What You Can Expect

Cinque Terre Day Trip from Milan

Explore the stunning Cinque Terre coastal region on a day trip from Milan

Join your guide in central Milan for this Cinque Terre Day Trip from the city. Board a comfortable air-conditioned coach bus, and enjoy time to relax and unwind as you take in the stunning scenery outside your window. 

Travel to the Gulf of the Powers (Golfo dei Poeti) on the Italian Riviera and make your way to the village of Portovenere, on the Ligurian Coast. Listen in as your guide shares interesting facts, history and highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the iconic Cinque Terre. Discover new information about the five distinct villages that make up this coastal destination that’s stationed on the Mediterranean Sea.

You’ll have the chance to hop aboard a local boat and head out to see where you’ll journey to Monterosso al Mare, the largest of Cinque Terre’s five villages. Upon arrival, you’ll have plenty of free time to explore the pedestrian tunnel, cafes, beaches and picture-perfect squares on your own. Enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the numerous local restaurants. 

After spending time here, you’ll head with your guide to another of Cinque Terre’s villages called Vernazza aboard a local train. You’ll have time once again to explore at your leisure. Wander the quiet harbor, meander the cobbled street of Via Roma and stop in to one of the historic churches here.

When your time in Vernazza draws to a close, join your guide and travel by scenic train to the town of La Spezia, where you’ll hop aboard your comfortable coach and return to Milan. Bid farewell to your guide and fellow travelers here, as your Cinque Terre tour ends and your Milan evening begins.

Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The guide pointed out landmarks on the drive down and was very knowledgable about the area. We had ample time in several villages and the guide reserved space at a wonderful restaurant for lunch. This was my third tour with Viator and I have not been disappointed.

Lovely trip, my daughter and I absolutely loved Cinque Terre. As with the other tours we wish we had time to stay a few days, but at least we can say we were there.

Long day but worth every minute! The bus lets you off above Manarola and it is a steep walk down wear comfortable shoes! It was fun to take the train to Monterossa and then a boat back. Be sure to get to the boat early to get a seat on the coast side for the views! A great way to see the area if you dont have much time. A dream fulfilled!

Sonia and her partner did a great job herding us around Cinque Terre. The bus ride was comfortable and the information was invaluable. Sonia made sure we got the best views for picture taking. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see the beautiful villages.
