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.

      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.

      i had so much fun! the host (his name started with a C but i cant quite remember) was amazing. a great way to see cinque terre: HOWEVER, the only downside is that the itinerary was not accurate to what we did, we only spent 5 or 10 minutes on the boat, and we went to the villages in kind of an odd order. however super fun, just dont do this for the boat ride!

      Really enjoyed this trip, each of the villages were beautiful. You get about 1 hour in each of the villages, maybe a bit more in 1 of them to have a some food and a swim. The trip is well planned out (if the trains are on time). The tour guide was brilliant and gave a bit of information about each village as we arrived there. The boat trip was good but a bit bumpy but fantastic views on the boat. It was especially nice as the villages were a lot less crowded than usual due to the pandemic. Would definitely recommend this trip as a way to see Cinque Terre in 1 day.
