MAGIC OF THE CINQUE TERRE
RIOMAGGIORE - MONTEROSSO - VERNAZZA
Departure from La Spezia
Full day (8 hours in total). Discovering the Cinque Terre coast, a UNESCO heritage site, and three of its pearls.
Tour starts at 10 am – Finishes at 5:45 pm.
After sailing in the Gulf of Poets, we will cross the strait that separates Portovenere from the Palmaria island and then proceed along the wonderful coast of Cinque Terre.
1. Once in Riomaggiore, we will visit the village, the imposing church of San Giovanni Battista and the maze of narrow streets, named “ Caruggi”. Going down towards the Marina, you will embark at the pier for the next destination, Monterosso.
2. In Monterosso you will reach the medieval old town in a few steps. Here you will be able to admire the church dedicated to San Giovanni Battista and then enjoy the landscape and the beach of Fegina from Torre Aurora. Some free time to spend on the most famous beaches or to have a typical Ligurian meal.
Continuation of navigation to the last stop: Vernazza, called the pearl of the Cinque Terre.
3. Vernazza appears to visitors arriving from the sea like 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 built by the Genoese.
Enjoy your guided tour and some free time to spend around the village and get ready to embark and return to La Spezia.
