Cinque Terre Hiking Day Trip from Florence
Reviewed by: Anastacia M, December 2014
My few of my friends and I are studying abroad for the fall 2014 semester. We had a Thanksgiving break, so we decided to travel around Italy. One of our friends had heard about Cinque Terre and when we looked up pictures we decided that we needed to get there. We were staying in Florence, so we saw that the best way to do this was through this trip, and I'm telling you it was so worth it. The meeting point was easy to find. Our tour guide Julian was super cute and very knowledgeable about the things we passed on the bus. The hike itself was a little less than three miles and actually pretty difficult but not unmanageable by any means. We had an amazing seafood and pesto lunch with an amazing view of the colorful cities on the cliffs. We then got to walk around three or four of the five cities, and because we were there in fall it was not crowded at all. Overall, it was definitely a good price for all the things that were included and great for students. Everyone in my group loved it! The only thing is that if you have knee, back, or foot problems, the hike may be too much for you, but they will give you another option.

This was the best tour I have ever had. The guides were very informative and made everyone laugh and have a good time. They had options if you didn't want to hike anymore. We took a bus, train, hiked and a boat. Very awesome day. The guides told us a lot of history on the bus and lunch had the most awesome view. I have recommended this tour to everyone I know.

Our tour guide was the best ! Not only a expert guide, he provided memorable info about the area, and was very personable and accomodating. I liked that we had time on our own at each of the towns and appreciated that he knew the train schedule so well (which allowed us maximum time at each stop!)

This tour was definitely worth the money! Our guide, Julien, was fun, knowledgeable, and friendly. He thoroughly explained tinelines and what to expect before we hit each hike. The hikes were strenuous so be sure to wear comfortable shoes! I would definitely recommend this tour!

Amazing tour, guide and scenery. Angel was perfect at his job, making everyone feel special. The hiking was challenging after heavy rain but he kept us safe and even carried my belongings so that I could be hands free. Definitely a big day but worth it in every way.
