  • From Florence: Seaside Beauty Day Trip to Cinque Terre

    2. From Florence: Seaside Beauty Day Trip to Cinque Terre

    Cinque Terre 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 will give you an unforgettable and fun introduction to this coastal gem. Begin your tour of these UNESCO sites at daybreak with your arrival in La Spezia. Board a train to Riomaggiore, a quaint medieval town dating to the 13th century. Marvel at the winding streets of this village and its charming houses leaning one against the other.

Finally, take a boat across to Vernazza, whose natural port has kept it safe from invaders for centuries.

    The tour guides were AMAZING!!! The bus ride and boat ride were great. I would've preferred 3 out of 5 villages with a little longer at each village with a less hectic rush to the transport. And to know in advance to bring enough euro to pay for a spot on the beach. There was no free spot to sit or change our clothes so we didn't get to swim as planned.

Fully loaded day! Do note, this is a tour is in a large group (~30 people), but this caused no problem - easy to hear guide, great to meet like minded people too. Emmanuel and Mano were our guides for the day - entertaining, insightful and very helpful. Highly recommend having the meal (~15 euro each), some of the best food we had. The views all along the hike are stunning - you can go at your own pace, there’s no rush, so we do recommend this A fantastic (busy) day, and a memory we will treasure

It was a very long day but so worth every minute. We were able to see so much in one day yet did not feel rushed at all. Alessandro and Chris made the day, best tour guides ever! We liked our first trip with them so much, we sought them out for second day of touring.

I would recommend this tour to everyone. Such a great experience and value for money. Brilliantly lead by our Tour guides Manolo. Don’t think twice, trust me, it will be worth your time.

Manolo and Gabrial were amazing . They gave good recommendations too. I am a vegetarian and did not find any issues with food too. Quite informative trip.

It was a great day packed with activities…and the tour guide was wonderful!!
