PORTOVENERE AND CINQUE TERRE TOUR
Portovenere and Cinque Terre is a beautiful tour of the Ligurian coast where you can visit 6 charming little towns. In fact the name Cinque Terre refers to 5 urban centers with characteristic buildings and colorful houses located on the seafront.
Time: 10 hours
Depart: Florence – service of “door to door”.
Journey time outwards 2hrs to Portovenere and return 2hr back to Florence
Departing from Florence we will travel to the scenic seaside village of Portovenere which is another seaside village just before the 5 Terre and well worth visiting.
From here you can take a ferry boat for 15 mins to the first 5 Terre village of Riomaggiore.
Spend about 30 mins looking around and then walk along the cliffs through the path of love to reach the next village, Manarola, walking time 20 mins.
Spend another 30 mins visiting this village and then go by train (10 mins journey) to the next village, Vernazza.
Here I suggest to have lunch as there are some good restaurants overlooking the quaint harbour.
After lunch get the next train to Monterosso and explore the village for 30 mins.
Time permitting, you can also visit Corniglia which is situated between Vernazza and Monterosso but it is the most difficult to reach as there are many steps and perhaps less interesting than the others.
The pick up point will be in Monterosso and we will drive back through the picturesque countryside with stunning sea views.
Train and ferry boat tickets and entrance to the path of love are not included in the prices and are to be paid on the spot.
