What To Expect

Obelisco della Piazza dell'Unita italiana
Sit back and relax as we take a 2.25 hour ride via comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Your guide will entertain you with tales of the area as you cross two regions: Tuscany and Liguria. Both are rich with history, cultures and traditions that deserve to be told. Upon arrival, you’ll be escorted to a quaint and comfortable local train. Enjoy the journey along the coast line, breathing in the fresh sea air and admiring a view like no other.

The first stop brings you to the town of Vernazza, one of the most stunning places on the West Coast of Italy. You’ll notice fishermen’s boats docked daintily by the beach, colorful homes peppering the scenery, an old house looming on the horizon. It’s quite breathtaking. Enjoy free time to explore this beautiful village on your own, seeing what you want, as you wish.

We’ll once again catch the train and continue our journey down the Ligurian coast and stop at Monterosso, the largest town among the Cinque Terre. Dine on a local dish as you please, selecting that which tempts your taste buds most. Stroll, shop, sit, or even swim (don’t forget to pack your swimsuit just in case you’d like to take a dip in the sea, you have plenty of time for it!), the choice is entirely yours.

Then it is “all aboard!” as you are taken by train to the charming town of Manarola, characterized by its narrow streets and small square looking out over the sea. It is so picturesque it will seem like you’ve stepped into a Renaissance painting. But it is entirely authentic, we assure you.

At this point you’ll be satiated, feeling you’ve seen the prettiest small harbour in the world. But you haven’t. Not quite yet. Not until you reach our final destination, Riomaggiore. Here in this tiny village perched high atop a cliff dropping straight into the sea, you’ll be dazzled with sweeping views of the tiny harbour, full of colourful boats and vibrant natural formations. Once again, take your time to amble around the area on your own and discover everything fate has in store for just you

La Spezia
Be sure to savour your final sampling of the Liguria region’s famous flavors, including its highly prized pesto, because soon you’ll be back on board the train for a quick ride to your private air-conditioned coach to Florence. Use this return trip to rest while relishing in the wonderful memories just collected on this one-of-a-kind tour. You deserve it.
