Fabulous day
, Jul 2022
Had a wonderful day at Cinque Terre. Such a picturesque and charming location. Arriving on the ferry for each town added to the impact. Luigi was a very personable and friendly guide. He recommended restaurants and shops that enhanced the experience.

Amelia from Pisa was an awesome guide. She was so informative and so enthusiastic. Would take every tour with her.
A perfect introduction to Cinque Terre

Our tour guide Elizabeth was wonderful. She made the trip very enjoyable. Her knowledge of each town was great. This tour was the perfect mix of guided tour and time on your own to explore. This was the perfect introduction to Cinque Terre.

The small group tour of Cinque Terre from Lucca is a must. The idea of a small group lent itself to a more personalized experience. The villages are beautiful, food exceptional and the beaches are breathtaking. Wear goof walking shoes, bring bathing suits and sunscreen.
Rosella is the BEST tour guide!
, Sep 2019
She knew how to efficiently navigate us from village to village. Her English is great, easy to understand. Very knowledgeable, helpful and fun personality! Would definitely do a tour with her again.

Once in a lifetime tour

Awesome tour of an awesome area with an excellent guide (Marta). BellaItalia organizes a wonderful tour of this area, including boat cruise from Monterosso to Porto Venere along the whole coast of Cinque Terre. Loved it!!!
Amazing Day !

This was the best Viatour trip we have ever done. It was small group so we paid more but worth it. Our guide Ariana was the best of the best. She was personable, funny , conscientious, knowledgeable , and overall a great guide. We loved her. The beauty of Chinque Terre was breath taking. I just wish we could have stayed longer at one of the Villages. A reason to go back , right ?? Don’t miss it. Ask for Ariana.

We were very fortunate with the weather on this tour as the sea was calm enough to travel between towns by boat it wouldn't have been the same if we'd shuttled from town to town by bus or train. Approaching by boat gives you a totally different perspective on the towns, which cling to precipitous slopes in a charming fashion. Speaking of slopes, I have to say, having met a large man with bad knees, these are not places for anyone with mobility or weight issues there will be problems in negotiating slopes and many narrow staircases. We had two guides - one for the trip to the Cinque Terre, who was good on local colour and one for Pisa and back to Lucca, who was good on history, so all bases were covered. Four stars, because the trip is highly don't-miss recommended, but I'm not sure what a trip would have to involve to be amazing.

The sights were great but we spent far too much time waiting for the boats. In some cases we spent 40 minutes visiting a village and 30 minutes standing in the sun on the pier waiting for the boat. This happened a couple of times, which was frustrating as the day went along. It was a case of hurry up and wait. On the final stop, we were sitting in a park enjoying the views and taking it all in, and she asked us if we wanted to wait in the van seeing as how we were back at the meeting place early. Given a choice of a shady park bench with views of the harbour or inside a hot van we, of course, chose the bench. Disappointed that she seemed to want the day to finish as early as possible.

A lovely excursion by small van. Our guide was delightful and the rest of the travelers as well. The boat trip provided the opportunity to see the coast from the sea, and get a better view of all the villages. Because we went in high season I'd hoped September would have had less tourists, the little towns were very full of tourists so it was a bit hard to get a flavor of life there without the mobs ourselves included, of course! of visitors. Our guide and driver made it so the van picked us up in a flat area so we never had to contend with all the steep steps going up to the road.

This was a great way to see the area in one day. My husband and I had been to Cinque Terre before, staying in Manarola where we had days to wander about the villages. This time, we traveled by ferry to 3 of the villages and then on to Porto Venera, which we had never seen. Our guide was enthusiastic and personable. The drive from Lucca to the coast was pleasant. The only downside was not having a lot of time in each village. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting a one-day experience.

This was an amazing trip! Worth every penny! It was very crowded in the different towns but our guide was exceptional at giving us tips to avoid the crowds. All the work is done for you... ferry tickets already need to worry about parking or navigating tiny streets. You truly get to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery! Very low stress and extremely enjoyable!

, May 2017
Michele Leoni led this tour for us. The tour was indeed a small tour, since the other tourists failed to show up at their pick-up location. So we had the driver and the tour guide all to ourselves. This made the trip extra special. We could ask away which we did. Michele is a source of information. He had been in the travel industry for several years in Milan and returned to his home in the Pisa-Lucca area to start up the guide business. His knowledge of history, geology that included the Pisa City State, Genoa City State, the Ottomans, etc. made for a very interesting time as well as learning the role that the Cinque Terre towns played in history. We followed the lovely coastline where we saw the Tyrrhenian Sea, marble quarries, the Apennines, olive orchards, wildflowers and vineyards. We drove through the interesting town of La Spezia, where a thriving city and port town exists. The road began to become twisty as we rose along the shoreline. We eventually ended at the small town of Riomaggione. Michele gave us a quick tour and let us explore for an hour. The town is quite small and doesnt take too long to see everything, but it did allow time for a much needed pastry and coffee! Due to strong winds, the boats were not running, so we took the train to our next stop, Vernazza. Michele bought are train tickets as we followed him to the train. Again, we were given a brief tour and left on our own for an hour. The town was almost identical to Riomaggione, with the one main road in town plunges down the hillside into the sea. We did explore the town and did find a bit of the famous Cinque Terre hiking trail that connects the various towns. We did engage in that for a short while and admired the views of the town and sea. Michele was working hard the entire time hoping to get us on a boat. He succeeded! He bought our tickets as we rode one of the first boats of the day to Monterosso al Mare. This town was considerably larger and more interesting than the other two towns. We were again given a brief overview and had an hour to explore. He had just enough time to find a place for lunch and walk around a bit. Michele then got us tickets on a boat ride all the way back to Portovenere. We were able to see all the towns that comprise the Cinque Terre as well as a few dolphins that decided to perform for us. We had a bit of time to explore Portovenere. We saw the church on the edge of the sea, wander its narrow streets and return to the port area. The driver was summoned and came for us as we drove back to Lucca. Michele indicated that the amount of folks that we encountered was as heavy as what is experienced in the summer. It was due to fabulous weather and being a holiday. Unfortunately, we got caught up in the post Easter traffic that tied up traffic for hours. Both Michele and the driver were most patient. The driver was also very courteous and a safe driver. The van was a Mercedes air-conditioned van. It was quite comfortable. This was the second tour that we took through BellaItalia Tours first being the small group to Siena and San Gimignano that we had booked via Viator. It is obvious that they take great pride in making certain that we, as their customers, are satisfied with a quality tour. Thank you!!

Wonderful day spent with friends on the Small Group Tour of the Cinque Terre. Our guide, Emilia, was amazing and was so full of energy and knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour.
