Industry standard Mercedes Vito or similar (see pictures). Vans have 2 seats in the front row next to the driver, 3 in the middle row, and 3 in the back row. The 2 seats on the front might be a little uncomfortable for tall people. If you have additional space requirements you may want to book a van for no more than 6 or 7 people.

  • Private Excursion can be customized to meet the traveler's specific needs and interests according to feasibility constraints (time and distance).

Exclusions

- Entrance tickets to Museums or Archeological sites are not included.
- Official Licensed Guide service. We can provide the service of an official Licensed guide upon request (additional cost).

Professional Driver Role

A driver is not an official guide. Local regulations require that only official licensed guides are allowed to provide information about sites and escort people through monuments, churches and museums. The widespread use of the term “driver-guide” is misleading. See this article describing the problem in the New York Times.

Changes and Cancellations

In order to receive a refund (or adjustment of price in case of changes), we need to receive your changes or cancelation  7 calendar days before the scheduled departure. For changes or cancelation received within 7 calendar days of the tour date you will be charged a 100% cancelation fee (no refund, nor downward price adjustments).

The group leader (person making the booking) shall be deemed to have accepted the following conditions on behalf of the persons traveling with him/her. He/She is also responsible for passing any relevant information received from SmartCruiseTours travel assistants as well as all issued travel vouchers to each group participants.
  • Whenever a participant departs from the group during the tour, establish a meeting point location and time.
  • If a participant gets temporarily lost, they must remain still and contact SmartCruiseTours emergency number (shown below). Making a phone call in Italy is easy as any Italian will provide assistance with that if asked.
  • Balance due at travel time is per group and not per person. All participants must respect their commitment to the group and need to provide their share if they cannot participate at the last minute or must be responsible for finding people to replace their slots (not applicable for tours that are prepaid).
  • If less people than the number indicated at booking time arrive at travel time, the group must provide advance payment to the driver (not applicable for tours that are prepaid).

Tour Description

Proposed Itinerary (may be reversed or rearranged as needed)

NOTE that the itinerary can be customized and coordinated directly with the driver according to your specific needs and/or preferences.

The five hamlets of the Cinque Terre are located on the west coast of the Riviera and they represent a universe apart on the Italian coastal panorama. The villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, were built by peasant farmers who transformed the steep cliffs into fertile terraces to grow excellent agricultural products (oil, wine, lemons). The terraces are based on dry stone walls that if aligned would exceed the length of the Great Wall of China. The delicate balance between natural elements and human toil generated a unique landscape, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Pick up in the morning from the port right at your ship's pier, traveling north to Riomaggiore.
  • From here your visit will continue independently. Please let us know if you wish to have an assistant available all day to be with you.
  • You have the choice to continue the tour by ferry boat or by train (depending on weather and sea conditions). NOTE: Ferry boat service available from the end of March to the beginning of November.
  • In Riomaggiore, you can take the ferry boat to visit Le Cinque Terre (the five villages). This is the suggested and more scenic itinerary, but in the case of bad weather the same can be done by train (easy few minutes rides between each village). The traditional footpath (Via dell'Amore) has been closed due to the landslide.
  • Once in Manarola you can take the boat again and pass in front of Corniglia, a farming village set higher than the others ( the ferry boat can’t stop here), to reach Vernazza with its old center snaking along the cliff top.
  • Lastly Monterosso: the best-equipped village for tourists in the whole Cinque Terre with its typical little port.  All the restaurants provide delectable typical dishes of the Ligurian coast like pesto, focaccia bread, and salted anchovies. You can also taste the product par excellence of Cinque Terre: the famous “Sciacchetrà” a sweet raisin wine……enjoy!!!
  • You will meet your driver back at Riomaggiore before returning to your ship. To come back, you can use the ferry again (if you have chosen a day ticket) or you can return by train for a quicker return. The train is very inexpensive and can get you back in 16 to 20 minutes (departures approximately every 20 min). You will then return back to Livorno (1.5 hours to 2 drive).

Itinerary details are indicative and may need to be changed by the driver in case of heavy traffic or any other unforeseen situation.
