The Cinque Terre National Park from a private boat
In Italian, “Cinque Terre” means “Five Lands”. They are Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. The environment is magnificent and many visitors come here every year to explore this area. These five gems, together with Portovenere and the three tiny islands (Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto), are part of UNESCO since 1997. The reason is the coexistence of the natural environment together with the old fishing villages, terraced vineyards and olive trees created by men. Indeed, the man presence over the centuries did not alter the beautiful environment. This is its distinguishing feature. From our comfortable private boat, you will see:
- Riomaggiore, the most oriental village with parallel colourful facades ,
- Manarola, with its nativity scene on the hill,
- Vernazza, with its small natural harbour and the Church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia,
- Corniglia, built on a rocky promontory about 100 meters a.s.l.,
- Monterosso, the northernmost and largest village.
Enjoy your free time the enchanting village of Portovenere
Portovenere is located on the Ligurian Riviera, south of the Cinque Terre villages. It also belongs to UNESCO together with the Five Lands of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Since there is no railway station in Portovenere, a private boat tour is the best option.
