Itinerary
Cinque Terre are five coastal villages in eastern Liguria that make up a UNESCO World Heritage site! Here, a train links the five different villages together.

A small group tour with a max of 8 people is the perfect solution for those who want to keep the costs down and at the same time touch as many destinations as possible without being in a 54-seat bus.

Your driver will be with you for the entire day. He will escort you on the boat, trail and train.

Arrive at Manarola by black mercedes minivan and from there you will take the boat to Monterosso al Mare.

Monterosso al Mare, a small village with a population of about 1500 soul, this is the largest village! Stone steps link the village center to the port and seaside promenade. Monterosso al Mare is surrounded by hills bedecked in vineyards and olive groves. Thursday is market day: displaying local arts and crafts, food, and wine. Be sure to see the Twelfth Century Church of St. Francis, built in the Ligurian Gothic style, which includes black and white marbles.

From Monterosso al Mare you will hike to Vernazza (110 minutes), or take the train instead enjoying just a 5 minutes ride.

These ancient trails are rough but manageable. Be prepared for the hiking – although the path is open to everyone, remember that the ground can be slippery, uneven, and in places steep and narrow. The charm of the area is that it is natural and unspoiled; do not expect handrails or safety rails when steps are steep or when the path is close to the cliff edge.

Vernazza is the only natural port of the five villages. Being the wealthiest village its architecture is most elaborate. See the Castle of the Doria, look at the watchtowers, and do not miss the Romanesque sanctuary of Our Lady of Reggio. You will be amazed by its simplicity and yet fascinated by its architecture.

In Vernazza we can have a cooling swim in the sea, a nice shower and we can enjoy a delicious lunch made of uthentic Pesto Pasta and fresh Mediterrean seafood (not included in the price).

Train from Vernazza to Manarola and back on the Black Mercedes minivan on the way to Florence with a quick stop to see Pisa Leaning tower.

Please note:
- Public boats operate subject to weather conditions and along the Cinque Terre until about the 3rd week of October.
- The driver/guide will thoroughly introduce the places being visited, from a cultural, historical and artistic viewpoint while walking or driving to and through them, but is not licensed to give in depth explanations at sights or guide inside churches, or museums.
- Entrances to museums, castles and villas, meals, food and beverage, boat tickets, train tickets and sightseeing tours with local guides and tips are NOT included in the tour

No, the stop is not that long to wait in the line and climb the tower.
