What It Is
This magical stretch of the Italian Riviera has been a protected area since 1999 when the Cinque Terre (Five Lands) National Park was founded.
Made up of 5 former fishing villages, perched between high cliff faces and lapped by waves on golden beaches, the National Park is undoubtedly an area of supreme natural beauty.
With almost no road access to these charming villages you'll have the chance to escape from the busy traffic and noise of urban life.
Departing bright and from your hotel in Pisa you will travel south to the farther side of the national park, La Spezia. From here you will continue your journey through the park by scenic local train or boat (weather permitting).
First stop inside the park is in Riomaggiore village, known for its colourful sea-side houses. As the tour continues you'll visit the villages of Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and finally Monterosso.
In each village your guide will introduce you to the location and give you some recommendations, then you'll be free to roam the quaint streets, walk to the beach, jump in the sea, or enjoy a typical Mediterranean meal in a local restaurant.
After visiting all five lands " of this national park you'll be picked up by your driver and return to Central Pisa.
