Itinerary

This is a sample itinerary, feel free to require further customization of your cruise ship excursion that better fits to your wishes or needs.

Meet the driver-guide at the cruise terminal/facility and ride as far as Corniglia by driving along the panoramic road first up the hills overlooking the Gulf of La Spezia, and after bordering the vineyards and the terraces up high in the 5 Terre.

Upon arrival enjoy the unique atmosphere of Corniglia, the smallest of the Cinque Terre, stroll along the main street until you reach a terrace built on the cliffs from where the view is simply awesome!

Afterward, move to Vernazza, another gem of the Cinque Terre by someone considered the most charming among the five villages. Hit the main street and in 10 minutes you reach the lovely marina with the square surrounded by colorful houses.
