Your journey begins with a coach ride from Florence to Manarola, where your 3.4-mile (5.5-kilometer) hike begins. Follow a scenic trail that stretches through all five of the Cinque Terre’s UNESCO-listed fishing villages, hearing from your guide about points of interest along the way.
Hike along cliffside trails in Corniglia, pass terraces of olive groves and cafes in Vernazza, and refresh tired feet during a swim stop in a bay. Then, take the train to Monterosso, where you’ll have free time to explore the beaches and artisan shops typical of the village.
