The aura of isolation that has surrounded the five small ancient coastal villages known as the ""Cinque Terre” has made this unique area of Italy very popular with visitors.

Take in the dramatic coastal views of the villages that lie between the mountain and the sea. See the mighty cliffs, explore the narrow alleys of the villages and taste the local wines.

Itinerary

Enjoy a full day tour visiting the beautiful Cinque Terre , the “ Five lands “, a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera punctuated by picturesque small fishing villages.

Travelling by small 8 passengers vehicles, we’ll start our day visiting the enchanting hamlet Corniglia ( only small vehicles can get here ) , that clings to an impressive hundred meters high cliff and that we reach by following a panoramic road. On the way up to Corniglia we’ll stop at panoramic viewpoints for spectacular views of the coast . A walk through this delightful hamlet will be followed by an aperitif, wine accompanied by bruschettas at a local wine bar which is included in the price of the tour.

We then continue our day visiting picturesque Vernazza. With its large open harbour, castle and church, it conjures up all the magic of the Cinque Terre. Here you’ll enjoy free time to walk around and to have an optional lunch ( not included ).

After 2 hrs in Vernazza, we ‘ll take the shared boat ride to reach Riomaggiore and to enjoy the view of the dramatic coastline from the water ( in condition of bad weather and from 3rd week of October until march , boats do not operate and will be substituted by the coastal train ).

In Riomaggiore, the most southern village of the Cinque terre , with its tower houses built on a cliff, you will meet again your driver-tour escort. And after a walk through the village in his company you’ll reach Manarola, one of the oldest towns in the cinque terre, by coastal train.

After having visited the village of Manarola , we’ll make our way back to Florence, where we will arrive at about 7:30pm.
