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.

Giacomo, our tour director, was highly professional, polite, and made his best to show to our group of 8 friends this charming land of Cinque Terre. And he did it!
For my wife and me it was the second time to visit this area and we enjoyed even more.
We highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky you will get Giacomo.

A maximum of 8 people. They had a lot of people but simply ran a lot of vans so we were always with a small group. The scenery was wonderful, and not to be missed. Just right. Left and returned on time indeed our driver then drove us to our hotel as a favor, thus saving a cab ride or a 10 minute walk. Please take this it is worth it.

BRILLANT day!!! Tour guide was excellent and we learnt so much on our drive there and back from Florence. Definitely worth the money to go in a small group of 8. Only did 3 villages but got the boat ride which was fantastic. Highly recommend this Tour
