Romantic full-day private tour discovering Cinque Terre from La Spezia, Unesco heritage site: a cultural landscape of great scenic and cultural value. Historic, spectacular borgoes overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
The Cinque Terre offer uncontaminated landscapes and medieval borgoes well preserved. This full day tour starts leaving the Gulf of Poets, crossing a panoramic itinerary overlooking the sea, between hills and rocky upland, where you can discover Manarola e Vernazza that will amaze you with their colours in a dreaming landscape.
Arrive in La Spezia on your own, seafaring town situated inside the famous Gulf of Poets. Meet your private guide at the train station and, from La Spezia, you will catch the train to Manarola.
You will be amazed by Manarola borgo in the Cinque Terre Unesco heritage, famous for the characteristic multi-coloured houses. You can enjoy a relaxing walk inside the alleys of the city centre and the rocks running out the sea, while your private guide will take care of showing you all the secrets of this area. Manarola is a small urban jewel founded in the 12th century: it takes its name after an ancient "magna roea", an imposing mill wheel present in the town. From there, you will take the boat (wheather conditions permitting)*, from where you will have the possibility to see Vernazza and Monterosso.
* Please note that the itinerary may vary according to weather conditions or technical/logistics problems; in these cases, the journey by boat will be replaced by a train one.
Once arrived in Monterosso, you will walk through the biggest and the oldest of the Cinque Terre's villages. It is full of cafes and restaurants, where you can have a tipical lunch (NOT included). After lunch, the walk continues towards the Aurora Tower until the train station from which you will reach Vernazza by train.
The train from Monterosso will arrive in Vernazza, a triumph of art and colours, rich of grades and natural terracing where you’ll have a stop to make some unforgettable photographs. From there, you will then take a train towards La Spezia, to finish your marvellous full-day tour in the Cinque Terre.
