THE DAILY ROUTE
DAY 1 PORTOFINO TO CINQUE TERRE
This is on the Italian Riviera. It is the little port town, Portofino. It is a genuine piece of earthly paradise. This peaceful haven is popular. Specifically, with the international jet set. It offers breathtaking views over the Gulf of Genova. Numerous celebrities own luxurious estates here. What to do there? Walk over the summit past the Castello. Additionally, swim in the Captain’s Cove at the foot of high cliffs. Enjoy the lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula. Shop in the lovely fashion boutiques. Portofino has a lot to offer for everyone. Without a doubt, lunch or supper in the Splendido Hotel is a must.
DAY 2 CINQUE TERRE – PORTOVENERE
Consider spending a few days exploring the Cinque Terre. In specific, you find fantastic hilltop towns here. In addition, spectacularly good restaurants as well. Some of the villages provide a dramatic coast line. It is breathtaking to see when approaching by yacht tender. Others can only be accessed on land. They are all absolutely stunning.
DAY 3 FORTE DEI MARMI
Undoubtedly one of the must see destinations on the Italian Coast, Forte dei Marmi. It is well known for its wide sandy beaches. Especially due to Alpi Apuane as backdrop. It should be noted, it is considered the East Hampton of Italy. The city delights with nice restaurants and beautiful beach areas.
DAY 4 PISA
The Captain will organize your transfer to Pisa by private car from Livorno (Approximately 40 min). Once a maritime power to rival Genoa and Venice, Pisa now draws its fame from an architectural project gone terribly wrong. But the world-famous Leaning Tower is just one of many noteworthy sights in this compelling city.
The center of town is full of vibrant cafes and bars, balancing an enviable portfolio of well-maintained Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas with a lively street life dominated by locals rather than tourists.
DAY 5 FLORENCE
The Captain will organize your transfer from Livorno to Florence by car (Approximately 1.5 hours).
Surprisingly small as it is, this riverside city looms large on the world’s ‘must-sees’ list. A cradle of the Renaissance and home to famous art, Florence is magnetic, romantic and busy. Its urban fabric has hardly changed since the Renaissance. One reason, the narrow streets evoke a thousand tales. Its food and wine are wonderful. The tag ‘Fiorentina’ is an international label of quality assurance.
Fashion designers parade on Via de’ Tornabuoni. Gucci was born here, as was Roberto Cavalli, who, like many a smart Florentine these days, hangs out in wine-rich hills around Florence. After a while in this absorbing city, you might want to do the same.
DAY 6 GIGLIO/MONTECRISTO
Compared to a pearl in a shell, the small Giglio isle lies cradled by warm blue seas. It is located specifically in the Southern corner of the Tuscan Archipelago. Just 50 km south of Elba, and 15 km from the mainland. Giglio has a mild climate and unspoiled nature. Uniquely crystal clear, emerald colored waters offer unforgettable sceneries all year round.
DAY 7 ARGENTARIO
A thickly wooded, 23-square-mile promontory is linked to the mainland by three causeways. L’Argentario has long been a vacation spot for wealthy Romans. Its main town is Porto Santo Stefano. This is a uniquely flashy harbor for yachts. Next, the colorful Porto Ercole. Baroque painter, Caravaggio, died of malaria here in 1610. Finally, there’s also the lively fishing port of Orbetello nearby, with its blue-tinged lagoon.
DAY 8 ELBA
Elba is a lovely island with a large choice of small ports and anchorages and an inland very much worth visiting.
Though best known for the famous prisoner who called it home for a short time, Napoleon Bonaparte. Absolutely, the scenery with its spectacular mountains and numerous beaches draw visitors here each year.
