2000: Portovenere (Teppei)

An atmospheric evening view of the waterfront of this historic town in Liguria - at the eastern end of the Italian Riviera. Founded around two thousand years ago, it was named originally after the goddess Venus: this explains the original title Viinasu no minato, or "Port of Venus". There are some variations - the version on the box is "Porto Vénere" which also appears to be genuine.
