Spend an unforgettable day in Cinque Terre a corner of Liguria known all over the world thanks to its fishing villages, crystalline water surrounded by mountains and lush vegetation. This place was once a real hidden gem and even if during the last years this is one of Italy’s top attractions you can still find and breath smell of authenticity. Despite the fact that villages are pretty small this is a place that rewards taking it slow, whether you’re enjoying a glass of wine at a waterfront table in Vernazza, admiring the views from the Castle, relaxing at an ancient sanctuary on a cliff top high above, or simply sunbathing on the beach.
With this tour, you can preserve this aim and you can have a taste of Cinque Terre in one day. First, you’ll visit Manarola where you’ll admire a tiny urban jewel characterized by Genoese style ‘case-torri’ and have some free time to relax and discover hidden corners of this village. Then with the train, you’ll reach Vernazza a village overlooked by the remains of a Medieval castle with a cylindrical tower that you can climb and enjoy the view. Decide to taste the typical focaccia Ligure or if you prefer maybe you can have some local fried seafood which is a must in Cinque Terre. Then, you’ll move with the train to Monterosso known as the ‘pearl of Cinque Terre’. This ancient fishing village with lovely beaches will certainly astonish you. Here you’ll spend the whole afternoon and you can grab something to eat or drink, or you can visit the historical center or just relax under the sun. This is completely up to you.
After take the last train of the day and reach La Spezia where our bus will be waiting for you and you’ll go back to Florence where the tour will end.
Try to imagine how it would be to spend a day like the in the old Italian movies: driving a vintage…
