What people are saying about Porto Venere
Beautiful views- just wish we had more time off the boat
Marco was our guide- he was friendly, accommodating, and great! Even was able to pick up my grandma as she was not able to do the long walk from the ship to the boat. On the tour you will see all five villages of the Cinque Terre with photo opportunities in front of each town and short description variations from your guide of where we are. however you were only able to get off in Monterosa for one hour. By the time we walked up and found a spot for lunch we were really only left with 10 or 15 minutes of sightseeing. Only complaint was I wish there was more time to view the town. However, it was beautiful and the boat ride was great! You can do this tour if you are coming on a cruise. And communication before to confirm tour and meeting location/time is super easy via the WhatsApp app. Great for 23, 51, 65, and 77-year-old.
There is a lot to see in this area and we wished we had had more time. Alessandro, our guide, was very good in covering as much as possible and pointing out the places we should see. Most of the areas can only be reached on foot. Portovenere is beautiful, as well as the two towns we visited in Cinque Terre. Alessandro found us an excellent restaurant for lunch and it was a very enjoyable day.
We had a great day trip to Cinque Terre with Inna and Angelo. The tour stops at two towns (Manarola for approximately 45 minutes and Monterosso for approximately 2 hours). It also includes a boat ride that offers phenomenal views of all five villages. The tour was professional, well-run, and interesting despite the temperature being nearly 100 degrees.
The views were incredible, the guide was very informative and fun. We had a wonderful lunch by the sea with our guide. Definitely someplace to be seen while visiting Italy a once in a life time experience.
The trip was very well organised. Guide was utterly professional, informative and took good care of his group.
