In short, a Cinque Terre walking tour is not just sightseeing but authentic experience.
Our Italy Cinque Terre walks are conducted by local tourist guides, who takes you discovering the inside of the villages, main streets, monuments, hidden corners, telling stories about these unique people and their lifestyle through the centuries to make you catch the essence of the area.
The guided walking tours of 5 Terre can be of three types:
- Classic Cinque Terre walking tour: few efforts, relaxed strolling down the main streets, some shopping, sip a glass of wine, enjoy a gelato.
- 5 Terre Urban Hiking guided walk. This is what we call Urban Trekking tour. More activity, visit the main streets but also climb stairs to exploring the rest of the village and reach panoramic points, walk a short part of trails running around the villages.
- Hiking tours of 5 Terre: this walking on the trails between the villages. Of course, the villages will be visited but in between will be walked real mountain trail with uneven terrain, very challenging, very narrow, lots of up/down hills, huge steps, no railings.
