Cinque Terre Photo Tour

Click Here to Book!


Day 1 (dinner)
On day one, we’ll meet in Florence before taking our private transport to Cinque Terre. After a class on Blue Hour Photography and Long Exposure, we dine in idyllic Manarola before tackling the iconic nighttime images of this beautiful town.

Day 2 (breakfast, dinner)
Following breakfast we begin the famous hike of Cinque Terre! We will spend the day hiking from Monterosso through Vernazza and on to Corniglia. Normally a 3-hour hike, we will spend approximately 8 hours on the hike photographing along the trail, as well as a long break in Vernazza for an open lunch. We return via train to Monterosso to freshen up before a classic Italian Riviera dinner. After dinner, we will tackle a short hike to the perfect vantage overlooking the town of Vernazza for sunset.  (For those who are unable to participate in part or all of the hike, there is a commuter train between all of the towns, as well as a Ferry between most of the towns. Ted will provide maps & train schedules for easy access photoshoot locations.)

Day 3 (breakfast, dinner)
Breakfast at the hotel followed by the final leg of the Cinque Terre Trail, Corniglia to Manarola. After completing the hike, there will be free time to grab lunch and explore whichever of these picturesque towns you desire for the remainder of the day. We meet back up at the Riomaggiore train station before a farewell dinner and our last sunset & blue hour shoot at the Riomaggiore harbor.

Day 4 (breakfast)
Waking up early, an optional sunrise shoot at Riomaggiore will end our trip on a high note. After breakfast on our final morning in Cinque Terre we’ll have a class on post-processing workflow.
