PRIVATE CINQUE TERRE TOUR PLUS LUCCA
This two-day tour from Florence features Lucca, one of the most graceful, charming and elegant cities of Tuscany, and the stunning seaside villages of the Cinque Terre, located on the rugged Ligurian Coast.
Day 1 – Private Transfer to Lucca, Private Tour of Lucca, Overnight in Lucca
Your private driver guide will pick you up from your hotel in Florence and take you on an hour’s drive to Lucca, the birthplace of composer Giacomo Puccini. Lucca, one of the most charming of Tuscany’s provincial capitals, is set inside a ring of well-preserved Renaissance walls. The wall is wide enough to hold small parks and a path along the top. Your tour guide will introduce you to Lucca’s fascinating and proud history of independence.
You will have an orientation walk of Lucca and its many treasures, from charming squares to beautiful churches. On your free time, you can walk the city walls, climb the Guinigi tower, and enjoy the shops at Via Fillungo. Must-see sights include the cathedral of San Frediano, where you can view the body of St. Zita in a glass coffin, and the site of the Amphitheatre, an elliptical Roman coliseum on which houses have now been built.
Day 2 – Day Trip: Cinque Terre, Return to Florence
Today you will have private Cinque Terre tour. It is one of the most beautiful coastlines of Italy. The charming villages of the Cinque Terre (meaning Five Lands) stretching along Liguria’s rocky coast are unforgettable: olive groves, vineyards, winding stone paths and enchanting beaches wedged between cliffs, fishing villages and colorful rooftops.
Your Cinque Terre private tour will start in Monterosso, the largest of the five villages. This lush green village is sheltered by hills covered with vineyards and olive groves. Its beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs and crystal-clear waters make this one of the most charming resorts on the Ligurian Riviera.
Your private Cinque Terre tour will continue with a short train ride to the village of Manarola. Your private tour of Manorala will take you along a beautiful footpath called La Via dell’Amore (the Lovers’ Pathway), which ends up in Riomaggiore, the last of the five villages. After this spectacular half-hour walk, you will have some free time for shopping and strolling around Riomaggiore before the journey back to Florence.
