You’ll have some free time for lunch perhaps indulging one last time in the city’s legendary cuisine, before heading to La Spezia on the Italian Riviera.

Starting in Porto Venere, we’ll travel along the coast by boat, joining a Local Specialist who will share how the region’s isolated position protected it from pirates in years gone by. Returning to our hotel in La Spezia, we’ll enjoy dinner with our fellow travellers, sharing stories of the magnificent cliffside villages we’ve spent the day admiring.

The maritime city of Genoa and birthplace of Columbus is your first stop today as you join a Local Specialist for a guided walking tour to view the city’s majestic Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

Set against the backdrop of the Southern Alps, the quiet shores of this lake are your home for the next two nights, as they are for many well-heeled locals. Later, you could choose to join an Optional Experience to one of the Borromean Islands – Isola Bella, which includes a visit inside the aristocratic Borromeo Palace and its gorgeous terraced gardens.
