Experience Portofino a tiny village with pastel colored houses lining the shore of the harbor. Portofino has long been the destination of Hollywood stars. Liz Taylor, Richard Burton and Humphrey Bogart chose Portofino as the perfect hideaway. Portofino has also been a favorite of writers including Truman Capote who lived here. This pristine Mediterranean promontory loaded with history and astonishing beauty offers the chance to explore authentic Italian lifestyle. Next proceed to the fishing villages of Cinque Terre perched high above the Mediterranean sea commanding spectacular views.

Start your Italian Riviera Florence day trip with an approx. 120-minute drive (traffic pending) in the comfort of a private deluxe vehicle. During the scenic journey your expert driver/guide provides a comprehensive introduction to the places you see and the venues you visit. Your excursion in Cinque Terre starts from Riomaggiore, the oldest village lined with colorful houses. Stroll through the ancient marina that is still intact as it was centuries ago. Head onto the famous Via dell’Amore Walkway of Love which connects Riomaggiore to Manarola. One of the interesting things you see along the trail are padlocks on a fence and under the tunnel near the Manarola side. Experience the picturesque village of Manarola made of a labyrinth of narrow alleys that go all around it. Ferries and a rattling local train link the five villages. Your tour continues either by private vehicle or ferry which in about 10-minute ride takes you to Vernazza a small town with an amphitheater shape and narrow streets. Driving out of Cinque Terre is breathtaking, no doubt this is the most scenic ride you may do in any Italy excursion especially when we you reach Corniglia the only one of the Cinque Terre that is not directly on the water. At the end of your Italian Riviera Florence day trip your personal driver/guide transfers you back to your accommodation.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Rome Family Vacation Package

    Hi Nancy,
    We just returned from our week trip to Italy and the 4 days we spent in Rome with your knowledgeable, energetic and fun guide Roberta were fantastic.
    I truly believe we saw more in 4 days than most people see in 2 weeks. Roberta made sure we never stood in line for anything – we literally walked into both the Vatican and the Vatican museum. Besides seeing many of the major sites in Rome proper, we also spent a day in Tivoli. Our group of 9 ranged in age from 12 to 69and had a variety of interests and physical abilities.
    Roberta made sure that there something each day to appeal to every member of our family. For example, my 69-year-old dad wanted to visit some local open air markets and try restaurants with some true atmosphere; my teenage sons were interested in the more bizarre sites such as the catacombs and the Crypt of the Capuchins. This is just a sampling of what we accomplished in a very few days. We were able to go at a pace that kept the younger members involved, but did not wear out my parents.
    For our family, this was a truly memorable experience and the best way to see Rome in a short time.

    Florence in Day Tour

    Having taken the Vatican tour with Lucia last September, it was a pleasure to see her again and to take the Ancient Rome tour with her. My grandson had never been to Rome and he was most impressed with all Lucia had to tell us. Claudio is an excellent driver and always found the perfect parking spot. My daughter and grandson took the Vatican tour with Lucia, which I had taken before, and once again, they had a wonderful, informative afternoon. In Florence, we were pleased with the time spent with Mariana, who is also a very knowledgable, interesting guide. We were interested in local dining and she was most helpful with suggestions.
    When friends go to Italy, I always suggest taking a tour with your company and I know of one couple who will be doing so in the fall.
    I hope you will pass my comments on to Lucia, Claudio and Mariana.

    We were very satisfied with the tour. We wanted to book with Context, but they were not available on our preferred days. We just found you on the website and thought there were a number of positive reviews on other sites. Lucia (?) – was an excellent guide. She made it engaging for our children, her English was excellent, she had great understanding of her subject matter and a good sense of humour.
