Nestled along the cliffs, on the eastern end of the Italian Riviera lies scenes from romantic postcards and your favorite movie scenes: Cinque Terre. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cinque Terre or “5 Lands” are historic and charming villages that boast fresh and delicious delicacies, pastel-colored houses built into the cliff sides and a history unlike any other. Join us for a six-hour private tour, where along with your expert, local guide, you can customize your journey to Cinque Terre.

You will meet your guide at the train station in La Spezia and make your way to La Spezia Cruise Port where you’ll board the 5 Terre Express train. With very limited automobile and transportation options to Cinque Terre, you’re already utilizing an insider’s path by approaching from the sea! With your guide’s knowledge, you will have the chance to decide which of the villages you’d prefer to visit and how long to stay at each of them. As you pass through the blue waters you’ll marvel at the breathtaking scenery, pastel-colored houses on sheer cliff faces and catch glimpses of the natural flora of the land.

Cinque Terre’s five villages date from the early medieval period. Starting with Monterosso, and founded in 643 AD it is most known for the fresh and juicy lemons and plump anchovies. Visiting Manarola will place you right back in time with reminders of everyday fishing life, a bustling main street and fishing boats, bobbing in the water--don’t forget to pick up a few bottles of Sciacchetra, a sweet wine cultivated and produced in Cinque Terre.

The small village of Corniglia doesn’t have direct access to the sea, but from a sea-facing terrace, you can see all five villages at once--a breathtaking sight to behold! As you enter Vernazza’s small and incredibly charming harbour, your eyes and mind will wander along the maze of hidden stairwells, tiny terraces and narrow streets. Last, but not least, Riomaggiore, established in the 8th century by Greek settlers, is most well-known for its pastel-colored houses dotting the cliffside.

At the end of your tour, your guide will accompany you back to La Spezia cruise port and you’ll be armed with the knowledge to visit Cinque Terre and a mind filled with day dreams of the beautiful landscape and scenery. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to hand-pick the sights and strolls you’ll get to see as you’re expertly guided through the infamous Cinque Terre.
