from Florence, Pisa, Lucca or directly from the Cinque Terre


After a train transfer from Florence, our day begins in La Spezia, a charming port town where we stroll through the streets, have second breakfast and take a boat to Portovenere - a pearl of the gulf of La Spezia with views across the gulf all the way to the famous marble quarries of Carrara. Having explored its picturesque harbor, we continue by boat to the Cinque Terre, with 45-60 minute stops in each of the villages except Corniglia (situated on a cliff high above the sea with challenging stairs and no port). We have lave lunch (at ca 2PM) in a local fish restaurant in one of the villages and then continue to the picturesque harbor of Vernazza and the old town of Monterosso - the last of the five villages. Train back to Florence from Monterosso.

A Recent Review of this tour

If you are going to visit the Cinque Terre then Anna is the person you want to go with. We had the most amazing day with her. We saw more and did more in a day than anyone could if the tried to do it on their own or with a cruise ship tour. Our time with her was fantastic and there were occasions she went up and above the call of duty to help us and make sure our time n the Cinque Terre was one that we would never forget.
