Begin your Italian Riviera private day tour with pickup from La Spezia port. Travel on the way to Portofino (approx. 80 minute drive traffic pending). During the scenic journey your friendly and informative driver/guide provides a comprehensive introduction to these upmarket resorts bringing your destinations to life. Once an ancient Roman colony Portofino offers lush Mediterranean hillside forests loaded with history and astonishing beauty. Walk through quaint, narrow streets past charming fishermen’s houses and soak the local atmosphere. This picturesque tiny fishing village with pastel houses lining the shore of the harbor has been a destination of the rich and famous for more than half a century. Liz Taylor, Richard Burton and Humphrey Bogart chose Portofino as a perfect hideaway. Italian Riviera private day tour proceeds to the rugged villages of Cinque Terre. Excursion starts from Riomaggiore. Once parked at the top of the village we start winding down walking between its colorful houses. The walk down will end at the ancient marina that is still intact as it was centuries ago. Next we head onto the charming village of Manarola. The visit toward Vernazza will continue either by your private vehicle or ferry. If you wish, follow the Italian Riviera, hiking between hillside fishing villages and paddling beneath the cliffs that line the Mediterranean Sea. If no you will travel by ferry, which is a very scenic experience. At the end of your Italian Riviera private day tour your personal driver/guide transfers you back to La Spezia port in time to board your cruise ship.
