TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Portofino Shore Excursion

This full day shore Portofino shore trip visits the stunningly beautiful Cinque Terre. You will travel by vehicle, train and or boat between some of the most charming villages in the world. The Cinque Terre is a bucket list destination for people around the globe.

The Cinque Terre, or Five Lands, is one of Italy's most idyllic seaside cluster of villages. The Cinque Terre is now a National Park that encompasses about 10 miles of the rocky coastline. Within the park are five villages tucked away in small inlets or perched on rocky promontories.

Time has stood still for these five villages; Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Until the last hundred years they were not even accessible by car or train, but only by boat or foot paths. As a result the residents adapted to their natural surroundings. Buildings start at the sea and climb the cliffs towards the sky, and terraced hills have been cultivated with vineyards and olive groves.

You'll be met at the pier in Portofino by your private tour guide and depart immediately for Santa Margherita Ligure where you will take a local train to Manarola.

Upon arrival in Manarola, you'll enjoy a walk of the enchanting village with its tiny fisherman's wharf. Next you board a boat (weather permitting) or the train and depart for Vernazza.

In Vernazza you have free time to explore the local shops and enjoy lunch (meal not included) as you marvel at this picturesque village huddled around its small harbor.

Later this afternoon you take another boat (or train) to Monterosso al Mare. After a short walk you have free time again to explore. Consider sampling the local lemon liqueur or visiting one of the wine tasting rooms.

After you visit Monterosso you take the train back to Santa Margherita, and there you meet your driver who will take you into Portofino.

Mobility: NO wheelchairs
