La Spezia Private Shore Excursion Portovenere & Cinque Terre
- Wander through the colorful fishing village of Portovenere
- Enjoy Cinque Terre sea views and have great photo opportunities from the local ferry
- Hike beautiful pathways along the cliffs from Vernazza to Corniglia
- Taste the local white Vernaccia wine
From Portovenere, you'll begin your adventure through the five lands of the Cinque Terre, a landscape so unique that in 1998 it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. A great way to discover this area is from the sea. You'll have an option of departing from the harbor to enjoy a ferry ride (additional cost) to Vernazza, a great stop for lunch at a restaurant set on the cliffs, looking out across the bay (lunch at own expense). The ferry journey will take you past Riomaggiore and Manarola with great photo opportunities from the sea.
Meet up with your driver and visit either Corniglia set up on the hill or enjoy a stroll around Riomaggiore or Manarola. You could continue on to the larger and busier town of Monterosso, but please note it is not possible to stop at all the villages in one day and for this tour, it is best to keep the day as flexible as possible and see where your journey will take you. At some places, you may wish to consider using the train and if the weather and sea conditions are good, the local ferry will certainly be recommended. Wherever your journey takes you this day, you will return with wonderful memories to your ship in the port of La Spezia at approximately 17:00.
