Our dynamic backgrounds and love for this unique area of Italy allow us to best satisfy your every request, helping you to create the ideal tour for your time in the Cinque Terre.

Cinque Terre Land and Sea
Your tour will be hosted an American woman who has lived in the area for more that 10 years and is eager to show you all the ins and outs she has picked up along the way. Departing from La Spezia aboard our private boat guarantees you a safe and comfortable experience while avoiding the lines and crowds of the public ferries.
As we leave La Spezia, we will begin by heading towards the beautiful village of Portovenere, commonly known as the “sixth village of the Cinque Terre” and named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there we will head up the coast towards the Cinque Terre, sailing near the coastline, exploring hidden coves and historical relics that can only be seen by sea aboard a private boat.
From Monterosso to Riomaggiore
We will pass in front of the villages as we make our way to the northernmost village of Monterosso. This tour includes villages stops in Monterosso, Vernazza and Riomaggiore, giving you time to explore and discover what makes these villages so charming. While in Riomaggiore, you will have the option* to meet a local winemaker and tour his breathtaking vineyard. This experience gives you the opportunity to learn about the tradition of the ancient stone walls that characterize the Cinque Terre and allows you to truly appreciate the history of the land. After touring the terrain, we will return to the village for the opportunity to taste a selection of wines carefully chosen by the winemaker himself with the stone walls of his ancient cantina.
After the wine tasting, we will get back on the boat, and cruise back down along the coast for our return to La Spezia.
This is a semi-private tour where you may be paired with other like-minded travelers, however our goal is to make your experience as customizable as possible in that you are free to choose to participate in whichever of the elements you prefer.
* This is an optional element of the tour and it does has an additional fee that is to be paid directly to the winemaker. If you choose not to participate, you will be able to explore the village at your leisure.
