Cinque Terre Italy boat

A boat trip in the Cinque Terre is one of the best ways to discover this beautiful coastline with its rugged cliffs, turquoise water and colorful fishing villages.

The ferries are running between the Cinque Terre villages from the end of March until November 1, 2024.

Enjoy the views of the Cinque Terre by taking the boat along this stunning coastline with its beautiful scenery.

The ferries are running frequently from the ports of Levanto, La Spezia and Portovenere to the villages of the Cinque Terre and stop in Monterosso, Vernazza, Manarola and Riomaggiore. The ferry does not stop in Corniglia since this is the only village without water access.

We recommend you to buy a one-day roundtrip ticket valid for Levanto - Cinque Terre - Portovenere and La Spezia which costs 39 euros for adults and 15 euros for children. This ticket allows you to take unlimited ferries and hop on and off where you like. There are afternoon roundtrip tickets, valid from 2pm, which cost 28 euros for adults and 15 euros for children. There are also one-way tickets, with or without intermediate stops, see prices here below.

There are also connections to Lerici, Deiva Marina, Moneglia, Versilia and to the island of Palmaria.
