Know More about this tour

Your 4-day Liguria tour introduces you to the coastal delights of Liguria in northwest Italy. Straddling the coastline from the French border down to Tuscany, the region is home to the so-called Italian Riviera, typified by sandy beaches and laid-back seaside towns. With a 4-star hotel in the region’s main town of Genoa as your base, your tour includes excursions to towns that sit both east and west of it along the Italian Riviera.

Travel west along the Riviera di Ponente coastline to visit the town of San Remo. Then, head east of Genoa to rugged Riviera di Levante, where mountains stretch down to meet the sea. The area was once notoriously hard to access, with some villages only accessible by boat. Your tour takes the hassle out of finding the best way around with all your transport worked out for you. Visit fishing-villages-turned-chic-resorts such as Portovenere, Camogli, Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure, and explore the charming villages that cling to the cliffs in the UNESCO-listed Cinque Terre.

Day 2: Genoa – San Remo – Genoa (B)
After breakfast, travel west along the north Italian coast to the elegant old seaside town of San Remo. Known for being the host of the annual Italian Song Festival, San Remo is a melting pot of both French and Italian culture, due to its close proximity to France. Take a stroll down the promenade or browse the boutiques near San Remo Casino.

After some free time for lunch (own expense), travel back to Genoa, passing along the pretty Riviera di Ponente – a stretch of coastline with glorious sandy beaches and shabby chic coastal towns. Finish your excursion with a drop-off at your hotel, and spend your evening at leisure.

Day 3: Genoa – Portovenere – Cinque Terre – Genoa (B)
Enjoy breakfast, and then head out to Portovenere, a quaint fishing village just south of the Bay of La Spezia. Make the most of your free time in the town, perhaps taking a walk down along the water’s edge, admiring the candy-colored pastel houses on one side of you, and colorful fishing boats bobbing on the other.

Meet your guide and hop aboard your ferry to travel to the Cinque Terre, a UNESCO-listed stretch of coastline that’s home to five picture-perfect fishing villages etched along the cliff face. On board you will pass Riomaggiore and Manarola. Dock in the town of Vernazza, and then explore at leisure. Either stay in idyllic Vernazza, or hop between villages using the local trains, at your own expense. Each Cinque Terre village has plenty of cafes and alfresco restaurants that are perfect for a relaxed lunch.

Return to your ferry at a pre-arranged time and cruise back to Monterosso. Board the train that will take you to Levanto and then swap to a coach to head back to Genoa, and spend the remainder of your evening doing whatever you please.

Day 4: Genoa – Camogli – Portofino – Santa Margherita Ligure – Milan (B)
Check out of your Genoa hotel after breakfast and travel south to the coastal town of Camogli. The handsome little town has long been a favorite vacation spot for Italians with sandy beaches and elegant architecture, typical of the old-school Liguarian towns.

After enjoying free time to look around and soak up the sights, continue south to the chic seaside resort of Portofino. Favored by Italy's rich and famous, Portofino is the ideal place to people spot or simply soak up the scenery. Stroll around the harbor or maybe visit Castello Brown (own expense), the city’s 16th-century castle.

Just across the gulf is Santa Margherita Ligure, a coastal town where the waters are frequented by dolphins. Enjoy some free time for lunch at one of the town’s renowned seafood restaurants, overlooking the bay, and then return to the coach for your journey back to Milan.

  • This tour was excellent and enjoyed it very much,we visited many beautiful small towns, Alesandro, our tour guide and driver is very knowledgeable about the places we visited and even gave us tips about local food.

  • Italian Riviera was amazing. The trip was a little rushed due to all the stops. Unfortunately it was a bilingual tour which we tried to avoid. Spanish dominant language and no whisper technology so you had to listen to both and stay close to guide and waste time. Our tour escort was pleasant but was an office worker who replaced main guide last minute and didn't offer much information. very disappointing for so much money.
