What to expect

Experience an unforgettable adventure around Cinque Terre -- five villages suspended between sea and land, designated by UNESCO as a world heritage site.

The bus from Florence will leave you in Manarola, where you can enjoy a visit of this colorful village. Afterwards, you will reach Vernazza by train. At the time of booking you can choose among: an option, which includes a wine tasting in a winery, or you can simply add to the wine tasting a typical lunch with pesto, focaccia, and more local specialities. If you more interested in learning something new and special, at the time of booking you can select the option that includes a pesto cooking class. You will learn how to prepare pesto alla genovese, and taste your creation along with wine, focaccia and local cheeses.

After you enjoyed your experience, you will catch the train to enjoy some free time in Riomaggiore, before taking the boat in direction to Monterosso. Your tour will continue by train from Monterosso to Manarola, where your driver will bring you back to Florence.
