La Bottega da Rena
As many of you already know, I love Portovenere. I could write about it just about every blog. I always have something to say or show about the place. It's magic to me. There is a cast-full of "characters" that live in the village. One of my favorites is this charming man here:

If you ever have the chance to visit Portovenere, do make a point of visiting Rena and see what goodies he might have for you. Oh, and be sure to leave a little space in your suitcase!
