Your day begins with a private coach through northern Tuscany from a convenient location in downtown Florence close to most hotels and the Santa Maria Novella train station. Sit back and relax on your journey to the "Italian Riveria".
The World's Most Famous Fishing Villages
Only a few decades ago, these five quaint towns on the Ligurian coast were isolated and unknown to most of the world. On this trip you will explore the wonderful natural harbors and streets of brightly painted houses that used to guide the fishermen ashore. Beginning in the medieval alleyways of Manarola you will then head to the stunning port of Vernazza where the Instagram opportunities are endless. Later you will take a quick train that itself is an unbelievable feat of infrastructure, to the wonderful beaches of Monterosso where you can sunbathe and take in the breeze and sands of the Mediterranean.
Sail to the Last Stop
Before heading back to Florence, the last stop is Riomaggiore famous for its panoramic views, blue waters and more amazing pastel homes. To arrive in Riomaggiore you will sail down the coast in by boat taking in amazing views of the cliffs and towns surrounding. Feel the wind in your hair and luxuriate in the beauty from Cinque Terre's most breathtaking perspective. After disembarking and enjoying a quick exploration of Riomaggiore's panoramic terraces, your private coach back to Florence will be waiting as you complete your day on the coast

My title said Sailboat Ride which I see here has been corrected.
My descriptor did not mention, a long coach ride, then two separate train rides to 2 different villages then a boat trip to another village. The return journey with the same itinerary made for a very long day from Florence. ie 12 hours in total from hotel in Florence and back. The 2 tour guides were busy keeping track of all the folk on board which made their job very difficult as the trains were booked to more than capacity numbers.
Great day tour that is very well organized and stress free. Our tour guide “Valentina” was outstanding in every way. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and engaging. She’s a born tour guide. Everything on this tour is right on schedule with no delay. Plenty of free time to explore on your own. Very reasonably priced tour that won’t disappoint.
The sailboat ride was the best!
Love this tour and made some great memories with my husband!
