“The Palace Hotel is an elegant hotel for the discerning traveller, set in a premium location on Viareggio's bustling promenade with its own rooftop bar offering stunning views, from where you can watch the sun set with an Aperol Spritz!"
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Viareggio Driver's Day Off
Today we enjoy a day at leisure. Once a fishing village, Viareggio is now a thriving resort with a long beachside promenade and shops and there is plenty to explore.

Day 3 Cinque Terre
Today we travel to La Spezia where we meet our full day guide, and drop into the wonderful and colourful world of Le Cinque Terre, the ‘Five Lands’. These quaint and incredibly scenic fishing villages can only be visited by boat or train due to their location on the rugged coastline of the Mediterranean. We travel by boat to Monterosso via Portovenere and Vernazza. Monterosso is a sumptuous village with plenty of opportunity to browse the shops and enjoy a seafood lunch, before returning by train to Levanto.

Day 4 Lucca
This morning we enjoy a 2.5 hour guided tour of beautiful Lucca, which will give us an introduction to one of the oldest cities in Tuscany. The elegant Old Town is still enclosed by its ancient city walls and is home to a maze of narrow cobbled streets, stunning churches, chapels and Lucca Cathedral with its magnificent Romanesque facade. After our tour we have time at leisure to explore before making our way to Fattoria il Poggio for a fantastic lunch!

Day 5 Portofino
We spend today visiting the most fashionable and stylish resorts of the Italian Riviera! We travel to the palm-lined resort of Santa Margherita. From here we enjoy a relaxing boat ride along the coast, around the headland and into the chic and famous resort of Portofino, where we spend time at leisure before returning by boat to Santa Margherita.

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
