Overview

Book
Along the mild and marvelous Ligurian Rivierawhere wooden fishing boats bob beside candy colored waterfrontsthe legendary Cinque Terre, Italys five lands, has beguiled travelers since the days of Dante. In this region of fragrant macchia, crooked medieval streets, peaceful terraced gardens, and ancient stone steps, youll walk from hillside grape arbors to ancient village ports, following undulating trails through lemon and olive groves. Among rugged landscapes and pastel hued villages, youll walk into the soul of Italyaccessible only by train, boat, or footwhere the peal of bell towers gives way to the wild chorus of evening cicadas, and small boats chug out to sea by lantern light. Your rewarding adventure is made more rich by scenic walks in and around jet-setting Portofino and along the medieval ramparts of Lucca, a stunningly preserved Tuscan treasure. With a year-round temperate climate, the Cinque Terre offers a sensuous experience unlike any in Italy.

Highlights

    • Cross the Gulf of Poetswhich once inspired Byron, Shelley, and Petrarchin a vintage wooden speedboat as sunset paints the coast, and toast the view with a chilled aperitivo.
    • Relish the culinary experience of a lifetime in a local restaurant whose acclaimed chef serves fresh seafood from the neighboring docks.
    • Walk to a medieval abbey above the Bay of Fruttuoso before reaching the jet-set resort of Portofino, rewarding yourself with paciugo, a blend of gelato and fresh berries.
    • Stroll the ramparts of the remarkably preserved medieval walls of Lucca, Tuscanys celebrated hill town.
