Tour Overview Tour Overview

Keen on having a trekking experience in the Cinque Terre? Then our Private Cinque Terre Trekking tour is the best way to enjoy the stunning beauty of this area. Either on the easy Azure trail connecting Corniglia to Vernazza or on the most strenuous one connecting Corniglia to Manarola, the views you’ll have long the way are priceless. On both trails, you’ll pass the olive trees, vineyards and Mediterranean bushes. Suitable for all ages, only if fit enough to walk an average of 2 hrs on uneven terrain and with difference in altitude of an average of 650/800 ft.

Start your Private Tour with early pick up at your Florence accommodation by your English speaking driver - tour escort (a driver-tour escort drives and guides). When you arrive in Corniglia, a small village perched on the hillside, enjoy a walk along its narrow alleys and little squares. Take in the magical atmosphere and beauty of this little gem affording stunning views of the coast line. Here you’ll have the chance to buy food and drink supplies in case of need prior to starting your exciting walk to Vernazza. Your driver will take you to the start of the trail, give you your Cinque Terre card and will then meet you again in Vernazza. The trail is simple and well marked. Take your time as the views are magnificent, the nature is luxuriant, a true paradise. If you’d like to have with you a local environmental English-speaking guide to enhance your trekking experience, when booking you’ll have the chance to upgrade your tour at an extra cost.

Seeing Vernazza from the top of the hill, as you get close to the end of your trail, affords some of the most beautiful views you can dream of and is one of the main highlights of this Cinque Terre hiking experience. Take in the beauty of its natural pier with an amphitheater shape, making it the most picturesque village of the Cinque Terre. When you arrive in Vernazza, in summer months, enjoy some relaxing time on its stone beach and a refreshing swim in its blue sea before lunch. Then walk around its charming streets, stop by one of its coffee shops to relax and see the world go by and peruse its many little shops. Here in Vernazza you’ll meet up with your driver tour-escort that will give you information of the place along with recommendations where to get the best focaccia for a quick lunch. If you’d like to try the local cuisine and wines, we have selected a good restaurant. In this case this experience needs to be booked in advance.

Then, to conclude your day on the Cinque Terre, visit the village of Manarola that lies in a small valley, surrounded by terraced hills covered in vines and boast delightful pastel coloured houses and a charming little fishing port. Here celebrate your Cinque Terre Tour with a glass of the famous local wine before returning to Florence.

ALTERNATIVE HIKING ITINEARY

As a Private Cinque Terre Trekking Tour, we can customize this itinerary to suit your requirements. A popular alternative to the above itinerary would be to enjoy a hike from Corniglia to Manarola via Volastra for a beautiful trekking among the vineyards ,with an optional wine tasting in a local winery in Volastra. This hike is more difficult than the one suggested with an elevation gain of 1300 ft (400 meters) and a flight of steps (1200) at the start of the walk. While walking along this admirable trail, you will see the farmers looking after olive and grape trees on the dry land of Manarola and Corniglia. 2000 years ago, Volastra was called Vicus Oleaster that meant "the village of olive grove".

After the hike you would enjoy free time for lunch and / or wonder around the tiny village of Manarola. If you’d like to try out local specialties superbly made, let us know and we will book you in a restaurant where every plate is a symphony of flavors and it offers also some of the best views over the surrounding hills and coastline. On this second optional Cinque Terre Hiking Tour, we can include the visit of Vernazza as well for a morning coffee, only if you are ready to start your trip at around 6.30am. If you are interested in this option please contact our Sales Team for a customized quotation.
