Milan to Liguria, Cinque Terre, Genoa, Portofino 4-Day 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, Rapallo, Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure, and explore the charming villages that cling to the cliffs in the UNESCO-listed Cinque Terre.
