Explore the breathtaking Ligurian coast on a visit of Cinque Terre - a small corner of paradise divided into five villages suspended on steep cliffs overlooking the sea.  Experience a unique landscape and a place where vegetation and lush vineyards frame spectacular scenery.  Your visit will include four of the five villages.  In this area, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, earth and sea blend to create a unique landscape.  There are miles of rocky coasts with caves, beaches, hiking paths and breathtaking views.

Meet your driver in Florence where the tour begins.  You'll first reach Manarola, a tiny urban jewel characterized by Genoese style "case-torri."  Then move to Vernazza, a village overlooked by the remains of a medieval castle with a cylindrical tower, where you can enjoy some free time.  Next you will reach Monterosso, known as the "pearl of Cinque Terre."  This ancient fishing village with lovely beaches and lush vegetation covering the rocks will certainly astonish you.  There you will have a typical Ligurian lunch with the chance to taste the handmade pasta "trofie" with Pesto sauce and other typical delicatessen fare.  After lunch, you'll have the chance to take a swim as this village boasts a perfect sandy beach and crystalline water.  Finally you'll enjoy the village of Riomaggiore - a small village with several colored dwellings of three or four floors defined as tower-houses, which follow the steep course of a nearby stream.  Enjoy some free time there before heading back to La Spezia where the bus will be waiting to take you back to Florence.

The visits to the villages are not guided.
