Day Five

Today we will be joined by a guide for a journey into the wonderful and colourful world of Le Cinque Terre, the ‘Five Lands’. These quaint and incredibly scenic fishing villages can mostly only be visited by boat or train due to their location on the rugged coast of the Mediterranean. We’ll travel by boat via Portovenere and Vernazza to the delightful town of Monterosso, the largest of the five Cinque Terre villages with sweet-smelling lemon trees, olive groves and terraced vineyard. The village consists of two distinct parts; the new and old halves, and there will be free time here to browse and enjoy lunch before we travel by train to the popular seaside resort of Levanto then back to Viareggio.

This morning we travel to the lovely medieval walled town of Lucca, one of the oldest cities in Tuscany, where a guided tour has been arranged. Time at leisure follows for further exploration of the town’s beautiful churches, quaint narrow cobbled streets and pretty piazzas. We then continue on to charming Pisa, home to the world-famous Leaning Tower plus an array of jaw-dropping architecture including Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas.

We travel to Rapallo from where we enjoy a relaxing boat ride along the picture-perfect coast to idyllic Portofino, one of the most stylish resorts of the Italian Riviera with delightful pastel hued houses lining the harbour.
