Shore excursion


A splendid day in exclusive locations away from the crowds - this tour is a real treat! After a late morning start, we transfer to the ridge above Cinque Terre to savor and learn about great local wines (three varieties of the Cinque Terre white wine and the heavenly Sciacchetrà). Views of all the five villages from here are amazing! We trade lunch for the visit of the famous marble quarries in Carrara (we go inside the marble mountain on a guided tour by local marble specialist) and learn the secrets of delicious local lard. The crown of the day awaits us in the foothills: a spectacular private wine estate with premium wines and owners for whom wine is the highest passion. Here, we savor their two best whites and one red, accompanied by delicious local treats and home-made jams, unique cheeses from the area, hams, rose and herb essences, local olive oil, and much more. Perfumes, flavors, and beauty indulge our senses. La dolce vita in every detail come true.
