Full description
Join an adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cinque Terre. Explore these 5 secluded villages built onto seaside cliffs, connected to one another only by paths, boats or trains. Your trip begins early in the morning, when you’ll meet your guide in Florence to begin the scenic drive to the first village. Along the way, your guide will give you a thorough introduction to the region. After you arrive, the rest of the day’s activities are up to you. With the whole day free, it’s up to you as to where you go or how you spend your time. The 4 other villages, Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare, and Corniglia, are all easily accessible by boat or train. Wander the cobblestone streets and marvel at the closely-packed, pastel-colored houses rising up from the coast. Head down to one of the many stunning beaches for white sand and crystal clear waters. Or enjoy a leisurely Italian lunch, overlooking the dramatic cliffs. After a full day hopping between the picturesque villages, you’ll board the bus for the journey back to Florence.

    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.

    We had an amazing experience with get your guide on this day trip. They covered 4 villages and each one better than the previous one. The best one was monteresso in which they gave us maximum time to relax by the beach and have sea side lunch. The guides marco and julliano managed the whole group very well by giving us proper instructions of which train to board and where to meet. They also did headcount of the group whenever changing mode of transport so that no one is left out. The bus was also very comfortable. Our italy vacation would not have been so amazing without this tour to cinque terre. Totally 5 stars for this trip from get your guide.

    After our tour the day before with “My Tours” the Cinque Terre tour with Ciao Florence Tours and Travel was disorganized and unprofessional. The tour guide did not display her certification credentials. She did not have a microphone so that we could all hear her. There were times we lost track of her in the crowds. The flag was not displayed high enough for all to see, there was not a colleague following to insure no one was left behind and people were left behind.
