Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm
Enjoy a Spectacular tour to the Italian Riviera and Cinque Terre including visits to the beautiful bay of Portofino and the principality of Monaco. The Italian Riviera is essentially another name for the coast of Liguria, one of the country's smallest but most intriguing regions. Resonating with style and charm, this sweeping shore curves between France's Côte d'Azur and Tuscany. Its beaches border sparkling blue waters, its seaside towns for the most part exude an atmosphere of old-world ritziness.
Diano Marina is an extremely popular resort on the Ligurian Riviera that attracts quite a great deal of tourists each year. It's characterized by excellent climatic conditions, splendid beaches, a multitude of outdoor events and wonderful cuisine. The entire town is focused on pleasing its tourists and offers hotels, beach establishments and a vibrant nightlife. There's something to satisfy every type of visitor to Diano Marina.
Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of the 5 towns, colorful houses and ancient vineyards cling to steep terraces, fishing boats bob in harbors and trattorias turn out seafood specialties along with the Liguria region’s most famous dish, pesto. The best way to visit all the villages of the Cinque Terre is by rail. Local trains depart from Sestri Levante direction la Spezia and stop in all the towns with a frequency of about 30 Minutes.
Portofino - The glamorous fishing village of Portofino is home to one of Italy’s most exclusive harbours which is lined with beautiful yachts. This exclusive seaside resort is a haven for jet-setters and the glitterati, and it has long been a favourite with stars of the silver screen, such as Grace Kelly, Clark Gable and Elizabeth Taylor, and more recently, the likes of Madonna and Beyonce.
Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in attitude. A magnet for high-rollers, it's also one of the world's most notorious tax havens. It's also famous for the Formula 1 Grand Prix, held every May. The Harbour is where the rich and famous dock their expensive yachts, visitors will find the royal yacht, owned by the Prince of Monaco docked here amongst hundreds of other yachts and ships. Relax at a waterfront café and enjoy the beautiful scenery and glamorous setting.
We have just returned from our European tour. Would I recommend Scenic to friends or use them again. The answer to that is a resounding yes. At least we knew that the standard of hotel, would be good and that parking would be available. Also it is of reassurance that, should things go terribly wrong, there is a phone number we can contact for help. Not something available if we went independent. As I said, all in all, it was a good trip. Kind regards Richard Hall
