Full description
Depart La Spezia and journey through the beautiful countryside of Liguria to explore the 5 fishing villages of Cinque Terre at your own pace. Benefit from a flexible itinerary to see the sites that you prefer aboard the Cinque Terre Express train. Marvel at the jumble of colored houses built on cliffs that line the Ligurian coast. Dating back to the early Middle Ages, the villages are now free of traffic to protect their cultural and historical integrity. The oldest, Monterosso, was founded in 643 AD, whilst Riomaggiore was established in the 8th century by Greek settlers fleeing persecution in Byzantium. Choose which of the villages you would like to visit, including Vernazza, Corniglia and Manarola. Much of what remains today dates from the late High Middle Ages. Discover ancient castles, parish churches and much more at your leisure.

Sandra was pleasant & knew the area well. Didn't learn about history.

This was a small private tour for our family of seven. The guide was easy to talk to and pleasant to spend six hours with. She knew Cinque Terre well and helped us get around to see many beautiful sites. We did not hear all that much about the history of the area (just some of the "high points"), and since we were a small group we did not use earphones/transmitter and so not all of our group heard what was said. Be aware that you may be told it is "customary" to buy the guide's train ticket (and possibly other tickets or meals) throughout the day.
