Overview

Discover Pisa and the picturesque Cinque Terre on this day trip departing from Florence. Snap a photo with the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa before heading to the coast to see the seaside villages of the Italian Riviera. There, travel through the pink- and yellow-hued towns of the Cinque Terre, a World Heritage Site. Explore the beaches, try the local cuisine (own expense) and wander the charming cobblestone streets. This excursion is open to travelers between 18 and 45 years old, and includes your train transportation.
  • Full-day trip to Pisa and the Cinque Terre from Florence, with train transport included
  • See Pisa’s top sights, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Duomo, with free time at the Field of Dreams
  • Discover the UNESCO-listed Cinque Terre with an expert guide
  • Wander along Riomaggiore’s historical streets and admire the pastel buildings that lean against each other
  • Relax on the beach or cool off with a swim in Vernazza
Your trip will begin at the Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence, where you’ll meet your guide. Then hop aboard and enjoy the 1-hour train ride from Florence to Pisa.

Once there, head to Piazza dei Miracoli with your guide, where you’ll find the Duomo, the Baptistery and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Enjoy 1.5 hours to explore these top attractions independently.

Afterward, return to the train station to head toward La Spezia, switching trains toward Riomaggiore just over an hour later. Here you’ll enter the beloved Cinque Terre, comprising five villages along the Italian Riviera.

Hop off to stroll the charming streets with your guide. The buildings along each fishing village are brilliantly colored in pinks, yellows and blues and make a stunning backdrop for your photos.

Continue by train to the village of Manarola, which is rumored to have more grapevines than any other Cinque Terre town. Check out the harbor before heading to your final stop, the village of Vernazza. Here you can enjoy time to explore on your own, jumping into the waters of the Riviera or taking in some rays at the beach.

After a full day of exploration, travel back to Florence by train, where your tour concludes.

Beautiful seaside

Our guide Carlota was great - very friendly and helpful. The towns were beautiful and a highlight of our trip. A lot of shops were closed but we excpected that this time of year. Tour was as described and had time for everything even with a small train delay - even time to swim if it had been warmer !

Couldn't be more pleased with our trip; the perfect mix of assistance and independence! Eduardo handled all the transportation, guided us through the maze of stations and schedules and made sure had time to make all our connections. He was there to offer suggestions at each stop but let us explore on our own. Can't think of a better way to see these destinations in one very full day!

Good Experience

This is what I wanted and expected. We were guided to Pisa and three of the five villages of Cinque Terre. The guide provided some explanation of the site but we were left to explore on our own, which is what I wanted. Do not expect to be able to go into the tower of Pisa or other ticketed events because you will not have time due to the pace of the trip, about an hour at each stop. I do wish there was more communication from the tour company. Our guide was 45 minutes late to start the tour and we had no way to know what was going on because the office was closed at seven in the morning.

Nout a Tour but a Train Escort
SuccessWithinReach
, Aug 2019
I cannot begin to express how disappointed I was with this "tour." This was not led by a tour guide but by a person who leads you from train to train. No interesting information was given at each stop except for 3 minutes at Pisa. The sites were beautiful but I need to look them up online to see what made them special/unique. The escort told us that her boss was accompanying her to review her performance, although he spoke no English and did not help at all. At each stop, she was holding hands with him (I assume it was her boyfriend). I will say that they were both very nice and she would answer a question if one was asked. Cinque Terre and Pisa were beautiful. My suggestion would be that the tour operator be transparent and state that this is not a tour but someone to guide you to a train. If that expectation was set then all would be OK. I would also encourage the guide to be transparent and truthful. This was a complete disappointment.

Dear David, thank you for sharing your experience. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our tour and that you felt very disappointed with the experience. By reading your review my opinion is that you had a different expectation from what we actually promote. Your disappointment comes from the fact that the guide did not walk you around explaining in detail the site, but this is not what we sell. Under the description of the tour we clearly mention that this is not a guided tour with a guide following you throughout. Although, given prior notice, it's a service that we can organise. This is clearly evident in the positive reviews of this particular tour from our other customers. Our tour is led by a tour leader who shares with you cultural & historical infos of the whole area through speeches organised / spread during the day. We are a company for young backpackers and travellers on a budget and our philosophy is to show you the best destinations including Cinque Terre with locally trained guides without overloading you with unnecessary information. We are sure, if you asked your guide to provide more info, she would have been glad to do so. The Cinque Terre are five fishing villages is more celebrated for its beauty than its historical value so we hope that not being satisfied does not come from a different expectation of the area. For this reason we stand by the fact that we don't promote this tour as a guided tour with a guide but as a tour led by a tour leader (in Italy they are two different typology of guidance) and it's a mix of free time and guidance all of which is clearly stated in the description. We aplogize for the misunderstanding and we hope you will be able to join us again in the future as we have several types of tour for all tastes and needs. In the future we are happy to organise something more suitable to your needs.

Eduardo was a great guide and we really enjoyed our time with him! Really helpful! The trains were annoying as it felt longer to reach places but worth it to go to both Pisa and CT.

Worth it

This tour is definitely worth your while if you are on a tight schedule. Our tour guide Paula was amazing, so friendly she showed us where to eat, what drinks to try and what gelato was the best. We visited 3 of the villages and spent good hour or more at each one.

Rainy Pisa, Small Cinque Terre
isaaclausy
, Aug 2019
We have a good start in Firenza but it gets rainy in Pisa and some roads are flooded during our walk back to station. Cinque Terre are small and moderately quiet places worth a visit. While it is rather good in the pictures dont expect too much time in each village.

Amazing day

We were with Paula the whole day, our tour guide. She was great. The tour was just as expected. We went to Pisa and had time to our self. Then we went to Cinque terre. There you visit three towns. Paula gives good recommendations to what to expect and you have time on your own. She also gives advice on food. We however ate on our own. We had lots of fun taking pictures at Pisa and then dipped into the water when we went to Cinque terre. I think you can do this on your own. However it's hassle-free going with a guide and we felt it was worth it. We had to worry about nothing. Paula took care of us.
