What You Can Expect

Cinque Terre Day Trip from Siena

Enjoy a walk in the street of Manarola Village!

Meet your guide in central Siena, where you'll hop aboard your coach and travel toward Florence. Stop briefly to pick up fellow travelers before continuing west toward the UNESCO-listed Cinque Terre National Park.

Arrive in the famed region of the 'five lands,' comprising five fishing villages tacked into the Riviera’s dramatic sea cliffs. Explore Manarola first, said to be one of the oldest villages of the Cinque Terre, with free time to walk around the brightly-colored buildings.

Afterward, take the train north to Vernazza, known for its terraced hillsides and wine production. Take some time to wander the area before climbing aboard a sightseeing boat to Monterosso. Enjoy a complimentary lunch at a seaside trattoria, overlooking views of the bay. Then head to the beach for a swim or peruse the local shops independently before heading to Riomaggiore with your group.

Dating back to the 13th century, Riomaggiore is often considered the true jewel of the Cinque Terre, with its brightly-hued houses and private beaches. Enjoy a guided walking tour with your guide, before traveling back to Siena.


Please note: Due to a landslide which occurred at the end of September 2012, the famous path “Via dell’Amore” has been closed.

I enjoyed my one day tour of the Cinque Terre. All the staff were helpful. Transportation was smooth and efficient. And all in all it was a great day. Of course this area deserves much longer than one day - but if thats all the time you've got - this tour gives a great introduction.

We booked the tour out of Siena. We were picked up from Piazza Gramsci at the appointed time and driven to Florence to meet the other travelers. The tour guide was very informative, helpful and pleasant. Cinque Terre is a must even if it's for a day and Viator is well organized n is great value for $. Our return from Florence-Rome was just as hassle free.

The tour was amazing. It was fast paced as we visited four of the villages in one day. There was confusion about transportation from Sienna to Florence. No one was at the bus station to pick us up. But a driver was dispatched immediately after we called the Viator number. We had a wonderful day!

This was a great day out from Siena. Lucky for Amadeo, our excellent guide, there were only 11 of us in the group as there are a lot of deadlines to meet, for trains and the boat trip from Vernazza to Monterosso, so at times the day feels a little rushed. Good lunch of pasta, fresh fish and lemon sorbet. This is not a complaint, but enhanced communication from the local operator when I called to confirm pick-up time/location would have helped - I would have liked to have had an idea ahead of time that, as the only passenger starting the day in Siena, I would be taken to Florence by private car, and driven back to Siena at the end of the day by the tour bus driver who did not speak English. Arriving in the dark at what was no doubt the bus company depot in the middle of nowhere was a little disconcerting, so I was happy to see my smiling driver Renzo from the morning who drove me back into town.

Cinque Terre was beautiful! And the tour wasn't as rushed as I had first expected. The towns we visited were pretty small villages, so it was easy to walk them in the allotted time. The guide was very nice and friendly, and the lunch he arranged for us was delicious. I enjoyed this trip very much.

We were well looked after by our guide, Amadeus. Keep us fully informed as to timings, and was a constant reminder to be sure to guard our belongings, as pickpockets are a problem in the area. The lunch provided was just great...great pasta, wine, dessert, a nice shot of Limoncino (as opposed to Limoncello)...a great way to end our day @ Cinque Terre. Highly recommend this tour.
