Ferry travel in October

We will be spending 4 days in La Spezia at the end of our holiday and would like to take the ferry boat to other ports such as Ligure di Levante and Portofino.

I can not find any ferry lines that say they operate in October. Is this true? No ferries in October?

Hello Kathy,

We contacted the main ferry operator in the Gulf of La Spezia (http://www.navigazionegolfodeipoeti.it/ ) and they advised that October is considered an off-season period for them . In the off-season they only operate the shorter distances lines going from La Spezia to the Cinque Terre or Portovenere mainly due to weather/sea roughness considerations. You can find further details of the departure times/fares to the Cinque Terre and Portovenere here :
Ferry Boat Service La Spezia - 2012.

But in summary, it appears you will not be able to get to Levanto or Portofino by ferry ride in October. You can either take a train ride or hire a car instead.

We hope you have a lovely time and all the best,
