What You Can Expect

Cinque Terre and Portovenere Day Trip from Siena

Enjoy a walk in the street of Manarola Village!

Meet your guide in Piazza Gramsci in central Siena, where you'll hop aboard your coach and travel to Portovenere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy free time to explore the village on your own, checking out the castle or ancient churches of San Lorenzo and San Pietro. Then travel through Cinque Terre National Park to Cinque Terre.

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. After some free time for lunch (own expense), taste the local limoncino ligure in a quaint wine shop. Then head to the beach for a swim or peruse the local shops independently.

Your tour will conclude with transportation back to Siena.

it was so exciting to take a bus, then a boat then a train to visit these amazing 5 towns. Its a long day with walking but the views and the shops make it extra special.

Long day, but a good way to see the towns of the Cinque Terre.

This was a very long day but a worthwhile one. We really wanted to see this part of Italy and the tour was the best way for us to do it and to cover a lot of ground. Our guide did a very good job of managing a large group. We enjoyed the visit very much and were glad we went. There was a traffic snafu on the reurn trip which made a long day even longer, but that was not a fault of the driver. Over all, I would certainly recommend the trip. Just be aware that you will be on the go gor 14-15 hours.

A full day with only short stops at the destinations. Enjoyed the experience but would have loved having more time in the villages.

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.

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!
