WELCOME TO LIGURIA 

Imagine yourself immersed in the flavor of the Italian Rivera—

picturesque towns, warm sunshine, exquisite coastline, delicious food,

warm and welcoming people—

 from Rapallo, a 16th Century fortress with stunning views of the sea—

to the Cinque Terre, a string of centuries-old seaside villages

on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline.

 

For four fabulous days, you'll experience some of the most beautiful scenery in Italy  

exploring Rapallo, Portofino,

the Cinque Terre and Genoa.

 

Next, a scenic drive through Tuscany—

with a stop for a fabulous wine-tasting lunch as we head to the

le Marche region on the Adriatic Coast.

 

 

Immerse yourself in the magnificence of

one of the most beautiful places on earth,

experiencing the eastern side of Italy and the Adriatic coast through all your senses:

The sites—crystal clear water; sea views; unspoiled Byzantine treasures

The sounds—waves; sea birds; 

the lilt of the language

The tastes—regional Italian gastronomy; extraordinary wine; unique cheeses

Spend quality time in the company of your amazing women traveling companions,

balanced with enough time on your own

to savor la Dolce Vita.

 

At the journey’s end, our private driver drops you off in Rome where you catch your flight home or continue on your European journey.

You depart with a full heart, new friendships,

and your soul nurtured by nine days of

la Dolce Vita!

—Centuries-old pastel-painted architecture perched above the glimmering sea.

—The catch of the day, fresh off quaint fishing boats,  offered as you dine al fresco overlooking the stunning sunset.

—Steep hills and breathtaking views as you savor a unique wine-tasting of local vintages and a memorable lunch with the vintner, overlooking coastal vineyards;
