  • In the beautiful town of Porto Venere, on the way to the church of San Pietro, one of the touristic targets of the town, we will leave on our right the mater Naturae statue and if we continue a little we will see a stone arch with a fence and a commemorative plaque that gives to cceso to a small rocky cove where the poet was said to come to meditate, and is said to have softened the 7-kilometre journey between Porto Venere and Lerici to meet his friends, the writers Percy and Mary Shelley. The site is beautiful, and it is worth taking a walk in the area, although in summer season it is full of tourists.
