All about the Cinque Terre Tours from Florence.
Leaving from your accommodation in Florence we will reach Cinque Terre with a two hours’ drive that will offer amazing views on the Tuscan countryside and on Carrara with marble quarries. By the time we reach Riomaggiore, the first of the villages you will visit, you will have learnt from your driving guide about the story and tradition of the area.


In Riomaggiore you will have time to discover with your tour escort the marina and while you will walk by the colorful streets you will be able to browse the local shop.


Next we will visit Manarola, where any picture will look like a real postcard, from here we will transfer either by train or by boat ride to Vernazza, considered “the pearl of Cinque Terre”, where for lunch (own expense) , you will have a chance to choose any of the waterfront restaurants to taste the local cuisine possibly with a glass of Cinque Terre white wine, produced here since the 11th century.


After lunch meet your tour escort : after a drive on an impressive coastal road, we reach the most authentic and the smallest of the five villages: Corniglia, this little gem will be our last stop before drivng back to Florence in your luxury air conditioned van.

Most of the Cinque Terre tour goes on in easy footpath, by the way comfortable shoes or sandals are suitable, We if you are planning to do some hiking on your own hiking shoes are suggested,

You can take sealed alcoholic drinks in the car, regarding drinks in general (coffes etc..) no problem as long as you do the most to prevent spillage. In few words we rely on our clients’ civic sense in avoiding eating snacks and keeping the cars (which are public transportation vehicles ) as clean as you wish finding it. By the way Whenever the schedule of the tour allows it, we are happy to stop for a coffee and snack on the way. Of course we understand that if you travel with young kids a snack in the car will  be more than acceptable.

Cinque Terre villages are set in very steep valleys and can be a hard place to tour for disable people. Definitely it is not a place to reach with a wheelchair and with major difficulties (e.g. with sticks), please send us an email and we can discuss a personalized itinerary.

Driving time is about 2 hours each way.

Yes you can, the tour is planned to be mostly a car-driven tour but you can do little adjustments. The flexibility we offer is intended to be an opportunity for letting you do the most of the day. By the way we would require to stick to departure times and directions to complete the day in the regular schedule.
