Stefano's Boat Tour

Stefano is very passionate and knowledgeable about the geology of Cinque Terre. Discussion of former quarries was interesting. His selection of wine for the tour was incredible.

Stefano is a wonderful, passionate gentleman that wants to share his 5 Lands. He explained the geology, farming, building and living in this beautiful region. He was animated and upbeat and we felt very safe with him at the helm. ( my husband is a non swimmer) We went out for the sunset cruise for 2 hours. I recommend this... More

A 3h boat-trip allowed us (2+2 family) to experience all 5 villages from the seaside, with additional spectacular views of cliffs and caves. A few stops to snorkel and jump cliffs made the trip perfect. Stefano serving dolce with local wine rounded of a perfect afternoon. Can highly recommend this way to experience beautiful C5 away from the sometime suffocating... More

This is a basic ferry that takes you between all of the cities. The times are convenient, and they give you plenty of time to enjoy each city before moving onto the next. Tickets may be purchased on the dock in Montorrosso and are pretty reasonable.

Spending the afternoon with Stefano touring Cinque Terre was like spending the afternoon with an Italian Uncle. He shared his knowledge and love for the area and his enthusiasm was infectious! He catered the tour to our wants and needs feeding us wine and focaccia all the while. We were able to get up close to many special inlets and... More

Stefano is an amazing tour guide. He took us to the 5 lands by boat and showed us the best sites along the coast, while giving us a brief history. We had 7 people in our group, and we were running a little late...but he was so flexible and so nice he adjusted our tour with no problem at all!... More

We can't express just how much we loved Stephano and his boat tour! We did an evening boat tour and Stephano told us all about the different villages and the history of the towns while we cruised around sipping on wonderful wines and taking AMAZING pictures. If you like to take pictures - this is by far the BEST way... More

There aren't many options for private boat tours of the Cinque Terre (I think there are only 2 listed on TA), but this was a great find. The website isn't much, which might dissuade some people, but don't be fooled. Stefano and this boat trip were incredible! I highly recommend this tour. Don't worry about the website and just email... More

This has to be the only way to learn and visit the 5 towns of Cinque Terre. We booked direct with Stefano and emails and details confirmed with ease. Stefano is passionate and informative about Cinque Terre, he is a character, his boat is fantastic and we loved every minute that we spent with Stefano. We were a party of... More

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
