The Cinque Terre

This very scenic section of the Italian Riviera is characterized by small sandy beaches among the rocks, high cliffs, caves and tiny bays. What makes it so unique are the five appealing villages with their pastel houses stacked up the cliff face like an array of colorfully wrapped presents. They are connected to each other only by hiking trails, trains and an occasional boat. You’ll have the opportunity to explore three of these delightful hamlets on this tour.


Manarola is the quintessential Italian seaside town, and here you’ll be free to wander on your own, perhaps stopping by the 14th century church or the pleasant beach. Then board a motorboat for a scenic cruise weather permitting, that will take you to the charming fishing village of Vernazza, crowned by a castle. The colorful buildings of this little gem cluster around a small cove.


Monterosso is said to be one of the most picturesque towns in Italy, and is considered a Cinque Terre “don’t miss.” After an introduction by your guide, you’ll have free time to explore the tiny shops and have lunch on your own. Take a look at the cathedral, lined inside with black and white stripped pillars, relax on the broad sandy beach, or stroll along the seaside boardwalk.


Note: There is approximately 1 mile of walking through cobblestones, gravel, uneven and inclined terrains as well as numerous steps. Not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. Motorboat transport depends on the weather and sea conditions between villages. Transport can be on choppy seas; the train will be used when weather conditions prohibit boat transfers. Your guide will meet you in La Spezia and accompany you through the villages; however, you’ll have an escort with you throughout the day. Tour is not offered on Norwegian Jade's December through April sailings.
