Travel Flexibly 4.7 / 5 See All 6 Reviews · 13.00h 50 max · Florence, Italy

One of Italy's most treasured gems and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cinque Terre is a Must See on your trip to Tuscany. On this excursion, travel in an air-conditioned private coach directly from central Florence for a truly memorable experience with an English-Speaking Tour Attendant.

Private Transportation from Florence

Your day begins with a private coach through northern Tuscany from a convenient location in downtown Florence close to most hotels and the Santa Maria Novella train station. Sit back and relax on your journey to the "Italian Riveria".

The World's Most Famous Fishing Villages

Only a few decades ago, these five quaint towns on the Ligurian coast were isolated and unknown to most of the world. On this trip you will explore the wonderful natural harbors and streets of brightly painted houses that used to guide the fishermen ashore. Beginning in the medieval alleyways of Manarola you will then head to the stunning port of Vernazza where the Instagram opportunities are endless. Later you will take a quick train that itself is an unbelievable feat of infrastructure, to the wonderful beaches of Monterosso where you can sunbathe and take in the breeze and sands of the Mediterranean.

Sail to the Last Stop

Before heading back to Florence, the last stop is Riomaggiore famous for its panoramic views, blue waters and more amazing pastel homes. To arrive in Riomaggiore you will sail down the coast in by boat taking in amazing views of the cliffs and towns surrounding. Feel the wind in your hair and luxuriate in the beauty from Cinque Terre's most breathtaking perspective. After disembarking and enjoying a quick exploration of Riomaggiore's panoramic terraces, your private coach back to Florence will be waiting as you complete your day on the coast

Great time in Cinque Terre

We had a wonderful experience with Constantine and John. John was a great driver. Constantine was informative, funny and a great communicator. He kept the trains running on time (pun intended)as we visited four of the five islands along with a nice boat ride down the coast. We had plenty of personal time to explore the villages and have a nice lunch. Would highly recommend.

My title said Sailboat Ride which I see here has been corrected.

My descriptor did not mention, a long coach ride, then two separate train rides to 2 different villages then a boat trip to another village. The return journey with the same itinerary made for a very long day from Florence. ie 12 hours in total from hotel in Florence and back. The 2 tour guides were busy keeping track of all the folk on board which made their job very difficult as the trains were booked to more than capacity numbers.
