Excursion to Cinque Terre by ferry or train

Meeting with the guide in La Spezia, where by ferry we reach Portovenere, a medieval village built on one of the promontories of the Gulf of Poets.

During the stop of an hour, we can visit this fortified hamlet, nestled between the cliffs of Muzzerone mount and Palmaria Island and we will reach Saint Peter Church (one of the most charming places in the world, built over the sea).

Our itinerary continues, always by ferry, towards Cinque Terre, which we can admire from the sea. We reach Monterosso, where we have lunch. In the old town, among narrow streets and picturesque shops, we will visit Saint John Church (elegant example of Ligurian Gothic) and the seventeenth-century oratory of the Blacks Brotherhood.

After lunch and Monterosso visit, we move by train towards Riomaggiore, stop and guided tour to the picturesque marina. Then we come back to La Spezia by train. Then we come back to La Spezia by train.
