Full description
Once you arrive at the port of La Spezia, meet your tour leader at the cruise terminal. Take a 20-minute walk to arrive at the train station from where you will begin your adventure. On the walk, you will discover the beautiful city center of La Spezia. Trains are undoubtedly the ideal means of transportation to explore the area, in just 15 minutes, passing through the sheer heights of the Ligurian Sea, you will reach Vernazza, one of the most colorful villages in the area. Here you can enjoy some free time in this picturesque village, characterized by pastel-colored houses with beautiful views of crystal clear waters. The second stop will be Monterosso, the largest of the Cinque Terre villages, which also owns a stunning beach characterized by fine white sand and a clear and transparent sea. Here you will have a surprise reserved for you, a tasting of delicious Limoncino in a traditional shop. This exquisite liqueur is ideal to toast for the wonderful day that you are spending, immersed in the nature, colors, and flavors of this fascinating and unique land. After having some free time in Monterosso, take the train to Riomaggiore, the last stop before coming back to La Spezia. This small village, like the other four, offers breathtaking views of the coast, as well as glimpses of the daily lives of the fishermen with their traditional boats that you will see tied to the port. Also, choose the best starting point for you: the cruise port or the train station.

    We had a wonderful day in the Cinque Terre! Constantino & the team made everything very pleasant & easy. There was great communication before the tour and Constantino was very clear with his instructions on the day, so we always knew exactly where we needed to be, & where to go in each village, depending on our tastes & priorities. We had a lovely swim at Monterosso and at Vernazza, while others enjoyed a longer lunch or just walking in the villages. I’d definitely recommend this tour. Thank you for a wonderful day!

    We had done the tour with Eliza who was a competent guide and responded to our every need. She picked us up from the cruise port. We walked through La Spezia to the train station, from where we took the different villages by train. The ratio of guided tour to free time was good. We were a small group of four people which was very pleasant. The tour was in English. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

    Amazing tour with Eva who was the most informative and gracious tour host. Eva looked after our small group and spoke English very well, as well as fluent Italian and Spanish. I had such a fun day even though it rained a little bit and was overcast. The train rides between each town were well timed by Eva and she always looked out for our safety at all times! I highly recommend going on this tour, value for money and tour precious holiday time!
