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.
