Tasting Cinque Terre

Private Group from

Explore the iconic Cinque Terre with all five senses as we embark on an afternoon adventure that introduces you to some of the best food and drink in the region (pesto! wine! calamari! The list goes on… ) and we show you where our favourite places are to soak up swoon-worthy vistas of the five towns as they meet the Mediterranean sea. We spend time exploring (and munching our way around) the stunning towns of Monterosso and Riomaggiore and we gaze adoringly at the remaining three towns from the bough of the local ferry. Go on, tick the Cinque Terre off your bucket list with us and do it right!

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
