Red and yellow fishing villages nestled into violet cliffs and terraced vineyards: Let’s plunge into the colors of Cinque Terre!
Golden beaches , blue skies, violet cliffs, green waters, and red and yellow fishing villages clinging to the rocky edges of Southern Liguria: Cinque Terre boasts some of the most remarkable coastal views in Italy.
Starting in the center of Florence you will enjoy a pleasant journey through Tuscany and Liguria. Cinque Terre , one of Italy’s younger national parks and a famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a contrast of colors — a spectacular display of different landscapes. From the earth and the sea , to food and art , or culture and wine : Stretching across less than 15 kilometers of coastline, Cinque Terre has it all!
Our first stop will be in the charming Portovenere , where you will enjoy a pleasant walk along the narrow and picturesque alleys. You will then take a private motorboat driven by a professional guide who will show you cliffs, caves, colorful villages and all the peculiarities of the National Park of Cinque Terre. The view from the sea of Riomaggiore and Manarola , with its Genovese “case-torri”, is amazing.
Don’t forget to bring your swimming costume, if weather conditions allow it you will have the chance to swim into the crystal blue Mediterrean sea.
We will finally reach Vernazza , a tiny, charming jewel that is dominated by the medieval tower of Castello Doria. Enjoy a typical lunch in a panoramic restaurant , taste the renewed hand-made pasta with pesto alla genovese sauce, accompanied by a chilled white local wine.
Your driver picks you up for a comfortable ride back to Florence in the afternoon. A wonderful ride through the green Ligurian landscape covered with terraced vineyards and olive groves, ancient fishing villages pearls of the Cinque Terre.
