The Perfect Day!
Semi Private Cinque Terre and Pisa Leaning Tower Tour from Florence | Oct 2019
This is the perfect day trip to Cinque Terre from Florence. Our driver, Leonardo, was amazing! He was waiting for us when we arrived at our meeting point. The Mercedes van was very comfortable for all of us- 7 in total. He handled all the arrangements and escorted us on the train. We then chose to do the hike from Monterosso to Vernazza- it took us about 1 1/2 hours- but it was so worth it! To be honest, there are a lot of stairs going up, but you can stop at any time and take a break. The views from the trail are breathtaking! We then had lunch in Verrnazza and then met back up with Leonardo at our specified time. We then were lucky enough with the weather to take the ferry boat back to where we started. If the seas are to rough, the boats don't operate so you just take the train bak instead. You get to visit three of the five towns, but we got to see all five from the boat. On our way back to Florence, we were able to stop to see the leaning tower in Pisa. It is well worth the stop to see it! We were all taken back. We were there for about 45mins., but did not go up the tower. I think the most fun, is taking pictures at the tower. Everyone is snapping pictures like they are holding up the tower! Leonardo was a wealth of information and we so enjoyed all the history along the way. ...Read more
