Full description
Depart Florence in the early morning with your guide and head to the charming town of Manarola. Fall in love with the town’s pastel colored houses that line the Liguirian Sea and feel welcomed by the friendly locals going about their day. From here, begin the hike through the Cinque Terra National Park, which has been specifically routed to embrace the landscapes that characterize this fascinating region.

As you hike, admire the glistening sea on one side and the rolling countryside on the other, bursting with colorful vineyards. Once you reach the summit of the hike, begin the descent to Corniglia, a rustic town perched on a hill without direct access to the sea. Spend some time relaxing in Corniglia to recharge your energy for the rest of the day’s hike. Wander through the town’s narrow and winding streets, broken up by small squares that ooze timeless beauty.

After a short train ride arrive at Vernazza, a stunning bay town with a small but vibrant port. Explore the colorful streets of the town and immerse yourself in la dolce vita. The last stop of the day is a visit to Riomaggiore, a beautiful village characterized by brightly colored houses that appear to sit on top of one another set against a backdrop of imposing cliffs that sink into the cobalt sea. After a full-day of exploring, return to the hustle and bustle of Florence in the late afternoon.
