Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Porto Venere

Stroll through the narrow alleyways of this lively and colorful fishing village to reach the church of San Pietro with beautiful views across the bay. A great way to discover this area is from the sea and we recommend departing from the harbor to enjoy the ferry ride (additional cost) to Vernazza arriving in perfect time for lunch. The ferry journey will take you past the villages of Riomaggiore and Manarola with great photo opportunities from the sea.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Vernazza

This is a great stop for lunch. Vernazza, with its proud fishing traditions, faces a little bay surrounded by cliffs and two ancient watch-towers and dominated by the church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia built in 1318 with its foundations in the sea.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Corniglia

After lunch meet up with your driver for the short drive to Corniglia, the oldest village built around the XI century. Unlike the other villages, it is not directly adjacent to the sea and instead is set on top of a promontory surrounded by vineyards, terraces and olive groves; connected to the sea by 365 steps. For those who walk or hike there's a beautiful uphill trail from Vernazza to Corniglia! Stop here for gelato or enjoy a Vermentino wine-tasting (additional charge of around 5/10euro per person).

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Cinque Terre

This tour does have some flexibility. There will be moments you will want to stop the car and gaze out over the incredible views for some great photo opportunities. There may be time to stop and enjoy a wine-tasting of the wonderfully refreshing Vermentino white wine which is renowned in this terraced landscape. This is a day where you can slow down and enjoy a special Italian adventure as you journey through an incredible landscape.
