Private Easy Cinque Terre day trip from the port of Livorno

Want to visit the Cinque Terre but have limited mobility or stamina? With our private Easy Cinque Terre excursion you can!

Our courteous and knowledgeable driver will pick you up right at the ship. We will visit Portovenere, Vernazza and Corniglia — three of the most beautiful and indicative places in the Cinque Terre area. We’ve selected them because they’re quite flat, so they’re manageable even for those who use mobility aids.

You will travel in air-conditioned comfort in a sedan or minivan, which enables us to bring you into the village or reasonably close, where buses aren’t permitted.

Taking the ferry to travel from Portovenere to Vernazza is an option (extra cost). You must be steady on your feet to board; the gangway is narrow and sometimes unstable.

Note: In Italy drivers can share information while you are in the vehicle but are NOT permitted to go with you once leave the vehicle. Local licensed guides who can accompany you on foot are available for additional cost.

* Duration: 8 to 9 hours
* Starts: Livorno, Italy

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Portovenere, 19025, Porto Venere Italy

The history of Portovenere is long and interesting, dating back to the 1st Century BC, but most folks simply enjoy it for its charm. The main attractions are the imposing 13th Century church of St. Peter with its striking black and white stripes, and the colorful row houses along the marina that make one think of Portofino.

Literature lovers will remember that Lord Byron swam across the gulf of La Spezia from the grotto now named after him to visit Percy Bysshe Shelley in 1822.

Portovenere has evolved from fishing community during Roman times to base of the Byzantine fleet after the fall of the Western Roman Empire to gateway to Cinque Terre today: a living picture postcard of lush green terrain set against the brilliant blue sea.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Vernazza, Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera, Liguria

Vernazza is perhaps the most popular of the Cinque Terre villages. The marina area is very lively, with lots of terraces where you can enjoy a refreshment or snack. You will likely be in Vernazza at lunch time (depends on pickup time), and there are many good restaurants featuring seafood and the excellent local white wine.

The main street in Vernazza is a great place to shop or pause for some gelato (ice cream). For architectural points of interest there’s Castello Doria, Vernazza’s medieval fortification. Climb the Belvedere Tower for amazing views (small entry fee). Th church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia is also worth a visit: simple but very lovely.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Corniglia, Corniglia, Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera, Liguria

Of all the Cinque Terre villages, Corniglia has best maintained its Medieval aspect. It’s the only village that sits high on the cliffs, not reachable by ferry.

The narrow streets are pleasant to stroll, and some good gelato (ice cream) can be found in Corniglia. There are some lovely churches, but the best spot in the village in the public terrace with panoramic views up and down the coast.

Duration: 30 minutes
