Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful and famous stretches of coastline in Italy but it isnt the easiest place to get to. In this world-first day trip we take care of all the logistics so you can visit this incomparable region from Rome in a single, breathtaking day. Youll get around 6 hours on the ground in Cinque Terre.
Your day start early, catching the first high-speed train from Rome, along with a group of no more than 15 people and your expert tour leader. Take a nap and enjoy some breakfast onboard; with one small train change youll be in Manarola in less than 3.5 hours, here youll be greeted with a welcome drink (local wine) and a pesto tasting.
After a brief tour of the city youll make your way up to the start of the Strada del Amore (Lovers Road) to take a few photos from one of the most famous vantage points in Italy. Trust us, youll recognize the view when you see it.
Then its onto a boat, heading down the jaw-dropping coastline for 15 minutes until you reach Vernaza, the quaintest, and most authentic of the Cinque Terre towns. Along the way youll pass the tiny town of Corniglia and marvel at its incredible location perched high above you on a clifftop.
In Vernazza youll have roughly an hour to spend as you please. Take a walk with your guide, grab a snack, take in its old castle, or simply wander its narrow, winding streets. Then hop on the train for a short jaunt down to Monterosso - the biggest town in Cinque Terre.
Here you have almost three hours to enjoy a leisurely lunch, shop for souvenirs, or even swim in the ocean and lay out for a bit of sun.
After all this fun youll hop back on a train in Monterrosso and head back to La Spezia Centrale, then on to Rome.
