Sarzana also has a train station with direct trains to Pisa, Florence, the Cinque Terre and Genova. The Gulf of the Poets is an enclave with a group of three islands at its tip, fishing villages with exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in craggy bays around Fiascherino or Tellaro. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which runs between Lerici, La Spezia and Portovenere or further on to The Cinque Terre. The Cinque Terre is a UNESCO World heritage site, comprising five little villages, clinging to the sea cliffs, full of excellent seafood restaurants and with excellent beach swimming. The name Gulf of the Poets is from the literary connection as some of the world’s most famous poets including Shelley, Byron and D H Lawrence who all lived here at some time.
