Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Alassio

​After flying to Nice, we'll transfer you to Alassio, a seaside resort on the beautiful Italian Riviera. Your hotel boasts an enviable position right on the seafront and we'll enjoy a welcome drink together this evening. ​

Day 2 CHRISTMAS EVE Dolceacqua & Sanremo

​After breakfast we'll make our way to the ancient village of Dolceacqua. A river divides it into two districts which are connected by a pretty bridge, and you'll have some free time to look around and admire the 15th century castle perched on top of a hill.
We then move on to Isolabona for a wine-tasting and we'll round off our sightseeing in stylish Sanremo. Its Old Town is full of narrow streets and alleyways and the casino here was built in 1905. ​
Back at the hotel, a candlelit dinner will be served this evening.

Day 3 CHRISTMAS DAY Alassio

It's Christmas Day, so why not relax and enjoy a leisurely day at the hotel, or maybe go for a stroll along the beach. This evening there will be live music as we sit down to enjoy a traditional Christmas Day dinner with turkey and all the trimmings.

Day 4 BOXING DAY Monaco & Monte Carlo

After breakfast, we're going to make our way to Monte Carlo in nearby Monaco. Oozing glitz and glamour, Monte Carlo occupies a stunning spot between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, and the lavish Casino di Monte Carlo is one of Europe's finest examples of belle époque architecture. Enjoy some time to soak up the atmosphere and make your own discoveries.

Day 5 Portofino & Santa Margherita

You've a free day to do just as you please today, or if you want to continue exploring, there's an optional cruise to Portofino. What used to be a tiny fishing port is today the Italian Riviera's most exclusive resort offering designer boutiques and a fine selection of cafés and bars. You'll also visit the picturesque seaside resort of Santa Margherita, which is home to a lovely palm-fringed harbour.

Day 6 Alassio/UK

​After breakfast we will transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK​.
