Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso each year attract thousands of tourists in Italy thanks to its unforgettable landscapes and the romantic walks overlooking the sea.
Sailing towards these destinations through a blue cobalt sea and caressed by the Mediterranean wind would be a very pleasant experience for a sailing holiday in Italy on board of our comfortabke charter catamaran.
DAY 1 - Boarding in La Spezia, welcome aperitif and dinner on board of our charter catamaran. Overnight in La Spezia and in the morning departure and sail to Riomaggiore.
DAY 2 - RIO MAGGIORE Cinque Terre's easternmost village in Italy, is the largest of the five and where the main park office is based. Its peeling pastel buildings march down a steep ravine to a tiny harbour – the region's favourite postcard view – and glow romantically at sunset. The hills between here and La Spezia create a spectacular landscape. Enjoy the comfort and the relax on board of our charter catamaran admiring the wonderful lanscape.
DAY 3 - MANAROLA Bequeathed with more grape vines than any other Cinque Terre village in Italy, Manarola is famous for its sweet Sciacchetrà wine. It's also awash with priceless medieval relics, supporting claims that it is the oldest of the five. The spirited locals here speak an esoteric local dialect known as Manarolese. Due to its proximity to Riomaggiore (852m away), the village is heavily trafficked, especially by Italian school parties along with the regular tourists.
DAY 4 - VERNAZZA Vernazza's small harbour – the only secure landing point on the Cinque Terre coast in Italy – guards what is perhaps the quaintest, and steepest, of the five villages. Lined with little cafes, a main cobbled street (Via Roma) links seaside Piazza Marconi with the train station. Side streets lead to the village's trademark Genoa-style caruggi (narrow lanes), where sea views pop at every turn.
DAY 5 - CORNIGLIA Corniglia is the 'quiet' middle village that sits atop a 100m-high rocky promontory surrounded by vineyards. It is the only Cinque Terre settlement with no direct sea access, although steep steps lead down to a rocky cove. Narrow alleys and colourfully painted four-storey houses characterise the ancient core, a timeless streetscape that was namechecked in Boccaccio's Decameron. What more exciting than be caressed by Italian wind on board on our comfortable charter catamaran ?
DAY 6 - MONTEROSSO The most accessible village by car and the only Cinque Terre settlement to sport a proper stretch of beach, the westernmost Monterosso in Italy is the least quintessential of the quintet. The village, known for its lemon trees and anchovies, is delightful. Split in two, its new and old halves are linked by an underground tunnel burrowed beneath the blustery San Cristoforo promontory.
DAY 7 -Sailing back to La Spezia where we will arrive in the late afternoon and landing in the touristic port at about 6 pm.
- Beautiful cruise with short navigation and a lot of locations to visit and discover on the land.
