Cinque Terre Sunset Cruise & Swim
We'll meet you in the harbor in Riomaggiore and depart on our magical sunset tour. We'll slowly make our way up the Cinque Terre coast, stopping in front of each village to give you a little bit of history and insider information, as well as the opportunity to take photos of the villages from the sea - hands down the best way to capture each village's beauty. Once we reach Monterosso we'll turn around, and with the sun setting behind us, we'll slowly head back to Riomaggiore. You'll sip bubbles while cruising. Yuri is a local wine expert and has his own vineyards, so he's able to provide you with information about how grapes are grown on our cliffs, and what makes the Cinque Terre wine which you'll be drinking so unique. You'll also be munching on homemade focaccia from the local baker, made fresh daily, and a must-try food while in the Cinque Terre. You can jump in the sea during the tour as well for a sunset dip. Take a deep breath - this is paradise. Once we return to Riomaggiore, if you are interested, Yuri can book you a table in the harbor at a fantastic restaurant, and you can finish your evening eating local seafood in the harbor​​. Let us make your night, and maybe even your holiday here in the Cinque Terre, a lifelong memory, and show you 'La dolce vita. The tour lasts around 2.5 hours depending on whether guests swim or not.
Climb the Stairway to Wine Heaven
We will meet up in Manarola, and after a quick visit of the village, which will be nice and quiet early in the morning, we will start our adventure by taking a deep breath and hiking up to Volastra, a wonderful hamlet as far off the beaten path as you can get in this area. The hike is straight uphill and it will make you sweat, we promise! There will be plenty of visual rewards along the path, though, because you will get the most spectacular views of Manarola and the sea, almost like you were a drone (only without flying off the rocks!). Then, after approximately 1 hour, we will reach our destination. And there, only there, will you feel like you have earned your well deserved wine tasting. We will drink the wine of one of the greatest local winemakers right on his vineyard while looking at the Mediterranean directly below, almost touching the sky and rejoicing in the power of nature. After the wine tasting, our experience is finished. From Volastra, you can choose to continue on the trail to Corniglia, the next Cinque Terre town, go back down the trail to Manarola, or take the eco-bus down to Manarola at a cost of 2.50 per person. Rain can be serious in the Cinque Terre, so if it is raining too heavily, or if the National Park issues a weather alert, we won't be able to do the hike. In that case, we will take the bus up to Volastra at an additional cost of 2.50 per person.
