Going on a Mediterranean cruise has become extremely popular for the past few years. If you are planning one and you will board in Genova or La Spezia, you should consider spending a few days in the Cinque Terre before or after your cruise. In case you board somewhere else and your ship will stop in La Spezia or Portovenere, you probably want to spend a day in the Cinque Terre. The cruise companies offer day tours to the area. Those groups are usually quite large, around 50 people, and in my opinion it is not possible to enjoy the Cinque Terre in such a big group.
If you would like to have a more relaxed experience and a day tour planned especially for you, just send me an email. I can organise a personal guide for you in several languages and also private transfer if needed. I will help you create the best itinerary. We will take you to some off the beaten track places in the Cinque Terre, away from the crowds. Your local guide will explain why the Cinque Terre is such a unique place on earth. We can include a nice wine tasting with light lunch for you, as the wines of the Cinque Terre are really important in local life and history.
