Luxury Limousine service: Full day 8 hrs. departure from Genoa and return to Genoa. You will be picked up at the cruise ship pier by our private English speaking driver with a luxury vehicle for the day trip (Limousine service). This tour will take you to the most interesting amenities in “Five Lands” (that is the name of landscape between the two extreme promontories “Punta Mesco” and “Punta of Montenero”). The 5 villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore make up the renowned Cinque Terre. Over the years people have succeeded in imposing their will on this difficult landscape through terrace cultivation consisting of narrow strips of land on the hillside or sheer cliffs called “fasce”. Local people had to build countless short dry walls “muretti” and steps to support the steep strips of land. From a research carried out by naturalists, the inhabitants of the Cinque Terre seem to have carried out an enormous task, over thousands of years, by constructing and repairing these famous short dry walls “muretti”. The two-metre-high, eleven thousand kilometer long network of dry walls is comparable to the Great Wall of China. There is a daily boat service which allows you to move from Lerici to Portovenere (but also from Monterosso, Vernazza and Rio Maggiore) and admire the whole Cinque Terre coastline and other places nearby.
