This is an essential part of the Cinque Terre coastal tour, because several of the coastal trails are closed due to landslides. The boats are relaxing and the views are great.

Yes, you can catch the ferry in Le spezia to the 5 cities. It was 35 Euros per person. Very much worth the price. The boats don’t run in choppy seas.
