Itinerary

Florence - Cinque Terre - Florence (L)

Relax as you travel towards the Cinque Terre, listen to stories about Lucca and its famous son Giacomo Puccini, and admire Michelangelo's astonishing marble mountains of Carrara.

Passing just above Manarola (the first village of the Cinque Terre), you'll enter the National Park before tightening your boots for the first section of the trail to Corniglia, a beautiful stretch that finishes with a climb of 382 steps. On the cliff top village of Corniglia a delicious lunch made of fresh Mediterranean seafood and the most authentic pesto pasta is served in a local restaurant with a perfect view of the sea and surrounding hillside. 

After lunch, your continue along the steep, ancient path, climbing high up through spectacular terraces of olives towards the village of Vernazza, one of the prettiest and most characteristic of the five towns, where you have free time to sit in one of the cheerful bars and cafés, or even have a cooling swim in the bay.

Next you will take a short train ride to Monterosso, this village is renowned for its beautiful beach and artisan shops. Enjoy free time to taste the local wine, explore the shops or dip your toes in the cool Mediterranean sea. Now, its time to sit back and relax as you enjoy a scenic 40-minute boat ride (weather permitting) along the shores of the Cinque Terre, the journey takes you to Riomaggiore. 

In Riomaggiore you begin the last part of the trail, called Via dell'Amore, “Lover's Lane” - a walkway hanging above the sea which leads to Manarola, completing your Cinque Terre visit before returning to Florence by coach.
