If you only have a limited amount of time in Cinque Terre and want to get an overview of the area, many travelers recommend seeing the five towns by boat. Plus, the experience of cruising the water is often accompanied by delicious snacks, drinks or even multicourse Italian meals. And weather-permitting, many boat operators stop in little-known coves along the tour for swim breaks.
Boats leave from all of the Cinque Terre villages, except Corniglia, but they range in price and duration. For instance, the half-day "Cinque Terre Lunch Tour" from Angelo's Boat Tours cost 135 euros (about $160) per adult and includes lunch and beverages, while the 2 ½-hour "Sunset Tour" from Enjoy Cinque Terre Boat Tours costs 60 euros (about $71) per person.
