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.

Great tour to end our vacation with! Jose was a very knowledgable tour guide and has a great sense of humor, even at 0700!!! He told us where to go to get awesome pictures and even more great views! We were able to go to four out of the five fishing villages and were lucky enough to have good weather! The bus was very comfortable and our driver got us safe to and from Florence! Great tour, great experience, great tour guide, great day!!! Highly recommend to others to do this tour....just check the weather first!

Cinque Terre is a five star visit. We took a bus from Florence into the middle of the 5 lands where we had a short 15 minute hike into town. From there we took rail to the far end of the lands. We had great weather and the boats were operating. So, our next hop was to ferry from one end of the Cinque Terre to the other. What a fantastic view of the five lands from Sea. Definitely a high lite. The picturesque multi colored towns that are embedded in the coastal mountains are so unique that it makes a lifetime experience. The trip was so good that I am passing on down grading the score because of very crowded and cramped bus ride to and from Florence. Even with that bit of uncomfortable trip, I highly recommend this side trip out of Florence.

Great trip with the excellent Julio as our tour guide. The itinerary was a good mix of being guided around and having free time to explore on our own. The Cinque Terre villages are gorgeous and it was fun getting around between them using both the train and boat. We were told that the boat portion is only available when the weather allows, and this happens 60 of the time so we were happy to be able to do that - the views are great from the boat. Julio led the tour in English, French and German - although, since there was only one party each speaking French and German he frequently handled those portions 1-on-1, which was nice for everyone - they received personal attention and could ask questions, and the rest of us were freed up to explore on our own.
