Description

Cinque Terre is a series of 5 fishing villages that sit at sea level. The roads in and out of these villages are restricted as to size and number of vehicles. Therefore we will leave you at the first of the villages and at that time, your driver will set a time and place to meet you for your return. This will allow you to 'village hop' by taking the small fishing boats that move from one to another of the villages. Stop and stay wherever you wish. Enjoy some lunch at one of the lovely cafes.

After meeting up with your driver, you'll depart from Genoa in your private, air-conditioned vehicle. Your first stop will be La Spezia, where you'll board the boat to Portovenere. Approaching this beautiful village by boat will give you the chance to admire the amazing coast and natural landscape. The village of Portovenere stretches out over a rocky spur with the church of St. Pietro built in Genovese Gothic style and dominated by an impressive castle on its top. The village also offers a succession of tall, nicely painted houses overlooking the sea, and many medieval corners to explore.

After Portovenere, board the boat to Riomaggiore, where the sea, hills, vineyards, ancient villages, and Genovese-style churches create breathtaking scenery. After Riomaggiore, you'll move on to Manarola by walking through the famous "Via dell'Amore." This walk offers a wonderful view over the coastal sandstones and Punta Mesco promontory. The trail, which will take about 20 minutes to walk, is suitable for everyone--and it is unforgettable!

From Manarola, you'll proceed by train to Monterosso. Spread out at sea level, this village has notable artistic scenic references. See the Medieval "Down Tower" (Torre Aurora), which divides the old part of town from the new; the Van Dyck Crucifix in San Francisco’s church; and the 18th century Sanctuary of Soviore on the hillside.

And don't miss the local Ligurian products! Take some time to taste the wines, liqueurs, oils, and famous Ligurian pesto. Enjoy lunch (additional cost) in a beautiful restaurant overlooking the sea.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
