Description - What to expect

Take a full-day tour to the enchanting Cinque Terre, one of Italy’s most captivating scenes. Cinque Terre means ‘five lands,’ and this is precisely what it is. The region listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site is made up of five charming villages that line the Italian Riviera.

Your day trip begins in central Florence, where you meet your guide and hop aboard your coach to head out toward the seashore. First head to the small village of Manarola, home to medieval monuments and an excess of grapevines. Stroll the harbor and take photographs of the beautiful, colorful buildings that cling to the cliff.

Take a 10-minute ride on a train to reach Vernazza, one of the most colorful and photographed fishing villages in the area, said to produce some of the most excellent olive oil in Italy. Enjoy some free time to explore this little town and visit its bustling square and its enchanting small harbor.

Next, board the train once again and head towards the ancient fishing village of Monterosso, considered “The Pearl of the Cinque Terre”. Take your time to relax on its beautiful sandy beaches and swim in the crystalline turquoise waters. Take in the impressive beauty of the scenery as you are boarding the boat to your the final destination of your tour, the southernmost village of Riomaggiore.

The village dates back to the 13th century and is famous for its local wine and the unique scenery. Admire the pastel-colored buildings as you stroll along the cobblestone streets before you make your way back to Florence for the finale of your tour.
