What You Can Expect

Cinque Terre Semi-Private Day Trip from Florence

Explore the gorgeous Cinque Terre on a day trip from Florence!

Meet your guide and small tour group of 8 people or fewer at the Piazza della Repubblica in central Florence. Board a comfortable tour vehicle and depart for Cinque Terre, a collection of five postcard-perfect fishing hamlets that hug a rugged coastal stretch of the Italian Riviera.

Travel through Tuscany and into the Liguria region for your initial stop in the village of Manarola. Pause for fantastic photo ops of the coastline and the cerulean ocean beyond, then stroll through the narrow alleys and quaint squares of the town itself, one of the oldest in Cinque Terra. Sip a glass or two of the region's famous wines at a charming local wine bar (own expense). 

Departing Manarola, meet your tour escort at a prearranged location to board your boat to Vernazza. During your scenic boat journey, sit back and view the coast gliding by with rolling hills as the backdrop. 

Go ashore in Vernazza after cruising through the picturesque open harbor. Use your free time to walk around, visit the village's castle and church. Stop at one of the many waterfront restaurants for a traditional Italian lunch (own expense).

Following your time in Vernazza, climb into a tour vehicle for a drive through picturesque Corniglia before returning to your starting point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2018

This tour was just spectacular! Our tour guide Jonathon was amazing, super knowledgeable, friendly and fun. It is A LOT of walking down steep steps so I would recommend wearing sneakers or even hiking shoes. We only went to 3 out of the 5 fishing villages and that was ok. We did take a ferry ride from one village to another and the views were just breathtaking ! I cant even describe how beautiful the rock formation, the architecture and the sea combination was! You'll have to see it for yourselves! I almost booked a walking tour and thank goodness I didn't bc it is not easy to walk these streets! The people who did book that tour had full hiking gear on, boots, sticks, etc.

We stopped for gelato which was delicious and for some wine which was also great. Lunch was independent we couldn't decide on a restaurant so we purchased a bottle of wine, a gyro and pizza and had a picnic by the ocean on the sea wall as some people did and it was so romantic.

Would absolutely recommend this tour, we loved every minute of it!

This was one of the highlights of our whole trip! My husband and I had never been to Italy and after several people told us how beautiful Cinque Terre was we decided to book this tour (viator was also recommended by a friend of mine). Our guide Giacamo was very knowledgeable and I highly recommend

Yaris, our guide and driver, was very personable and made our tour very enjoyable. Our group was small, only three couples, and we visited Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Corneglia, and a small mountaintop village that had a gorgeous view. Between Riomaggiore and Vernazza we took a ferry. It was a calm day and the coastline views were spectacular. Yaris made reservations for us in Vernazza at Gambero Rosso restaurant, which was the only way we would have gotten a table outside with views of the harbor and village. The restaurant was packed with many people waiting but we had one of the best tables and walked right in. The best octopus I've ever eaten, and the fresh anchovy dishes were fantastic. All of the villages were beautiful. We went in April before the cruise ship season started so it was not that crowded although very busy. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Florence.

Our tour guide Leonardo was a delightful knowledgable young man. He took us to some wonderful lookouts for photos. We enjoyed each of the towns we visited and had a delicious lunch at a restaurant recommended by Leonardo. Highly recommend this trip

We had a lovely tour with only four in our group. Giacomo did a great job of showing us the highlights and allowed us free time to take in the views, shop and have lunch without feeling rushed. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Jonathon was great. We had an awesome tour to Cinque Terre! Jonathan was a great tour guide. Very informative, but didn’t just talk to talk. Sometimes you get guides that just talk non stop but don’t really say anything. He was very informative, but allowed you to enjoy the moment.
