These villages are difficult to reach, which is part of their charm, but can also make for an exhausting day with a lot of walking. We want to help you make the most of your time here and have customized the day to make this relaxing for all.
Our journey begins with a panoramic drive to Portovenere, which is not technically one of the five villages of Cinque Terre, though beautiful in it's own right and has been around since the first century. There is certainly a history to be discovered in these cobbled streets, but what will really wow you are the brightly colored houses lining the Mediterranean coast line.
Next we will visit Vernazza, the only village of the Cinque Terre that is a natural harbor, and the most authentic fishing village in the area. Situated on a rocky cliff, the houses here cling to the coastline and make for what many believe to be the most picturesque scenery along the western coastline of the Mediterranean.
Our last stop of the day is Corniglia, the only village not accessible by sea. With origins as an ancient Roman agricultural society this town has a very well preserved Medieval aspect versus the more common fishing villages found along the rest of the Mediterranean coastline. Take in the scenery, the village is surrounded by vineyards and lush greenery.
Enjoy a scenic return drive to port.
