Beyond Cinque Terre & Gulf of Poets

This tour provides an extended exploration of Cinque Terre’s beauty, encompassing additional coastal villages that are equally breathtaking. Nested on a rock hill, the tour not only showcases Cinque Terre but also introduces you to the similarly designed coastal villages of Portofino, Rapallo, and Santa Margherita Ligure.

  • Renowned for its charming harbor and vibrant-colored houses, Portofino is a symbol of Italian Riviera elegance. Often frequented by celebrities, this small fishing village is perfect for a leisurely stroll through its narrow streets, indulging in shopping at upscale boutiques, or simply enjoying a delicious meal at a seaside restaurant. It’s a place where the glamor of modern life meets the simplicity of coastal living.
  • Rapallo is another gem along the Italian coast, offering both historical and natural attractions. Its famous castle by the sea and the beautiful promenade lined with palm trees make Rapallo an enticing destination for history and nature lovers alike. Visitors can take a cable car ride up to the Sanctuary of Montallegro for stunning views or explore the town’s rich artistic heritage.
  • Santa Margherita Ligure is a graceful resort town known for its elegant architecture, lush gardens, and maritime flair. The town provides a perfect blend of relaxation and exploration, with opportunities for sailing, diving, or simply soaking in the sun at beautiful beaches. Its picturesque harbor is dotted with fishing boats and yachts, encapsulating the essence of the Italian Riviera.

You will also go to the picturesque, artsy, and vintage locales of Portovenere, Lerici, and Tellaro, with a final relaxing stay in Lunigiana, a land of greenery, forests, and historical castles and Borgos.

  • With its narrow lanes, steep staircases, and dramatic cliffs, Portovenere provides a visually stunning experience. This UNESCO World Heritage site boasts a historic church perched on the edge of a cliff and a fortress offering panoramic views. The charm of Portovenere is in its raw and rugged beauty, and it is a gateway to the nearby islands of Palmaria, Tino, and Tinetto.
  • Lerici is famous for its imposing castle that dominates the landscape and offers breathtaking views over the Gulf of La Spezia. This seaside town offers sandy beaches, scenic hiking trails, and a charming historic center filled with narrow alleys and traditional Ligurian houses.
  • A hidden gem along the coast, Tellaro is a small fishing village that has preserved its authentic charm and character. Narrow alleys, colorful houses, and the sound of waves create a magical atmosphere that seems untouched by time. Here, you can truly escape the modern world and immerse yourself in a lifestyle that celebrates simplicity and beauty.
  • Finally, a historical region crossing the border between Tuscany and Liguria, Lunigiana, is often called the “Land of a Hundred Castles.” Its rich history, dating back to the Etruscan and Roman times, has left a legacy of castles, churches, and medieval fortifications scattered throughout its verdant landscapes.
