Arrive in the famed region of the 'five lands,' comprising five fishing villages tacked into the Riviera’s dramatic sea cliffs. Explore Manarola first, said to be one of the oldest villages of the Cinque Terre, with free time to walk around the brightly-colored buildings.
Afterward, take the train north to Vernazza, known for its terraced hillsides and wine production. Take some time to wander the area before climbing aboard a sightseeing boat to Monterosso. Enjoy a complimentary lunch at a seaside trattoria, overlooking views of the bay. Then head to the beach for a swim or peruse the local shops independently before heading to Riomaggiore with your group.
Dating back to the 13th century, Riomaggiore is often considered the true jewel of the Cinque Terre, with its brightly-hued houses and private beaches. Enjoy a guided walking tour with your guide, before traveling back to Siena.
We used this tour to take us to our next stay Monterosso and did not take the bus back to Siena. The Cinque Terre was a favorite destination by all in our traveling party. The little towns were quite busy during the day, so we appreciated being there at night to explore. Monterosso's beaches were heavenly, and the food options were plenty! There was music at night in the square and lots of quaint shops. Our guide was very good, and extremely helpful. Be advised that it is a quite popular tour and when joining in from Siena, you take a small van to meet the bus at a designated location. All of the seats were sold on our tour, so when we met up with the bus, we were the last to board I think the tour originates in Florence so we were split up.
Such a beautiful trip. So glad we didn't miss it.
Exceptional tour and guide and drivers. It was tough initially climbing all those stairs, but then it just got better. We were all so impressed! The boat rides were refreshing!
We loved visiting Cinque Terra. It truly is a wonder to see and our tour guide, Francesca certainly added to our experience with her knowledge and friendly attitude.
I enjoyed my one day tour of the Cinque Terre. All the staff were helpful. Transportation was smooth and efficient. And all in all it was a great day. Of course this area deserves much longer than one day - but if thats all the time you've got - this tour gives a great introduction.
This was an awesome day trip!
This tour was amazing!
So worth the money!
We booked the tour out of Siena. We were picked up from Piazza Gramsci at the appointed time and driven to Florence to meet the other travelers. The tour guide was very informative, helpful and pleasant. Cinque Terre is a must even if it's for a day and Viator is well organized n is great value for $. Our return from Florence-Rome was just as hassle free.
The tour was amazing. It was fast paced as we visited four of the villages in one day. There was confusion about transportation from Sienna to Florence. No one was at the bus station to pick us up. But a driver was dispatched immediately after we called the Viator number. We had a wonderful day!
