From Florence my friend and I booked a day tour to Pisa & Cinque Terre, these destinations are worth a visit if you’re going to Italy. Pisa is famous for its historical leaning tower of Pisa with thousands of tourists visiting the site on a daily basis. Cinque Terre is an old village that splits into five towns: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza & Monterosso. On the tour we visited three out of the five towns of Cinque Terre, the towns are small so there wasn’t much to do there besides taking a quick dip, take some snapshots, eat some Italian cuisine and have a shop.
I will provide information about Pisa & Cinque Terre along with photos below of my trip!
Pisa is a one hour train ride coming in from Florence and to Cinque Terre from Pisa is an hour or more train ride depending on which town you want to visit.
