At the end of our tour of the Cinque Terre the boat took us to the town of Porto Venere. This is a lovely little town close to Cinque Terre.
We had some time to take a look around here and I enjoyed walking in this cosy town. We did not have the time to go up to the old church that is at the top of a hill, but must say the people living in towns like these must get really fit, because they mostly consists of hills.
After we had a little look around we went to a little restaurant and had a wine tasting. The wines we tasted was white wines from the area and from Cinque Terre. The one from Cinque Terre you could taste a little salt, coming from growing the grapes in the steep hills so close to the sea. We were also served the local olives, and Farinata a savoury pancake made with chickpea flour
