What to expect

Spend an unforgettable day discovering one of the most enchanting landscapes in the world: the Cinque Terre National Park and its five villages hanging between sea and land, a paradise that has been declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

The tour begins at daybreak whit the arrival in Manarola. This village, dating back to the early 13th century, is famous for its historic atmosphere and local wine. Admire the houses leaning one against the other and stroll along the narrow cobbled alleyways.

You'll then reach Vernazza by train, one of the most colorful fishing villages in the area, where you will have some free time to sit on the tiny harbor and relax, breathing in the atmosphere of this unique area out of time.

Take the train again to Monterosso, the ancient village considered "The Pearl of the Cinque Terre". Here you will have plenty of free time to enjoy the enchanting sandy beaches, as well as the lush vegetation surrounding the little town. Plunge into the crystal clear sea and sunbathe before taking the boat to your last destination.

Feel the breeze on your skin and enjoy stunning panoramic views as you sail along the coastline to Riomaggiore. Explore this delicious seaside town surrounded by a small natural port before making your way back to Florence.
