Know More about this tour

Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful and famous stretches of coastline in Italy but it isn’t 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. You’ll 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 you’ll be in Manarola in less than 3.5 hours.

After a brief tour of the city you’ll make your way up the Strada del Amore (Lover’s Road) to take a few photos from one of the most famous vantage points in Italy. Trust us, you’ll recognize the view when you see it.

Then it’s 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 you’ll pass the tiny town of Corniglia and marvel at its incredible location perched high above you on a clifftop.

In Vernaza you’ll have around 2 hours to spend as you please. Grab a snack, take in its old castle and the ancient town walls, or simply wander its narrow, winding streets. Then it’s back on the boat 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.  You can also join your guide for a short hike up to the Capuchin Monastery after lunch.

After all this fun you’ll hop back on a train in Monterrosso and head back to Rome.

From 01 March 2018, we are slightly changing the itinerary of this tour:

After arriving with the train in la Spezia we are adding a panoramic drive along the coast with spectacular views from  la Spezia to Manarola. Customers will get to see the vineyards that make the famous wine from the region. Once our group arrives in Manarola they will enjoy a welcome drink (local wine) and a pesto tasting (with local bread). We will then take the boat to Vernazza. Here customers have the option of taking a walk with the guide or enjoy free time. From Vernazza we are taking the train to Monterosso. Customer can either take some free time to shop or swim (remove optional hike here). From Monterosso we are taking the train to La Spezia Centrale and then the train back to Rome.

Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate guests with mobility impairments, wheelchairs or strollers on this tour.

If the boat doesn't run due to bad weather conditions, we will take the train instead and include a visit to Riomaggiore town.

Please note that lunch is not included in this service. You will have free time to eat and your guide will be happy to recommend places to eat a full sit-down meal or to grab something quick while shopping.

  • Great Day trip from Rome. Take your swimsuit and enjoy the afternoon on the beach. The tour guild had everything worked out so we could travel there glitch free and enjoy the most time possible at each location.

  • A great way to see Cinque Terre if you're short on time. I was going to do this solo, but was concerned about organising my own trains and not missing them etc. So this eased my mind. Naturally it had a bit of a rushed feel to it, as we covered 3 towns plus 3 hours on a train each way, but it was definitely worth it. Our guide Pablo was friendly and full of information and tips. Definitely recommend doing this if you're short on time. Also only 8 people on the tour which made it more personal.

  • I'm really torn about how to rate this tour. The logistics of this day trip are challenging - a 5:35 am meeting time at Termini station not the safest part of Rome, and we couldn't book a taxi for that early on a Sunday morning...maybe our fault for leaving the taxi booking till the night before?. The group was relatively small 14 tour guide and we caught the train at 6:05 am, with a light breakfast included. Unfortunately, due to rough seas, the boat portion was not possible and we took the train between each of the towns. We had 30 minutes in Vernazza, about an hour in Manorola, and about 1.5 hrs in Monterossa. We got back to Rome about 8 pm. The towns are beautiful, the views spectacular. I just found that the day seemed to be mostly spent on trains or waiting for the group to gather to catch a train and not enough in each town to truly appreciate it. It was not very relaxing, bordering on exhausting. Would I do this trip again? Not sure. If I thought I would never make it back to Italy, I probably would just to be able to see such lovely little towns. But this is not an ideal way to see Cinque Terre, and really doesn't do the towns justice. Would be far better to do this as a day trip from Florence or other closer location so there is more time to really enjoy the visit.

  • Absolutely wonderful. The view were fantastic and the overall ambiance was simply amazing.

  • Definitely worth getting up early for. The day was picture perfect. The breakfast idea was great except the coffee place needs to figure out that the travel cups need to be stronger. All the coffees were leaking. We just all grabbed another empty cup and put a cup inside a cup so it worked out fine. I think Italy is still getting use to the travel coffee idea. :-

    You do not stay long at each spot so you are watching your time throughout the day. Not sure that can be helped as it is just a day trip. I was disappointed that we only had one boat ride. The description noted two rides and seeing the land from the ocean was what I was looking forward to. Not sure why we took the train instead of doing the last boat ride. It may have been a timing issue getting back to Rome.

    All in all a great day was had by all!

  • A great way to see Liguria and Tuscany on the train from Rome in one day. Mattia, our guide, was extremely articulate and provided details on history, geography, and pertinent information about the sights throughout the entire day ALL FROM MEMORY without needing to refer to reference books or websites, Mattia was very friendly and eager to provide each member of the group with the best experience possible. His expertise and passion for all things Italian made an already great day a phenomenal experience. Highly recommend this excursion to anyone!
