With passionate and endless work, human beings have proved how it may be possible to improve the work of nature, transforming an extreme and wild region into an authentic corner of heaven, whose fascination and harmony are hardly approachable: Cinque Terre. The sea is just the frame of the incredible beauty of the steep slopes, of the daring and unexpected vineyards, of the romantic villages which suddenly appear, plunged into a still uncontaminated nature.
Meet your guide at your hotel and transfer by minivan towards Corniglia. Along the panoramic route, you will discover from above the imposing Navy Arsenal and the related settlements, enjoying a spectacular view of the gulf with the Apuan Alps in the background. Then, Cinque Terre will welcome you, forcing you to open your eyes wide and to hold your breath while reaching the view of Riomaggiore. Go down and discover with your guide the most characteristic pathways and the Saint Lawrence Church.
By train, you’ll reach Monterosso to visit the Saint John the Baptist Church, the Mortis et Orationis Oratory, and the typical hamlet, before tasting the great local wines in one of the most beautiful wine farms in the region. Ask your passionate guide advice for having a typical lunch, then enjoy some shopping time before navigating by ferry boat along the wonderful stretch of coast to Vernazza, the pearl of the Cinque Terre for a detailed visit. Then, you will be driven back by minivan to La Spezia and thereafter, to your hotel. Get ready for an exclusive experience in Cinque Terre.
