Portovenere & Cinque Terre Boat Tour Description

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and explore the Ligurian coast. Our Cinque Terre boat tour will allow you to visit this earthly paradise composed of five villages suspended on cliffs overlooking the sea.

Your trip from Florence to Cinque Terre will kick off with a pleasant boat ride with which you’ll reach Portovenere. This picturesque village is one of the most popular of Cinque Terre villages beloved with the perfect balance between rustic architecture and natural environment. Next, you’ll continue on a boat to the lovely Manarola. The boat ride which will give you the most amazing views of Cinque Terre (Picture time!).

Once there, you’ll have free time to wander around and explore the village on your own. Afterwards, the tour will take you to Monterosso, the ‘pearl of Cinque Terre.’ This quaint fishing village is dotted with lovely beaches and lush vegetation covering the rocks. If you decide to take advantage of the optional lunch with us, you’ll savor an authentic Ligurian meal in a local restaurant.

In the afternoon you will have even more free time to either take a swim or a walk around the village some more. From Monterosso, you’ll head to Vernazza, a village watched over by ruins of a Medieval castle. Again, you’ll have free time to explore on your own before going back to the bus and back to Florence.

WINTER SEASON: From November 2 to March 31 the boat services are suspended. The tour is available but relies on train and bus connection for transport between villages.

History Sneak Peek

Cinque Terre is one of the most stunning destinations famous for its hiking trails, crystal clear waters, and gastronomic delicacies. Still, it’s not as mainstream which makes it a great refuge from the usual tourist crowds. It only became popular in the 60s. Until then, the villages lived their quiet fishing life hidden from the world.

The impact of tourism on the area is under strict control as Cinque Terre is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been a part of the National Park of Cinque Terre since 1999.

Regarding politics, Cinque Terre has never played a significant role on the European historical scene. For the most part, the area quietly endured and accepted external political forces such as Pisa or Genoa. In other words, Cinque Terre region has been a place of peaceful farmers and fishermen, occasionally pillaged by pirates. Locals often had to run for cover running into the forests.

Spend an unforgettable day exploring the Ligurian landscapes and the warm and welcoming Cinque Terre villages. Book our Cinque Terre and Portovenere Tour and enjoy the rocky coasts riddled with sea caves, beaches, and hiking paths.
