Full description
Enjoy a day of paradise, exploration, and discovery in Cinque Terre, one of the most beautiful, colorful coastal towns in the world, on this full-day excursion. Travel by luxury bus to and from Cinque Terre, a fast train between the towns, and by boat to the last town. Depart early in the morning to ensure a full day of exploration. Get dropped off via bus at the first village of Cinque Terre National Park or in the town of La Spezia. Travel alongside an expert tour leader as you hop between towns. First, stop in Manarola. You may recognize it since it has gained fame from its incredible views. Spend plenty of time exploring the old town, taking photos at the panoramic viewpoints, and dipping your toes into the sparkling water. Next, take a 10-minute train ride to Vernazza. The harbor feels like a step back in time, where you can enjoy views of the emerald water, colorful buildings, and children playing. Take a stroll through the alleyways and artisanal stores before heading to the next town. Stop in Monterosso, about another 10 minutes away by train. Spend some time relaxing under the sun, swimming in the crystal blue water, and exploring the old town. After enjoying lunch in a typical restaurant (optional), head toward the last stop of the day, Riomaggiore, on a scenic cruise along the Cinque Terre coastline. Admire the unique perspective of the high cliffs, blue water, and brightly colored villages from the sea. Explore the local streets and shops before heading back to Montecatini via bus.

The trip got off to a bad start. I went to the meeting place at least 10 minutes before the indicated time, that is 7:35 for 7:45. The guide did not see me and the bus left without me. Fortunately, there was another group leaving for the Cinque Terre. I asked the guide who was Spanish speaking if I could go with his group. He accepted and contacted the people responsible so that I could join my group. Arriving in La Spezzia with the group of the Spanish-speaking guide, I met 2 Italian guides (Sabrina and another whose first name I forgot). They contacted the guide of my group and I finally joined her in Manarolla at 11:00. I could not visit Manarolla but I visited Monterosso, Vernazza and Riomaggiore. The guide was kind and dedicated. They came to take me back to Montecatini, my starting point. Finally, thanks to the Spanish-speaking guide, I didn't completely miss my excursion to the Cinque Terre.

We enjoyed the beauty of this place. It was just very hot for early June and crowded with a lot of tour groups, including ours. The lunch wasn’t the best. It was a seafood salad, plain pasta with pesto, and ice cream with fruit for dessert. It felt rushed. We could have just gone to Manarola and Monterosso and been just fine with those two villages. The tour guide was very good and explained where to meet, etc. She didn’t really teach us anything about the locations. She was there to accompany us and make sure we got to each destination and answer any questions we had. But she did a great job. If we did this again, we would probably book a boat tour of the villages and just stop at the two mentioned above.
