What to expect

Spend an unforgettable day exploring the Cinque Terre National Park with an experienced guide. Discover the enchanting seaside villages of this wonderful UNESCO site, and experience the beauty of nature hiking among vineyards, olive groves and lemon trees cultivated on panoramic terraced land overlooking the sea.

Enjoy total immersion in the special atmosphere of the five enchanting Cinque Terre villages, which are famous worldwide for their position perched on the rocky coast and for the pastel colors that reflect on the blue sea. You'll also venture off the beaten path and hike along high trails offering breathtaking views.

Experience a unique journey immersed in the Mediterranean scrub, discover ancient sanctuaries and farmhouses surrounded by vegetable gardens that emanate the heady scent of basil, between lemons, vineyards and olive trees that the tenacious local people have been cultivating for millennia.

Your adventure starts from Manarola, a beautiful village laying on the rocks that slope down to the sea. A comfortable minibus will then take you to a panoramic trail leading to Corniglia, the smallest, most hidden and higher positioned of the five villages, from which you can enjoy a spectacular view over the whole Riviera. Don't miss the chance to taste a fragrant basil ice-cream, the main ingredient of the famous Ligurian pesto.

Monterosso, the largest of the five villages, awaits you with its medieval old town, the typical shops and trattorias. Have lunch by the sandy beach and enjoy a cool-down swim in the crystal clear sea. A few minutes by train you'll find Vernazza, the pearl of Cinque Terre, a picturesque palette full of colors built around an ancient castle.

You'll finally reach Riomaggiore, a village perched on a narrow rocky bay, where you'll watch fishermen work next to their brightly colored boats in the small harbor. Take this final great opportunity to snap fantastic pictures of a landscape that is unique in the world!
