Multicolored facades marked by windows, shutters, balconies, and laundry hung out to dry decorate the vertical dwellings that overlook the boat harbor at Portovenere, Italy. Strong sunshine along the Mediterranean seacoast is a cause for frequent repainting of the exterior walls of these attached residences. This medieval fishing village on the Italian Riviera is among the most picturesque but lesser-known tourist towns in the Liguria region.
