Note: Due to the nature of this package, which uses very small hotels on the Cinque Terre, we need plenty of lead time to put it together. Be sure to check with us for availability prior to purchasing your flights. The Cinque Terre, on Italy’s Riveria Coast is one of Italy’s most popular tourist destination – book early!
You’ll start with three nights in Rome in a centrally located hotel, located just a few blocks from the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. Then you’ll travel by train to the Cinque Terre coast of the Italian Riviera. Your hotel is in the picturesque old town of Monterosso. From there, you can take boats or trains to any of the other Cinque Terre towns. With 3 nights in this area, you’ll have plenty of time to explore these quaint fishing villages and relax a midst the magnificent coastal scenery.
You’ll head to Florence next, for 2 nights in a hotel that’s right in the center of the city, near the Ponte Vecchio. We’ll be happy to get you complimentary reservations to the galleries. Finally, it’s on to Venice to finish with 2 more nights in a hotel that’s just outside of St. Mark’s Square. For all of these areas, we will provide our tips for what to see and do based on our experience. We’ll coach you about riding the trains and give you specific train schedules. And all the hotels are ones we know from our own inspections.
