Now that we are back home I did follow-up on my promise to give you more info on the tour to Cinque Terre. You should e-mail Francesco at
He is the manager of Maxirent's rental car office located at the Livorno Port Terminal, and a nice guy who does speak some English. I assume he can handle larger groups than 5 but have no idea of the cost. We do not have any experience using him as a guide, but we did rent one of his cars (we like to drive ourselves in Italy) this past May. Here are the details of the offer he made to us in May. The price is EUR 65,00 PER PERSON.
The rate includes:
• rental of a 7 seaters car (the one in the picture in attachment)
• motorway costs
• special “cinque terre card” including ALL train tickets + entrance into the “Lovers’ road – La via dell’Amore”
• car parking
• driving service
Hope you have a great cruise.
