What You Can Expect

Cinque Terre Small Group Day Trip from Florence

Explore the gorgeous Cinque Terre on a day trip from Florence!

Meet your guide and small tour group of 8 people or fewer at the Piazza della Repubblica in central Florence. Board a comfortable tour vehicle and depart for Cinque Terre, a collection of five postcard-perfect fishing hamlets that hug a rugged coastal stretch of the Italian Riviera.

Travel through Tuscany and into the Liguria region for your initial stop in the village of Manarola. Pause for fantastic photo ops of the coastline and the cerulean ocean beyond, then stroll through the narrow alleys and quaint squares of the town itself, one of the oldest in Cinque Terra. Sip a glass or two of the region's famous wines at a charming local wine bar (own expense). 

Departing Manarola, meet your tour escort at a prearranged location to board your boat to Vernazza. During your scenic boat journey, sit back and view the coast gliding by with rolling hills as the backdrop. 

Go ashore in Vernazza after cruising through the picturesque open harbor. Use your free time to walk around, visit the village's castle and church. Stop at one of the many waterfront restaurants for a traditional Italian lunch (own expense).

Following your time in Vernazza, climb into a tour vehicle for a drive through picturesque Corniglia before returning to your starting point.

The tour met in the morning and happy to say it was punctual. We had group of 8 people in a white van with tour guide being the driver. The driver is more a hybrid-tour guide. We were all just dropped off and told we can do x at the spot, and need to back by x time at x place to move to next sightseeing spot. So this was not a guided tour, but more roam around on your own tour. So know this before you sign up for this activity. Our driver-hybrid-tour guide was friendly. I liked that he drove safely and he was utmost professional.

This was a fantastic experience. Adriano was a perfect guide. He was an excellent/safe driver and seemed genuinely happy to be with us. We traveled with two children (10 and 15) and grandparents (70 and 73) and Adriano was able to keep everyone happy and entertained. Words can and #39;t describe Cinque Terra ...

Our guide Luca Bartoli from Livorno (he and #39;s on Facebook) works for Tuscan Travelers. He was amazing! Very fun and knowledgeable. I recommend contacting him directly and using him for any tours in the Florence area! The van was first class as well. Cinque Terra was very memorable! So glad I did it

The small group tour experience was a wonderful one for my wife and I. Our guide/driver was quite knowledgeable and fluent in English. He supplemented the wonderful natural scenery with relevant facts, and information that made the tour that much more enjoyable for us. I highly recommend this tour.

Cinque Terra is simply beautiful. Well worth the drive from Florence. Great views. Amazed me how they are able to farm on the side of cliffs. Our driver and tour guide was excellent. He was from the US who has been living in Florence for years. Had an interesting perspective of Florence.
