    Spend a day getting to know the enchanting region of Cinque Terre. You'll visit 4 villages in total, suspended between sea and land, seemingly hanging from sheer cliffs and surrounded by hills and vineyards.

Go swimming in the crystal-clear sea and enjoy a traditional light lunch.

    3. Cinque Terre from Florence

    Depart Florence and relax on the scenic journey to Manarola in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cinque Terre. Marvel at the typical case-torri houses on arrival, and then continue to Vernazza, overlooked by the remains of a medieval castle. Get some free time to explore the village at your own pace. Next, discover the Pearl of Cinque Terre at the ancient fishing village of Monterosso, known for its lovely beaches and lush vegetation. Take an optional swim off a sandy beach, before crossing to Riomaggiore by boat. Admire the colorful Cinque Terre villages from the water. Use your free time in Riomaggiore to explore the historic town center at your own pace, and visit the church of Peter the Apostle on the rocky promontory. Continue by train to La Spezia, where a bus will be waiting to take you back to Florence.

    Cinque Terre was simply mesmerizing. The guide on the way there was both driving and talking (not as loud), and was a bit harder to understand, but as the tour proceeded he showed up to be quite caring and respectful of the group pace and speed. Also quite friendly and never hesitated to explain anything at his reach. Really enjoyed it. Only part I didn't like was on the way back, had to climb the hill to the van by foot, under the heavy sun and sweating like crazy, but I understand that it was somewhat necessary.

4.0 / 5

The COVID context has its advantages such as being able to visit this kind of place with very few simultaneous visitors. There were 4 of us in a minibus to do this tour, whereas it is usually done in a bus of 60 people. On site, ditto, very few people. These villages are beautiful and the tour very pleasant and friendly thanks to Francesco our driver and guide. At each stop, we have a set time, usually 1 hour or even a little more to take a tour on our own. This is enough and it is the kind of ideal tour when you want to optimize a short stay (4/5 days) in Florence and its region. The minibus is parked at the first stop, then we take the train (ticket included in the tour) to the following villages and return to the starting point by ferry (ticket also included in the tour). We have very fond memories of it.
