The one day trip to Cinque Terre which I joined is a pleasant one
Would you like to enjoy an excursion between history and nature? Then, our tour of the Cinque Terre, departingfrom Milan, is the right choice for you. Accompanied by a professional guide you will have the opportunity to explore the towns of the Cinque Terre, one of the most charming areas of Italy.
Through the tour of the Cinque Terre, departing from Milan by bus, you will have the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful places in Italy, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The incredible scenery, the charming villages and the great food make a perfect setting for a truly amazing day trip.
The tour will start early in the morning from Milan, aboard a bus equipped with all comforts, to reach the Gulf of Poets (town of La Spezia). This nickname comes from the fact that over the centuries many poets, writers and artists have spent time in the villages of the gulf, enchanted by the beauty of this “water amphitheater”.
Accompanied by a professional guide, you’ll explore the beautiful village of Porto Venere, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007, whose name derives from a temple, dedicated to the goddess Venus of Erice, situated exactly in the place where today stands the church of San Pietro.
After the visit to the village of Porto Venere, you’ll embark on a boat that will take you to discover the beautiful town of Monterosso sul Mare. The village is situated at the centre of a small but quaint natural bay while the oldest part of the village gathered under the castle, in the valley of the river Buranco.
After visiting its charming alleys, churches and typical squares, you will have free time to continue your exploration or to have lunch surrounded by calm and tranquility.
After the lunch you'll take a train and, always accompanied by a professional guide, you’ll reach the stunning town of Vernazza: a picturesque medieval village dating back to the 1st century AD where you’ll admire tangible traces of that period.
In addition to the typical construction of private homes and the conformation of the village itself, you can admire the majestic Doria Castle and several beautiful churches.
The day trip will end with a short train ride to La Spezia, and from there you’ll take a bus to return to Milan.
