From Florence to Cinque Terre Small Group Tour with Seafood Lunch

€ 239.00

A memorable day spent exploring one of the world's most spectacular coastal areas, the famed Cinque Terre, with the privileges of a unique Small-Group VIP experience departing from Florence!

Discover a fairytale-like destination where land and sea meet, led by the knowledge and personal attention of your dedicated private guide. During our Cinque Terre tour from Florence you will unveil the secrets and authentic charm of the area off-the-beaten tourist path. You will savour a delicious fresh Seafood lunch and you will relish the flavors of ancient typical cuisine and aromas of sensational wines.
Set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet, the Cinque Terre are five ingeniously constructed fishing villages. A Unesco World Heritage site since 1997 and still today they look very much like a version of a seafront garden of Eden!

Travel in full comfort aboard our comfortable minivan, lay back and admire the scenery: sinuous paths run across stunning cliffsides, and a 19th-century railway line cut through a series of coastal tunnels ferries the footsore from village to village.
Learn all about the Cinque Terre's history and unique feature from your guide: the steeply terraced cliffs bisected by a complicated system of fields and gardens hacked, chiseled, shaped and layered over the course of nearly two millennia. So marked are these artificial contours that some scholars have compared the extensive "muretti" (low stone walls) to the Great Wall of China! And all enhanced by the charming villages - Riomaggiore, founded in the 8th century by Greek settlers fleeing persecution in Byzantium, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Monterosso - which look onto the gleaming pristine waters of the sea.
Lose yourself in the gorgeous scenery, hike/walk along the famous trails (including the Via dell'Amore - please see notes) and explore a few of the fascinating villages traveling by boat, train and on foot.

Crown your day with a memorable typical Ligurian seafood feast, and exquisite regional white wines, in a lovely seafront restaurant.

Learn about the area's one-of-a-kind grape harvesting techniques enjoying an exclusive leisurely hike through luxuriant seafront vineyards: nobody in sight apart from the deep blue sea, verdant vines, your group and guide.

Weather and sea conditions permitting you will also admire the scenario from the water during a fabulous cruise.
