Excursion to Monterosso seeing from the sea all the Cinque Terre, departing from Genoa Porto Antico....
The excursion lasts a whole day. The boat, passed San Fruttuoso and Portofino, reaches this fascinating part of Liguria allowing you to see from the sea the five villages, famous all over the world and included in the Unesco World Heritage. The motorboat stops for about 3 hours in Monterosso, before returning to the departing points.
Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore: these are the names of the villages that seduce visitors with their colorful houses, towers, small museums, maritime churches, terraces, olive trees and vineyards. Tourists find well-traced paths as well as bars, restaurants, ice-cream parlors and hotels.
It is the westernmost of the five villages and is located in the middle of a small natural gulf. The part inhabited by the 1,600 residents is called Fegina, reachable on foot through a tunnel of a few tens of meters. Here you find the railway station and the thin pebble beaches, while the oldest part of the village is gathered below the Castle which stands out for its three round towers and the famous Aurora Tower, overlooking the sea. Also interesting is the statue of the Giant, 14 meters high and weighing 1700 quintals, representing Neptune.
