Look at the little fishermen’s boats docked by the beach, and an old castle on the horizon. Enjoy some free time to explore the village on your own.

Continue by boat to see the Cinque Terre National Park from the sea. Marvel at how man overcame the challenge of nature, creating one-of-a-kind residences with unparalleled views. Stop at Monterosso, the largest town of the Cinque Terre. Enjoy some free time for lunch, and to swim in the sea, or join an optional light hike of the Cinque Terre mainland to enjoy it from a different perspective. Walk past terraced vineyards, and ancient olive groves.

Then, climb aboard the train to Vernazza, characterized by its narrow streets and small square overlooking the sea.
