Day 7: Pisa – Cinque Terre – Tuscany (B)

You’ll make your way this morning to La Spezia, the gateway to Cinque Terre, perched alongside the Italian Riviera. After exploring these village harbours and vine-lined streets, head back to Tuscany via a stop off at the famed Leaning Tower of Pisa for a photo opportunity.

Pulling into port this morning, you’ll be greeted by a mesmerising collection of golden palazzi, domes and ivory limestone glimmering under the Mediterranean sun.
