Saturday: Montalcino Or 5 Terre
On day two, you could choose between Montalcino and 5 Terre. You can either spend your day in Montalcino, and spend the whole itinerary in Tuscany, or choose 5 Terre, so you can travel beyond Tuscany.
5 Terre: If I told you that in three days, you will also visit another region of Italy, would you believe me? Yes, it is! If you choose the tour of the 5 Terre, you can visit a part of Liguria too. This tour will allow you to admire suggestive and very colorful landscapes! The Cinque Terre tour starts from Florence. Since the tour starts at 7am you will have enough time to enjoy the views and activities.
You’ll first reach Manarola, a tiny urban jewel characterized by Genoese style ‘case-torri’. Then you will move to Vernazza, a village overlooked by the remains of a Medieval castle with a cylindrical tower in which you can enjoy some free time. After that, with a boat ride, you will reach Monterosso, known as the ‘pearl of Cinque Terre’. And at the end of the day, we will all get back to Florence. Read full information about 5 Terre tour.
