Introduction to Cinque Terra
for Cruise Travelers to the Port of Livorno
 - Portovenere, Riomaggiore and Vernazza.

By: | Date:

Cinque Terra is the lesser explored destination by cruise travelers calling at the port of Livorno and, in fact, only a few cruise ships offer excursions to Cinque Terra. However, the laid-back charm of this string of villages in the Ligurian coast is easy to enjoy on your own traveling by train from Livorno.

The nicest way to explore Cinque Terre is on a boat tour along the coast to admire the dramatic cliffs, picturesque coves, small villages with multicolored houses and rugged seascapes. Naturally, you must also stop at striking villages like Riomaggiore, Monterosso or Vernazza.
