From Porto Venere, travel to the UNESCO-listed Cinque Terra National Park in Liguria, a rocky coast dotted with charming villages. Take in the sea views and the Genovese-style 'case-torre' in Manarola. Continue to Vernazza to visit the remains of the medieval castle, then to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village.
Spend free time as you see fit in each town, basking on the sunny beaches, swimming, sampling limoncino ligure, or eating at one of the many seaside restaurants.
Return to Florence for drop-off at your original departure point in the evening.
