Full description

Join an adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cinque Terre. Explore these 5 secluded villages built onto seaside cliffs, connected to one another only by paths, boats, or trains. Your trip begins early in the morning when you’ll meet your guide in Florence to begin the picturesque drive to the first village. Along the way, your guide will give you a thorough introduction to the region. After you arrive, the rest of the day’s activities are up to you. With the whole day free, it’s up to you as to where you go or how you spend your time. Take a scenic boat or train transfers to the 4 other villages of Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare, and Corniglia. Wander the cobblestone streets and marvel at the closely-packed, pastel-colored houses rising up from the coast. Head down to one of the many stunning beaches for white sand and crystal clear waters. Or enjoy a leisurely Italian lunch, overlooking the dramatic cliffs. After a full day hopping between the charming villages, you’ll board the bus for the journey back to Florence.

      Very good excursion to the Cinque Terre. Our guides, Elizabetha and Francesco, were very kind and fun. They spoke French very well. The program and schedules were perfectly respected in a good mood. However, we would have preferred to have less free time in Vernazza which did not give us more time at all, and more time in Riomaggiore.

      Ravie de ma journée.

      Nous avons eu 40 minutes de retard pour attendre le fils d'une dame. Ce retard n'a pas été repris en fin de journée. Nous avons dû rebrousser chemin pour aller chercher 3 personnes qui avaient un train à prendre pour Rome car l'autre autobus est tombé en panne. Notre guide ne parlait pas tellement bien le français. Nous avons bien failli manquer le train car ses explications pour le point de rencontre n'étaient pas claires. Nous avons eu peu de temps dans chacun des villages, surtout le dernier.

      Impeccable organization Small downside: maybe we should visit only 3 villages out of 5 in order to have more free time and take full advantage of the trails and the magnificent view in these villages .... too bad
