Full description
Depart La Spezia and journey through the beautiful countryside of Liguria to explore the 5 fishing villages of Cinque Terre at your own pace. Benefit from a flexible itinerary to see the sites that you prefer aboard the Cinque Terre Express train.

Marvel at the jumble of colored houses built on cliffs that line the Ligurian coast. Dating back to the early Middle Ages, the villages are now free of traffic to protect their cultural and historical integrity. The oldest, Monterosso, was founded in 643 AD, whilst Riomaggiore was established in the 8th century by Greek settlers fleeing persecution in Byzantium.

Choose which of the villages you would like to visit, including Vernazza, Corniglia and Manarola. Much of what remains today dates from the late High Middle Ages. Discover ancient castles, parish churches and much more at your leisure.
