This is the first day trip ever developed that lets you visit the Cinque Terre from Rome and be back in your hotel by bedtime. Using high-speed trains and a scenic boat cruise, you’ll explore three of the five towns on one of Italy’s most beautiful stretches of coastline, with around 6 hours on the ground. Along the way you’ll see the iconic colorful towns, admire old castle walls, snap some postcard-perfect photos, shop for souvenirs, enjoy local food, and if you want, even go for a swim.

Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful and famous stretches of coastline in Italy but it isn’t the easiest place to get to. In this world-first day trip we take care of all the logistics so you can visit this incomparable region from Rome in a single, breathtaking day. You’ll get around 6 hours on the ground in Cinque Terre.
Your day start early, catching the first high-speed train from Rome, along with a group of no more than 15 people and your expert tour leader. Take a nap and enjoy some breakfast onboard; with one small train change you’ll be in Manarola in less than 3.5 hours.
After a brief tour of the city you’ll make your way up the Strada del Amore (Lover’s Road) to take a few photos from one of the most famous vantage points in Italy. Trust us, you’ll recognize the view when you see it.
Then it’s onto a boat, heading down the jaw-dropping coastline for 15 minutes until you reach Vernaza, the quaintest, and most authentic of the Cinque Terre towns. Along the way you’ll pass the tiny town of Corniglia and marvel at its incredible location perched high above you on a clifftop.
In Vernaza you’ll have around 2 hours to spend as you please. Grab a snack, take in its old castle and the ancient town walls, or simply wander its narrow, winding streets. Then it’s back on the boat for a short jaunt down to Monterosso – the biggest town in Cinque Terre.
Here you have almost three hours to enjoy a leisurely lunch, shop for souvenirs, or even swim in the ocean and lay out for a bit of sun. You can also join your guide for a short hike up to the Capuchin Monastery after lunch.
After all this fun you’ll hop back on a train in Monterrosso and head back to Rome.
