A NOTE ABOUT DRIVING TIMES
La Spezia is in close proximity to the Cinque Terre and most of the driving is scenic. See the sample itinerary below to get a sense of driving times.
Our Easy Cinque Terre itinerary is limited to the places that are relatively flat where we can get reasonably close with the vehicle (Portovenere, Vernazza and Corniglia), so it is suitable for those with limited mobility or stamina. It’s also a good choice for a shorter touring day.
