Brilliant colours of the Riviera

Package price per person, 4 days from € 280,00

Group price valid from 20 participants.

The blue of the sea, the green of the “pesto” sauce, the little houses huddled against each other that were once brightly coloured are slowly fading witnesses of a past era. These are the colours that will fascinate you on your trip. You will stay in the 4* Loano 2 Village hotel, just 1.5 Km from the coast. From there, every day, you explore the so-called old “borghi” (villages), the boutiques of Alassio and the alleys of Genoa. Admire the beauty of the region and discover its lively inhabitants. Take part in an amusing “pasta quiz” and guess different types of sauces and pastas! And then, of course, enjoy them at the end of the game!

Day 1 Arrival and check-in for a 3-night HB stay

Day 2 Today we visit Cervo, a picturesque fishing village, a swarm of white houses perched on a cliff in the Riviera of Flowers, from where a wonderful view over the bay of Diano Marina can be enjoyed. Following the “Via Aurelia” coastal road we reach Alassio, a sunny location with a beautiful sandy beach and a small “wall of love” called “muretto”, one of Alassio’s landmarks. We then leave for lunch in the hinterland of Imperia. In this restaurant, your guests can enjoy a warm and familiar atmosphere and typical Ligurian dishes. After lunch, return to the hotel and free time.

Day 3 Genoa, the capital of Liguria, which owes its historical centre (one of the largest in Italy) to its past as one of the great Maritime Republics, is our next stop. City tour and then departure to Rapallo, one of the best-known holiday resorts of the Eastern Riviera. Visit to the luxurious promenade and the marina. From here, we will sail along the most elegant strip of the Italian coast to Portofino. The Portofino promontory is covered with olive trees and maritime pines and the Portofino bay is where today VIP yachts and boats are moored.

Day 4 After breakfast, departure.
