SAILING THE SEA
our excursions by sea
To discover the wonderful hidden corners of the Gulf of Poets and the 5 Terre we recommend some beautiful excursions by sea. Two typical Ligurian boats and a captain will take you to know the islands, caves and villages that overlook our splendid sea
We propose two itineraries:
PORTOVENERE and PALMARIA ISLAND TOUR A beautiful itinerary to admire the magic of Portovenere and its church overlooking the turquoise waters from the sea. A small romantic fishing village that has become famous all over the world as a location for cultural and musical events. The wild nature of the Palmaria island with its now disused precious marble quarries and its crystal clear waters, among small inlets and hidden caves.
TOUR 5 TERRE A unique perspective from the sea will allow you to better appreciate the five characteristic Ligurian villages. The long and narrow pastel-colored fishermen's houses perched on rocky promontories overlooking the sea. The jagged coast studded with Mediterranean scrub. Inlets that hide caves, freshwater waterfalls, sunny beaches.
Both tours include an aperitif with a stop for a swim in the sea
We will be happy to give you all the information you want to spend a pleasant day of relaxation (group or individual tours on request).

BETWEEN ITALIAN CULTURE AND FLAVORS
to discover the true flavors of Liguria
