Full description

Visit one of Italy's most enchanting destinations, Cinque Terre, on a day trip by coach, train, and boat. Each of these unforgettable little cities will take your breath away with their gravity-defying dance above the azure waters. This day trip will give you an unforgettable and fun introduction to this coastal gem. Begin your tour of these UNESCO sites at daybreak with your arrival in La Spezia. Board a train to Riomaggiore, a quaint medieval town dating to the 13th century. Marvel at the winding streets of this village and its charming houses leaning one against the other. Next, head over to Manarola to enjoy panoramic views. Continue on to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village considered the "pearl of the Cinque Terre." Finally, take a boat across to Vernazza, whose natural port has kept it safe from invaders for centuries.

Beautiful places to visit. Activity exactly as advertised and tour guides friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Only downside was how packed the day was. Could have done with visiting less villages. Transport was overcrowded and at times stressful. Overall though enjoyed the experience.

Although it was quite hot when we visited Cinque Terre for a day during the 3rd week of July, it was a very nice experience to see 4 out of the 5 iconic seaside villages. The guide Constantino was very friendly with a nice sense of humor. If I had better idea about the places beforehand, I would have probably liked to stay there for 2-3 days (although it could be expensive!) to enjoy the ambience of the villages and the company of new people. Would definitely recommend fellow travellers to check out this place.

This was the best decision we made to book the tours to Cinque Terre. We were able to enjoy every second on this tours. They took care of everything so we could just enjoy the views and learn very much about the area. Best tours ever! The weather was beautiful as well!
