Cote d'Azur, Portofino & Cinque Terre

This exclusive luxury tour explores the glorious Mediterranean coast in both France and Italy. Experience the best of the French and Italian Riviera, including seaside villages, dramatic landscapes, excellent food and wine, outstanding art collections, and leisure time at top luxury resorts.

Start on the beautiful Cote d’Azur and stay at a luxurious resort overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Visit local towns along the waterfront and in the hills of the French Riviera and Monaco, such as Nice, Cannes, Eze, Saint-Paul de Vence, Antibes and Monte-Carlo. Touring options include exploring atmospheric villages, seeing the Prince’s Palace in Monte-Carlo, strolling through botanic gardens, browsing local markets, visiting art museums and the Chapelle du Rosaire (Matisse chapel), strolling along waterside promenades, sampling local culinary specialties, and much more, depending on your interests. We can also arrange special interest activities such as learning to make your own perfume at a workshop in Grasse, chartered boat excursions, wine tasting, biking and more. During leisure time, enjoy your luxury resort, or perhaps spend time at the beach. 

Next, you will be transferred to Italy’s Ligurian Coast and Portofino. En route, you may wish to stop in Genoa for a traditional pesto lunch. Spend the next three nights in Portofino at Hotel Splendido. A former monastery, it is now a glamorous retreat perched high above the village and its harbor.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to the Cinque Terre—five tiny villages clinging to the rocky cliffs of the Mediterranean coast. Browse the villages and enjoy scenic walks along the sea through terraced vineyards and olive groves, citrus trees and Mediterranean scrub. Another day is free for swimming, sailing, shopping, leisurely walks, and superb dining.
