  • This morning, you’re driven to the Nice Train station for your scenic four-hour train journey to Santa Margherita Ligure (premier class). Upon arrival to Santa Margherita Ligure, meet your private driver who will transfer you to your hotel on the Ligurian waterfront. Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure to explore the city. We recommend starting in the heart of the city, where you can discover the local gelaterias, boutique shops and local pastel-hued facades.

  • Today, spend the day exploring the tiny coastal villages that make up the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Cinque Terre, with your private guide. Departing from Santa Margherita Ligure, travel south with the local train to board the ferry before taking in the picturesque scenery of the Ligurian coast by water.

  • Heading north along the Ligurian coastline today, leave Santa Margherita Ligure marina behind. Pass the village of Paraggi and the more imposing coastal town of Portofino, where you can choose to disembark to explore. For swimming and snorkeling, stop at the San Fruttoso cove which is only accessible by boat. Renowned for its brightly painted houses, the town of Camogli, will be your last stop before heading back by private boat to Santa Margherita Ligure.

  • Today you will be transferred by private driver to the Genoa airport for your flight home.
