2 Day – Cinque Terre villages tour
After breakfast, you’ll meet your local private tour guide and start an authentic private tour of Cinque Terre villages by a panoramic trip on boat* (not public).
Through your local tour guide’s eyes you’ll understand why these villages, which are not an “all inclusive paradise” tourist resort, have been celebrated by writers and poets and quoted by “a paradise on earth!”. Here Mediterranean trees and plants grow up spontaneously representing one of the best preserved natural areas of the Mediterranean, a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997.
You’ll visit Riomaggiore with its church and stunning castle, you’ll walk among the famous terraced vineyards of Manarola, the perched village of Corniglia and in the picturesque Vernazza till Monterosso.
*in case of bad weather/sea conditions boat can be cancelled and the tour runs by train.
3 Day – Private boat Portovenere
After breakfast, you’ll reach Portovenere and meet your captain for a private boat tour of the famous islands of the “Gulf of Poets”, so called to remember how the beauty of these places has been celebrated by poets, writers and artists, who have long been attracted by this coast and the savage sweetness of its landscape and climate. You’ll admire the impressive cliffs, grottos and fortresses of this beautiful stretch of coast loved by poets and writers such as Byron and Shelley.
