Full description
Cinque Terre (5 Villages) is one of Italy's most enchanting destinations. Each of these unforgettable little cities will take your breath away with their gravity-defying dance above the azure waters. This day trip to these villages suspended on craggy cliffs will give you an unforgettable and fun introduction to this coastal gem. Begin your tour of these UNESCO sites at daybreak with arrival in La Spezia. Board a train to Riomaggiore, a quaint medieval town dating to the 13th century. The small winding streets of this village known for its wine greet you, and charming houses leaning one against the other as you continue your trek through the cobblestone streets. Next, head over to Manarola. Enjoy panoramic views, high above the sea, with lovely mountains and wilderness all around you. Continue on to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village considered the "pearl of the Cinque Terre." Relax on its lovely beaches and jump into the refreshing crystalline waters. Take a boat across to Vernazza, whose natural port has kept it safe from invaders for centuries.

      i had so much fun! the host (his name started with a C but i cant quite remember) was amazing. a great way to see cinque terre: HOWEVER, the only downside is that the itinerary was not accurate to what we did, we only spent 5 or 10 minutes on the boat, and we went to the villages in kind of an odd order. however super fun, just dont do this for the boat ride!

      Really enjoyed this trip, each of the villages were beautiful. You get about 1 hour in each of the villages, maybe a bit more in 1 of them to have a some food and a swim. The trip is well planned out (if the trains are on time). The tour guide was brilliant and gave a bit of information about each village as we arrived there. The boat trip was good but a bit bumpy but fantastic views on the boat. It was especially nice as the villages were a lot less crowded than usual due to the pandemic. Would definitely recommend this trip as a way to see Cinque Terre in 1 day.

      If you want to discover the Cinq Terre for the first time, this trip is perfect. We just found that the free time between the 4 lands that we were able to discover is short. Useless for us who had the lunch formula to take it, it is too fast, badly presented and we do not ask you the choice of ice cream for dessert. The starter, however, was an assortment of seafood salad, the dish uninteresting pesto pasta with potatoes, and the dessert a not fresh fruit salad with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A large pitcher of wine and 1 bottle of water. The excursion was very good I recommend.
