Explore the scenic Italian Riviera! Discover one of Italy’s most amazing destinations, the unforgettable Ligurian Coast of Cinque Terre, UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy scenic views of the 5 ingeniously constructed fishing villages on this private tour from Florence, accompanied by your own sommelier guide.

Between the villages you will enjoy scenic train rides along the Ligurian coastline. A relaxing boat ride is also included between 2 of the villages so you can enjoy stunning views of the Cinque Terre from the water. Wander the narrow streets, admire the colourful houses or take the chance to swim in the turquoise water.

A multi-course lunch paired with the aromatic, mineral wine of Cinque Terre will be served in a restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Cinque Terre remains Italy's most difficult area to cultivate due to unfriendly environmental conditions. Dive into traditional Ligurian food and local specialties, such as seafood dishes and pasta with pesto!
