Discover the scenic coast and brightly colored villages of Cinque Terre on an 11-hour tour from Lucca. Marvel at houses suspended over cliffs, and swim in crystal clear waters. Stop for lunch in Monterosso in the Cinque Terre National Park.
What to Expect
Discover the dramatic coastline and brightly painted houses of the Cinque Terre villages on the Ligurian coast on a full-day coach tour from Lucca. Enjoy the services of a guide in your selected language, and marvel at the tumble-down houses of Manarola, Monterosso, and other settlements.
Following your transfer to the Cinque Terre region, travel through Cinque Terre National Park by train. Ride the historic railway to Manarola to discover an urban jewel characterized by its Genoese style case-torri (“tower houses”). Continue to Vernazza, overseen by the remains of a medieval castle. Stroll the narrow streets of Riomaggiore, famous for its wines and the Via dell'Amore hiking path that connects it to Manarola.
Then, visit the “Pearl of Cinque Terre” at Monterosso, an ancient fishing village with lovely beaches and lush vegetation on its rocks. Relax over lunch, and enjoy a limoncino ligure tasting in a quaint wine shop, before some free time to swim or walk round the village.
