    Itinerary:

    Day 1
    After check in you can visit La Spezia, one of the most important Italian naval ports and arsenals, which has made this city a site of considerable historical significance since the mid-19th century.
    La Spezia has plenty of quality shops, restaurants, and bars and the vibrant harbour, with its picturesque boats, that links Cinque Terre to La Spezia and to the rest of Italy.

    Day 2
    We take a “hop on, hop off” train today to Cinque Terre, which gives you the chance to see each of the five beautiful villages as much as you like over the course of the day.
    The Cinque Terre, five towns, is a string of five fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera which until recently were linked only by mule tracks and accessible only by rail or water. An ancient system of footpaths is still the best way to visit the five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.
    The Cinque Terre is noted for its beauty. Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces to cultivate grapes and olives on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the Mediterranean Sea. The breath-taking views of harbours far below the wild but hospitable coastline along with the medieval fortresses and plentiful vines and vibrant colours make this a memorable holiday.
    The Cinque Terre, recognised in 1997 by the Unesco Mankind’s World Heritage, are today a National Park and Protected Marine Area with the aim of protecting this great cultural heritage and natural environment.

    Day 3
    After a typical Italian breakfast, you can leave your luggage at our accommodation. Then we’ll take the ferry with our guide to see the beautiful Porto Venere in the Gulf of Poets, famous for its castle, houses, churches and the picturesque islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto which have numerous caves.
    Among its many famous visitors, Lord George Gordon Byron spent a long time at Porto Venere in 1822. It is said that he once swam across the Gulf to Lerici, to visit his friend and poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, who died shortly afterwards in a storm off the coast of Viareggio.
    While here you can visit the local shops while wandering through the narrow alley ways, taking in the brightly coloured houses, and sampling some of the local dishes.
    In case of bad weather we will take a taxi to Porto Venere.
