Full description

Once you arrive at the port of La Spezia, meet your tour leader at the cruise terminal. Take a 20-minute walk to arrive at the train station from where you will begin your adventure. On the walk, you will discover the beautiful city center of La Spezia. Trains are undoubtedly the ideal means of transportation to explore the area, in just 15 minutes, passing through the sheer heights of the Ligurian Sea, you will reach Vernazza, one of the most colorful villages in the area.

Here you can enjoy some free time in this picturesque village, characterized by pastel-colored houses with beautiful views of crystal clear waters. The second stop will be Monterosso, the largest of the Cinque Terre villages, which also owns a stunning beach characterized by fine white sand and a clear and transparent sea. Here you will have a surprise reserved for you, a tasting of delicious Limoncino in a traditional shop.

This exquisite liqueur is ideal to toast for the wonderful day that you are spending, immersed in the nature, colors, and flavors of this fascinating and unique land. After having some free time in Monterosso, take the train to Riomaggiore, the last stop before coming back to La Spezia.

This small village, like the other four, offers breathtaking views of the coast, as well as glimpses of the daily lives of the fishermen with their traditional boats that you will see tied to the port. Also, if you are staying at La Spezia, choose the best starting point for you: the cruise port or the train station.

    Very good organization throughout the day. We had free time on each stop, which allowed us to visit each city as we wished. The Limoncilio tasting was rushed and charmless. The lady in the store was cold and didn't speak the whole time. The July/August period is to be avoided because there is a very high tourist influx.

    Guided tour carried out on Monday, July 11, 2022. The visit began with a walk to reach the meeting point with La Spezia train station, a journey taken advantage of by our guide to tell us the history of the city, in English, Spanish, Italian and French! We were able to quickly take a train to our first village Riomaggiore. Then visit Vernazza and finally Monterosso. For each village, our guide told us the places to see and everyone was able to organize their visit freely.

    Very nice excursion which allows us to visit 4 villages out of 5 and to have a good overview of the Cinque Terre. Our guide Sonia was very kind and very professional. She explained everything to us well and we even went on a short hike with her in Manarola. I recommend this excursion!
