Full description
Depart Milan and travel to La Spezia by air-conditioned coach. Take in the lovely views of the Lombardy and Liguria countryside along the way. Catch the ferry to the seaside town of Portovenere, famous for its pastel-colored houses and stunning views from the ruins of Doria Castle. Get some time to sample the local pesto and other regional produce.

Next, cruise up the coast to see the Cinque Terre villages from a different perspective. Marvel at the brightly painted houses that cling to the cliffs of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia and Vernazza. Drop anchor at Monterosso to sample the local food and wine, such as fresh mussels and DOC white wine. Wander the little alleys and go on an optional hike to the Capuchin monastery to look over the rooftops and terraced vineyards. Alternatively, hit the beach and swim in the emerald waters.

End with a visit to Manarola, considered the oldest of the 5 villages. Explore on your own and enjoy an aperitivo at the end of an amazing day.
