Day 1 Genoa
Arrive into Genoa and transfer to your hotel. This afternoon discover this bustling port city at your leisure. Explore the maze of alleys and historic buildings in the extensive old town, marvel at the grand piazzas and visit a traditional trattoria for a taste of the renowned Ligurian cuisine.
Day 2 Genoa to Portovenere
This morning your private transfer will take you along the picturesque coast of the Italian Riviera to Portovenere. This charming medieval town will be your base for the next three nights. This afternoon, explore at your leisure. Wander along the charming harbour, visit the town’s historical landmarks, such as Doria Castle, or sample traditional Portovenere cuisine at one of the many lively restaurants.
Days 3-4 Cinque Terre
Spend two full days exploring the Cinque Terre fishing villages. Start each morning with a ferry ride, booked locally, to your desired starting point before walking the scenic coastal paths that connect the villages. The most popular trails are between one and two miles with some steep, uneven sections, so remember comfortable footwear and plenty of water. If you fancy a rest, the Cinque Terre train is a quick and convenient alternative for exploring the villages. Buy the Cinque Terre Pass locally for unlimited train travel and access to the walking trails. First discover Riomaggiore, perched precariously on a cliff with picturesque, pastel houses winding down a steep ravine. Sample exquisite local wines in romantic Manarola and climb up to Corniglia, the highest of the five villages. Explore the steep, cobbled caruggi alleys of Vernazza and finally enjoy a rest on Monterosso’s beach.
Day 5 Portovenere to Pisa
This morning bid farewell to the pictureperfect landscapes of the Cinque Terre and take a private transfer to Pisa. Spend the afternoon discovering this vibrant city. Visit the world-famous Leaning Tower, explore the narrow streets and grand architecture of the old town, and later enjoy delicious Tuscan classics at one of the many restaurants.
Day 6 Pisa
It’s your final day, why not take a relaxing stroll along the River Arno, before heading to the airport for your flight home. Alternatively, perhaps continue your adventure by heading out into the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Ask your travel consultant for more details.
