- Door to Door Service

We have a return sailing from Hull to Rotterdam with P&O Ferries and make our way to the overnight hotel.  Our fantastic packaged tour takes in the very best of Tuscany and its stunning coastal scenery. We see the beautiful colours of the Cinque Terre by train and by boat, we visit the ancient city of Lucca and the elegant resort of Portofino and enjoy a fantastic lunch at Fattoria il Poggio - this is a trip to remember!

Enjoy a day in Viareggio. Once a fishing village, Viareggio is now a thriving resort with a long beachside promenade. We travel by boat for a journey to La Spezia into the wonderful and colourful world of Le Cinque Terre, the ‘Five Lands’. These quaint and incredibly scenic fishing villages can only be visited by boat due to their location. A tour of Lucca will give us an introduction to one of the oldest cities in Tuscany. Finally, we take in the most fashionable and stylish resorts of the Italian Riviera! We travel to the popular seaside resort of Rapallo from where we enjoy a relaxing boat ride along the coast, around the headland and into the chic and famous resort of Portofino.
