For those who are on holiday in Sestri Levante, we would like to inform you that it is possible to make day trips by boat to the Cinque Terre National Park and to San Fruttuoso and Portofino.
This activity was born after the war, invented by a handful of sailors from a romantic and distant era, when all sailors had a tattoo and a beautiful one in every port.
The first tourists arrived on the Italian Riviera, and those rude seamen had the idea of taking them on their little goiters to discover the beauties of the Gulf of Tigullio, and then they knew how to be so enterprising that they wanted to join together to work together, proposing "adventurous" excursions aboard the first boats.
The boarding point in Sestri Levante is located at the end of the promenade near the tourist port, a few steps from the 4 * Hotel Grande Albergo.
For a day visit to the Cinque Terre Park and Portovenere, the shipping company "Servizio Marittimo del Tigullio" offers two wonderful excursions:
