Cinque Terre: Private Day Trip from Florence with Lunch

Discover one of Italy’s most amazing destinations, the unforgettable Ligurian Coast of Cinque Terre, UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy scenic views of the 5 ingeniously constructed fishing villages on this private tour from Florence, accompanied by your own guide/sommelier. Cinque Terre was proclaimed as Italy's first national park in 1999. It is the smallest but also the densest national park in Italy. Between the villages, you will enjoy scenic train rides along the Ligurian coastline. A relaxing boat ride is also included between 2 of the villages so you can witness the stunning views of the Cinque Terre from the water. Wander the narrow streets, admire the colorful houses, or take the chance to swim in the turquoise water. Cinque Terre's rocky landscape has been tamed by winemakers who carved and cultivated the steep terraces facing the sea. It remains as Italy's most difficult area to cultivate, due to unfriendly environmental conditions. Despite this, the area produces high-quality wines that reflect the traits of the territory: the salty whiff of minerality served as a reminder of the terraced vineyards on the Ligurian coast. Its wines are equally stunning: refreshing like a dip in the sea and scented like its exotic flora. Apart from sightseeing, this tour is centered around wine and food autochthonous to the area and distinct in nature. Wine tasting is offered in one of the villages’ enotecas, where you will sample the most representative local wines, such as the classic Cinque Terre wine: a white made out of Bosco, Albarola and Vermentino and the real jewel of Cinque Terre: the dessert wine Sciacchetrà. A multi-course will be served in a restaurant overlooking the Ligurian sea. Dive into traditional food and local specialties like focaccia, seafood dishes and pasta with pesto, a sauce whose birthplace is the Ligurian region. Discover a paradise on the Italian Riviera where houses are suspended on steep cliffs and the crystal clear waters of the Ligurian Sea invite you in for a swim!

The guide was lovely and knowledgeable, also showing us videos from harvest to ready wines since we were there out of season. Great wine tasting if you are liking white wines, which we do. With great local goodies to go with. We also got to try the 2 limoncinos and the 3 olive oils which we also bought since they were bery good too. We like to support the smaller producers. It would have been nice if she had introduced herself to know her name and not just disappear at the end without saying goodbye or thanks, both directions. We did leave a tip with the shop lady but would have prefered to hand it directly. One thing to think about before booking this is that parking is more or less non existing and the bus from Riomaggiore only ran on the weekends st this time. And I think only once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Finding s taxi was also a bit complicated. We think that to have more visitors maybe organise pick up and drop off with vans or similar by the winery

The guide was very nice, she took the time for us. Wine tasting with an excellent aperitif on a magnificent terrace with the view and the sun. Very correct price.
