Discover one of Italy's lesser known gems, the wild Cinque Terre, in the safe hands of a private driver and an enthusiastic, local private guide.
The so-called Cinque Terre (literally translated as Five Lands) are 5 beautiful and picturesque villages perched on the Italian Riviera. These gems nestled in outstanding natural settings overlook the sea in the Liguria region of Italy. The good news is that Cinque Terre is within easy reach of both Livorno and La Spezia. For all those who want to see something a little off the beaten track during their cruise stops in Italy, we have created our private Cinque Terre Shore Trip, leaving from either Livorno or La Spezia port as you require.
The five villages of Cinque Terre are Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Our shore trip to Cinque Terre is a private cruise tour so you can pick and mix which villages you want to see or make little stops in each. You can also visit the striking nearby village of Portovenere. Cinque Terre, along with Portovenere, are UNESCO World Heritage sites. When you visit you will see why!
