  • Spectacular views from the water as you cruise along the Cinque Terre
  • Free time to explore Manarola, Vernazza, and Corniglia
  • Small group for a personalized tour
  • Convenient round-trip transport from Florence
What to Expect
Travel by air-conditioned minivan from Florence to the coast, driving through the scenic countryside of Tuscany and the Liguria region. The first stop of the day is in Manarola, where you’ll have free time to stroll the historic streets, take in the ocean views, or sample some regional wines at a local wine bar (own expense). Meet back up with your guide and travel to Vernazza by boat, gliding beneath the dramatic sea cliffs of the Cinque Terre. On arrival, explore Vernazza at your own pace, perhaps visiting its medieval sea tower, or enjoying a typical Italian lunch (own expense) at one of the seafront restaurants. Make a final stop in Corniglia, a village perched high in the hills of Liguria, before setting out on the return journey to Florence.

Dear Client Thank you for your feedback. I understand that overall the tour was fabulous and you enjoyed exploring the stunning area of Cinque Terre on our small group tour. The itinerary has been optimized to feature the most interesting of the villages considering also the distance from Florence and the various ages of our participants. The are can be pretty busy and crowded and peak season months of tourism - now in lower season you can enjoy exploring the locations without the crowds. Local businesses may sometimes be open seasonally or opt for taking a holiday at some time during the less busy season but this is not something we have control over. From what I can see you had a nice time on our tour - thank you for joining! Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept
