Explore the breathtaking Ligurian coast on a tour from Lucca to Porto Venere and Cinque Terre, a small corner of paradise divided into five villages which are located on steep cliffs overlooking the sea. Discover a unique landscape, where vegetation and lush vineyards frame a spectacular scenery. Visit three of the five villages.
Spend an unforgettable day in one of the most impressive Ligurian landscapes: the area consists of kilometers of rocky coast with caves, beaches, hiking paths and breathtaking views and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
You’ll first reach Manarola, a tiny urban jewel characterized by Genoese style "case-torri". Then you will move to Vernazza, a village overlooked by the remains of a Medieval castle with a cylindrical tower, and enjoy some free time there. Afterward, you will reach Monterosso, known as the "pearl of Cinque Terre". This ancient fishing village, the biggest of the National Park, with its lovely beaches and lush vegetation covering the rocks will certainly enchant you.
Book the lunch option to have a typical Ligurian lunch in a seaside restaurant. The menu consists of a seafood starter, handmade pasta “trofie” with Pesto sauce, baked fish with potatoes, tiramisù (wine and water) followed by the typical “Limoncino” made with fresh lemons from Monterosso. After lunch, take a swim and enjoy the perfect sandy beach and crystalline water.
Board the ferry boat to Portovenere and enjoy unforgettable views of the villages from the sea, the perfect viewpoint for taking unique photos! Take advantage of your free time in Portovenere and get to know this elegant and popular destination where nature and human architecture are perfectly balanced. Take the boat again and reach the city of La Spezia where the bus will be waiting for you to take you back to Lucca.
