Tina says...
“The elegant Palace Hotel sits in a prime location in the heart of Viareggio’s bustling sea front. The lovely Belle Epoque style and grand public rooms brings to mind the glory days of travelling, and makes your experience so much more, with drinks on the roof top terrace watching the sun set over the sea a must!”
PACKAGED ITINERARY
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

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

Day 3 Cinque Terre
Today we travel to La Spezia where we meet our full day 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 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 the largest of the five Cinque Terre villages and we enjoy time at leisure here browsing the shops and enjoying a seafood lunch, before returning by train to Levanto.

Day 4 Lucca
This morning we enjoy a 90 minute 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 popular seaside resort of Rapallo from where 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 Rapallo. Please note, we may visit a different town depending on the departure point of the boat trip.
