Full description

Cinque Terre is one of Italy's most enchanting destinations. Each of these unforgettable little cities will take your breath away with their gravity-defying dance above the azure waters. This day trip will give you an unforgettable and fun introduction to this coastal gem. Begin your tour of these UNESCO sites at daybreak with your arrival in La Spezia. Board a train to Riomaggiore, a quaint medieval town dating to the 13th century. Marvel at the winding streets of this village and its charming houses leaning one against the other. Next, head over to Manarola to enjoy panoramic views. Continue on to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village considered the "pearl of the Cinque Terre." Finally, take a boat across to Vernazza, whose natural port has kept it safe from invaders for centuries.

    The tour guides were AMAZING!!! The bus ride and boat ride were great. I would've preferred 3 out of 5 villages with a little longer at each village with a less hectic rush to the transport. And to know in advance to bring enough euro to pay for a spot on the beach. There was no free spot to sit or change our clothes so we didn't get to swim as planned.

    I had a really great day out with Renata; she was an excellent guide and kept us well coordinated and on time. When booking this trip, I think it is important to keep in mind that it is a full day tour that covers a lot,but not everything in Cinque Terre can be covered in a day! I expect to return by myself to one of the villages this week to spend a day bathing, and I am really glad that I did the tour so that I have seen most of the villages and know exactly where I want to go.

    Very good excursion to the Cinque Terre. Our guides, Elizabetha and Francesco, were very kind and fun. They spoke French very well. The program and schedules were perfectly respected in a good mood. However, we would have preferred to have less free time in Vernazza which did not give us more time at all, and more time in Riomaggiore.
