Private Easy Cinque Terre & Pisa day trip from the port of Livorno

Want to visit the Cinque Terre but have limited mobility or stamina? With our private Easy Cinque Terre &amp; Pisa excursion you can! <br><br>Our courteous and knowledgeable driver will pick you up right at the ship. We will visit Portovenere, Vernazza and Corniglia -- three of the most beautiful and indicative places in the Cinque Terre area. We've selected them because they're quite flat, so they're manageable even for those who use mobility aids. <br><br>You will travel in air-conditioned comfort in a sedan or minivan, which enables us to bring you into the village or reasonably close, where buses aren't permitted. <br><br>At the end of the day we'll make a quick stop in Pisa.<br><br>Taking the ferry to travel from Portovenere to Vernazza is an option (extra cost). <br><br>Note: In Italy drivers can share information while you are in the vehicle but are NOT permitted to go with you once leave the vehicle. Local licensed guides who can accompany you on foot are available for additional cost.

On the hills of Montenero, overlooking Livorno and the sea is the sacred Sanctuary of the Madona Of Montenero, she has been worshiped since the 14 century, the view is beautiful and the sanctuary is a place of peace and prayer, there are many small paintings describing the miracles people have been blessed with. Worth seeing.Try to avoid Sundays, and religious holidays, too many people.

Our group took the bus from Livorno to the town of Montenero, which was just a 25-minute ride. We then took the funicular (an inclined plane railway tram) to the top of the hill where the sanctuary is located. It was a Thursday, and already late in the afternoon when we arrived, so the place was pretty much empty. The patios around the piazza had a few people sitting around having coffee. We went into the church, which was almost empty as well; a good thing because it was so quiet and peaceful. After saying a prayer, we walked around and marvelled at the beautiful art works inside the church. The altar was simple but beautiful, and the paintings and art works above the main doors were impressive. At the piazza, there was a viewing deck overlooking the Livorno skyline. We enjoyed the magnificent sunny afternoon view to the west, with the blazing orange sunlight reflecting on the waters of the Livorno Bay. As always, we took some pictures of the view (always a good idea to have a decent camera with you). Very much worth the visit; we wished that we could stay for the early evening to see the Livorno skyline by night while having dinner at one of the patios in the piazza, but we already had something scheduled for that evening. Highly recommended!

The shrine of Our Lady of Grace, this place is just so peaceful, it has some amazing views over the bay, it is on a hill accessed by a cable train, certainly a must view whilst in Livorno, so tranqil

A lovely, peaceful location with great views over the bay. Make sure you check the opening times as the sanctuary was closed for lunch whilst I was there. The grotto and toilets were still open.
