Depart from your Pisa hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for UNESCO-listed wonder of Cinque Terre, an enchanting region made up of five charming villages. Delight in the spectacular surrounding scenery as you follow the curve of the coastline and climb aboard a boat or train for the rest of your journey, depending on the weather and sea conditions.
On arrival at the Cinque Terre, follow your knowledgeable guide on a guided walking tour of each distinctive town; stop first at Riomaggiore, an enclave replete with pastel colored houses that appear to tumble into the sea, and then travel onward to Manarola, the oldest village on the stunning landscape.
Next, admire sweeping vistas of the Mediterranean Sea from the elevated perch of Corniglia; revitalize with a delicious Italian lunch in one of Vernazza’s sophisticated open-air restaurants (own expense); and then conclude with a rejuvenating stint on of one Monterosso’s beaches, famed for their silken sands and warm water.
After your relaxing interlude, reflect on your magical day during the journey back to Pisa, where the tour concludes.
