Travel by luxury coach to discover the famous Cinque Terre on a day trip from Lucca

This popular day tour is perfect if you have just a short time in Italy and want to discover more of the north and its many beautiful resorts. As a part of the day trip, you will travel by luxury coach (with air conditioning) to Liguria, where you can explore the idyllic Cinque Terre villages and Portovenere to experience sublime coastal landscapes and discover the diversity of Italy's culture.

The Cinque Terre coastline has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and features steep cliffs that flow down into the glistening waters of the Ligurian sea decorated with vibrantly coloured Italian villas. The areas is well known for its glorious views and beaches, as well as its romantic walking trails.

The first stop on this day trip from Lucca is Portovenere, an elegant and popular touristic destination where nature and human architecture are perfectly balanced. Here you will have free time to discover the many charming sights before the tour moves on through the Cinque Terre National Park. You will travel either by train or (weather permitting) ferry boat between the villages with your multi-lingual tour escort and you will have free time in Manarola, a tiny urban jewel characterized by Genoese style ‘case-torri’, Vernazza, where there is a Medieval castle, and Monterosso, known as the ‘pearl of Cinque Terre’. This ancient fishing village features a lovely beach with a quaint promenade and has a distinctly charming atmosphere.

After free time for lunch, you will have the chance to taste the local Limoncino in a traditional wine shop and then there will be free time to swim or take a walk around the village before the tour returns to Lucca.
