                       singles cruises and toursVIEW OF THE COASTLINE OF THE STUNNING CINQUE TERRE REGION OF ITALY

Join us for an incredible week of exploring the incomparable scenic beauty of the Cinque Terre and Portofino regions of Italy. 

On the beautiful Italian Riviera, five villages cling alongside stunning seaside cliffs.  Known as Cinque Terre (Italian for Five Villages), they are fairy tale like visions of pastel hued homes, immaculate little churches, beaches dotted with colorful umbrellas and stunning scenery everywhere you look.

These villages are linked by ferries and trains but the best way to see these quaint seaside villages and dramatic scenery is by a network of footpaths that offer spectacular views of the Ligurian Sea, the wildflowers, olive groves and the spectacular cliffs surrounding it.


The best way to experience the breathtaking beauty of this region is by foot and our tour will feature professionally guided walks to truly experience the sights, sounds, tastes and aromas of this unparalleled region. Our walks are all at low altitudes, just a few hundred feet above sea level with very little ascent, so anyone in reasonable fitness can enjoy each day’s walk.  These professionally guided walks are each between 5 and 8 miles and all feature incredible views and plenty of stops for photos.  We will have opportunities to enjoy lunches with amazing views, local cuisine and fabulous local wines, or liquors at your leisure, during or at the end of each day’s walk. We will even have an included wine tasting to enjoy at the end of one of our walks and we will enjoy an included lunch with a panoramic view during two of our walks.

All of our walks are private for just our group and all are led by a local who will share a local’s knowledge of the region to our private group. Our group is limited to only 12 people, plus 2 trip escorts from S.C.A.T. plus our local walking guides, so our passengers on this trip have the best opportunity to experience this incredible region in the best small group environment.

We will be based the entire week in one hotel, enabling all to unpack just once and enjoy this gorgeous region of Italy. Our hotel is a short walk from charming restaurants to enjoy authentic Italian cuisines and wines with a view each evening, at your leisure and plenty of chic shopping, following our walks, if you desire, or enjoy our hotel’s indoor pool and sun terrace with Jacuzzi, to relax, after our daily walks.  Our hotel is also walking distance to the local train station, making for easy access on the one full free day in our itinerary, for you to visit any of the nearby cities, attractions or return for another day in the Cinque Terre villages at your own leisure.

Late May is the ideal period to enjoy the walks and villages of the Cinque Terre, as the flowers have just bloomed, the average daily temperature is a very comfortable 70 degrees and the summer crowds have not yet arrived.
