Best of Cinque Terre with Typical Lunch

Visit the stunning villages of the Cinque Terre in one day on this fantastic tour. Admire the colourful buildings hovering between the sky and the beautiful blue sea and enjoy a delicious lunch with picturesque views.

Meet your guide in central Florence and set off on an incredible journey between the picturesque villages of Cinque Terre by bus, boat, and train.

The Cinque Terre is a beautiful stretch of rugged coast and the only unspoilt part left of the lovely Italian Riviera. It takes its name from the five picturesque fishing villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Led by your knowledgeable guide, your first stop will be Manarola, the second smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns. From Manarola, you will board a boat (weather permitting) for a lovely ride over to Monterosso, which is renowned for its beautiful beach and small craftsmen’s shops.

Board a train bound for the stunning Vernazza, where you will have plenty of free time to explore or sit in one of the cheerful bars and cafés for refreshments (own expense).

Your adventure continues by train to Riomaggiore. Here, you can work up an appetite by swimming in the ocean or exploring the picturesque shops before sitting down for a traditional Italian lunch with perfect views of the sea and the hills declining down to the rocky coves. From Riomaggiore a train ride takes you back to La Spezia concluding your Cinque Terre visit, before returning to Florence by coach.
