LIGURIA TOUR IN MINIVAN AND BUS

ORTOFINO TOUR AND TIGULLIO COAST FROM SAVONA

This tour of the surroundings or territory of Portofino is aimed at discovering the three “pearls of the Tigullio”:

The tour starts in Rapallo, the oldest town in the area and located in the most sheltered part of the Gulf. Evidence of its history can be seen in its castle, a seafront fortress built in the 16th century against Saracen invasions, the Medieval bridge which, according to legend, Hannibal crossed during the 2nd Punic War, and the several Baroque steeples reaching up to the sky.
From Rapallo we’ll move to Santa Margherita Ligure, a Roman town which has been transformed from an old fishing village into an international resort. From the 19th century, it has been attracting important visitors including royal families, political and industrial leaders, and celebrities. Precious artistic artefacts are preserved in its Romanic and Baroque churches, in Villa Durazzo, set in the middle of a splendid park by the sea, and in the enchanting Cervara Abbey.
Time at leisure to have lunch in one of the several seafront restaurants, then depart for Portofino. On the way there, have a look at the tiny sandy beach of Paraggi, then arrive in Portofino. Very popular with VIP’s of any kind and known all over the world because of its small square, this tiny town has been capable of keeping throughout the years the old, picturesque aspect.

CINQUE TERRE TOUR FROM GENOVA
Your luxurious vehicle and driver will be waiting directly for you at your ship in Genoa Port to take you to tour one of Italy’s most beautiful places – the Cinque Terre. What is the Cinque Terre? Five miles of spectacular rocky coast, two promontories, thousands of kilometers of dry walls built on terraces cultivated with vineyards, five medieval fishing villages built on rock…add to this the incredible color of the sea and the sky, and you may understand what the Cinque Terre is. You are in for a real treat today. This is one of our favorite shore excursions with unforgettable views of hills, sea and vineyards.

Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore are their names. Each village is unique in its own way; all are part of a national park system protected by UNESCO since 1997. Inaccessible until fairly recently, in spite of tourism, the Cinque Terre have kept the charm that make them so special and you will experience this during your tour today.

You will begin your shore excursion with a drive south until you reach the last of the five towns – “Riomaggiore”. You will walk through this town in order to reach the breathtaking “Via dell’Amore” (Street of Love), this famous and very romantic walkway carved out of the cliffs (entrance fee). You will then arrive in the second town, Manarola in about 15 minutes where you can take the train or boat to Vernazza. It is also possible to hike along the mountain path to reach Vernazza.

Vernazza is a beautiful town, considered to be the most picturesque of the Cinque Terre and it is here that you will want stop during your shore excursion to have your lunch in one of the typical restaurants that are plentiful in this town. This should be a very flexible itinerary since everyone will have their own interests and may not want to see and do the same things. An excellent way to see the Cinque Terre during this shore excursion, is to buy the “Cinque Terre” pass for the trains. This pass will allow you unlimited transportation between the towns and also includes entrance to the “Via dell’Amore” and the bus service to Corniglia which is the town on the hill high above the coast.

Meet your car and driver at the end of the day in a convenient location of your choice for your comfortable ride back to the Port of Genoa.
