    2. Cinque Terre Sunset Boat Tour

    Departing from Monterosso, enjoy a welcome drink as you sail across the Cinque Terre, all the way to Riomaggiore and Punta Montenero on the south-east side of the National Park. Take a swimming break in a secluded bay, diving into the clear waters of the Ligurian sea. Once you're all back on the boat, navigate towards Punta Mesco, across the most north-western point of Cinque Terre National Park. Admire the fascinating landscape of lights and colors, and if you are lucky, spot some dolphins breaching the sea surface. In a unique atmosphere that only this picturesque bay at sunset can offer, enjoy a savory, rich Italian "aperitivo" made with fresh, regional ingredients.

    Amazing trip! The sunset was gorgeous and our captain was great! My daughter and I had a fantastic time!

perfect organization.

Nice approach to the village, good for taking photos. Swimming in crystal clear waters, drinks, toast, fish barbecue. Comments on the history of the region, archaeological discoveries of the navigator, pieces of amphorae, plates, weapons. Return to the port with a magnificent sunset and a digestif. Maximum 15 passengers on the boat, friendly and professional navigators. I highly recommend.

Very nice experience, very pleasant cruise with a very nice guide who explains the places visited with a lot of passion. What to do to discover the Cinque Terre from the sea, it's magical! Very good dinner on board.

In small groups on a very comfortable boat! An animator who goes to great lengths to tell a lot of anecdotes

Amazing trip! The sunset was gorgeous and our captain was great! My daughter and I had a fantastic time!

Enthusiastic local guide and a very beautiful boat trip, nice views and swimming spots
