Cinque Terre Tour

Private Cinque Terre Tour with English speaking drivers and luxury sedans, limos, minivans, minibuses

The Natural National Park of the Cinque Terre is one of the prettiest and most adored areas of Liguria and Italy in general. A rocky coastline of steep cliffs with a sheer drop to the blue sea below, small hamlets built along narrow gulfs where parts of the sea join the coastline, the paths which climb along the cliffs and which give marvellous panoramic views, the wisely cultivated terraces where delicious fruit and vegetables are produced: all of this makes the Cinque Terre an amazing place, a fairytale location. Reaching Riomaggiore, you can take a beautiful walk on trail 2, named “Via Dell’Amore”, to reach Manarola, from where you can take a ferry to Vernazza, passing by Corniglia.  The last stop is Monterosso al Mare, where you will enjoy stunning sceneries and breathtaking views, on a tour which allows you to discover this enchanting and charming corner of Italy.

FOCUS ON

Cinque Terre: Since 1997 the Cinque Terre has been an area protected by UNESCO, and since 1999 it has been declared as natural national park and marine reserve. The Cinque Terre include the communes of Monterosso, Vernazza and Riomaggiore, whereas Corniglia and Manarola, respectively, are fractions of Vernazza and Riomaggiore. The area has been lived in since Roman times, but it is after the year one thousand, having escaped the danger of Saracen invasions, that local populations began to cultivate the area which was more adapt and productive compared to inland, and so came down from the nearby hills and settled in the five hamlets that still characterise the territory. Living off of agricultural, mercantile and fishing activities, the localities of the area managed to develop and prosper so much, to the point where they were able to support the fleet of Genoa in its last battle against the marine republic of Pisa. The area, under the influence of the Republic of Genoa, very soon became part, following its fate in the centuries following. The Cinque Terre is an optimum area for the production of food, and also cooking. Amongst the many to remember are Sciachetrà, a liqueur-like wine, the very good olive oil, and Pesto, one of the typical dishes of Liguria.
