To say that Cinque Terre is an absolute must-see when visiting Italy is the biggest understatement. Anyone who has gotten the chance to set foot on this part of the country will tell you that Cinque Terre is a world of its own—a place to spend a lot of time in instead of being a mere side trip after you’ve exhausted the majority of your holiday energy (and budget) on other cities.

Cinque Terre luxury tours are perfect holiday options for families, couples, and groups who want a different taste of Italy. The name of the place literally translates to “five towns,” which refers to the scenic, cliff-side villages that span Italy’s Ligurian Coast. Only 2.4 to 3 hours by train from Florence, a great deal of exciting things await visitors to Cinque Terre, from its towering cliffs to its candy-colored cliffside buildings, rocky coast, and historic landmarks.

Cinque Terre is a breathtaking string of old seaside villages, each with their own unique offerings. Cinque Terre tours cover most if not all the must-see attractions of these fantastic coastal towns, starting with the beautiful Vernazza to the equally exquisite and laidback towns of Monterosso, Manarola, Corniglia, and Riomaggiore. If it is the beach that you are after, Monterosso lends superb stretches of sandy enclaves, but those who want a more adventurous time should definitely focus their trip on Riomaggiore, where greater opportunities for adventure-filled activities await.

Book guided tours Cinque Terre if you want a deeper appreciation of the region, which on its whole, is a world heritage site that dates back to as early as the 1200s, with each village and landmark telling a different story of that fits perfectly into the region’s history that is equally as colorful as its cliff-side structures.
