Full description
Meet your tour leader at the Florence Santa Maria Novella train station and board a train to Pisa. During the trip, the tour leader will provide information about the history of the sites you are soon to see. The first part of the tour is a trip to Pisa and its world-famous gems. During medieval times the old city of Pisa was a powerful trading center and you can still see its abundance in the richness of the monumental complex of Piazza dei Miracoli that houses the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Monumental Cemetery, and the remarkable Leaning Tower, from which Galileo Galilei carried out his experiments on gravity.

Afterward, you will journey to the enchanted area of Cinque Terre, where colorful villages are embedded among the rocks like pearls in a jewel. Discover this romantic coastline and take plenty of amazing pictures. Stop first in Monterosso, with its double face, the old and the new city, the only of the five villages that features a sandy beach. Here you will have time at leisure to explore, have lunch or sunbathe on the beach. Then board onto a ferry that will let you admire the towns of Corniglia and Vernazza, perched on the cliffs.

At the end of the boat trip, you will reach the most charming and romantic of the Cinque Terre villages, Manarola. The tiny harbour features a boat ramp, picturesque colourful houses facing the sea, a tiny piazza with seafood restaurants and cafés. At the end of the tour, return to Florence by train.
