Florence: Cinque Terre Day Trip with Optional Hike and Lunch

1. Florence: Cinque Terre Day Trip with Optional Hike and Lunch

Get a taste of 'la dolce vita' on this jam-packed tour to the Cinque Terre, a collection of quintessential Italian towns dotted along the coast of Tuscany. After meeting your guide in central Florence, listen to an insightful introduction about the Cinque Terre on the 2-hour bus journey to La Spezia. After a quick bathroom break, board the first train of the day. Arrive in Manarola, the first of the Cinque Terre villages you will visit. Here you will join a small guided walk through the vines, and then enjoy some free time to explore at your own pace. Next, take the train to Corniglia. Climb the steps to reach the center of this quaint village and take some time to wander around. If you have selected the add-on, sit down at a local restaurant with a beautiful terrace and sea views. Tuck into a lunch of fresh fish for your 'primo' and homemade pesto pasta for your ‘secondo’. Then, choose to either go on an adventurous guided hike from Corniglia to Vernazza, or if you prefer to take it easy, follow your guide and take a train instead. Once in Vernazza, sit at one of the local cafés, or take a refreshing dip in the sea. Next, board a train to Monterosso, the village renowned for its beautiful beaches and artisan shops. If the weather allows it, you will then board a boat to navigate along the coast of the Cinque Terre. Arrive in Riomaggiore, an ancient fishing village and the most southern of the 5 villages. After exploring this last village, board the train back to La Spezia and then take the coach back to Florence.

Superb excursion despite overcast weather. Very well organized. The guides were very friendly Very pleasant to be at the seaside the little hike allowed us to admire the nature, orange trees, lemon trees, olive trees… and the superb landscapes. A superb break from the city for a day.

My husband and I very much enjoyed the day trip. Chris, our tour guide, was very fun and knowledgeable. He is very nice and accommodating to everyone. Expectations are set at the start of the trip and made it easier for everyone to enjoy the tour. Glad we did it!!

We had a fantastic experience traveling to Cinque Terre with our guides Chris and Manolo. They were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed every second of our trip. I highly recommend booking with them and doing the Cinque Terre tour!

Well planned programme. Both Chris & Gabriel were careful on the time planning to ensure that all participants are attended to.
