What You Can Expect

Cinque Terre Day Trip with Transport from Florence

Enjoy your free time in Monterosso, also called 'the pearl of the Cinque Terre'

The Cinque Terre is one of Italy’s most captivating landscapes. Translated as ‘five lands,’ the region is made up of five unique fishing villages that line the Italian Riviera.

Your day trip will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide and hop aboard your coach to head out toward the seashore. Stop first in the southernmost village of Riomaggiore, dating back to 13th century. Beloved for its local wine and incomparable scenery, admire the pastel-colored buildings as you follow your guide along the cobblestone streets.

Head to the tiny village of Manarola next, home to medieval relics and a plethora of grapevines. Stroll the harbor and take snapshots of the beautiful, bright buildings that cling to the cliff.

Then, weather permitting, hop aboard your boat to travel to Monterosso. If you choose to include lunch with your ticket, settle down in one of the village’s restaurants for a traditional helping of seafood and pasta, complemented by wine and water. (A sample menu can be found in the Itinerary section.)

Afterward, with taste buds and stomach sated, enjoy some time to explore independently. Unpack your bathing suit and hit the jeweled waters of Monterosso’s stunning beaches.

Make a final stop in Vernazza, bordered by terraced olive groves that are said to produce some of the finest olive oil in Italy. Explore the bustling square and winding streets at your leisure, before returning back to Florence.


Sample Menu:
First course:
  • Mixed seafood platter
Second course:
  • Pasta with pesto sauce
  • Dessert of the day

This was a great tour thanks to our guide Irene. She made the day perfect in every way for both the Spanish and English speaking group we had. I don't usually go for the set meals on tours, however this one is truly great! Don't bother wasting time looking for a restaurant. The lunch option is fast and fantastic! It's a long day, crowded with tourists like yourself, but worth it. We were lucky to have perfect weather, and yo enjoy the great views from the boat. Thanks again to Irene!

The tour was great. Our tour guide, Claudia, was excellent. She managed the group and gave clear instructions where and when to before leaving for the next village each time. Cinque Terre is worth going even though the crowds can get rather large.

Cinque Terre is beautiful. We were able to see 4 of the 5 cities and each had their own character. It was so nice to enjoy time by the water. I highly recommend this trip.
