Liguria and Piedmont

Book our multi centre holiday to Liguria and Piedmont and take in the beauty of the Italian Riviera and experience Piedmont, the new food capital of Italy.

Your adventure begins in Liguria in the town of Sanremo, so after spending sometime at the beach you can visit the Russian Church, Villa Nobel, Ariston Theatre, Regina Elena gardens. In the evening take the " walk of the Empress" to the centre and visit the Casino of Sanremo.

After a picturesque drive on the Ligurian coast line, you’ll then make your way to the Piedmont countryside. In Piedmont you will enjoy amazing countryside views covered by vineyards, one of the best cuisines in Italy including the slow food culture and of course renowned wines and beautiful historical Borgos. 

The last part of your trip takes you to the Levante region of Liguria. There, visiting Portofino and the five villages of the Cinque Terre is a must, but at the same time you can choose to wind down by relaxing on the beach.

This is the perfect multicentre experience for food and culture lovers as well as couples looking for a romantic getaway.
