More Tour Details

Set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet, the Cinque Terre is a combination of five ingeniously constructed fishing villages. A Unesco World Heritage site since 1997, they look very much like a version of a seafront garden of Eden!

Travel in full comfort aboard a comfortable minivan and settle back to admire the scenery - sinuous paths running across stunning cliffsides and a 19th-century railway line cut through a series of coastal tunnels that ferries the footsore from village to village.  Learn all about the Cinque Terre's history and unique features from your guide: the steeply terraced cliffs bisected by a complicated system of fields and gardens hacked, chiseled, shaped and layered over the course of nearly two millennia. So marked are these artificial contours that some scholars have compared the extensive "muretti" (low stone walls) to the Great Wall of China! And the region is enhanced by the charming villages - Riomaggiore, founded in the 8th century by Greek settlers fleeing persecution in Byzantium, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Monterosso - which look onto the gleaming pristine waters of the sea.  Lose yourself in the gorgeous scenery, hike/walk along the famous trails (including - when available -  the Via dell'Amore) and explore a few of the fascinating villages traveling by boat, train and on foot.

Crown your day with a memorable typical Ligurian seafood feast and exquisite regional white wines, in a lovely seafront restaurant.

Learn about the area's one-of-a-kind grape harvesting techniques enjoying an exclusive leisurely hike through luxuriant seafront vineyards: nobody in sight apart from the deep blue sea, verdant vines, your group and guide.

Weather and sea conditions permitting you will also admire the scenario from the water during a fabulous cruise.

Escape the maddening crowds, roam the coast, discover paradise on earth on this fabulous Cinque Terre tour from Florence!
