The car will pick you up at 8:30 AM at your hotel in
Florence. Your guide-driver will then
take you to the Portovenere Pier where you board a local
boat. You will travel through this section
of the Italian Riviera to visit the following villages:
RIOMAGGIORE, MANAROLA, CORNIGLIA,
VERNAZZA AND MONTEROSSO.
The Cinque Terre forms one of the most unspoiled areas
along the Mediterranean Sea and
extending into Liguria. These towns are considered to
be the epitome of nature and where wild scents abound.
Thankfully, they have been so well maintained, that
very little has changed in these stunning
areas throughout the centuries. To visit the Cinque
Terre means to experience five unique villages.
Each is suspended between sea and earth, clinging onto
cliffs and surrounded by green hills. While
you are in Cinque Terre, you will have a choice of activities.
Your options can include such things as diving in the
sea, hiking in the hills, walking along the narrow alleys,
and taking a boat trip. You will also have the opportunity
to make a pilgrimage to a sanctuary, and indulge in
a delicious seafood lunch.
This is a landscape that is unique in the world. Here,
you discover that people and nature have coexisted in
harmony for centuries.
The first town you will come to will be Riomaggiore.
Here, you will be able to take a stroll along the lover's
walk to the next town, Manarola.
From there, you will board a boat with the locals and
cruise past the third town, Corneglia, and then the
fourth town, Vernazza.
Your boat will then dock at the fifth town, Monterosso.
This is the only town in Cinque Terre
with a port. You'll be returning to the Portovenere
Pier by boat on your own where your tour-manager will
be waiting for you for the return drive to Florence.
