This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Milan Visitor Center - Zani Viaggi

Departure point

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Borgo Storico di Manarola, Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera, Liguria

Leaving Milan, you arrive directly at the Cinque Terre and via a scenic route on the coast you reach Manarola. Here you'll have free time to venture around the vineyards, stroll the piers where fishing boats line the shore or watch the locals and the tourists jumping into the sea from the rocks of the harbour!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Footpath Monterosso - Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare, Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera, Liguria

Right before lunch time you catch the train to Monterosso al Mare, the biggest of the five villages, where you will have time to explore and visit the beaches dotted along the coast. Despite the number of tourists, there is still a real sense of local identity even in the most tourist-crammed little piazze'. Restaurants, bars and accommodation all have an endearingly homespun air about them as though when the locals saw tourists coming, they found a few garden chairs to stick on their terrace, hand painted a sign and began serving customers.

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Cinque Terre Trails, Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera, Liguria

During your free time, if you wish, you will able to explore the beginning of some of the trails leading inside the Cinque Terre national park.

Pass By: Parco Naturale Regionale di Porto Venere, La Spezia, Province of La Spezia, Liguria

From Monterosso you will start the final leg of your journey, probably the most inspiring, a 90 minutes boat cruise. The perfect way to admire the stunning views of the Cinque Terre and the delightful village of Portovenere from the sea. After this memorable experience, you will arrive at La Spezia where your coach will be waiting to take you back to Milan.

    Would definitely recommend this trip. We only had a day to explore the five towns of Cinque Terre and the tour helped us do that. The tour guide was also great at communicating.

    Had a great and will do it again. The bus travelled in was clean and the trip was quick snd good. The guide was knowledgeable and informative.

    The bad review is due to the fact that on this 14 hour ( 6:45 am -20:45pm) day trip, you spend 4 hours on a bus getting there and 4 hours back. We had 30 minutes free time in Manarola and 2 hours 30 minutes in Monterosso. That is 3 hours in total, the rest is travelling. The sea was also too rough so we could not do the boat part and had to take the train back to La Spenzia, where we had to walk 30 minutes to find the bus, to take us to Milan. The tour operator tried her best and gave us valuable information about Italy on the 4 hour trip to Cinque Terre but the 4 hours back in silence and heavy traffic was pure torture. Milan is too far from Cinque Terre for a day trip by bus.

    Cinque Terre is beautiful but we drove for 9+ hours to only experience the towns for two hours. Also there were way too many people on the trip - should’ve had 15 - 20 max and had over 40. Also, nothing was included with this except the bus ride to and from. Don’t recommend this, especially from Milan.

    It was great fun and beautiful. Interesting, landscape was something to behold. Tour operator was knowledgable and friendly.

  • 12-Sep-2022

    A great day tour from Milan to beautiful Cinque Terre! The tour guide did a good job and we were able to see 2 of the 5 towns. Highly recommend this tour.

  • 10-Sep-2022

    I always to dream to see Cinque Terre the same way in the pictures We saw only one village NO boat trip In one word I didn’t satisfy If I was my self all that time I will see all villages And tour guide was speaking more Spanish than English Over all I will not recommend anyone this tour😞

    It was windy, so they said , and the boat part didn't happen. But all was superb, service, treatment from Salvatore , the guide, punctuality, and the scenery of course which is just magic.

  • 03-Sep-2022

    This is a complete package with bus, train and boat ride around Cinque Terre region. We were able to cover a lot and were able to spend good amount of time in one of the villages for eating and shopping

  • 30-Aug-2022

    The boat trip along the Cinque Terre coast was the highlight for us. Unfortunately, it is a long bus ride from Milan to Cinque Terre and was even longer than usual due to unusually heavy traffic due to the start of vacation travel in Europe.
