Full description

Join an adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cinque Terre. Explore these 5 secluded villages built onto seaside cliffs, connected to one another only by paths, boats, or trains. Your trip begins early in the morning when you’ll meet your guide in Florence to begin the picturesque drive to the first village. Along the way, your guide will give you a thorough introduction to the region. After you arrive, the rest of the day’s activities are up to you. With the whole day free, it’s up to you as to where you go or how you spend your time. Take a scenic boat or train transfers to the 4 other villages of Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare, and Corniglia. Wander the cobblestone streets and marvel at the closely-packed, pastel-colored houses rising up from the coast. Head down to one of the many stunning beaches for white sand and crystal clear waters. Or enjoy a leisurely Italian lunch, overlooking the dramatic cliffs. After a full day hopping between the charming villages, you’ll board the bus for the journey back to Florence.

    It was great to have someone show us each town where to get on and off the trains etc but there wasn’t much history of the area .

    The ladies were wonderful and we had a great experience. However I saw in my checking account that I was double billed for our trip. Please advise. Thanks, Joseph Brady

    During the long bus ride we received no historic information on our Cinque Terre tour at all. Would have been nice to learn a little background history of the area. For our first stop at approx 10am nothing in the town was open beautiful views bUT no shops or restaurants were open. At the end of our tour no directions on how to get back to either our hotel or the train station or a taxi. They should have either a map or taxis available. The actual scenery of the Cinque Terre was beautiful. And it was supposed to be a small group tour of 20 or less, but actually had 46 people. I would hire a private guide next time.
