We had a wonderful day trip to the Cinque Terre on 9th sept with Alberto as our guide. We booked very last minute as we were let down by another company due to reduced numbers ( thank you Covid) but we were very glad that we did. Not only was this tour less expensive, we had Alberto as an expert guide throughout. I’m sure the capacity is normally much more but we were lucky enough to only have 10 on our tour and of that 6 did the hike.
I can’t express enough the importance of good shoes ( trainers or better) for the hike, even on our tour some people didn’t wear the right shoes and it made such a difference.
The weather was so hot (30 deg) and made the hike quite challenging but the lemon slushy half way and the gelato in Vernazza made it worth it.
Also definitely bring your swim suit and towel for a quick dip.
We really can’t recommend this trip enough to anyone wanting to visit the Cinque Terre.
Thank you Alberto!
