Question related to ferries from Vernazza to Porto Venere

We are planning to do a day trip from Vernazza to Porto Venere and would like to know how long this boat trip takes and a site where we can find the times etc.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks, John

Last year's times are here www.cinqueterre.eu.com/it/gite-in-barca - they tend to remain very similar from year to year.

Dear Vagabonda and Perilizia, thank you very much for your fast and very helpfull respons. One more question, do you know any hike or walk that will take approx. 3 - 4 hours around Monterosso or Vernazza. Not the 5T route but a different one.

Thanks again.

Prego JLOHolland,

Consider the lovely trek between Levanto and Monterosso. The trek from Portovenere to Riomaggiore would take 5+ hours, but the trek from Monterosso to Levanto would take about 3 hours.

And if you were to venture further afield, the Portofino Promontory also offers many trekking options as does the area around Lerici.

There's a very nice hike from Portovenere around the island of Palmaria which would take about 3 hours plus 4.50 Euro. Great views and few people.
