What to expect

Leave Florence and its manmade masterpieces behind and get ready to hit the Italian seaside as you head to Liguria. Famous for its stunning scenery, incredible food and picturesque beaches, Cinque Terre is also home to Cinque Terre, the much acclaimed string of seaside villages along the Italian Riviera. On this day trip, you'll explore these charming villages and see what makes them so special.

You'll be whisked away from Florence on an air-conditioned coach with an expert guide on hand to fill you in on the facts and history of Tuscany and Liguria. You'll hop on board a quaint, local train which will take you along the coast, offering you views like no other, and drop you at your first stop of the day. Vernazza is one of the most stunning spots on the west coast of Italy with colorful homes peppering the scenery and a gorgeous beach. You'll enjoy some free time here to get acquainted with the village before moving on to Monterosso. The largest town among the Cinque Terre, Monterosso is the perfect spot to sample one of the region's local dishes, stroll around the town centre, check out the local shops or even swim!

Then, it's time to head on to the last two stops on this fascinating day trip, Manarola and Riomaggiore. These two charming villages offer spectacular, sweeping views of the sea and will make you feel as though you've stepped into a painting! You'll have time to explore them at your own pace before hopping back on the coach to Florence.
