After driving through Tuscany into Liguria, stop in the first Cinque Terre village of Manarola. Enjoy panoramic views and take spectacular pictures of the land and coast. Manarola is one of the oldest villages of the Cinque Terre. Explore the narrow alleys and pretty pastel squares that epitomize the beauty of the area, and perhaps sample local renowned wine at a cozy wine bar (at your own expense).
After your visit to Manarola, meet your tour guide at a pre-arranged time for your shared boat ride to Vernazza. While on the boat, ogle the dramatic coastline from the water, framed against the hills.
Your second stop is at the village of Vernazza, arguably the most beautiful of the five villages with a large open harbor, castle and church. Enjoy some free time to walk around and have a relaxing lunch (own expense) at one of the open-air restaurants that line the waterfront, or take a stroll through the back streets for impressive views along the coast.
After your visit to Vernazza, meet your tour guide to drive to Corniglia. In the meantime, enjoy panoramic views and take spectacular pictures of the land and coast.
