Day 1: Sestri Levante

Arrival in Sestri Levante in the early afternoon.

Free time to visit the village that enchants for its historic centre arranged along the two bays, the Bay of Silence and the Bay of Fables.

Hans Christian Andersen stayed there and still today it is possible to enjoy the fairytale atmosphere that reigns in this ancient village of fishermen and sailors, with a history full of charm and anecdotes.

You can walk in the “carrugi” into the historic centre and it is possible to take a splendid excursion until to reach the Promontory of Punta Manara from where you can enjoy a wonderful view over the entire Gulf of Tigullio.
At the end visit of the well-known olive oil mill, who has handed down its work since 1867.

To date, it serves more than 1500 olive growers in the area and is among the best Ligurian producers, so much so that in recent years it has received numerous awards also at an international level. Here it will be possible to have an extra virgin olive oil tasting. In the evening, transfer to the hotel in Sestri Levante, free dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Cinque Terre National Park

Breakfast at the hotel and meeting with the guide. Transfer by train to Riomaggiore, the first village in the Park, where our visit begins.

The Cinque Terre Park, included within the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is made up of five villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso.

The most famous path is the “Blue Path”, through which we will touch, gradually, all the other villages. In addition to striking for the beauty of churches and sanctuaries, the particularity of this area is given by the landscapes built by man, with terraces overlooking the sea, where we can find vineyards for the production of excellent DOC wines, such as Sciacchetrà, and olive groves.

Lunch will be on your own.

Afternoon will be dedicated to a wine – trekking, a non-demanding, easy and pleasant route, lasting about 1 hour at a leisurely pace, for a total of about 1.5 km, with not too steep slopes. It is a scenic route that will make you discover some of the most spectacular vineyards of the 5 Terre, an area recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is an opportunity to learn more about the history, vineyards and traditions of the area in the field.

Visit to the winery, tasting of the wines produced by the vineyards just crossed. It is the first route in the 5 Terre that combines storytelling, trekking in the vineyards, landscape, history and wine tastings with a visit to the wine cellar.

In the evening, return to the hotel, dinner on your own and overnight stay.

Day 3: The Ligurian Wineries

Breakfast at the hotel and luggage accommodation.

In the morning transfer to the winery in Sestri Levante. The winery offers a path to learn about the history of these Ligurian wines, when at the dawn of 1978 the owner, aware of the potential that he sensed were hidden in the sour wines of Ligurian farmers, decided to try the “adventure” of enhancing the wines of East Riviera.

During the guided tour, you will be able to understand how their wines are created and perceive the love and passion with which they are produced, admire the 3,000 litre aquarium in the “Sala delle Volte” and discover the innovative architecture of the steel barrels where it is made to mature the wine.
