Cinque Terre are five tiny coastal villages very unique and famous, for their position and characteristic features. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all encapsulated in a national park of the same name.
These five villages are: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola & Riomaggiore. Each village of the Cinque Terre has its own sanctuary to which the local people are tied by a deep devotion.
The sanctuaries are joined together by the Via dei Santuari (Path to the Sanctuaries), which winds along the mounts behind the villages on the sea and testifies the very ancient religious roots of these places in which the people were farmers before being sailors.
Your private tour driver will escort you to one of the villages from where you will continue to explore each village on a boat ride or on board of the Cinque Terre Express.
You can pay for the small fee directly the day of your tour, admission is always available. But you won’t have to worry, your private tour driver will give you all the information you will need for the day. There are also walking trails connecting each village to its neighbors.
This picturesque trail winds along the shore, varying in nature and difficulty from an easy stroll to a rough and physically challenging hike.
The stretch from Manarola to Corniglia is also easy to hike, although the main trail into Corniglia finishes with a climb of 368 stairs. A trail from Corniglia to Vernazza is pretty sharp in some points.
Plus, it offers the best view of the bay and the spectacular approaches to both Vernazza and Monterosso.
At the end of the day your driver will be waiting for you at the pre-arranged meeting point to drive you back to your cruise ship. Keep in mind that your driver will always remain at your complete disposal in the area should you need assistance or wish to make any changes with your meeting point or time.
Please note: if you choose to hike from one village to the next, you should consider this beautiful walk only if you are well trained and in good physical shape.
*For a more enjoyable and relaxing time, consider the boat ride or scenic train transportation.
