We take a ferry (included - weather permitting) to Cinque Terre, one of the most beautiful areas of the Liguria region. Here, five small villages are nestled in the cliffs overlooking the sea and hills where the land’s finest wines are grown. We make a short stop in the picturesque village of Monterosso.

We spend the rest of the day seeing amongst others the Duomo, Piazza Signoria and Ponte Vecchio. Optional dinner at the hotel.

On display are old and reproduction rustic furniture, old tools, farmhouse and vineyard artifacts, ceramics, glassware and cutlery, a very good range of embroidered linen, very interesting iron work, paintings, postcards, books, silver gilt and many more.
