  • Beautiful medival castle that sits on the top of the hill. Totally worth visiting if you are in Lerici. From there you have a stunning view of the city and overlooking the Gulf of Poets
  • Lerici is for sure one of the underated place of Italy. This is an fantastic place. Extremely beautiful and tourist friendly. The view from the castle is simply amazing and breathtaking. The port is filled with little boats. On the city streets you can find lots and lots of fantastic restaurants with authentic italian taste- family owned ones with care and love for food. Definitely recommend it. Bonus: the sand of the little beach is simply great.
