What to Expect
After greeting your guide in central Florence, board an air-conditioned coach destined for the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its colorful seaside towns. The first stop is Riomaggiore, replete with pastel-colored buildings and cobbled streets that are best revealed on a walking tour. Then, continue to Manarola to stroll around the harbor and snap photographs of the houses that cling to the cliffs. Travel to Monterosso by boat where, if you’ve upgraded to include lunch, you can enjoy seafood and pasta accompanied by wine at a local restaurant. Opt to sunbathe and swim at a nearby beach before you continue to Vernazza, known for its olive-oil production.   Your guided tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point in Florence. Note: Cinque Terre low-cost option does not include train and boat tickets.
