Visit the Ligurian coast, where some of Italy's most famous resorts are dotted along the shoreline. Explore Santa Margherita Ligure, which overlooks a bay, before taking a boat trip along the coast to its ultra-chic neighbour, Portofino, for a taste of "la dolce vita".
Relax in the resort, or join today's optional excursion to Pisa and Lucca.
