    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.

Great walk along the Cinque Terre coast! The visit of the 2 villages was very good and our guide, Sabrina, spoke impeccable French. Thank you to her for these fascinating explanations on this magnificent region. After having done the Cinque Terre from the inside, it was really good to see them on the sea side!
