Cinque Terre is situated on the Italian Riviera and comprises five charming and colorful fishing villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. It is one of the most popular and worthwhile day trips from Florence.
The full day-trip begins bright and early. A little before 7am your guide will come and collect you at your hotel. Board an air-conditioned coach and relax on a 2-hour journey to Cinque Terre, five romantic villages clinging to the rugged ravine.
The first stop is Manarola, the oldest of the Cinque Terre villages. The village’s economy is based on fishing and viticulture.
From Manarola, you will take a train to Riomaggiore, a charming thirteenth century hamlet famous for its local wine, and with a little over 1.500 residents.
Continue the journey to Monterosso, located in a small natural gulf by boat (only operational until October and subject to the weather conditions). Monterosso is famous for its long beaches and crystal-blue sea. During the journey, you’ll admire the stunning views of Cinque Terre from the water.
Upon arrival in Monterosso, you will stop for lunch (if you have booked this option) and you will have time to discover this charming village at your own leisure. From Monterosso you will continue the tour by train to Vernazza, a delightful fishing village enclosing a natural harbor. You will arrive here at approximately 3:45pm.
Finally, you will hop back on a train that will cross La Spezia until you get to where the coach is waiting for you to head back to Florence.
If you prefer to explore the Cinque Terre at your own pace, you can also book this tour and discover the area at your own leisure. This option includes a bus ride to Manarola and then you will have all day to visit the villages which you prefer. This option does not include the transportation between the different villages.
Your host, who will accompany you on the bus, will indicate the meeting point at La Spezia, which you must get to at the end of the day to travel back to Florence by bus.
This tour includes a pick-up option from centrally-located hotels (not apartments) in Florence. When you book the tour, please give us the address of your hotel. If you're staying in the outskirts or if you don't want to be collected from your hotel, your host will be waiting for you at the arranged meeting point.
The tour includes an English speaking guide, but the tour can sometimes be carried out in two languages.
