Embark on a tailored journey by bus, train, and boat through Tuscany and Liguria along the iconic Italian Riviera. Cruise through Cinque Terre and stop at seaside villages, exploring their unique beauty and admiring breathtaking Italian views.

Start your journey through Tuscany and Liguria on an air-conditioned coach, as your guide entertains you with local tales. Set off on a coastal cruise, taking in the scenery of the Italian Riviera. Breathe in the fresh sea air as you sail through Poet's Gulf into the town of Portovenere. Get off the boat and wander through its streets, admiring Italian beauty present on every street corner.

Continue your voyage down the Ligurian coast to the UNESCO-listed Cinque Terre National Park. Marvel at centuries-old homes perched along uneven hillsides, before stopping at Monterosso. Choose to take a light hike through terraced vineyards and ancient olive groves to enjoy brilliant panoramas of the Italian countryside. Return to Monterosso to stroll the streets, shop in town, and sample the local cuisine. You can even take a swim before the journey by train to Manarola.

Then it is “all aboard!” as you are taken by train to the charming town of Manarola. Here you’ll be dazzled with views of the tiny harbour, full of colourful boats and vibrant natural formations. Once again, take your time to amble around the area on your own and discover everything fate has in store for just you

The coastal towns where beautiful. I just wish we had gotten to see more. The rail was on strike so that was the blame for taking a boat around which took longer so you spent less time in port. And even skip a couple ports. Just bad timing I guess.
