Absolutely stunning! We fell in love with the Cinque Terre. I had researched local tour companies before we left and found many expensive private tours. We opted for essentially a hop on hop off boat trip to the 5 villages. The Company was Consorzio Marittimo Turistico 5 Terre. Purchased tickets in the port terminal and it was a short walk to the boat. The boat works to a timetable and you could get off at any of the villages you wished. We went to the furthest village and worked our way back, stopping to explore the little streets, have lunch, soak up the beauty. We have 2 boys so did not want to walk between the villages, we enjoyed viewing each village from the sea - just beautiful!

We took the tour to see the leaning tower in Pisa. We spent a couple hours touring the church, gardens and crypts as well as the tower.

In La Spezia, we walked to the train station (approximately 20 minutes from the cruise terminal) and took a short train ride to one of the Cinque Terre. We then got on a boat that took us around each of the Cinque Terre, which was beautiful. Afterwards, we took the train back to the centre of La Spezia and got back on the ship. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Excursion to Pisa leaning tower

Stayed in town instead of long bus rides to Florence or Pisa. What an awesome little town with great seaside views, shopping and dining.

Pisa trip was great, Florence was very busy as Easter and all the locals were out, too busy to see most of the sights, would be great another time. Lovely to sit in the square at a bar with a bottle of local wine and watch the world go by. Very knowledgeable guide.

Loved this town but unfortunately it was a Sunday and the buses were unable to take us directly down. Our tour guide said we would have to wait for the town trolleys or we could follow her down. We chose to follow her and unfortunately a friend travelling with broke her foot on the uneven streets. We spent a couple of hours trying to get her help and get her back to the ship. Once we got her situated we only had about 15 minutes to see the port. It took forever to get transportation back to the meeting area. A wasted day that could have been much better. I would like to visit here again someday.

Loved La Spezia and Cinque Terre. We did the excursion and felt the guide was not organized with her presentation. Just a jumble of talk at us.
