The Doria Castle sits up above the town of Portovenere. The views from the top are breathtaking.
To get up to the castle you must walk through the cutest alley ways and winding stairs. As long as you are going uphill you are bound to end up at the castle.
The castle was built by the Doria family in 1161. The views of the Mediterranean Sea and Ligurian coast are divine and is a must see for anyone going to Italy!
