EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: CINQUE TERRE FROM ROME IN ONE DAY!
This exclusive day trip is the first of its type, offering visitors to Rome a chance to explore Cinque Terre without planning a separate trip.
Travelling by high-speed train, you'll start at the town of Manarola for an introductory walk, then head to Vernazza for some free time, or an optional guided walk to a spectacular photo point. Finally, explore the beautiful streets of Monterosso, where you can, souvenir shop, enjoy a leisurely lunch, or take a dip in the sea.
BREATHE EASY: INCLUDES TRANSPORT & LOCAL GUIDE THROUGHOUT
Our Cinque Terre tours from Rome meet at Termini train station where our local guide will meet your small group of 15 people or fewer. Traveling together for the day, you’ll have loads of time to interact with your guide, ask questions and learn about Cinque Terre; from its long seafaring history to the tragic floods that recently wreaked havoc on these seaside towns.
Relax and enjoy your train ride, with a light breakfast onboard. In under 3.5 hours you'll be in La Spezia where you'll hop in a car for a quick, but very scenic ride to Manarola. Along the way you'll enjoy stunning views of the Cinque Terre from above, including vineyards and jaw-dropping sea views.
Manarola is the town you always see on Cinque Terre postcards. When you arrive we'll treat you to a welcome drink and a pesto tasting. Then, with your friendly guide leading the way, you’ll see exactly the spot where that famous photo is taken; from Via dell'Amore (‘The Road of Love’).
SOAK UP THE BEST VIEWS OF THE COASTLINE
After an introductory stroll in Manarola, you’ll board a ferry for the short ride to Vernazza (sea-conditions permitting). Along the way, you’ll catch a glimpse of Corniglia, a stunning town perched precariously on the edge of a cliff. To visit this tiny town you would have to climb 365 stairs, but from the water, you’ll get the best views without breaking a sweat.
TIME TO EXPLORE IN VERNAZZA
Vernazza is the most fun of all the Cinque Terre’s towns to wander. As the most authentic fishing town of the five, Vernazza has a wonderful, relaxed vibe. You can choose to either explore the town on your own for an hour or walk with your guide to a jaw-dropping viewpoint which is perfect for those vacation photos. Either way, you can't go wrong here.
MONTEROSSO YOUR WAY
A short train ride away is the final stop of the day; Monterosso. You’ll stop here for almost three hours, where you will be free to enjoy a leisurely lunch, shop, and wander the streets of the historic center. You can also go for a swim. Monterosso is the most developed of the towns we visit, making it the perfect spot for souvenir shopping.
Regroup afterwards to catch the high-speed train back to Rome. Arriving in the city at 8PM, you'll have plenty of time for dinner, so don’t forget to ask your guide for recommendations!
And there you have it, Rome to the Cinque Terre and back again in just one day.

Before you travel, please read our important notes about possible disruptions & site entrance requirements
The seas around the Cinque Terre are prone adverse boating conditions. Even if the weather is good, small amounts of swell can make the port at Vernazza unaccessible to ferries. If sea conditions are unfavorable day of your trip, the ferry will not run and we will travel by private car instead.
In good weather, it is possible (and enjoyable) to swim on Monterosso beach. We recommend bringing a bathing suit and towel if this interests you.
Infants (over 36 months) need to book the child ticket price.
