Cinque Terre Shore excursion from La Spezia

The Cinque Terre National Park in Liguria

When we say Cinque Terre (Five Lands) we refer to small five villages along the Ligurian Coast, today part of UNESCO. Indeed, they stand out for their historical and natural beauty. Here, you will find small colorful houses, nestled along the cliffs and at the same time many terraced vineyards surrounding them. This is the perfect example of how men and nature learnt to live together during the centuries. To UNESCO belong also the village of Portovenere and three tiny islands (Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto). Moreover, this is also a marine protected area. During our Shore Excursion from La Spezia to Cinque Terre by Minivan (No Tour Leader), you will visit the villages of Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza and Corniglia. Our driver will give you all the info you need (ferryboat timetable, meeting point for the stop in Corniglia, what to see and what to do in the villages etc).

  • Vernazza: many people think it is the most beautiful of the Cinque Terre villages. It feature a nice small harbour, a castle up on the hill and a charming church facing the small bay.
