Join a private guide to explore the 5 towns that make up the Cinque Terre — Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Corniglia, and Monterosso — on a day trip from La Spezia. Start your tour with a van, hop on a ferry, and take a train.
After meeting your guide at the cruise terminal of La Spezia, take a half-hour trip to Riomaggiore, perched on a terraced hillside high above the Ligurian coast. Make stops along the way to admire a panoramic view of the Cinque Terre villages.
Once in Manarola, experience the intricate layout of this village as you walk along the narrow lanes and steep stairways between the colorful cliffside houses and the marina.
Continue the trip by taking a ferry to the fishing village of Vernazza. Visit the terrace of Doria Castle which offers panoramic views of the village and its coast. Then, it's time to sample the local cuisine. Take recommendations from your guide and go to a local restaurant to enjoy lunch.
After your lunch break, take the train to Monterosso al Mare, the largest of the Cinque Terre villages and the only one with sand beaches in the area. Stroll through the narrow winding alleys of its historical center, and admire its many medieval buildings.
From there, travel back to La Spezia by train and van.
