We took a private tour to CinqueTerre from Florence where we were staying for a few days. It was a great experience, first time there, and first time in Tuscany for me.
Weather was ok, not too warm but definitely not cold. We were told April is a bit risky but we were lucky enough!
Our driver Nicola was great, very kind man and our guide in Cinque Terre was very helpful and informative. We loved Manarola!!!
We would recommend your tour to our friends! Thank you.
