Boat Tour of Gulf of Poets
You will take a private boat tour of the famous islands of the “Gulf of Poets”. A gorgeous bay that is full of quaint little villages with colorful buildings on steep cliffs. The impressive cliffs, grottos, and fortresses of this beautiful stretch of coast were loved by numerous poets and writers such as Byron and Shelley.
The Byron’s Grotto is named after an event when the English poet Lord Byron swam across the bay of Portovenere to visit another fellow poet, Shelley. The beautiful cove is located at the end of the Protovenere’s promontory, just below the 13th century Gothic Church of St. Peter. The view at Byron’s Grotto highlights the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. The Byron Cup, swimming challenge is held every year to commemorate Byron’s legendary action.
