PLEASE NOTE: As a Private tour of the Cinque Terre, we can customize this itinerary to suit your requirements. A popular alternative to the above itinerary would be to continue to walk along the famous coastal footpath from Manorola to Vernazza, instead of catching the boat. This would involve a more strenuous two-hour walk, and would mean that there would be no time to visit Corniglia.
