Take a full-day private excursion from Florence to explore the renowned ?Five Villages? of the Italian Riviera.
A cultural landscape of great scenic and cultural value, the Cinque Terre is an UNESCO World Heritage Site celebrated for its incredible beauty. This full-day excursion departs from and returns to your Florence hotel, and offers a convenient way to discover the colors and flavors of this fascinating area.
You will meet your guide in Riomaggiore, the southern-most of the "Five Lands." Due to rock slides Via dell'Amore and some of the Cinque Terre's paths are closed until further notice, therefore instead of walking between the villages, you will take the train or public boat instead.
After visiting Riomaggiore, you will reach Manarola, second smallest of the villages and probably the oldest; the cornerstone of Manarola's church of San Lorenzo was laid in 1338.
Corniglia is next. Perched on top of a promontory, Corniglia is the only one of the five villages without direct access to the sea. It is enclosed on three sides by picturesque, terraced vineyards while the fourth side descends steeply to the blue waters of the Mediterranean. After a guided visit of the village and its park, you'll stop for a tasty lunch of local dishes and wines at the Cantina de Mananan (included in the price).
Last but certainly not least is Vernazza, the most picture-perfect of the five and considered to be one of the most authentic fishing villages on the Italian Riviera. You'll not soon forget the feeling of being embraced by Vernazza's fine, natural harbor.
Please note that due to rock slides, the Via dell'Amore is closed until further notice. Therefore you will go from Manarola to Riomaggiore by train.
