“helpful and great crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We were given a pamphlet on this company by our bnb in Levanto. So glad as we had a great time.
We trained it to La Spezia then bused it to PORTAOVENERE (great scenery of coast on the route).
Had lunch there, lovely place.. and hoped on the boat for our hop on hop off trip back to Levanto.
The company- from the guy at the ticket both to the crew on the boat were very friendly, helpful and we felt in safe hands.We hoped off the boat for swims then just hoped back on the next boat to next scheduled stop. Its great seeing the 5 Terre from a sea veiw and you can get great photoes too from the boat.

“Great no-frills transport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We took the train in to Monterosso from Florence, and really wanted to see La Cinque Terre from the water, as the train spends most of its time in tunnels away from scenic views. After doing some research, we found this ferry. The schedule was a bit confusing, and I found no information as to where to pay for the ferry or where it docked, so we just walked along the coast of Monterosso and hoped to find what we needed. Ultimately, we found a table set outside where they were selling tickets, and we made our way to all four of the other towns. The price was reasonable, the scenery beautiful, and all of the ferries ran according to the schedule (once we figured it out). Although the company could offer a bit more information, we found this to be an ideal way to see every town in an afternoon.

“Pleasant way to visit the towns of Cinque Terre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We enjoyed getting a day pass, I wish it would have run later in the day, we could not get to Riomaggiore and The town further south of it. We stated at Manorola and went north and came back to Manorola. Great views of all the villages. Pleasant ride in the sunshine .not overly expensive.

“In a word-- chaotic.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The Consorzio Marritimo Turistico 5 Terre Golfo dei Poeti is the tourist boat operation which moves people along the Cinque Terra. For 28 Euro per person you can catch a boat between the villages of the Cinque Terra. Sounds easy. In practice they have many boats arriving and departing from each village and no system to identify which boat is which and going where. If you risk asking a staff member you will receive a surly reply in rapid Italian, a shrug of the shoulders and their back as they walk away.This happened 4 times in one afternoon, simply asking if "this was the correct boat for "La Spezia". They even announced a 20 minute stop at one village only to depart after 10, leaving angry tourists on the wharf. ( fortunately we weren't among them).
This sort of operation could be so much better organised. The people on Lake Como do it really well. If you chose to travel the Cinque Terra by boat, and it is a great way, pay close attention to the printed schedule, find someone who knows and ask the boat name for your correct trip, or you will soon find yourself going the wrong way.

“Boat (Ferry) Ride Le Cinque Terre, Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is one of the ways to visit all 5 towns during one day, other than by a local train. This is fast but can be "choppy" depending on the water conditions. It is convenient and reasonably inexpensive. Highly recommend it!
