What to Expect
After greeting your guide in central Florence, board an air-conditioned coach destined for the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its colorful seaside towns. The first stop is Riomaggiore, replete with pastel-colored buildings and cobbled streets that are best revealed on a walking tour. Then, continue to Manarola to stroll around the harbor and snap photographs of the houses that cling to the cliffs. Travel to Monterosso by boat where, if you’ve upgraded to include lunch, you can enjoy seafood and pasta accompanied by wine at a local restaurant. Opt to sunbathe and swim at a nearby beach before you continue to Vernazza, known for its olive-oil production.   Your guided tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point in Florence. Note: Cinque Terre low-cost option does not include train and boat tickets.

I went on this tour mid October 2019. It cost me E95, plus E20 for lunch. I took a taxi to the bus terminal which is kind of behind the main train station and can be accessed quickly once you know where you are going. I got there and it was chaotic trying to figure out whom I

Response from CiaoFlorence, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at Cinque Terre Day Trip with Transport from Florence
Responded 27 Jan 2020
Dear customer Thank you very much for your good and detailed feedback which, we are sure, will be helpful for other travellers. We would like to kindly clarify the last point because it is clear that you totally misunderstood and the way it is written might confuse who reads this review: the new staff was not a tour leader and not part of our team but a person working for the public train company who was not fully informed about the groups leading on a train. In fact Costantino, left his credit card just for not wasting his clients' free time, he then took the group to the lunch place and off he got back to the train station to get his card back while, in the meantime, the new girl was explained everything and the quid quo pro was dissolved. For the restrooms: all the coffee stores (bar) must have one toilet and this is available for whom buys something. It is not possible to use the toilet in other stores. Once again thank you and, should you come back to Italy, you will be welcome on board again! Kind Regards Ciaoflorence Staff

One of the most beautiful place I have seen in Italy. A must do tour. Our tour guide Tabata was wonderful. She kept us moving so we could see everything and catch the trains to next village. Was a great tour. Ask for Tabata’s tour for this.

Must see this area, it was a perfect day. Although I'm sorry to say that our tour guide wasn't very helpful as we were always looking for her at meeting points instead of the opposite. Happy to say though that this didn't ruin the most beautiful sites!
