I had a great experience at Rifugio Muzzerone. For 20 euro for the meal, the food just keeps coming (3 or 4 courses) and includes fresh fish, antipasto, dessert and pasta. The views are true to the pictures. However, be warned there is a 20-30...More

Don't get me wrong. It is quite a hike to get up here. But if you make it you will be treated to one of the most magical meals of your life. With the fireflies at night, and amazing panoramic views of the sea you...More

The place is wonderful, with a view you will hardly forget. The host can tell you everything you may dream to know about the plants, the animals, the geology and the hikes of the place, and much more than this. Last, but not at all...More

I can imagine why a few people complained. It is not easy to get to... you have to walk a trail in the woods for about 10 minutes.... but I think this is good at weeding out those who are not serious about finding a...More

Rifugio Muzzerone is a MUST if you want to enjoy a quiet meal in the open, surrounded by the most beautiful nature and views, looking onto Porto Venere and the Gulf of La Spezia. Whenever I have guests from overseas I take them there and...More
