Full description
After departing Florence at 8:00 AM you will arrive high above the Cinque Terre village of Manarola, where you will enter the National Park to hike to Corniglia. At the cliff top village of Corniglia, after the panoramic walk you have free time to relax and take-in the perfect view of the sea and surrounding hillside.

After Corniglia, you'll continue towards the village of Vernazza, one of the prettiest and most characteristic of the towns. Here you'll have free time to sit in one of the cheerful bars and cafés, or even have a cooling swim in the sea.

Continue the visit with a short train ride to Monterosso, the village renowned for its beautiful beach and artisan shops. Enjoy free time to taste the local wine, a refreshing swim in the sea or souvenir shopping. A boat ride (weather permitting) along the coast takes you to Riomaggiore, where we finish the walk along the famous path of Via dell'Amore, “Lover's Lane”, a walkway hanging above the sea.

  • Transport between Florence and Cinque Terre by coach plus all other transport for the day
