Program of the Cinque Terre sunset cruise with happy hour:

  • Meeting point 15 minute before the departure time at the boarding dock in Monterosso (where the ferries leave) or at Porto Mirabello in La Spezia and start of the boat tour.
  • The cruise will take you through the “Gulf of Poets” and all along the Cinque Terre National Park. During the tour, enjoy an Italian aperitivo with typical local products, fresh fruit, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Going out of the port, you will admire from the sea Monterosso al Mare: the largest and most visited of the villages; admire its large beach, lined with colourful umbrellas and spiral up through the village.
  • Further along, you will see Corniglia: the smallest village of the Cinque Terre, built far above the ocean on the cliffs.
  • From Corniglia, you will depart for Vernazza, the beauty queen of the Cinque Terre: the most popular and the most photogenic one. Vernazza’s shoreline stands out because of the iconic colourful buildings along the cliffs and the beautiful church tower that looks out onto the bay.
  • The tour continues to Manarola: the village is perched atop jagged ocean cliffs and surrounded by lush-green vineyards. It has an incredible spit of land where the most famous Cinque Terre Instagram photos are taken.
  • The last village of Cinque Terre is Riomaggiore, a picturesque coast-side village with post-card perfect panoramas at every bend.
  • Before the end of the tour, admire Portovenere from the sea, the lesser-known gem in the Gulf of Poets, just a stone’s throw away from the famous Cinque Terre, but still one of the most picturesque town in Italy.
  • Once the tour is over, after about 3 hours, you will return to Monterosso or to La Spezia.
