Your LivTours’ Private Tour from La Spezia to Cinque Terre | Shore Excursion starts at the La Spezia Port Terminal, where your LivTours private guide will be waiting for you. You will reach the local air conditioned train station and make your way into the park as all locals would do.  From here you can enjoy a short hike and breathtaking views of the towns of Volastra and Manarola. You will also start to get an  appreciation of the Cinque Terre’s unique coastline, hosting steep mountainsides lined with vineyards and olive trees. There are many local wineries in the area producing such famous wines as Sciacchetrà and the Cinque Terre DOC.  Be sure to try a Cinque Terre wine later in the day when you stop for lunch!

After this incredible visual introduction, you will make your way down to Vernazza, the first town of Cinque Terre  that was founded in the year 1080. Although all five towns  that make up the Cinque Terre are gorgeous, Vernazza is considered to be one of the most  stunning, with its colorful houses and picturesque little harbor.

From Vernazza you will take a ferry to Monterosso, allowing you to get stunning photographs, enjoy the rugged coastline up close, and admire the beautiful green water and man-made grottos coming out of the cliffs. Once in the the town of Monterosso, you will have some free time to explore and eat lunch. Lunch is not included in this tour, but your LivTours guide will be happy to recommend some great places to eat.  In Monterosso, anchovies are a local specialty, as is the freshly caught seafood, so be sure to indulge in them at lunch perhaps paired with a local Cinque Terre wine. After relaxing and recharging in Monterosso, you will journey back by train. Cinque Terre’s train runs seamlessly in and out of tunnels along the coast, giving you the opportunity to enjoy this unique stretch of coastline in yet another way. Get your cameras ready!

Absolutely beautiful

"We were very anxious to see the Cinque Terre. Had heard so many things from friends and family who had visited. So when we saw LivTour's option to spend a day to experience the Cinque Terre by car, boat, train and even hiking, it sounded just perfect. And it was!! We had an amazing guide with whom we spend the whole day and the lunch in one of the little villages was just divine! We couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks LivTours!!"
