The Cinque Terre, five towns, is a string of five fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera in the region Liguria. The breath-taking scenery and the quaint pastel-coloured buildings with the generally laid-back feeling that pervades the villages have made them one of Italy’s most popular destinations.

Cinque terre: Riomaggiore

The area is a World Heritage Site and a National Park and can be enjoyed with our English-speaking driver from the port of La Spezia.
There are many different ways of visiting the Cinque Terre but after years of experience we have devised the following and flexible itinerary to get the most from a day trip by private minivan.

Enjoy with a local guide or on your own

From the port of La Spezia you will drive for about 30 minutes to Riomaggiore where you could meet the local guide or 45 minutes to Manarola, the oldest of the Cinque Terre villages, where your driver will accompany you through the pretty village to the boat landing stage.

Cinque terre: Manarola boat experience to Vernazza

From here (weather permitting) you will travel by boat to Vernazza. Enjoy the village’s elegant buildings and natural harbour and for lunch we suggest perhaps some locally-made pesto and crisp white wine. Round 3pm walk to the local Post Office to meet your driver again and drive up to quieter Corniglia. It’s the only village that does not lie directly on the sea. This is the ideal spot for a gelato or a taste of the local Sciacchetrà wine, before heading back to port.

NOTE: Public boats in the Cinque Terre operate subject to weather conditions from April to about the 3rd week of October (please visit : )

When boats are not operative, transfer between towns will be by train or minivan.
