The charming villages in the Ligurian Coast on our Private Escorted Tour from La Spezia

When we say Cinque Terre we refer to five small villages along the Ligurian Coast: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. These villages, together with Portovenere and three small islands off its coast are on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List since 1997. The reason is the beauty of the environment. Indeed, you can see there pastel coloured houses, nestled along the cliffs and surrounded by beautiful terraced vineyards and rows of olive trees. During our Cinque Terre Private Escorted Tour from Cruise Terminal of La Spezia, you will have the chance to visit the most beautiful villages in this area.
Visit Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso, PortoVenere* with our Private Escorted Tour from Cruise Terminal of La Spezia

From the Cruise Terminal in La Spezia you will walk to the railway station with our tour leader to take a train to the first village. Once within the Cinque Terre region, we will preferably move by ferryboat, but that is subject to weather conditions. In case of rough sea and ferryboat not working, you will have to travel by train. In that case, our tour leader could modify the order of the visits and/or the itinerary. *For example, in Portovenere there is no train station, that means it is possible to get there only by ferryboat. We usually travel from South to North and visit the villages in this order: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.

The villages we are going to visit have surely something in common for their beauty. However, it is also true that each of them features something special and unique compared to others. For example, the sandy beach in Monterosso is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (Forbes 2006).
