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.

Some of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. Be prepared for a long day but 100 worth it.

Everytime I turned one view was as beautiful as the last. Colorful and breathetaking. A must see when you visit Italy. It was a full day, the food was good and the people on the tour were very pleasant. Make sure you wear your best sneakers for this one. Much if it is up and down hill walking although we did what we could. We were on our own to tour what we wanted and of course shop!

Long day trip to Cinque Terre from Florence but totally worth it. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed this trip very much. The bus ride there and back was fine although a bathroom on board or a stop would have been nice. The Cinque Terre area is so pretty. The amount of time we had was appropriate to get a feel for the area. Thankfully the weather was great and we were able to take the boat and see the towns from the water - it would have still been a nice trip, but not nearly as good without the boat.

It's a long day, but well worth it!

It's my second time on this excursion, first with my wife, then my son. I was surprised both times how well the guides organized such a large group. Each village has its own personality, and this tour ensures you get the time to feel each of them. The first time, my wife and I were able to hike between villages, which was very special the working terraces vineyards, the many spectacular panoramas. The second time, the tour didn't hike but the bus, train, and boat were great experiences in themselves. We got see the villages from behind them, in the middle of them, and from the sea.

A great destination, and an inexpensive way to do it.

This trip gave me a taste of Cinque Terre and made me realize that it would be absolutely beautiful to spend a full day in each city. The guide was amazing, pointing things out on the bus ride and also on the boat ride. She managed to make us all aware of our time limitations and made sure that we were all together for the ride between towns.

This was a very long day and we really should have done it from La Spezia however it was terrific. We travelled on a double decker coach which was very comfortable. We visited 4 of the 5 towns in Cinque Terre. We spent some time on trains and had. Ferry rude which gave us the opportunity to see the coast line from the water. We had a good lunch and plenty of free time to explore. Our guides did a wonderful job keeping us together and informing us about the area.
