A boat trip in the Cinque Terre is one of the best way to discover this beautiful coastline with its rugged cliffs, turquoise water and colorful fishing villages.
Enjoy the beautiful views of the Cinque Terre by taking the ferry that runs between the villages from the end of March until approx. the 1st of November every year.
The boat service is suspended until spring 2022. Ferry schedules for 2022 will be available in February. As soon as the new timetable is available we will update this page.
The boats are running frequently from the ports of 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. There are also connections to Levanto, Portofino and to the island of Palmaria.
The ferry tickets cannot be purchased online in advance. You can buy the boat tickets 30 minutes before departure at the ticket counters located near the docking points.
We recommend you to buy a one day ticket or a half day ticket, which allows you to take unlimited boats and hop on and off where you like.

Dogs on the Cinque Terre boats
Small and medium-sized dogs are allowed on board on the Cinque Terre boats and travel free of charge without the need for any ticket. They must have a leash and muzzle. Small dogs must be kept in bags or carriers. For more information, I recommend you to ask at the docking points or at the Park information centers.
