The Cinque Terre takes its name from the five picturesque fishing villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Each town has a distinct character, but all share alleys, arches and steep stone steps, best explored on foot. An idyllic snapshot of old-world Italy, the villages are surrounded by sunny beaches, narrow lanes lined with shops and stalls, brightly colored fishing boats, seaside promenades and sleepy piazzas.
The ancient trails are rough but manageable. Be prepared for the hiking – although the path is open to everyone, remember that the ground can be slippery, uneven, and in places steep and narrow. The charm of the area is that it is natural and unspoilt, so do not expect hand rails or safety rails when steps are steep or when the path is close to the edge.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Cinque Terre hiking day trip from Florence. We visited all five cities beginning with Manarola, then train ride to Corniglia where we ate a delicious Italian cuisine lunch, then hiked along the Italian Riviera coastline for about 2.5 miles to Vernazza. Took a train to the next city, Monterooso and boat ride to the 5th city, Riomaggiore. We had some time to poke around each city and enjoy some of the local delicacies. The hiking was comfortably moderate for those in good condition. Most of the cities were quite crowded and the paint on the buildings is not near as bright as most people's pictures show online. Our guides Molly and Jade did a great job of giving us a history lesson and points of interest throughout the day. Overall it was a fun tour and we arrived back in Florence by early evening.

This tour lived up to its expectation. Our guides Fabian and Jada were very informative and kept us entertained thro the trip. The tour began with a bus ride from Firenze SMN to Cinque Terre which takes roughly 2 hours. Followed by this, there is a hike with breathtaking views of the 5 villages. We chose not to hike because of an injury in my leg but we took the train and still managed to be with our group. Lunch involves pasta and delicious sea food as advertised. On our way back, we collected Pesto sauce which apparently originated in the Liguria region and some of the exotic pasta seasonings. Also try the local Limoncino which is produced by the locals. Finally, we rode a boat to Riomaggiore, which is also the most popular village. We returned back to Firenze by 8:45 PM ish. Overall, it was a great experience.
