Overview

Join the only tour that takes you to the Cinque Terre on a one-day hiking trip from Florence. Hiking is the only way to truly experience the magic of the Cinque Terre. Take a break from the bustle of the city and hike this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. It's a unique and memorable experience, exploring the only unspoilt survivor of the genuine Italian Riviera.

Highlights

  • All-inclusive tour
  • Excellent value for money
  • Instant Confirmation

Led by your knowledgeable guide you will trek scenic trails and wander through vineyards and olive groves, over stone walls and along a spectacular coastline. This tour includes coach transportation, rail and boat travel between villages and entry in to Cinque Terre National Park.
The Cinque Terre takes its name from the five picturesque fishing villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Each town has a distinct character, but all share alleys, arches and steep stone steps, best explored on foot. An idyllic snapshot of old-world Italy, the villages are surrounded by sunny beaches, narrow lanes lined with shops and stalls, brightly colored fishing boats, seaside promenades and sleepy piazzas.
The ancient trails are rough but manageable. Be prepared for the hiking – although the path is open to everyone, remember that the ground can be slippery, uneven, and in places steep and narrow. The charm of the area is that it is natural and unspoilt, so do not expect hand rails or safety rails when steps are steep or when the path is close to the edge.

This tour was worth every minute and was absolutely amazing! It was nice to have the day planned for us and we didn't need to think about a thing. Our tour guide, Chris, deserves a special shout out as he made our trip extra special with his running commentary! We were forewarned that it might be a cold and/or rainy day in December, but the weather ended up being sunny and in the 60s. PERFECT weather for a hike! What is CRITICAL for this rour is really comfy hiking shoes. I think I did 22,000 steps that day!

This was a great tour. Martina was our guide. She was amazing. We had constant drizzling rain so the paths were very muddy and of course rocky. Make sure you have good walking shoes or boots. We had a lovely lunch in one of the villages. This is a must do tour!

We had a wonderful time. The hiking part was just right. Had enough time in most locations. Due to being there in off season food and store options were pretty limited which did cause a few issues at lunch. But our guide Stefano was really great and helpful and on top of things. We had to take train connections a bit more than I expected, but again I believe that was due to time of year (November). Overall Hough would do again in a second.

This was pretty much the only hiking tour that I found for this time of the year and was glad I chose to go. Our large group of 50 was split into two and Lavigna was our guide. She made sure we stopped at the right spots and gave several options to walk around the villages. She very quickly got to know each of our names and that was quite impressive.Shoutout to Steffano too for his humorous talks all through.I highly recommend this tour and if either of these two if your guide, rest assured you will have a memorable experience.

We enjoyed our tour very much. The trip was organized well and our tour guide, Martina, was excellent. We a large group and she did a great job to make sure everyone was accounted for and accommodated all day. We highly recommend this tour for those who want to see this great area and can handle a moderately challenging hike.
