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.
Cinque Terre is definitely a must-do for anyone who visits the Tuscany region. We recommend NOT to take the lunch given but rather eat at one of the many amazing restaurants of Monte Rosso, you really need to try the local sea food. We were a couple, had an amazing time all thanks to our guide Super Mario. Loved his jokes, he was a very good company and took really good care of us.
Absolutely amazing site to see if you want to see some of the beautiful coast line of Italy. Fortunate enough to have 3 wonderful guides led by Lucia. They picked us up in a comfortable bus which has WIFI - perfect for the Kids. Led us through a 12 hour tour did not feel that way even though a 2 hour bus ride there and back including bus, train in between the towns and a boat ride. Cinque Terre is lined by great mountain views and obviously a gorgeous and crystal clear sea. We opted for the included lunch which was fine Seafood Salad, a pesto pasta and ice cream for dessert. Also included a bottle of while wine per table. Accomodating staff at restaurant. Finally got a chance to have some free time which we used to go for a refreshing swim. A must do tour and dont forget your bathing suit!
A great day out, 2bus rides 5 train rides and 1 boat, excellent well worth it, and very well organised perfect timing all day. Guide was very helpful. Fabulous scenery would definately recommend this one.
We had a wonderful day. Started with some rain but turned out sunny and warm. Waves were too rough for the ferries but made for beautiful scenery with waves breaking on the shores. The included lunch was very nice. Te villages are amazing.
Wow! What an adventure! This tour was a lot of fun. We truly enjoyed the beautiful scenery and our guide, Mario had a special treat for us. He sang beutiful songs on our way back from the tour. If you decide to take this tour, you will be entertained on the bus as well! The food was also great!
Excellent. The tour guides were great
Cinque Terre is an incredible place to visit and experience. It was wonderful to walk around the different towns and see the colourful buildings. It is beautiful to see. We are so glad we took the tour as it was very well organized and got us to all the different locations without us having to do it on our own. Enough time was spent in each place that we did not feel we missed out on anything. It was a stress free way to visit Cinque Terre for a day.
This tour was great! Everything went off smoothly and on time. Our guide, Mario, was also very good. I would recommend this tour - it was fun and well worth the money.
Mario or Super Mario as we called him, was an excellent host. He had us laughing all day, and did a great job keeping our big group together all day.
Our tour guide was kind, funny and full of knowledge. He had a great voice, both speaking and singing! Yes... He sang for us! Our tour guide Mario was wonderful! I would recommend this trip to anyone who has never been to Cinque Terre! Now, we can go back on our own and spend time the places we loved the most. It was a great way to see the highlights of a beautiful place in a safe and fun environment!
