  • This little island sits on the "other side" of Palmaria Island (coming from Portovenere). It was once a naval base, abandoned long ago. Picturesque, with incredible military ruins that you can only...  more »
  • UNESCO Heritage Island, managed by the Navy. It can only be visited on the occasion of the feast of St. Venerio, or for groups or schoolchildren. Interesting are the ruins of the 10th century Benedictine church and monastery. The visit of the Lighthouse is very valid

  • Stunning from the sea, with its military remains of the Second World War, its tunnels peeking out from the rocky walls, the history of its lighthouse and the unspoiled nature. You can only visit it during the celebration of St. Venerio on September 13th (we have not yet been lucky enough to go there). I absolutely recommend it in any case along with the tour around the Palmaria and the visit of the nearby Portovenere.

  • Island not open all year round except for the period of San Venerio, patron saint of the Gulf of Spice. It's definitely worth a visit. Two of the most interesting parts: the archaeological area, consisting of the church, the cloister, the cenotaph, the abbey; the other is the lighthouse, from the top of which the view deserves. Landscapedly it is all beautiful and all in all well maintained,the clear water, a fairy tale.

  • This island is private, you can visit only on the day of the patron saint and if the Navy gives permission for guided tours. The road to the lighthouse is easy but a bit tiring. The interior of the lighthouse is exciting with all the memorabilia that is there. But the best thing is when you get to the top and you see the 360-degree panorama, to take your breath away. If you can swim, the water is beautiful and just past the rocky border of the island, it turns blue. A show.

  • The unspoiled island is one of the pearls of the Gulf of Spice; post at the southern end of the gulf offers wonderful views across the coast from Tigullio to Livorno and beyond.
