Shared Tour: Cinque Terre Best Experience with Lunch
The Cinque Terre is a beautiful stretch of rugged coast and the only unspoilt part left of the lovely Italian Riviera. It takes its name from the five picturesque fishing villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Cinque Terre have been inaccessible from the land for centuries, isolated by steep mountains and valleys on one side and by the sea itself on the other. Thanks to its isolation, the unspoilt charm of the Cinque Terre is a protected World Heritage Site and a National Park. Led by our knowledgeable guides, you will discover the spectacular coastline.
We first visit the Cinque Terre village of Manarola before continuing with a boat ride (weather permitting) to Monterosso, which is renowned for its beautiful beach and small craftsmen’s shops. The visit continues with a short train ride to Vernazza one of the prettiest of all, where we will have free time to sit in one of the cheerful bars and cafes. Next, we will travel by train to Riomaggiore where you will have some free time for a refreshing swim in the Mediterranean or shopping. Here a delicious local lunch is served in a typical restaurant with a perfect view of the sea and the hills declining down to the rocky coves. After lunch, a train ride will take us back to La Spezia concluding our Cinque Terre visit, before returning to Florence by coach.
