The Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets
"Millions of tourists every year visit them, to you we offer the opportunity to experience them."
Five charming villages of colorful houses that are reflected in the sea creatingunique sceneries in the world,hundreds of paths betweennature andfairy-tale landscapes,ancient buildings stronger than time,jagged, pristine and almost inaccessiblebeaches,crystal clearwaters whose clarity leaves you breathless. These are the elements that have made theCinque Terre one of themost iconicand dreamed ofdestinationsin the world. Destinations that despite their popularity have alwaysstood out from mass tourism.
Corniglia,Monterosso al Mare,Vernazza,Manarola andRiomaggiore are part of theWorld Heritage of Humanity protected byUNESCO since 1997. Thelocal population, aware of the immense treasure they preserve, has alwaysprotected every village, everyroad, everybeach andevery cliff from modernity at any cost, from uncontrolled building and from the logic of intensive tourism. A choice that for many years appeared courageous and that today is rewarded by aninternational interest that few other destinations in the world can boast.
TheGulf of La Spezia, known as theGulf of Poets, with the wonder of itsamphitheater of water has attracted and inspired some of the most famous writers and artists in history: fromDante toPetrarch, fromLord Byron toCharles Dickens, fromVirginia Woolf toRichard Wagner. According to some scholars, in the background ofBotticelli'sVenus you can clearly recognize this inlet. Today, the Gulf retains unchanged its spectacular beauty, whichyou can navigate on board private boats, also for hire, or withorganized tours.
For itslocation, for theproposed itineraries, for theconventions at your disposal, for the 'slow attitude that represents and embodies,Belvedere 9 offers you the opportunity to experience each of theCinque Terre andthe Gulf of Poets asfew people can do every year.
