Events and Experiences:

Palio del Golfo

Among the most striking events, to be experienced directly in the city, is the Palio del Golfo at the beginning of August, three days of celebrations with a rowing race as the concluding event, between the 13 maritime borgate of the gulf.

Songs and Lanterns

Every year on 17 August, at sunset, the village of Portovenere is dressed in magic, amidst the liturgical chants of the faithful in procession and the glittering of more than 1,600 lanterns that plunge into the sea from the stacks of the church of San Pietro.

Underwater Christmas

Underwater Christmas is an experience to be witnessed at least once in a lifetime. On Christmas night, divers dive into Passeggiata Morin to bring the shell with the statue of the Baby Jesus out of the sea.
