Details about this tour
This Cinque Terre tour starts in the heart of the village, first exploring down by the marina before taking the path that runs beside the sea. Along the way, well take in beautiful views of the coast on both sides (keep those cameras handy), but this is only the beginning!
Well then catch the local minibus that takes us right to the top of the hill above Manarola, to another village, called Volastra. Theres some gorgeous nature up here, with olive trees, lemon trees, and vineyards this is the Mediterranean paradise youve been dreaming of! This pretty place is also where were going to start our hike.
Almost immediately, well take in the first views (and dare we say it, the best birds eye view) of the Cinque Terre area with hundreds of farm terraces on the hills and the stunning blue Mediterranean Sea in front of you.
Well hike for about 1.5 to 2 hours before we reach Corniglia, the middle village of the Cinque Terre and our spot to relax. After a short stroll past the coloured houses, we'll take a walking break to taste the best local products, all included on the house as part of your Cinque Terre adventure. Were talking about Ligurian olives, anchovies, pesto,focaccia, and Cinque Terre wine and these are just some of the delicious things that will tickle our palates!
After these tasty bites, well head back downhill to the train station, where the tour ends.
