What to expect

Discover the breathtaking area of Cinque Terre, a UNESCO Heritage site, visiting three of the five villages; departing from Florence, after approximately a couple of hours driving, you will reach the famous Cinque Terre site. Here, with the assistance of an expert guide and using the local train/boat (tickets included), you’ll be able to discover the beauties of Manarola, Vernazza and Monterosso where you will have free time for lunch (not included), shopping or relax on the beach.

Start your small-group day trip, meeting with all the participants in Florence. Once on-board, you will drive to the north-west direction, and from the highway, you will have the chance to admire the white Alpi Apuane, famous for the marble that gave life to masterpieces of the Italian world-renowned architecture and sculpture.

On your arrival in the area, your idea about these incredible lands will turn into reality! The blue sky and the blue sea blend all in one; vines fill-up the steep slopes, proof of a constant human work that has never given up to the nature of the territory. Once on-site, the guide will introduce you to secrets and stories about this particular and complex area and using the local train/boat (weather permitting) you will see Manarola, the “quietest” of the five towns, Vernazza, the most picturesque of the towns and Monterosso al Mare, the perfect place to relax, do some shopping, enjoy the sea and have lunch in one of the local restaurants (lunch not included)
