Experience was great. Very close to the cruise terminal so we were happy not having to need extra transportation. Our tour was replaced with another itinerary due to rough seas, but still wonderful views/experience none the less. Andres was our skipper and was knowledgeable and kind.

Absolutely loved our boat tour of Cinque Terra. Amazing trip and our guide was fabulous. Can't express how wonderful of a tour this was.

Travel through the Gulf of Poets

Begin your shared or private boat tour with a multilingual skipper from a floating lounge in La Spezia's Passeggiata Morin. Cruise through the beautiful Gulf of Poets on the western shore, and admire the inspiring seascapes, pristine beaches, and tranquil environment that have long drawn famous artists to the region. Travel through the picturesque Borgata Marinara, a landscape that is made up of 4 villages and characterized by pastel-colored houses.

Admire the Historical San Pietro Church

Continuing the tour towards Portovenere, pass Le Bocche – a marine strait that separates the secluded Palmaria Island and the town of Portovenere, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Admire the Gothic Genoese architecture of the San Pietro Romanesque Church, perched among the cliffs, overlooking the sea. The church was used by Napoleon's army as a battery for the defense of the gulf due to its strategic location in the Mediterranean sea.

Explore the Village of Monterosso al Mare

On the tour's final stretch, enjoy the pristine coves of Le Rosse, Monesteroli, and Punta Pineda. Then, you may swim in the crystal-clear waters of Cinque Terre National Park. Visit the village of Monterosso al Mare and make sure to enjoy regional specialties like exquisite gelato or focaccia topped with local anchovies.
