What to expect

On this tour you will walk through the villages of the Cinque Terre in one day, admiring and exploring these picturesque small towns in northern Italy.

The Cinque Terre is a beautiful stretch of rugged coast and the only unspoiled part left of the lovely Italian Riviera. It takes its name from the five picturesque fishing villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. They have been inaccessible from the land for centuries, isolated by steep mountains and valleys on one side and by the sea on the other. Thanks to its isolation, the unspoiled charm of the Cinque Terre is a protected World Heritage Site and a National Park. Led by a knowledgeable guide, you will discover this spectacular coastline.

You'll first visit the village of Manarola and continue with a lovely boat journey (weather permitting) to Monterosso, which is renowned for its beautiful beach and small craftsmen’s shops. Then, with a short train ride, you will reach Vernazza, where you will have free time to sit in one of its cheerful bars and cafés.

By train you'll arrive in Riomaggiore where you will have some free time for a refreshing swim in the Mediterranean Sea or shopping. Here a delicious local lunch is served in a typical restaurant with a perfect view of the sea and the hills declining down to the rocky coves. From Riomaggiore, you will travel back by train to La Spezia, concluding your Cinque Terre visit, before returning to Florence by coach.
