What to expect

There is nothing better than exploring a real Italian coastal paradise with the exclusivity of a small-group tour. This is the most complete experience and the only one-day tour to Cinque Terre that will allow you to discover the beauty of the villages while breathing the true relaxed essence of this paradise. Exclusive escapes from the crowds that will reveal hidden, no touristy, gems. Relaxed savoring of two of the treasures of this region: its cuisine made of ancient traditional recipes and its unique local wines.

Departure from the meeting point in the morning, transfer to the North West Riviera with a comfortable air-conditioned minivan. During the day the guide will introduce guests to this spectacular corner of Italy, famous for its panorama, its wine, its food, the beautiful sea and hiking opportunities.

Visit some of the most beautiful villages and landscapes of the Cinque Terre National Park (a world-heritage protected by UNESCO since 1997): Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso, the villages clinging to a remote stretch of the Riviera coastline. You will enjoy the five-mile-long rocky coast lined by thousands of dry walls built on terraces cultivated with vineyards, and the small medieval fishing villages built on rock. Add to this the incredible color of the sea and the sky and you may understand what paradise the Cinque Terre really is.

Enjoy the most astonishing views either from land and sea as you stroll along the national park by boat, train, and walking/hiking on the fabulous trails on the cliff in a perfect mix for a memorable experience. A delicious full lunch with wine in a typical restaurant on the sea is included, thus you will be able to enjoy incredibly fresh seafood cooked the Ligurian way, accompanied by some great white wines typical of this region. An amazing boat ride (weather and sea conditions permitting) will be an additional memorable perspective on the Rivier and an opportunity to take back home with you the most incredible pictures of this day.

You will have the chance to admire the astonishing coastal panorama from a high vantage point, with a very light hike on an almost leveled trail through seaside vineyards, with no one else except your small group walking on it. Natural amphitheaters of luxuriant vineyards will disclose to your eyes and senses facing the sea and the open horizon, and you will learn about the unique peculiarities of grape harvesting (that often include incredible steep monorails through the vineyards) and wine production of this wonderful region. Get the best out of a day out, join this small group adventure!
