Hi lovelies! This Summer I went travelling around Europe. I was able to tick off a few places on my bucket list and one of them was Cinque Terre. It is an amazing place that consists of five small seaside villages that is situated on the beautiful coastline of Italy and only a seven hour drive from my home. My trip was not planned at all and it was a spontaneous last minute decision to go travelling with my friend who was visiting from Australia. So this meant booking things each day and winging it! We did just that! The only downfalls were being left will limited options for accomodation, transport and tours because it was peak Summer and almost everything was booked out. However we were able to snap some bargains and make our trip enjoyable.

One of our most memorable days was a full day tour with Italy on a Budget tour group. Most tours were booked out and we had found this one was available on Viator.com. We were based in Florence and we wanted to get to Cinque Terre and Pisa in one day and this tour was exactly that. It was also the cheapest for only €98 each. We didn’t know what to expect but we knew it was going to be a long day. It started by meeting with the group at the Florence train station at 7am and finishing at 8pm. We were a group of 24 and we visited Pisa and three towns of Cinque Terre which were Riomaggiore, Vernazza and Manarola. In total we took 7 trains and one bus, stopping at each place (4 places) for an hour. We had a lovely tour guided called Margarita who was informative and organised. She provided us with general history about the towns and guided us to the main spots. Overall we had so much fun, got our iconic travel snaps and we met really nice people in the tour group from all over the world. I know the travelling sounds like a lot but it was definitely worth it and it would have been difficult to do this trip on our own so highly recommend going with a tour.
