Full description
Start your group day trip by meeting with all the participants in Florence. Once on-board, take the highway for the chance to admire the white Alpi Apuane, famous for the marble that gave life to masterpieces of Italian world-renowned architecture and sculptures. On your arrival in the area, your idea of these incredible lands will turn into reality. See the blue sky and the blue sea blend into one. See vines filling up the steep slopes, proof of a constant human endeavor that has never given up to the nature of the territory.  Once on-site, your guide will introduce you to the secrets and stories about this particular and complex area. Using the local train or boat, see Riomaggiore, the quiet Manarola and the picturesque Vernazza. At Monterosso al Mare find the perfect place to relax, do some shopping, enjoy the sea and have lunch in one of the local restaurants. At the end of the day, start your drive back to Florence.

Wrong info of latest check in (7:15). Prestige was not there at 7:15 but other company was with a crowd. Places are better in photos than real. Short time to see few and crowded places in a rushing tour.
