We did our own thing in La Spezia centre before taking the boat trip to Portovenere and the 3 islands trip - Limoncellos in the shade in Portovenere is to be thoroughly recommended!

Travelled by local ferry and saw all five towns by water. Well worth it.

Blue Boat Cinque Terre and Captain Simone put on the very best day out. He'll collect you from the port and whisk you off on a fabulous day of food, music, wine, Lemoncello and the sights. It is the very best way to see the Cinque Terre and swim in the Med. If you have older children - do this - they will be talking about if for weeks as mine has. Read Less

Went to train station for ride and walk to Pisa. Then took a train to Florence and enjoyed walking around. Came back to port (long Florence train ride - be prepared).

Beautiful colorful buildings when you get into port, though becoming more industrial with a lot of containers around spoiling the view a bit.

We wanted to maximize our time in port so did not go to Florence or Pisa. Highly recommend Portovenere for the day via ferry.

We booked with cruise line. The Tour name is called Florence and Pisa. We love the content of this tour except for the included lunch. They only serve you lasagne but charge your $70~$100 more per person. Choose a tour without lunch would save you some money. Food was very disappointing with the price they charge you. Read Less

Florence and Pisa – small private tour of 4 couples with Florence Connections. We left early and beat the crowds, it included a long drive but was well worth it. Sergio our guide was excellent and our tour included a professional guide for 3 hours in Florence. Once again we were able to access the centre of Florence which the big coaches were not able to thus saving us a 20 minute walk each way. I was a little concerned about the distance we were motoring in case we were late returning to the ship but as Sergio explained all tours follow the same road back to port so any hold up would be experienced by all coaches. We were back on board at exactly our requested time and over an hour before the ships tours that only toured Florence. Both Pisa and Florence were amazing and I can highly recommend them. Read Less

Cinque Terre was a bucket list place for us and it didn't disappoint. We hiked from Monterosso to Vernazza (hard hike - 2 hours up steep hills and down into Vernazza). The hike was hard but spectacular. Lunch in Vernazza right on the water was amazing, followed by a boat ride back to La Spezia with each village more beautiful from the sea than the next. Read Less

We did the bot tour to three quaint seaside stops. Longish ride and some struggled with seasickness. But worth the trouble. These are post card stops to very old places built into steep rock inclines. We had a snack at one and wine at another. We climbed to a vineyard and sat with a woman with which we shared no language. Yet we somehow communicated and enjoyed our glass. Do this one. Read Less
