Tuscany & Liguria

Siena, Tuscany

We’re happy to announce that we launch a new destination today: Tuscany and Liguria in Italy. Florence is Tuscany’s crown jewel, with its beautiful buildings, priceless art and unique atmosphere. And amongst the vineyards and hills of Tuscany are other lovely historic towns. Siena is a patrician hilltop town with a past to rival that of Florence. Pisa boasts not just the legendary leaning tower, but also several other attractions. Smaller Tuscan destinations which are popular with holidaymakers include Lucca, San Gimignano (a forest of medieval towers on a hill) and the wine-producing Chianti area. The coastline includes great resorts such as Forte dei Marmi, the Monte Argentario promontory and the Isle of Elba. The region’s thermal springs at Chianciano and Bagni di Lucca are also popular.

 

Liguria is bordering with France. The region features impressive mountains and lovely rolling hills, overlooking the Ligurian Sea. Its characteristic rocky coast is interrupted by small coves, and beaches of fine golden sand.  The Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets, the Gulf of Tigullio, Genoa and Paradise Gulf, the Riviera delle Palme and the Riviera dei Fiori make up the famous coast of Liguria which stretches from Ameglia to Ventimiglia. During an itinerary so spectacular for the beauty of the land and seascapes, we can see the most famous tourist resorts: Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Sestri Levante with its enchanting Baia del Silenzio (Silent Bay), and Chiavari.  Sanremo is the city of flowers. Bordighera and Alassio, with its 3 kilometers of fine sand, along with Laigueglia and Varigotti, are some of the gems embedded in the Riviera di Ponente. Then comes Portovenere – facing Palmaria Island – then Lerici with its grand Medieval castle and elegant villas.
