Genoa Shore Excursion - This full day shore tour visits the stunningly beautiful Cinque Terre. You will travel by vehicle, train and boat plus hike along paths carved into cliffs high above the sea. The Cinque Terre is a bucket list destination for people around the globe.

The Cinque Terre, or Five Lands, is one of Italy's most idyllic seaside cluster of villages. The Cinque Terre is now a National Park that encompasses about 10 miles of the rocky coastline. Within the park are five villages tucked away in small inlets or perched on rocky promontories. Time has stood still for these five villages, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Until the last hundred years they were not even accessible by car or train, but only by boat or foot paths. As a result the residents adapted to their natural surroundings. Buildings start at the sea and climb the cliffs towards the sky, and terraced hills have been cultivated with vineyards and olive groves.

After meeting your guide and driving to the Cinque Terre, your first stop is the village of Manarola. You'll enjoy a walk of the enchanting village with its tiny fisherman's wharf before heading onto the Lovers Walk or Via dell Amore. This is an easy 25 minute walk that is carved into the steep rocks which rise dramatically out of the sea. You will be thrilled by the Mediterranean scenery with the bluest water, herbal aromas and fascinating isolated inlets.

This footpath leads you to Riomaggiore, the oldest village in the Cinque Terre. After taking time to explore Riomaggiore you'll take a boat to Vernazza (or by train in the event of high winds).

In Vernazza you have free time to explore the local shops and enjoy lunch (meal not included) as you marvel at this picturesque village huddled around its small harbor.

Later this afternoon you'll return by local train (or boat) to La Spezia and then by your private vehicle back to Genoa.
