Full description

Experience the Cinque Terre coast by boat and take in gorgeous views of vineyards terraces and charming buildings from the sea. Make time to stop at Riomaggiore, Monterosso, and Vernazza along the way.

Start at La Spezia's harbor and sail through the Gulf of the Poets admiring the magnificent village of Portovenere and the island of Palmaria from the boat. Reach the first village of Cinque Terre, Riomaggiore, passing by the mesmerizing coastline with its famous terraced vineyard landscape and colorful houses. The city is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. Here, visit the imposing church of San Giovanni Battista with your guide and enjoy some free time to stroll through the narrow streets. In Monterosso al Mare, explore the medieval historic center and marvel at the parish church dedicated to St. John, the Baptist. Then continue the sailing to Vernazza, the pearl of the Cinque Terre. Vernazza presents itself to visitors as the prow of a ship: most of the village is in fact built on a small promontory that ends at the sea with an imposing fortification system.

At the end of the tour, enjoy free time and take the chance to taste the local wine and food, or go for a swim in the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean.

My partner and I found this activity through the internet and we were very satisfied with it because in one day it allows you to quickly visit three important places in the Cinque Terre, leaving you some free time in each of them and having a short explanation. of the guide. Experience definitely to be recommended for those who, like us, do not have many days to dedicate to each location. Excellent value for money.

The cruise was very nice, the guides were nice and prepared. The departure and arrival times from La Spezia were also respected. I would manage the queues a little better to take the boat back to the various places given the little space due to the conformation of the territory. The very characteristic and particularly attractive villages from the sea.

Superb trip! On the other hand, plan a time to park because there is no parking nearby and a lot of resident parking or 2 hours. We experienced this because we didn't plan enough time for parking. The boat left without my partner, fortunately with the advice of the guides, he was able to join us at the first stopover. Can be indicated on the tickets the car parks where we can park.
