Total rip off. Bad service so unorganised we got to the front to hop on and were left behind had to wait an hour for next boat. 33 euros per person and they leave you behind. Seats are uncomfortable and staff are rude and arrogant.

Good news and bad news! Bad news is only one operator on this route! Good news is that it is a great service. Book through third parties and tour operators and frankly expect problems! We took the train from La Spezia to Monterosso and bought...More

We took the ferry from Monterosso to Portovenere and back (due to a train strike, we had no other options), 66 euros for two adults. We asked if we could get off at one of the villages, Manarola, and catch the next ferry back to...More

Reliable safe vessels are the best way to see the Cinque Terre from Portovenere. Ticket booth staff are some of the rudest people I have ever encountered. Best to learn Italian in advance because asking basic questions in English gets you scowls!

HIGHLY recommend Consorzio Marrittimo to anyone wanting to see all 5 towns of Cinque Terre in one day! We arrived at the dock (quick 15 minute walk from the La Spezia train station) around 8:15 for the 9:15 departure, purchased our tickets quickly (they accept...More

I booked a boat ride from La Spezia to Monterosso and after the boarding I figured the cashier gave me 10 euros less change than I was supposed to get. These kind of actions are the ones I hate the most since I don't like...More
