Upon arrival at Milan Malpensa airport, meet our private-car driver and transfer to the hotel. Check in to your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure exploring the city. Depending on the arrival time, it is possible to participate in a guided tour of the city centre, which reaches the main symbols of the city, such as the Duomo, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the Teatro alla Scala and the Sforzesco Castle; or you can participate in an internal visit of the Teatro alla Scala and its museum, a unique experience to visit one of the most famous theatre houses in the world. For the sports enthusiasts, a bike tour Tour is also available. Overnight in Milan.
After breakfast at the hotel, you will reach Milan Centrale station to board the train to Genoa. The journey takes about 1h 40m. After arriving, hotel accommodation and free time at your disposal for a visit of the city on your own. A one-day hop-on / hop-off tourist bus ticket (with multilingual audio guide) is included, which can also be used for getting around the city, ideal for those who want to get around to discover Genoa on one’s own, the city hiding a multitude of treasures to be discovered. You can stroll through the alleys of the historic centre, admire the marine fauna of the Aquarium, one of the largest in Europe, or discover the local specialties (focaccia, cheese focaccia, fried squid) on an appetizing street food tour. Overnight in Genoa.
After breakfast at the hotel, we board the train to La Spezia. The journey takes about 1h 30m. La Spezia is the starting city to explore the famous Cinque Terre, the stretch of coast with 5 fishing villages perched over the sea: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. The two-day Cinque Terre Train Card is included, which allows access to the National Park area and the use of regional trains that connect the villages and of local buses. Overnight in La Spezia.
Breakfast at the hotel, then free day to continue the visit of the Cinque Terre, participate in a food tour to taste the typical season specialties of the territory. Sports enthusiasts can opt for a mountain e-bike ride with a guide on one of the many scenic routes of the Gulf of Poets. Overnight in La Spezia.
After breakfast at the hotel, we board the high-speed train to Roma Termini Station. The journey takes about 4hrs. We suggest taking a train departing early in the morning to have a half day at disposal in Rome to discover the city or join an optional activity. We recommend a guided tour of the Vatican Museums, to admire Michelangelo’s famous Sistine Chapel and other masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance, or our tour of Imperial Rome, to closely observe the monuments of the Roman Forum, enter the Colosseum and listen to our guide’s evocative narration of the history of ancient Rome and the gladiator fights that took place there. Alternatively, gastronomy enthusiasts can participate in a practical cooking class to learn how to prepare some of the best-known Italian specialties such as pasta, pizza or tiramisu.
