Italy's Ligurian coast and the picturesque villages it encompasses are world-renowned for their beauty. On this 2-night trip from Florence, using the gateway resort of Santa Margherita as your base, you’ll set out to discover the wonders of the sun-drenched UNESCO-listed Cinque Terre coast, including three small coastal villages and the glitzy Portofino resort, a favorite among the glamorous celebrities of decades past including Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.


Day 1: Florence – Cinque Terre – Santa Margherita (L)
Depart from central Florence by coach and settle in for a 2.5-hour journey toward the remote Ligurian coast. Arrive in candy-colored Manarola, a tiny but breathtakingly romantic harbor village and one of the five Cinque Terre hamlets.

Perched precariously between the hills and the sea, the isolated setting of these settlements has helped them retain a traditional appearance and charm that may otherwise have been lost. Spend free time exploring Manarola, then meet with your tour leader to take a train the next village of Riomaggiore, where thanks to its inaccessibility, you can still observe an unspoiled and older way of life.

Proceed by boat to Monterosso (dependent on weather). During the journey, admire the views of tiny coves and rocky outcrops, which are best seen from the water. Upon arrival, enjoy time at your leisure to swim in the beautiful blue waters or to walk around the narrow stone walkways. Then, sit down for a 3-course Ligurian lunch that may include typical local dishes such as pasta with pesto.

In the afternoon, stop in La Spezia and catch a local train back to Santa Margherita, where you will check in to your 3- or 4-star hotel (dependent on availability).

Overnight: 3-star hotel or 4-star Hotel Lido Palace or similar

Day 2: Santa Margherita – Portofino – Santa Margherita
Use a round-trip ferry ticket to visit Portofino independently. Ferries run regularly throughout the day and into the early evening, departing from the pier in Santa Margherita.

Once a hotspot for the rich and famous, Portofino remains a glamorous resort, with an immaculate harbor filled with bobbing fishing boats and luxury yachts. Wander around its pretty main streets and elegant piazzas, which are dotted with art galleries, restaurants, cafes and designer boutiques. Return to Santa Margherita at your leisure.

Overnight: 3-star hotel or 4-star Hotel Lido Palace or similar

Day 3: Santa Margherita – Florence
After a morning spent at your leisure in Santa Margherita, depart for La Spezia by train. In La Spezia, hop on board a comfortable coach for the return journey to Florence. Your tour concludes in central Florence in the evening.
