Staying in the Cinque Terre but wanting to visit Portofino? Usually this day trip would require a train and bus ride but starting July 3rd through August 28th on every Monday and Friday you can catch a ferry instead!
The dedicated ferry will depart Monterosso at 9:50am and arrive back to the village at approximately 5:20pm. Passengers will be allowed circa 3 hours of free time in Portofino before boarding the ferry again. Portofino is actually pretty tiny so that should be plenty of time to have a good look around.
Rates for the day trip are €33 for adults and €18 for children ages 6-11 (accompanied by at least one adult).
Of course, it’s important to remember that the ferry will not run unless sea and weather conditions permit.
