Private Cinque Terre hiking tour with boat ride


This is a spectacular experience of the famous Cinque Terre on foot and, if you wish, by boat. Starting from Monterosso, we head south on a combination of low (classical) and high (optional) trails with breathtaking views. Hike as long as you feel like: from one hour to full day, enjoy the breathtaking views, pass through panoramic vineyards, relax on the boat, and savor local delicacies for lunch. We explore the five villages, have lunch in a local fish restaurant (or picnic if you prefer), learn local secrets about growing olives and vines, and of course experience the sea-land connection unique to this area. Nature, culture, gourmet wine and cuisine - all pleasures in one!
Non-slippery hiking shoes are a must. Hiking sticks could be useful (the guide carries two sticks that you can borrow). Trails often involve stone steps, can be very steep and narrow - please see pictures. Not suitable if you suffer from vertigo.

Itinerary

Meet at your hotel or La Spezia train station.
Transfer to Monterosso by train.
Hike Monterosso - Vernazza - Corniglia - Manarola - Riomaggiore (please note that some trails might be closed due to landslides so we might have to do one or two stretches by boat or train)

An amazing day. The trails were beautiful and Anna was kind and funny. She kept us going, even during the longest uphill climbs. Highly recommended.
