Description

Explore the enchanting sights of the Cinque Terre with a 3-day journey that combines a guided tour with plenty of time to explore the Italian coast for yourself. You get an introduction to the beautiful cliffs, followed by the freedom to get to know the area at your own pace.

Day 1: Cinque Terre & Santa Margherita Ligure The first day starts with a ride out from Florence to discover the collection of coastal villages that rest amid the enchanting landscape of the Italian Riviera. Get some free time to explore the historic towns of Manarola and Vernazza for a pair of pleasant stops among the warmly painted houses that line the lush coastal cliffs.

Next, join the ancient fishing community of Monterosso al Mare for some time on the beaches lined by greenery. You can go for a swim in the brilliant turquoise sea and enjoy a light Ligurian lunch before moving on to Riomaggiore by boat, where you can admire its intricate network of steep stairways and narrow lanes. Finish the tour in La Spezia, where you part ways with the group and make your way to Santa Margherita Ligure for the night.

Day 2: Santa Margherita Ligure & Portofino You have the whole day free to explore the town and relax on the Mediterranean coast. Admire the castle that dates back to the 16th century and the Republic of Genoa along with the tower of Cervara Abbey, and take the ferry to the cosmopolitan resort village of Portofino. Finish your day of leisure back at your hotel for another overnight stay.

Day 3: Return to Florence After free time in the morning, the train carries you to La Spezia, where your tour escort meets you for the trip back to Florence. Board the coach to arrive in the evening as the journey comes to an end.
