Discover the beautiful Ligurian coast, where some of Italy's most famous resorts are dotted along the shoreline.

Relax in the resort, or join today's optional excursion to Pisa and Lucca. Discover the Pisa's medieval delights - the famous 'leaning tower', circular Baptister and mightly Duomo - on a guided tour before we continue to the elegant walled city of Lucca. Here the medieval clock tower, the Torre della Ore, and the exquisite Piazza Anfiteatro are just some of the must-see sights.

We'll return to the Ligurian coast on our final optional excursion, heading to the Cinque Terre (Five Lands). This entrancing quintet of ancient villages is squeezed into a series of tiny coves surrounded by celebrated vineyards. Overlooked by working fishing harbours, the breathtaking villages produce some of Ligura's most celebrated wines.
Journey back to the airport and check in for your flight home.
This elegant hotel, the extensive terraces of which overlook the parkland surrounding Montecatini's thermal baths, lies a short distance from all of the spa-town's main attractions.
The Belvedere boasts an excellent location close to the spa-town's centre, and opposite the famous Tettuccio Spa.
