Well its a good idea to visit 5Terre with a boat, but the boat excursions need to improve in some aspects. First, although it wasn't high season, there were great ques in every station, which made us come at least 20 minutes early and wait...More

The boat trip to the Cinque Terre is a must. The times the boat leaves is very clear, but you don't know the price until you go to buy the tickets. The times of the boat, especially for the return trip, were limited. To get...More
