Exploring the Ligurian Coast. Read our blog!

Some hints about the villages:

  • Riomaggiore: the southernmost village of the Cinque Terre, characterized by typical housetowers on the cliffs. You will have time to walk around the village and discover marvellous streets and houses.
  • Manarola: the oldest village among the Cinque Terre. Have a look a the past coloured houses and the many local shops in its streets.
  • Vernazza: by many considered the most beautiful of the five villages. This is the typical Ligurian fisherman village with a small harbor, a castle and a church. In its narrow streets you will find many local shops where to buy the typical products of this land (authentic Ligurian pesto sauce, limoncino, honey, extra virgin olive oil and wine).

Shore Excrusions from Livorno to Cinque Terre

You will love the Monterosso Village

Monterosso is the largest village in the Cinque Terre National Park and during the summer season you will see rows of coloured beach umbrellas along its coast. Indeed, you find  here the only sandy beach of the Cinque Terre. For this reason many Ligurian people also come here during the season to have a swim.
A promontory divides the village in two parts. On one side, you will find the beach and the Railway Station. On the other one, the small harbour for ferry boats, facing the old town with its narrow streets and old buildings. The alleys are very suggestive and full of bars, restaurants and shops.

In Monterosso you will have free time to relax, enjoy some shopping and, if you wish, swim in the beautiful blue water.

Remember that Monterosso has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world according to Forbes 2006.

    During our last cruise in the Mediterranean Sea, we’ve booked a tour with BellaItaliaTour in order to discover Cinque Terre. It has been a really beautiful day. They were really organized, so everything goes well and we had wonderful times in total relax. We enjoy Cinque Terre. Each village is a real gem. We appreciated especially Monterosso, where we had a real Italian lunch, with Spaghetti al Pesto: wonderful!
    We came back to Livorno timely for departure, exactly as promised.
    We suggest to visit Cinque Terre and we suggest also to do it with the expert guides of
    We were really satisfied. 5 stars!
    If we will have another travel in Italy, we surely will book a private tour in Tuscany with them!

    We just returned from a cruise and port stop in Livorno. We booked the tour to the Cinque Terre and a quick stop at the Leaning Tower of Pisa with your company, BellaItalia. I couldn’t have been more pleased with this tour and give it 5 stars! We were picked up promptly at the port and driven by van to the village of Riomaggiore where we met another guide who took us by boat to the other villages in the Cinque Terre of Corniglia, and Vernazza, and Monteresso. We were given time to browse the shops and eat lunch. We then returned by train to meet the other driver who took us back to the port after quick stop in Pisa. The scenery was absolutely stunning and weather was gorgeous. Our guide told us where to get the best pictures, where to eat and shop and we are excited to return next June again. We were returned on time to our port and the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly and were able to really customize our trip from start to finish. I am also a travel agent and have traveled extensively and this was a top notch tour company that I have already recommended to several of my clients. I can’t rate it high enough!

    Bellatour was fantastic. We are grandparents who travel with 5 and 7 year old grandsons and their parents. We were on a cruise docking in Livorno, We had seen Florence in the past and wanted Cinque Terra tour. Not a lot upon searching but found Bellatour with some great reviews. Bellatour is fantastic! We were met at the dock by Libera and her driver. In the van and away we went. Her mastery of the English language is very good. We had a very delightful and educational drive to our first stop in the Cinque Terra area, while we strolled the town, she picked up our boat tickets. We took the boat to 3 villages and the train back. The boys had time to swim for a bit and we had time for casual walking and shopping.
    Great quick stop in Pisa on the way back, even though it was side trip. I can only say this is one of the best tours we have ever done.

    Cinque terre is not to be missed. We were able to go to 4 of the 5 towns. Each is unique and beautiful in its own way. The boat ride was great to be able to see the towns from the water.

    We decided to do a shore excursion from the port of Livorno to Cinque Terre. It was a long way out and time was limited but the efficiency of Marta and our driver (sorry I could not recall his name) made our trip completely enjoyable. Will definitely recommend Bellaitalia Tours if you are planning a shore excursion to Cinque Terre. The price is reasonable, the car is clean and Marta gave us a lot of relevant information not only about the 5 villages but the places we passed along the way.

    Picked up at port in a comfortable van, a lovely guide who provided interesting information and facts and the stunning and beautiful villages of the Cinque Terre… a day to remember.

    We were two couples in Livorno Port on 12 September 2018 and we had pre-booked a private tour to Cinque Terre. I cannot speak highly enough of this tour. Luca was a magic guide – he gave great commentary, negotiated the ferries so well and kept us informed. Salvatore was a great driver and very polite. Cinque Terre and the whole experience of this tour was a highlight of our six week trip. Loved the place and will definitely be back. Thanks so much Luca and Salvatore. Don’t hesitate to book with BellaItalia.

    We were cruising and decided to book a private shore excursion to Cinque Terre. It was the smartest choice we made. Marta, our tour guide was expecting right in time in the port (the company has clearance to enter the port, so no need to use the shuttle or walk!) and we headed to Cinque Terre. Marta was amazing explaining to us all there was to know about the place and left us free time for ourselves. We took the ferries/boats to move from one town to another and everything was smooth and peaceful! Cinque Terre is a must see and better if you hired this company.
