Full description

Discover the Cinque Terre on a day trip from Florence and explore the picturesque villages of Vernazza, Corniglia, and Manarola. Travel from Manarola to Vernazza on a panoramic boat, enjoy free time in Vernazza and get breathtaking views of the coast.

After driving through Tuscany into Liguria, stop in the first Cinque Terre village of Manarola. Take in panoramic views of the surroundings with spectacular photo opportunities.

Explore the narrow alleys and pretty pastel squares that epitomize the beauty of the area, and perhaps sample some renowned local wine at a cozy wine bar (own expense). After your visit to Manarola, meet your tour escort at a prearranged time for your shared boat ride to Vernazza. While on the boat, ogle the dramatic coastline from the water, framed against the hills.

Stop at the village of Vernazza, with a large open harbor, castle, and church. Take advantage of free time to walk around and have a relaxing lunch (own expense) at one of the open-air restaurants, or take a stroll through the back streets. Afterward, drive to Corniglia and admire the spectacular views of the land and coast.

Our guide was excellent and provided so much information during our commute and while we were in the Cinque Terres. We enjoyed our day thoroughly and would highly recommend this trip!

Great tour with a wonderful guide. The drive there and back was long but the overall experience was very good.

Pretty views and comfortable van but driver barely spoke would have liked some information about where we visited rather than just where to meet and what time
