The ancient trade routes of the Roman Empire are our territory for this unique Walk through the World Heritage Site of the Cinque Terre or Five Lands. We trek cliff-top footpaths overlooking the Mediterranean and picturesque harbor towns of the Italian Riviera.

Passing through olive groves, pungent pine forests and quiet mountain pastures, we discover the towering cliffs of the Portofino National Park, a 1,200 year-old monastery and a giant vineyard amphitheatre at Volastra.

Enjoy a taste of the high-life at Portofino as we explore the prettily-painted old harbor and admire the yachts.

"There's laughter and the fun of being with people. The walks are so well organized, yet there's spontaneity"
