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.


Sample Menu:
First course:
  • Mixed seafood platter
Second course:
  • Pasta with pesto sauce
  • Dessert of the day

Beautiful landscapes and history together. Definitely one place to visit in a lifetime. This time of the year is the less visited by tourist so is a great idea take this into account if you don't want big crowds.

It was rushed and uncomfortable. We boarded the bus and took the first 2 seats which turned out to be for the guides. We almost ended up being separated. Suggest to tag the guide seats before boarding. There was no toilet in the bus and someone had to declare an emergency in the 2.5 hour bus ride just to get to the toilet

Our tour guide Eva was wonderful. She had everything planned out perfectly and was very informative. She made sure that we did it all and saw it all. Thank you Eva. My husband and I would do it again.

First of all, our guide, Eva, was wonderful! There was another guide who spoke Portugese, Carla, she was good too. There were issues such as the microphone not working on the bus, the boat transport between the villages was cancelled due to choppy seas and it was very, very hot and Eva persevered through it all. At the end, some tourists were upset because of a toilet issue, which is not anyone's fault, everyone was hot and tired. I thought Eva did a great job on a hot, difficult day. The crowds in the train stations were incredible. Lots of old tourists, I don't think they understood what the tour involved. This tour is a lot of up and down walking and it was so very hot I bet this summer it was really scorching. There wasn't a lot of shade. We bought the lunch the tour provided. That was a rip off. I am not certain what restaurant. The waitress snapped at someone at our table when they wanted a glass for water and a glass for wine, she said only 1! The amount of food was pretty skimpy I thought compared to those that were individual payers. The gelato was not gelato and like 2 spoonfuls. I don't drink alcohol, but those that did said the wine was terrible. So find another place to feed people. But those 5 little villages were incredible to see! I think our tour stopped at all but 1. It is a beautiful spot in the world. But on a hot day, there is no place to get away from the sun. I hope your website makes that clear especially to older folks. And of course the tourist needs to do some homework on their own as well. I really did enjoy the day trip in spite of the sun and the crowds. We tourists are loving some places to death, I am afraid! Cinque Terre is enchanting.

Sara did a great job but there were just too many people in the tour. This isn't her issue but it really made it hard to hear and I think we would have enjoyed ourselves more just doing the tour on our own.

Be prepared for a very long day. There will be a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. Each town is very crowded with steep cobbled streets. We were serenaded by a parade of local wineries and enjoyed the community involvement. Our group was very large, so be prepared to quickly maneuver through crowds, up and down stairs and load trains, boats, and buses quickly. It is extremely hot and humid so be prepared. Some guides are more attentive to the location of their guests than others. I wish ours had been.

You are picked up and transported to another world without having to plan anything. Price includes all transportation. A great way to see and experience the beautiful villages of the Cinque Terre in one day including by boat.
