This private daytrip from Florence will make you discover the lovely town of Porto Venere on a private boat with stops for swimming and enjoying the great food of the region.
If you are in Florence, or in the countryside of Tuscany, this is a perfect way to enjoy some relaxing time on the sea away from the crowds. It is also a great alternative to the classic daytrip to Cinque Terre (that are also beautiful but generally more crowded).
Your private driver will pick you up at your hotel in Florence (contact us for a quote if you are staying somewhere else). In less than two hours you will reach the port of La Spezia. Here you will meet your private skipper and you will board your private boat. You will cruise along the romantic Gulf of Poets, which gets its name from the many artists who elected this area as their home. Among the various writers and poets who loved this place there are David Lawrence, George Sand, Lord Byron and Percy Shelley.
At the extreme southwestern tip of the gulf, the lovely town of Portovenere dominates its own tiny inlet. We will stop to visit the village and you will have about two hours to go around exploring on your own. The Doria Castle and the Romanesque church of St. Peter are not only interesting to visit but they also offer amazing photo opportunities thanks to the beautiful views on the sea and coastline. If you wish we can also organize a private guide who will show you around (you can select this additional feature from the options menu, inside the reservation box, in the upper right side of this page).
After Porto Venere you will get onboard your private boat again and navigate around the islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto where we will stop for swimming and sunbathe in some of the nicest spots. At the end of your private cruise, the skipper will take you back to the port of La Spezia where you will meet your private driver who will take you back to your hotel in Florence.
During the day there will be time to have lunch in a typical restaurant to enjoy the delicious local food. If you wish we can book for you one of the nice restaurants in the area. Or you may choose to have a light lunch served onboard by your skipper (you can select this additional feature from the options menu).
This will be a private tour: you will not be part of a group, it will just be you and your party. The boat and the private skipper will be entirely dedicated to you. If you wish we will be happy to customize the itinerary based on your wishes. This daytrip canbe done departing from Florence, La Spezia, Livorno or Genoa.
