Italian Riviera, Monaco, Portofino & Rapallo

8 days by Rail or Air, 20 September, & 10 October 2019, from £999 per person

Destinations

Liguria
Italy’s Ligurian coast, also known as the Italian Riviera, is where the Apennines and Alps cascade into the Mediterranean sea. From the French border and San Remo in the west to Rapallo and Portofino to the east, this beautiful region has so much to offer. The peaceful resort of Diano Marina is the perfect base for exploring our carefully chosen highlights.

Dolceacqua & San Remo
At the foot of the Rebuffao mountains, Dolceacqua is a medieval village where you can meander through the streets and climb to the 12th century castle, or cross the single-arch bridge to the 15th century ‘new’ town. The Mediterranean resort of San Remo, said to be the Monte Carlo of Italy due to its famous casino, is also known as the City of Flowers for its colourful summer blooms.

Monaco
Enjoy the glitz, glamour and relaxed atmosphere of this tiny principality. Drink coffee in the famous Café de Paris in Casino Square; marvel at the mega-yachts in Port Hercule from the harbourside, or from the water-taxi – just 2 euros each way; discover rustic Monaco-Ville and the Royal Palace on the ‘Rock of Monaco’.

Rapallo & Portofino
Rapallo, known as the preferred residence of affluent Italians, has a vintage cable car up to the Santuario Basilica di Montallegro for stunning views over the area, a 16th Century castle and a lovely seafront promenade. From here we a take a ferry to famous Portofino, the small but perfectly kept village and yacht-filled harbour on its own Peninsula.
