Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Pisa

​Depart on your scheduled flight to Pisa today. On arrival you'll transfer to your hotel in the exclusive Tuscan resort of Forte dei Marmi for a seven-night stay. Relax here or maybe take a stroll across the road to the beach, before dinner this evening.

Day 2 Carrara

​Today we include a visit to Carrara to see how the area's beautiful white or blue-grey marble is quarried. You'll visit the quarry itself, where the shimmering marble is a spectacular sight, and a marble workshop where you'll see how this high-quality material, which was used to create some of the most remarkable buildings in Ancient Rome, is used in sculpture today. We also include a visit to the Marble Museum where you'll see statues, archaeological finds and machines used to process marble.

Day 3 Lucca & Pisa

Spend today at leisure enjoying the facilities at your hotel or exploring Forte dei Marmi at your own pace. Alternatively, why not join our full-day optional excursion by coach, which takes you firstly to Lucca, which boasts some of Italy's finest examples of medieval and Renaissance architecture and is said to be one of Tuscany's best kept secrets. The town is famous as the birthplace of the composer Puccini. It is also the home of the Volto Santo relic – a wooden sculpture of Christ – which is kept in its beautiful cathedral.​
You'll continue to Pisa where you will see the famous Leaning Tower. One of four buildings which make up the cathedral complex and what is known as the Field of Miracles, the tower took 176 years to complete and began to lean shortly after construction.​

Day 4 Cinque Terre

​Today's included full-day excursion by coach and train takes you to the enchanting area known as the Cinque Terre. This translates as Five Lands and refers to the five villages which perch precariously on the cliffs high above the Mediterranean Sea and are almost all inaccessible by road.

Day 5 Lerici & Portovenere

​Enjoy some free time in Forte dei Marmi. You could explore the surrounding area, spend a lazy day on the beach or relax by the swimming pool.

Alternatively, why not join our optional excursion, which begins in the beautiful village of Portovenere, sat atop a rocky peninsula in the 'Gulf of Poets', an area once very popular with writers such as Byron, Shelley and DH Lawrence. Highlights are a picturesque harbour lined with brightly coloured houses and an impressive stonebuilt castle. Next, you'll head to the beautiful seaside town of Lerici, home to an imposing castle, a small historic centre and a crescent-shaped piazza.

Day 6 Portofino & Santa Margherita

​After breakfast join us on our included three-quarter-day tour to Portofino, which we reach by local boat service from Rapallo along a pretty coastal stretch. 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. Take a stroll among its snaking streets to the Church of St Giorgio, which is a short distance from the harbour. From here the views across the bay are quite spectacular.

You'll also visit the picturesque seaside resort of Santa Margherita, which is home to a lovely palm-fringed harbour that's a magnet for small yachts.

Day 7 Genoa

​Spend today at leisure exploring the resort of Forte dei Marmi, or enjoying the facilities at your 4-star hotel, which is just steps away from the sea on the beautiful Versilian Riviera.
Alternatively, if you want to discover even more, why not join an optional excursion to Genoa. This large port city, with its twisting maze of narrow streets is famous as the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and its maritime history spans centuries. Your guided tour will take you past a diverse mix of contemporary, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, grand palaces and a host of museums and galleries.

Day 8 Pisa/UK

​After breakfast today we'll transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK.​

Italy - Lerici and Portovenere

FROM £70

Enjoy a full day excursion in the company of a local guide. We start the day by following the coast to Portovenere which is a delightful little port on the Ligurian coast with its colourful medieval houses and sea-front fortress. You will have free time to explore this most romantic village with its pastel painted houses that cluster around the harbour or you can wander along the pretty waterfront promenade, with nearby Byron’s Grotto an inspirational spot for the famous poet.
Our next stop is the town Lerici which is located in the glorious Bay of La Spezia, famous for its natural beauty. This picturesque village dates back to medieval times when, under the rule of Pisa, it fought cross-bay battles with Genovese Portovenere as well as with local pirates. The town is set on a magnificent coastline of grey cliffs jutting down into a crystal-clear sea and surrounded by a national park that is nearly an unframed painting of pine forests, olive trees, and tiny colourful hamlets. The waterfront piazza is filled with trompe-l'oeil frescoed buildings and seaside cafés where you can sit and admire the charming harbour.

Full Day – Moderate Walking – Picturesque

Italy - Pisa and Lucca

FROM £69

Head to Pisa to see its famous Leaning Tower. This bell tower resides in the Field of Miracles beside an amazing collection of religious buildings. Head inside the cathedral to see the marble pulpit created by the great sculptor Giovanni Pisano and nearby you’ll see a bronze lamp that according to a popular story Galileo was watching sway gently when the law of the pendulum occurred to him. Whether this tale is true or not, Galileo grew up here, so surely he was inspired by his surroundings. Continue to the perfectly preserved walled town of Lucca where you’ll find fine examples of medieval and Renaissance architecture, charming piazzas and even a tree-topped tower on a stroll through its historic centre.

Please note: Entrance fees are payable locally at the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the cathedral.
