By boat in the Cinque Terre

Since the Cinque Terre villages are small ports, moving around by boat is an everyday practice (all ports of the Cinque Terre are indicated on the map). Corniglia, with no outlet to the sea, is the only village you have to walk to or go by train. Even if the boat trip requires more time than the train, tourists use this means of transport, which is so typical along the coast of the Cinque Terre, to admire the beautiful landscapes of these Ligurian villages from the sea. It is worth traveling by boat from one village to another at least once.

If you stay in the Cinque Terre for more than 2 days, we advise you to devote one day to a boat trip to Porto Venere and from here take an excursion around the three islands. To do this you need to buy an “unlimited” ticket, which includes all movements by sea. More information about Porto Venere on the site of that village.
