Even with just one day to spare in Florence, you can still experience the colorful seaside villages of Cinque Terre with a private driver to show you the way. Avoid a long train ride and relax on the drive from your Florence hotel to the Ligurian coast, where you’ll have free time to explore three of the five fishing villages that spill right into the sea. You can even opt for a boat tour to hop from one village to another the way locals do, soaking up postcard-worthy gulf and shoreline views along the way.

  • Easily access three different villages with the help of a private chauffeur

Private tour cost to worth the expense !
, Jun 2021
The private boat taxi we paid extra at the dock. We paid almost $900 US Dollars for a very friendly driver to drop us off at 9:45 am and pick us up @ 4:30 and do the scenes in our own.

Hellothank you so much for your feedback.We are really sorry to read your words of disappointment regarding one of our most loved and appreciated excursions to Cinque Terre, one of our favourite places on earth.Since your feedback means so much to us, we have thoroughly investigated the matter, speaking directly to your private driver.He confirmed that he took you first to Le Grazie, a hidden gem located just before the Cinque Terre National Park, where you could appreciate the peace of the ancient borough where time seems to have stopped. Then, he took you to Portovenere, another amazing village characterized by pastel-colored houses overlooking the Ligurian sea. He then suggested you to take a boat from Portovenere to Cinque Terre, and you accepted this offer. The boat is indeed the best way to appreciate the 5 villages, and also the fastest one. So with €15 extra per person you could add this incredible experience to your package, saving a lot of time since Cinque Terre are set between sea and mountains and reaching them by van takes a lot of time. Anyway your private driver was at your complete disposal and if you felt not comfortable taking the boat you just could tell him so that you would have continued the private tour by minivan.Also, when you met him again in Monterosso, the last of the 5 villages, he took you to Levanto as well, adding even more value to your experience. In any case, we highly value your feedback and we will treasure it in order to improve even more our services.Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, we wish you all the best
