Cinque Terre Hiking Day Trip from Florence

Best Seller
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Join the only tour that takes you to the Cinque Terre on a one-day hiking trip from Florence. Hiking is the only way to truly experience the magic of the Cinque Terre. Take a break from the bustle of the city and hike this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. It's a unique and memorable experience, exploring the only unspoilt survivor of the genuine Italian Riviera.
  • Savor the scenery of the Cinque Terre on a hiking tour 
  • Enjoy coastal walking routes inaccessible by car 
  • Embark on a moderately challenging hike 
  • Spectacular coastal views along the Cinque Terre
What to Expect
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. The tour culminates with a boat ride along the Italian Riviera to colorful Riomaggiore. From here, you’ll hike to Manarola and relax during the coach ride back to Florence.
