Portofino itself is a lovely resort area but surrounding it is a view of the true Italian lifestyle.
Cinque Terre Escorted Tours
A whole, intense and unforgettable day dedicated to the discovery of one of the most amazing and enchanting landscapes in the World.
Five villages, suspended between sea and land, hanging from sheer cliffs surrounded by hills and vineyards, which will allow us to immerse into a little piece of Heaven. Our visit will start at daybreak, with the arrival to La Spezia, where we will find a motor vessel waiting for us: we will have the possibility to admire this amazing landscape from the outside, like in a postcard.
Our first stop will be Portovenere, an old town at the end of the promontory where the built-up area still has the typical appearance of a Ligurian Village. Here we will have some free time to take a stroll among the narrow houses and the small alleys before leaving again to Monterosso.
As soon as we land at Monterosso we will be overcome by its enchanting beaches and luxuriant vegetation that surrounds the little village.
After a short informative walk, we will have some free time to enjoy a tasty lunch based on seafood in a typical local restaurant and to dive into irresistible crystal-clear waters.
Our journey will resume towards the last stop, Vernazza, a seaside town surrounding a little natural port, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here we will have free time to relax, enjoying a delicious coffee or ice-cream in the main square, while observing activities of fishermen and locals.
We will leave this little piece of heaven on the boat that will accompany us first to Portovenere and then to La Spezia where, back to reality, we will catch the way to go back to Florence.
In addition to comfortable clothes, we recommend to bring with you swimwear and a hat to protect against the sun…!!!
