Tour Duration: 9 hours
Enjoy a private shore excursion starting directly from your ship in La Spezia. Our driver will pick you up at the port and, in a luxury vehicle, take you to visit the very best of the Cinque Terre. This nine-hour excursion, including a walk along the famous coastal footpath and a boat ride along the Cinque Terre Coastline, will offer you unforgettable sights of the spectacular Cinque Terre region. The Cinque Terre (Five Lands) is a string of five fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera (region Liguria) which until recently were linked only by mule tracks and accessible only by rail or by sea. An ancient system of footpaths is still the best way to visit the five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. In this region, well-known for its beauty, over the centuries people have carefully built terraces to cultivate grapes and olives on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The breathtaking views of harbours far below the wild but hospitable coastline, along with the medieval fortresses make this a memorable holiday. The Cinque Terre, recognized in 1997 by the Unesco Mankind’s World Heritage, are today a National Park and Protected Marine Area with the aim of defending this great cultural heritage and natural environment. Cinque Terre boasts many fine restaurants and some of the best seafood in the world. The region is also known for its fragrant white wine that you really should taste! In Riomaggiore, the first of the Cinque Terre, your driver guide will escort you on a walk along the easy “Lovers Walk” trail, that gliding above the placid Ligurian Sea beneath the mighty cliffs of the Cinque Terre, offers incredible views of the coastline. At Manarola, the most picturesque of the five villages, you will explore a myriad of narrow alleys and pretty colourful squares and you will be thrilled by the Mediterranean scenery with the bluest water, the mixed herbal aromas and the amazing isolated bays. Then, on a shared boat tour along the Cinque Terre Coastline, you will reach Vernazza, another enchanting village of the Cinque Terre. In Vernazza, take a walk through its narrow alleys and enjoy the beautiful sights from the cliff. In this village pay a visit to the beautiful church built in the 1300 over the rocks and then, following some narrow roads, you will visit the Genovese Watch Tower, built against the medieval Pirates. Vernazza, the littlest village of the Cinque Terre, will conquer you with its simplicity, here you will have a real sample of the life once lived from the fishermen. At Vernazza, you’ll have free-time to spend for lunch or you just to treat yourself with a cool drink and the spectacular view. The next is Monterosso, the larger village with 1000 inhabitants. After some shopping around the little local shops, you will visit the two churches and the ancient historical centre. The Tour continues at Corniglia, a medieval hamlet that rests on a hill top above the sea. In Corniglia you can enjoy some of the finest views of the Cinque Terre and taste some of its famous wines produced since the Romans were here. As the visit of Corniglia is over, you will be accompanied to the port of La Spezia. Return to the ship by 5:00 pm.
