The buildings on the hill were built very close one to each other. I see they didn't much place to build them.
Italians living in Portovenere (and not only there) used to dry their bed-clothes and clothes at all... on the street - you can find there... all kind of clothes hehe :-)
CATS OF PORTOVENERE
I met many cats in Portovenere, it seems they are... doing nothing, I would like to follow their lifestyle sometimes :-)
HOUSES AT SUNSET
Colours depend on light - during sunrise and especially sunsets they are more yeallo-red hehe.
HOUSES AND THEIR COLOURS
Pay attention to specific colours of the old houses - pastele colours of red, pink and yellow mainly. Don't they look great?
Why did they use to paint all houses in these colours?
