The Cinque Terre Ferry is a great opportunity to fully enjoy the beauty of this unique coastline and the Gulf of Poets. The ferry daily ticket can be purchased directly at the front desk for you to avoid queuing at the pier and enjoy our breakfast till the last second.
The boats stop in all villages except Corniglia because it’s the only one without docking. Therefore, if you have several days, we suggest you dedicate this tour to visit the islands and Porto Venere, perhaps with a side trip to Lerici, leaving the Cinque Terre for another day.
Otherwise, you can visit Porto Venere as a first stage, because the town has no train station. Then, you can get off the boat to visit the other villages on the way back. You can also mix with the train to visit Corniglia and /or return later.
The Cinque Terre ferry timetable
Once in Porto Venere, we recommend the 45 minutes tour of the Islands – Palmaria, Tino, and Tinetto.
In our opinion, it’s worth the price, even only to feel a little like a poet, such as George Sand and his De Musset or Lord Byron.
We also recommend leaving with the earliest ferry in the morning and visit Lerici as well!

Cinque Terre Ferry rates
The daily tickets cost 39€ (15€ for kids from 6 to 11 years old) and unlimited trips between the five villages and Porto Venere.
If you prefer only to visit Cinque Terre, you can get a limited daily ticket at at the box office in front of the pier.
Same thing if you simply want to take the ferry from one village to another.
Our tips to enjoy your trip on the Cinque Terre Ferry
Offshore is chilly, so better to provide something to cover you, but more importantly, the white of the boat and the sun glare on the sea can be burning … do not forget sunglasses and sunscreen!
