Late October, floating on the Mediterranean with Stefano and his passion for the five towns. The only way to see the beautiful coastline and the towns. Well worth the cost and we even took time out for a short swim. Stefano is a character and obviously in love with his part of the world. Lucked out with great weather. A... More

We were a party of 6 and decided to commence our visit to Cinque Terre with a boat tour to get an appreciation of this remarkable area from the sea first....and we're so glad we did. Stephano picked us up from the wharf at Monterroso...and over the next 2 hours gave us a full over view of the area from... More

My wife and were fortunate to get of Stefano and have him take us a boat trip down the of the Cinque Terre. Stefano is very obliging and is prepared to stop when ever you want him to. This is not a expensive attraction and its well worth taking a look at the coast from the sea. We stopped at... More

We decided to reboot a little3 hour tour with Matilda Navigazione and so glad we did. It was one of our holiday highlights. Stephano met us on time and cruised up and down the Conquer Terre. Stepheno explained the geology and history of the region and gave us a completely different appreciation of his home. His passion and pride were... More

We had a private 3 hour boat tour with Stefano. This is his passion and you can feel it. He took us to see the villages by sea and we got out several times to snorkel. Not to much to see in the water but the caves and the waterfall were beautiful. On the way back he gave us local... More

We have visited the Cinque Terre area multiple times (we love it), done the usual walks between towns, above towns, used the trains and ferries. What we had not done was a private boat trip, So this time we promised ourselves we would. After some TA research we decided Matilde Navigazione fitted our requirements perfectly. We met Nico (he is... More

My husband & I were so pleased we chose Stefano as our guide for Cinque Terre. His knowledge is amazing & he has a passion for the area which shows in his tour. His boat is comfortable & clean. Glass of local wine was a nice touch. Definately would recommend Stefano for a trip along the coastline. Great guy x

We enjoyed our 5.5 hour water tour of Cinque Terre, Portovenere & La Spezia today very much. For a family from Seattle, WA - it was such a nice change of pace!

Stefano’s boat tour of the five lands of Cinque Terre is absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I came to celebrate our anniversary in Italy, and our boat ride with Stefano was the highlight of our 2.5 week trip throughout the country. He made the occasion very special with surprises, excellent local wine, and delicious focaccia. The Matilde boat is beautiful... More
