Detailed Description

Tuscany and Cinque Terre are among the most beautiful places in all of Italy. Your journey to discover the best cities and towns in the area will begin when you land at Florence International Airport. Your first activity in the city will come in the form of an evening tour of the Florence Cathedral. The next morning, you will explore the art of Florence with visits to the Uffizi and Accademia Galleries. The following day, you will travel to your next Tuscan destination of Siena, where a tour of Piazza del Campo will immerse you in the culture and history of the city.

As the sun rises over Siena the next morning, you will begin the scenic ride to your next destination of Lucca. Along the way, you will stop in the charming town of San Gimignano to explore. Once your tour concludes, you will continue your ride through the region and arrive in Lucca. The next day, you will enjoy an excursion to the delightful city of Pisa.

You will then set your sights on the beautiful Cinque Terre region. Gorgeous landscapes will surround you as you traverse the winding roads en route to Riomaggiore. When you arrive, your guide will lead you on an afternoon tour of Riomaggiore and Manarola. The next day, you will explore the final three towns of Cinque Terre: Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso al Mare.
