Cinque Terre Semi-Private Day Trip from Florence

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
You'll fall in love with Italy's prettiest coastal villages on a small-group excursion to the Cinque Terre from Florence. You've probably heard of the five famous fishing ports of the Cinque Terre. Now's your chance to visit these picture-postcard villages on a personalized small-group day trip that you'll treasure.

Numbers are limited to eight on this small-group tour, ensuring personalized attention from a guide.
  • Spectacular views from the water as you cruise along the Cinque Terre
  • Free time to explore Manarola, Vernazza, and Corniglia
  • Small group of up to 8 people for a personalized tour
  • Convenient round-trip transport from Florence
What to Expect
Travel by air-conditioned minivan from Florence to the coast of the Italian Riviera, driving through the scenic countryside of Tuscany and the Liguria region. The first stop of the day is in Manarola, where you’ll have free time to stroll the historic streets, take in the ocean views, or sample some regional wines at a local wine bar (own expense). Meet back up with your guide and travel to Vernazza by boat, gliding beneath the dramatic sea cliffs of the Cinque Terre. On arrival, explore Vernazza at your own pace, perhaps visiting its medieval sea tower, or enjoying a typical Italian lunch (own expense) at one of the seafront restaurants. Make a final stop in Corniglia, a village perched high in the hills of Liguria, before setting out on the return journey to Florence.
