    Experience the real Florence by mingling with the residents at a popular market, sampling Florentine delicacies and browsing the less commercialized Oltrarno district. The fun will begin at San Lorenzo Market, which occupies a beautifully restored cast-iron building constructed in the 1870s. Although you may recognize some of the delicacies, be sure to ask the guide if you can’t identify something or don’t know its name. Chances are, you will see lampredotto, a Florentine specialty of cow stomach slow-cooked with vegetables and served on a crunchy bun. It is considered comfort food. After sampling a selection of more well-known products such as cheese, salami and olives, you will walk toward the Piazza del Duomo in the heart of the city. The famed Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore overlooks the square, and its dome has become a symbol of the city. Then, after stopping for a cup of creamy gelato, you will enjoy free time to explore the Oltrarno district.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Mingle with the locals while browsing Florence’s popular San Lorenzo Market.
    • Sample local delicacies such as salamis and cheeses and some more exotic ones.
    • Explore Florence’s authentic, less commercialized Oltrarno district.

    Gain an understanding and appreciation of the far-reaching influence of Andrea Bocelli’s family, beginning with a concert by artists that study with Andrea’s son Matteo. The performance will be held in Villa Bertelli, a stately 19th-century residence in the seaside Tuscan town of Forte dei Marmi. Matteo inherited his father musical genes, having performed as a singer and pianist on his own and with his father. Matteo is also a skilled vocal coach, which you will recognize as soon as his students begin to sing.


    At the nearby Alpemare Beach Club, which the Bocellis completely renovated, you will be treated to a tasting of wines from the Bocelli vineyards. The wines will be paired with a Tuscan appetizer, a perfect way to whet your appetite for the seafood lunch that will follow. The views will be as inspired as the cuisine, as the beach club overlooks a pristine stretch of sand and offers panoramic views of the majestic Apuan Alps.

    Spend free time exploring Vernazza and Riomaggiore, two spectacularly beautiful coastal villages in Cinque Terre, an area so scenic that UNESCO named it a World Heritage site.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely picturesque drive to Vernazza, one of five coastal villages within Cinque Terre. All of them lie within the ruggedly beautiful Cinque Terre National Park, an area that UNESCO has deemed a World Heritage site for being a landscape of great scenic and cultural value.

    Arguably the most photogenic of the villages, Vernazza is a wonderful setting to enjoy free time, meandering about wherever you please. The main square is a great place to start exploring, as the Church of Santa Margherita d'Antiochia stands here overlooking the natural harbor. Built in the Gothic-Ligurian style, the church features an octagonal bell tower that can't be missed, making it even easier to find your way around the pastel-colored town.

    After a few hours strolling the narrow lanes of Vernazza, you will drive on to Riomaggiore, another absolutely gorgeous coastal village that clings to a steep hillside. The largest of the five villages, Riomaggiore has also been built into a steep rocky hillside, affording magnificent views of the sea.

    Because of its size, Riomaggiore offers a few more points of interest than Vernazza. A 13th century castle looms over the historical center, the Oratory of St. Mary Assumption holds an intriguing 15th-century triptych and the St. John the Baptist church is ornamented with black-and-white marble.

    Indulge in time entirely on your own in resplendent Florence, allowing for ample exploration at your pace. Enjoy a picturesque drive of approximately 2 ½ hours through Tuscany’s legendary landscapes. Founded by Romans, Florence came under the rule of the Medici family in the 15th century, who later became the Grand Dukes of Tuscany. This was the period when the city was an economic power and at the height of its glory in art, culture and politics. Florence still retains an extraordinary wealth of artistic and architectural treasures, including the glorious Uffizi gallery, magnificent Sante Croce church, and Ponte Vecchio, the city’s oldest bridge. Once in Florence, you will have approximately three to four hours to explore at your leisure. A Florentine tour escort will accompany you on the bus and will be happy to assist in your planning.

    Explore the pastel-colored town of Lerici as a prelude to cruising around the islands in the surrounding Bay of La Spezia. Although a medieval castle dominates Lerici, there is much more to see, including the 13th-century Oratory of San Rocco and former Jewish quarter. The narrow streets are wonderfully atmospheric with fine shops characteristic of the Italian Riviera. In time, you will board a private boat for an enlightening cruise around the bay, which is also known as Poet’s Gulf in reference to Lerici once being a celebrated enclave for poets and writers. Lord Byron, Percy and Mary Shelley and D.H. Lawrence were all inspired by the setting. You will be treated to close-up views of the islands Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto in the bay’s westernmost part. UNESCO deemed them and the neighboring town of Portovenere a World Heritage site for their scenic and cultural value. You will discover Portovenere’s other charms during free time there.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Spend time on your own exploring the many attractions in pastel-colored Lerici.
    • Cruise through Poet’s Gulf for a close-up view of its World Heritage site islands.

    This very scenic section of the Italian Riviera is characterized by small sandy beaches among the rocks, high cliffs, caves and tiny bays. What makes it so unique are the five appealing villages with their pastel houses stacked up the cliff face like an array of colorfully wrapped presents. They are connected to each other only by hiking trails, trains and an occasional boat. You’ll have the opportunity to explore three of these delightful hamlets on this tour. Manarola is the quintessential Italian seaside town, and here you’ll be free to wander on your own, perhaps stopping by the 14th century church or the pleasant beach. Then board a motorboat for a scenic cruise weather permitting, that will take you to the charming fishing village of Vernazza, crowned by a castle. The colorful buildings of this little gem cluster around a small cove.


    Monterosso is said to be one of the most picturesque towns in Italy, and is considered a Cinque Terre “don’t miss.” After an introduction by your guide, you’ll have free time to explore the tiny shops and have lunch on your own. Take a look at the cathedral, lined inside with black and white stripped pillars, relax on the broad sandy beach, or stroll along the seaside boardwalk. Afterwards by train to reach Levanto for your return by bus to Livorno.
