where a welcome glass of Prosecco awaits us on
arrival and you have time to settle in before
dinner this evening.

Monday

Today we travel to La Spezia and enter
the wonderful and colourful world of Le Cinque
Terre, the ‘Five Lands’. These quaint and
incredibly scenic fishing villages can really only
be visited by boat or train owing to their
location on the rugged coastline of the
Mediterranean. Explore pretty Riomaggiore on
foot, and then we take the local train to
Monterosso, a sumptuous village with plenty of
opportunity to browse the shops and enjoy a
seafood lunch before a local ferry whisks us back
along the coast affording us superb views of all
five villages with their mountainous backdrop.

Tuesday

Once a fishing village, Viareggio is now
a thriving resort with a long beachside
promenade and shops, providing you with
plenty to explore at your day at leisure.

Wednesday

After breakfast we make our way to
Pisa, best known for its leaning tower and
remarkable cathedral with well maintained
Romanesque buildings as well as Renaissance
piazzas with a lively street life dominated by
locals rather than tourists. We have plenty of
time to explore before continuing to Lucca
which is one of the oldest cities in Tuscany.
Home to a maze of narrow cobbled streets,
beautiful churches and chapels.

Thursday

Today we travel to Florence where
you can discover Michelangelo’s world famous
sculpture of David, the 15th century Duono di
Firenze, the Uffizi Gallery and the Medieval
Ponte Vecchio and relive the romance of EM
Forster’s ‘A Room with a View’.

Friday

Today we visit the most fashionable and
stylish resort of the Italian Riviera, Santa
Margherita, with its attractive palm lined
streets. From here, we enjoy a relaxing boat ride
along the coast, around the headland and into
the chic and famous resort of Portofino. Later
we return by coach to our hotel for dinner

Saturday.

Sadly after breakfast, it is time to
return to our overnight in Dijon on a bed and
breakfast basis

Sunday.

We make our way back to the port and
our ferry to Dover, then onwards to the West
Country.
