With your expert Florencetown guide, get far beyond the guidebook to really “get” the Cinque Terre; a five mile stretch of a beautiful rocky coast . It takes its name from the five picturesque fishing villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso. A knowledgeable driver will take you to all five villages in one day! Our private driver will be taking to La Spezia where your guide will meet you to accompany you to this charming promontory. Best explored on foot... so gear up; are you ready for a hike? The only way to truly experience the magic of this uncontaminated jewel on the genuine Italian Riviera is with a combination of easy walks, village visits, train rides and a short boat trip between the atmospheric Cinque Terre villages. The road was only built in the 1970’s. Thanks to its isolation, today the unspoiled charm of this land is a protected World Heritage Site and National Park of UNESCO. Indeed, it has been inaccessible by land for centuries. It is a man-made landscape between sky and sea. And now you can trek along the Via dell’Amore (the love path)! Literarily , over a thousand years, the inhabitants transformed a hostile natural environment and created a close-knit network of terraces to realize vineyards, olive groves and plant lemon trees. Your expert tour guide will point out the best eateries to purchase delicious local Ligurian treats. And to eventually stop during one village and another, at a characteristic trattoria to savour the local cuisine with a breathtaking view onto the sea. Some free time perhaps for a swim in the sea (weather permitting!). Florencetown can’t wait to show you the most stunning seaside villages in this one fantastic tour! At the end finally, after an awarding and intense day, your private driver will be waiting for you to take you back to your hotel.
