A taste of Italy

Enjoy a relaxing eight-day break amid the stunningly beautiful landscapes of the Cinque Terre, Portofino and Lake Maggiore, from just £949 per person, departing on 2 April, 7 May or 24 September

Nowhere in the world do the cliffs plunge more spectacularly into the sea than in Italy’s Cinque Terre, a stretch of coastline comprising five villages on the Ligurian Sea. The cliff sides are covered in vine and olive terraces, and there are no roads as such so villagers use boats, footpaths and trains to get from one location to another. You can have a great day hopping on and off the train along the Cinque Terre during this seven-night holiday, which comprises four nights in Santa Margherita Ligure on the coast and three nights in Stresa on Lake Maggiore. While you’re in Santa Margherita, you’ll enjoy a boat trip to the millionaires’ haunt of Portofino, and in Stresa you’ll have a day to enjoy the lake. Travelling between the two, you’ll visit the old port city of Genoa and medieval Pavia, the ancient capital of Lombardy.
