It was good to have the logistics sorted out. Dani was a friendly guide, but I would've liked a litle bit more information about the villages. When we arrived there she told us that only guides from the village are allowed to give details. This would've been nice to know beforehand for full disclosure (luckily I had my guidebook with me to read a bit). It woudl also have been good to have it mentioned that it would be the low season so many places closed, boat tour not possible. I wasn't after hiking but I don't think the time allocated for each village would've let people hike much. There was only an hour in the first two villages and about 2.5 in Monterosso. It was still enjoyable but just not a great tour.

Venture out into the colorful city of Florence to discover its many manmade and natural jewels! Sit back as you enjoy a 2 hr 15 min ride on an AC coach - listen to facts and stories about the places you'll see by your tour guide as you cross two regions, Tuscany and Liguria. You'll be escorted to a train station and board a local train. Journey along the coastline, breathing in the sea air and drinking in breathtaking views of the sea.

Vernazza & Monterosso

Pass along the unique coastline of Poets' Gulf as you deboard at the town of Vernazza. Spend some free time exploring this coastal town, soaking up views of fishermen boats, colorful homes, and more. Board back the train and journey down the Ligurian coast to Monterosso, Cinque Terre's largest town. Stroll, shop, eat, drink, sit, or swim - do what your heart pleases in this stunning coastal village!


Before you know it, it's "all aboard" again, and you're on your way to Manarola, a charming town characterized by its sea-facing streets and squares. Feel like you've stepped into a Renaissance painting as you take to the streets and soak up your surroundings. At this point, if you feel like you've seen it all, prepare to be amazed. Explore this town on your own, experiencing the local culture and hospitality firsthand as you do so.

Make sure you buy yourself some local culinary treats, such as the highly-prized pesto of the Liguria region! Soon you'll be back on board the train, back to your private coach to Florence.
