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!

It was a lovely experience with Gabriel as our host tasting 3 wines. Each wine was served with excellent snacks, salad with anchovies, bruschetta with pesto, followed by cheeses and fig jam and onion jam. The wines were great but the best part was Gabriel talking about his grandfather who started making wine and opened the cantina. It was a fun hour. Some generous pours and a grandson who appreciated the work of his grandfather.

We initially toured the cellar and the exterior of the estate. Very prepared guide. Tasting of excellent wines, you can choose from a variety of choices

Tour of the cellar with a very interesting guide and a very knowledgeable girl. Great tasting and very passionate staff. Strongly recommended!
