romantic harbor is lined with colored houses and medieval streets. Portovenere’s most famous sights are the medieval town center, the San Pietros Church, San Lorenzo Church and Portovenere’s Fortress – the Andria Doria Castle:

  • San Pietro Church originated as an early Christian church made of black marble dating back from the 6th century.

We can plan and organize all civil, catholic or protestant weddings in Portovenere as well as symbolic marriages and blessings.

Palmaria Island wedding

The small Mediterranean island Palmaria lies in the Gulf of La Spezia and close to Portovenere. Beautiful small beaches with turquoise water, small “trattorias” and hiking paths through Mediterranean macchia turn the island into a pure Mediterranean paradise. Palmaria is accessible by ferry, and water taxi.

Palmaria and Portovenere are the ideal place for Mediterranean wedding receptions, civil weddings, symbolic and religious weddings.
