Loved this tour. You have walk a lot and take lots of trains and climb steps. Also went on one of the hottest days. Despite that it was absolutely lovely and really enjoyed the aspect of being able to sit back and enjoy someone else's organized tour. Always book with Viator and love their tours!

one of the best day trips for me - despite the loooong coach ride, i was simply blown away by the scenic autumn sights especially when we were approaching La Spezia. totally charmed by the centuries-old seaside villages along the rugged Italian Riviera coastline, fronted by colorful houses and vineyards on the steep terraces. we visited the village of Manarola, then took a train ride to Monterosso, where we had lunch before hopping on a ferry ride back with a fantastic sunset view to boot! Cinque Terre is simply breathtaking - definitely a must-visit when in Italy. one item in my bucket list checked! :-

Great trip to 3 of the best towns. The bus was the smaller and older type so it seemed like a sauna often at the back of the bus but overall the trip was great.

Enjoyed a tour of Mount St. Michell and St Marlo with our expert guide who we were delighted to travel with. Expert knowledge and driving and the nicest person as well. Her interest was entirely in us getting the most possible enjoyment out of the day which we did. It was one of the best experiences of our entire trip.
