Favorite thing: Golfo dei Poeti (Poet?s Gulf) is the name of this coast, also known as La Spezia?s Gulf. It spreads from Portovenere and the Cinque Terre till Lerici, being that La Spezia is situated on a bay.

It is said that Byron and Shelley named the area, since both were great admirers of this beautiful coastal landscape. They say that Byron once swam across the bay from Portovenere till San Terenzo to visit Shelley.
