The Gulf of Poets (Golfo dei Poeti) closes to the East the stretch of coast of the Cinque Terre: although it does not stoically belong to the 5 Terre, it represents its physical and panoramic continuation, although with important differences including the white cliffs that plunge down to the sea.
Today the area is entirely included in the Regional Natural Park of Portovenere (bordering the National Park of the 5 Terre) and the walls called "del Muzzerone" have been explored since the 70s by the raiders of the Italian Navy, becoming one of the most beautiful coastal spots in Italy. It rises in contexts of extraordinary beauty. Its white cliffs plunging sheer into a blue sea as well as being covered by beautiful itineraries offer a natural spectacle of rare beauty. A certainly suggestive context where seagulls, imperial crows, and hawks show off in splendid performances.
Almost all the areas have no convenient access and perhaps this is the reason why some particularly wild areas are still preserved so well.
The cave of Byron, the historical village of Portovenere, the pedestrian connection with Rionaggiore (5 Terre), the beautiful and wild Palmaria island, which is so close to the coast, make these places ideal for a climbing experience not only limited to climbing but rich in cultural and sporting possibilities.
