After your train journey above the great Ligurian Sea from La Spezia, you will disembark in the quaint fishing village of Vernazza. Famous for its pastel houses, crystal clear water and perfect harbor for a leisurely "passeggiata", Vernazza is the perfect first stop on your day in Cinque Terre.

Monterosso al Mare

Next after some free time in Vernazza, your small group will head to Monterosso, the largest town of the Cinque Terre. Here you can enjoy the beautiful white sand beaches, have a wonderful lunch by the water and take in the beaming Italian sunshine.

Limoncino Tasting

While in Monterosso you will enjoy a specialty made with the incredible local lemons of the Ligurian coast. Limoncino, a spirit distilled from the famous lemons that grow bountifully in the area is a treat that you'll love chilled on warm summer day at the beach. The people of Monterosso take their lemons very seriously, as they host a lemon festival dedicated to the local fruit each May.

Riomaggiore and Return to La Spezia

The final stop on the tour is the most southern of the Cinque Terre or "Five Lands" in Italian. Here you can experience incredible panoramic views as well as the the splendid harbor full of small traditional fishing vessels roped to the port. After taking a final few pictures of the vivid vistas, you will head back to La Spezia wrapping up this Cinque Terre adventure.

Did this tour with my mom while travelling with her across Italy! This was one of our favorite dates of the trip and we loved the Limoncino! I never knew the difference from Limoncello. My mother keeps talking about how fun this day was and she can't wait to go back.

Limoncino! So Cool!

We loved this trip to Cinque Terre. It was really well organized and we had a superb day. We really enjoyed the Limoncino (different than Limoncello we learned and now we will tell all our friends). We bought bottles for our friends and family to try, it was so tasty especially next to the beautiful beach!
