The Cinque Terre is incredibly popular among travelers to Italy, but staying overnight isn’t always an option. Luckily, you can explore and hike through the five colorful villages on a convenient day trip tour from Florence—here are your options.

Cinque Terre Day Trips
Day trips to the UNESCO–listed Cinque Terre are a great option for visitors to Florence who want to get out to the coast but don’t have the time to stay a few days. A group tour will allow you to see all the top spots and may include a guided hiking trip through the five villages, the chance to swim in the turquoise waters of the Ligurian Sea, free time to wander a seaside town or two, or perhaps even a boat ride so you can enjoy views of the Cinque Terre from the water.

Combo Tours to the Cinque Terre
To make the most of your time and cover more ground in one day, choose a tour from Florence that combines a visit to the Cinque Terre with another top destination in the area. After checking out the Cinque Terre with your tour guide, make a stop in Pisa to see the iconic Leaning Tower, or continue your exploration of the Ligurian Coast with a stop in Portovenere on what's known as the Italian Riviera.

Things to Know
  • Day trips from Florence to the Cinque Terre are typically 12 to 13 hours, including transport time, whether they focus solely on the Cinque Terre or include a visit to another location.
  • The Cinque Terre's five towns (Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Monterosso al Mare, and Riomaggiore) are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park (Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre) and connected via a famous trail open to hiking.
  • A rocky coastal area, the Cinque Terre includes trails that are quite narrow and others that are at the edge of somewhat steep cliffs. Some spots lack handrails, so wear good walking shoes to keep your footing sure.
  • Bring water and sunscreen for any Cinque Terre hikes, as there's little to no shade along parts of the trails.
