Cinque Terre: Private Day Trip from Florence with Lunch

1. Cinque Terre: Private Day Trip from Florence with Lunch

Discover one of Italy’s most amazing destinations, the unforgettable Ligurian Coast of Cinque Terre, UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy scenic views of the 5 ingeniously constructed fishing villages on this private tour from Florence, accompanied by your own guide/sommelier. Cinque Terre was proclaimed as Italy's first national park in 1999. It is the smallest but also the densest national park in Italy. Between the villages, you will enjoy scenic train rides along the Ligurian coastline. A relaxing boat ride is also included between 2 of the villages so you can witness the stunning views of the Cinque Terre from the water. Wander the narrow streets, admire the colorful houses, or take the chance to swim in the turquoise water. Cinque Terre's rocky landscape has been tamed by winemakers who carved and cultivated the steep terraces facing the sea. It remains Italy's most difficult area to cultivate, due to unfriendly environmental conditions. Despite this, the area produces high-quality wines that reflect the traits of the territory: the salty whiff of minerality served as a reminder of the terraced vineyards on the Ligurian coast. Its wines are equally stunning: refreshing like a dip in the sea and scented like its exotic flora. Apart from sightseeing, this tour is centered around wine and food traditional to the area and distinct in its nature. Enjoy a multi-course lunch paired with the aromatic, mineral wine of Cinque Terre in a restaurant overlooking the Ligurian sea. Dive into traditional food and local specialties like focaccia, seafood dishes, and pasta with pesto, a sauce whose birthplace is the Ligurian region. Discover a paradise on the Italian Riviera where houses are suspended on steep cliffs and the crystal clear waters of the Ligurian Sea invite you in for a swim!

What people are saying about Vernazza

Our guide Angel was terrific! He let us explore as well as giving us great facts about things. I would recommend this to anyone. We saw all the cities except the one on top but could have hiked to it if we wanted to. We chose the lunch options and was it delicious! From the wine to the dessert and espresso. First class! This is one I would do again.

The food tour with Beatrice was a great experience. It was very personal and cordial. We learned a lot about La Spezia and the region and everything related to the topic of "food". The food was consistently delicious... Overall, absolutely recommendable... Thank you Beatrice!

Sofia was a great guide, we were able to taste 5 typical dishes from Spezia and Liguria. Sofia knew a lot of things and perfectly perfectly French! A delight...

Béatrice was a fantastic host, she spoke French very well and was attentive. However, we were a little disappointed with the last fish restaurant. I recommend.

The tour was great and Daniela was an excellent tour guide. She was very personable and friendly.
