Beautiful Place to visit

The trip to Cinque Terre was one of the highlights of my trip! It was a beautiful place and the trip was well organized. It was too difficult to organize it on my own and visit all the villages. So I recommend that if you have a day to spend it is definitely worth enjoying this place.

This tour with Paola was fabulous. She was a terrific guide and Cinque Terre was even amazing with a little rain. It’s a magical place. Lunch (and gelato!) was delicious and fun. Ferry ride wasn’t running this time of year which was disappointing, but understandable. Overall, A+!

A wonderful place.

It is an unparalleled tour, in just one day they show you everything, you use train and boat, you have the chance to taste the culinary delight, buy souvenirs and travel the streets of these beautiful villages.

I loved it, the only thing that disappointed me was that the boat activity was not done. Although it is low season, if the weather allows it like the day we were, it should be done.

Great trip! Free time everywhere. Booked lunch very recommendable. Nice place, very good food :)
