We've been to the Cinque Terre a couple of times so when we were tendering at Portovenere we decided not to try to get back there again. Plus the weather was cold and windy, quite rough for the tenders and, this being November, the regular ferry boats up the coast were out of season. We hadn't been in La Spezia so decided that would be our goal. Thinking we could just grab a taxi for the 20 or 30 minute ride, we didn't do a lot of research. Well, a taxi in Portovenere (at least this time of year) wasn't that easy to come by. The bus would have been a better idea but we finally were able to call a taxi driver who said he would show up and he did. We wandered a little in the old center; La Spezia has a great park near the water. Deciding we should have the last official Italian meal of this trip we stumbled into a great little place that had been in the same family for over 50 years. They took very good care of us!
