Full description
Depart from Montecatini in the morning and with your driver meet the rest of the group from Florence. Spend an unforgettable day discovering the most impressive Ligurian landscapes. In this area, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Earth and sea blend and create a unique landscape. The area consists of kilometers of rocky coasts with caves, beaches, hiking paths and breathtaking views. First, you will reach Portovenere, an elegant and popular touristic destination where nature and human architecture are perfectly balanced.

Then, the tour will take you through the Cinque Terre National Park by train and/or ferry boat. You will first visit Manarola, a tiny urban jewel characterized by Genoese style ‘case-torri.’ Then, head to Vernazza, overlooked by the remains of a medieval castle with a cylindrical tower.

Finally, you will reach Monterosso, known as the ‘pearl of Cinque Terre.’ This ancient fishing village with lovely beaches and lush vegetation covering the rocks will certainly enchant you. After lunch, have the chance to taste the local ‘Limoncino ligure’ in a quaint wine shop. In the afternoon, you will have free time for a swim or a walk around the village.
