Full description
Explore the villages of Cinque Terre on a full-day excursion from Florence, and experience the best aspects of this protected World Heritage Site as you walk along the ancient trails that connect the picturesque villages. Cinque Terre comprises a stretch of rugged, unspoiled coast along the Italian Riviera. Its name derives from the fact that it is a grouping of 5 picturesque fishing villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso. It has been well-preserved because of its isolation and continues to be protected by its UNESCO status and its status as an Italian national park. Led by your knowledgeable guide, you’ll walk the spectacular coastline. Visit the village of Manarola and continue with a lovely boat journey (weather permitting) to Monterosso, renowned for its beautiful beach and small craftsmen’s shops, here you will have the option to relax on the golden sands and to enjoy leisure time for a refreshing swim in the Mediterranean. A delicious local Lunch is served in a typical restaurant by the seaside and the hills declining down to the rocky coves. After a short train ride, stop in Vernazza, one of the prettiest village, and spend your free time tasting coffee or drinks in one of the cheerful bars and cafés. Take the train again to Riomaggiore and visit some of its picturesque shops. From Riomaggiore, a train ride concludes the Cinque Terre visit, before returning to Florence by bus. Please note that the order of the visits may change.

Very good overview of the 5 lands, visit of the 4 main villages. The guide, Martha, very friendly and gave us good information. If we had to give a negative point, it would be the meal. The restaurant did not have a sea view, and the meal was not very high quality … basic. I still recommend this tour good value for money. The tour keeps its promises

Martha was a fantastic tour leader and Francesco a great driver. Really enjoyed the tour and the lunch. Cinque Terre is far enough away from Florence that planning a similar day trip on my own would have taken way too long. Booking this tour was a great way to get a feel for those village’s

The guide Martha very nice and attentive. It was a full day tour, and although we were tired, we enjoyed it very much. We visited 4 of the 5 towns, they are small and the weather was very good in each one. I was expecting the lunch to be of better quality but for the cost, it was fine. I highly recommend it!!
