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 January 2017

I give this tour 5 stars. It really was a small group of 6, one was a no show so there were just my family of 3 and a nice couple from Virginia more like a private tour! Our guide was very nice and helpful with his litte tips and trivia during a very pleasant drive. He arranged a restaurant reservation in Vernazza which turned out to be lovely little place with excellent food! Cinque Terre is beautiful! I would definitely recommend this tour.

This tour is fantastic. The Cinque Terre coast is exactly as it looks in the photos. So colourful and stunning. We drove to the first town, Manarola and then caught a train to Vernazza where we could wander and grab some lunch. Most of the shops were closed at this tme of year which was disappointing. Our host then picked us up and drove us to the 3rd town, Corniglia. Overall it was a fabulous day.

The tour guide, whose name escapes me right now, was amazing. He did a good job keeping us organized, informed and entertained. We learned a lot about the Tuscany area along with Cinque Terre villages. Highly recommend it!

The tour was really wonderful and though the weather was as it should be in November, due to our guide it was not only very informative but also safe. The autumn tour is very good because there are no crouds of tourists everywhere and one can get very personal experience when walking up and down small picturesque streets of the towns.
HIghly recommended!

Jonathan was the perfect driver and guide. Took us to three of the five villages of Cinque Terre. And gave us the train tickets too. Very beautiful day to tour Cinque Terre. Definitely recommending this tour!

We met our guide early in the morning. He took us to 5 Terre in a nice van and got us situated on the train because the boats were not running due to high seas. We visited 3 of the 5 towns and had a great time. Learned a lot and were with a very nice group of people. Would do it again next time we are in Florence if the weather is better.

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.
