Porto Venere, Italy

Porto Venere was a hidden Gem we were not expecting! When we got in line to get our boat tickets to tour Cinque Terre the lady selling us the tickets asked if we wanted to add Porto Venere for an extra 10 euro. We decided, "what the heck!" 

We hadn't ever heard of it but when we pulled up and around the castle we were shocked! The whole city is a fotress from the castle to the colorful town building, they were all built for defense! 

This place was so much fun to explore, we walked around it for hours, got gelato and just took in the beauty. Definitely add it to the list if you find yourself in Chinque Terre.
