Small Group Tour: The Azure Day - Sailing Along the Cinque Terre Coast with Mini Course
See the Cinque Terre coast and the Gulf of Poets from a different perspective. See Portovenere, Lerici, Palmaria Island and Tino Island as you sail across the Gulf of Poets and then along the Cinque Terre coast. Enjoy a light lunch of local specialites such as focaccia and anchovies on board along with water and wine. There will also be a stop for a swim in a marine protected area. For those interested, there will also be the possibility of learning the basics of how to sail from the English-speaking skipper.
This tour is provided on a reserved basis prior to departure. Passengers must contact the local sightseeing company upon arrival to reconfirm their tour.

Transportation to/from hotel, gratuities
We recommend you bring sunglasses, hat, sun protection, camera, swimwear, bath towel and, depending upon weather conditions, rain protection and/or an extra jacket.
If you tend to get seasick, we recommend you buy appropriate pills in a pharmacy.
In case rough seas cause the Cinque Terre to be unreachable, the tour will cruise the Gulf of La Spezia instead. There will be no reduction in price or refunds made as a result.
Directions: exiting La Spezia Centrale train station, turn left, cross the roundabout and walk through the pedestrian place called Piazza Saint Bon. Enter the pedestrian road Via Prione and follow it until the end where you’ll meet the public gardens. Walk through it and you will get to the sea. Looking at the sea, you will have a white bridge on your right and the ferries’ dock on your left. Go left. Walk past the Cinque Terre ferries dock, and you will see a wooden structure with “Assonautica” written on it: enter and wait in the sitting area for Arcangelo, your skipper. It takes about 20 minutes walking from the train station to the pier.
