As part of our Italian holiday we stayed in Florence but also wanted to walk the Cinque Terre trail. Walkabout tours offered us a great opportunity, to walk (part) of the trail with them as well as travel to Cinque Terre with our luggage.
By doing this we saved ourselves a couple of train rides, it was easy.
But to the tour... pick up at 08:00 in front of Florence train station, easy to find and the bus was waiting. A pleasant bus ride, with informative commentary by our guides Freddy & Sandra got us to Manorolo where we walked and then took a train to Corniglia from where we climbed the footpath known as Lardarina (377 stairs). At the top we walked to a small restaurant with a great view and an even greater lunch, delicious pesto pasta. From there we hiked 1 and a half hours on the track to Veranazza, not too hard and for those who can't there is always the train to take.
We had an hour there to do as we please then a train to Montorosso.
Because the weather was windy we didn't get to do the boat ride back to Riomaggiore but Freddy and Sandra treated us to a most acceptable alternative.
All in all a great day, very enjoyable and highly recommended.
But all this also due to Freddy and Sandra, compliments to you both.
