Vip Boat Tours

For the first time ever, Summer 2016, we will be offering VIP sunset tours exclusively for our Villa Valentina guests with Angelo as your Captain and guide, on our family boat, Paulina. (maximum 8 guests).

Renowned for its incredible beauty & picturesque coastline, the Cinque Terre with its rich maritime-history, is a must-see from the perspective of the sea and there is no better way to see it then with Angelo….

As a 10th Generation fisherman from Monterosso, Angelo began his connection with the sea at an early age-fishing with his father. He eats, sleeps, and lives for boating in the Cinque Terre. Angelo reads the sea like most people read the daily newspaper. Salt water flows through his veins, and he’ll never get enough of it. Whether recounting stories or telling the history about the area, his passion, heart and love for the Cinque Terre is always obvious and he loves sharing it with our guests.

The Salt of the Sea, A Fisherman, Angelo will always be.

Book a once-in-a-lifetime memory.

Sunset Tour

Sunset Tours depart from Monterosso and cruise along the spectacular coast of the 5 Terre while enjoying a glass of prosecco and music.. We’ll stop in one of the villages for tapas and local wine. (3 hours).

If the weather is warm enough, a stop in one of the pristine coves along the way for a swim in the crystal clear waters (July & August) is a definite must. Angelo’s VIP tours are not a cookie-cutter kind of tour so be prepared to go-with-the-flow as Angelo will alter the tour according to weather and the group--however the tour goes it will be a memorable experience for all.

Private tours are available and are a great option for small groups or families wanting to have a fun and more intimate experience. We can accommodate up to 8 guests or as few as two…

Or another great alternative: a day tour with a gourmet seafood lunch—(not available in July or August) €125 per person all-inclusive

We’re all about options so let us know what you’d love to do and we’ll see if we can make it happen—being a VIP guest has its benefits!

Le Cinque Terre

Tiny villages, set like jewels into the Ligurian Coast and known as the Cinque Terre. The Cinque Terre is one of those places people tend to read about once and then dream about forever. An isolated part of the northwestern Italian region of Liguria, the Cinque Terre is a ruggedly beautiful stretch of coastline inset with five tiny villages perched between the Mediterranean and a range of steep coastal hills. The aura of romance about the place is enhanced by the very names of the five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The doorway is Levanto, a beautiful seaside town, the sixth sister of the Cinque Terre-- the perfect place to begin the coastal journey.
