The local picturesque village of Montemarcello on the promintory that seperates Liguria and Tuscany and overlooks both the Gulf of the Poets, the Magra River and Tuscan coastline with the striking jagged mountains of Carrara in the distance.
The village was built by the Roman consul Claudio Marcello who conquered the area in 155 BC and there are still several Roman remains to explore. During the 13 th century a stone wall and look out tower were built to protect the town from the invasion of the Saracens.
There are a couple of excellent restaurants in town and a few shops.
There are 2 small beaches which can be reached along a hiking trail. Punta Corvo is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy and Punta Bianca is it's smaller version. The town of Tellaro, considered one of the prettiest village of Italy, can also be reached on foot along a trail that meanders down the hillside towards the sea along a sweet smelling path of Mediterranean shrubs.
Lerici is in the heart of the Gulf of the Poets, a pearl of the Mediterranean. Shelley, Byron and D. H. Lawrence all lived there at some time. An enclave with a group of three islands at its tip, it has fishing villages with exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in craggy bays around Fiascherino or Tellaro or on the golden sandy beaches of Lerici and San Terenzo.
Lerici and San Terenzo are dominated by a castle and with views to the islands on the opposite side of the bay. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which run between, Lerici, La Spezia and Portovenere or on to The Cinque Terre, five villages strung along the terraced cliffs looking out to the sea. These villages are completely unspoilt and, until recently, could only be reached by boat or by train. Anyone visiting the Cinque Terre should take a walk along the cliff paths which link one village to the next, stop in one of the bars or restaurants and try the anchovies marinated in olive oil and garlic, served with bread and delicate white wine made from the grapes that grow up the steep terraces above the villages.
