Full description

Once you arrive at the port of La Spezia, meet your tour guide at the cruise terminal. Take a 20-minute walk to arrive at the train station from where you will begin your adventure. On the walk, you will discover the beautiful city center of La Spezia. Trains are undoubtedly the ideal means of transportation to explore the area, in just 15 minutes, passing through the sheer heights of the Ligurian Sea, you will reach Vernazza, one of the most colorful villages in the area.

Here you can enjoy some free time in this picturesque village, characterized by pastel-colored houses with beautiful views of crystal clear waters. The second stop will be Monterosso, the largest of the Cinque Terre villages, which also owns a stunning beach characterized by fine white sand and a clear and transparent sea. Here you will have a surprise reserved for you, a stop to taste the delicious Limoncino in a traditional shop.

This exquisite liqueur is ideal to toast for the wonderful day that you are spending, immersed in the nature, colors, and flavors of this fascinating and unique land. After having some free time in Monterosso, take the train to Riomaggiore, the last stop before coming back to La Spezia.

This small village, like the other four, offers breathtaking views of the coast, as well as glimpses of the daily lives of the fishermen with their traditional boats that you will see tied to the port. Also, if you are staying at La Spezia, choose the best starting point for you: the cruise port or the train station.

    This was absolutely amazing. The tour was so perfect because your train tickets were taken care of so you could skip the long line, you knew where to get on and off, and when you did get off you heard a small history of the town and certain buildings then you had ample time to explore the villages on your own. My tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and so sweet and helpful, I loved her. You could tell she loved her job. And the limonccino tasting was great because it’s a unique experience.

    The tour was well organized. Everything went well from one place to another with trains. Sufficient free time everywhere. Good tips on what you can/should look at, where the best ice cream is, the tastiest foccacia.. Tickets sent via WhatsApp to be able to travel back individually, telephone. NO. obtained from the guide for emergencies. Sufficient in time and easy to manage, it doesn't always have to be the big city tour, we found the 3 small places very nice. Only the weather could have been a little better/warmer.

    If you are familiar with public transportation, you probably don't need this tour, as the train system is very simple and efficient. Despite that, we do not regret taking this tour. Sonia was patient and gave us good information about the different cities. The Limoncino tasting is unnecessary in my opinion. We had an hour in Riomaggiore, 2 hours in Monterosso and an hour in Vernazza and I thought it was plenty of time to explore, takes some photos and grab some food.
