    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Cinque Terre Trails, Riomaggiore to Monterroso Italy

    Cinque Terre are five coastal villages in eastern Liguria that make up a UNESCO World Heritage site! Here, a train links the five different villages together.

    A small group tour with a max of 8 people is the perfect solution for those who want to keep the costs down and at the same time touch as many destinations as possible without being in a 54-seat bus.

    Your driver will be with you for the entire day. He will escort you on the boat, trail and train. - Public boats operate subject to weather conditions and along the Cinque Terre from April until about the 3rd week of October.

    Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Borgo Storico di Manarola, Manarola Italy

    Arrive at Manarola by black mercedes minivan and from there you will take the boat to Monterosso al Mare.Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. The local dialect is Manarolese, which is marginally different from the dialects in the nearby area. The name "Manarola" is probably a dialectical evolution of the Latin, "magna rota". In the Manarolese dialect this was changed to "magna roea" which means "large wheel", in reference to the mill wheel in the town.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Biblioteca Civica, Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi, 17, 19016 Monterosso al Mare SP, Italy

    Monterosso al Mare, a small village with a population of about 1500 soul, this is the largest village! Stone steps link the village center to the port and seaside promenade. Monterosso al Mare is surrounded by hills bedecked in vineyards and olive groves. Thursday is market day: displaying local arts and crafts, food, and wine. Be sure to see the Twelfth Century Church of St. Francis, built in the Ligurian Gothic style, which includes black and white marbles.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Footpath Monterosso - Vernazza, 19016 Monterosso al Mare Italy

    From Monterosso al Mare you can hike to Vernazza (120 minutes), or take the train instead enjoying just a 5 minutes ride. To hike in the footpath there is a tickets to pay on your own onsite. If you decide to hike you will have just 10 minutes to spend in Monterosso al Mare.

    These ancient trails are rough but manageable. Be prepared for the hiking – although the path is open to everyone, remember that the ground can be slippery, uneven, and in places steep and narrow. The charm of the area is that it is natural and unspoiled; do not expect handrails or safety rails when steps are steep or when the path is close to the cliff edge. The driver will follow the small group by train.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: 19018 Vernazza Italy

    Vernazza is the only natural port of the five villages. Being the wealthiest village its architecture is most elaborate. See the Castle of the Doria, look at the watchtowers, and do not miss the Romanesque sanctuary of Our Lady of Reggio. You will be amazed by its simplicity and yet fascinated by its architecture.

    In Vernazza we can have a cooling swim in the sea, a nice shower and we can enjoy a delicious lunch made of uthentic Pesto Pasta and fresh Mediterrean seafood (not included in the price).

    Train from Vernazza to Manarola and back on the Black Mercedes minivan on the way to Florence with a quick stop to see Pisa Leaning tower.

    - Public boats operate subject to weather conditions and along the Cinque Terre from April until about the 3rd week of October.
