We've been sailing the Ligurian Sea from almost 20 years, and still marvel every time passing near or stop in one of the 5Terre villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso.
5 pearls that are a "must see" destination.
And there's much more to see and to do! From La Spezia, town of sailors and pirates, heading out of the Gulf of Poets, we can visit the cozy Fezzano, Le Grazie and finally Portovenere, the Portofino from La Spezia.
The navigation is easy, close to the coast and relatively short. The skipper can do the work alone, allowing you to relax all the time. But instead if you want to join the manouvering, then the captain will give you a job and teach some basics of sailing technique.
From La Spezia we get to Portovenere in 40 min. and 5Terre in some more than 2 hours. While sailing and when at the anchor, every moment will be perfect to taste typical local dishes prepared onboard with fresh fish and seafood.
