    What to Expect
    Meet your guide near the aquarium in Genoa to begin your tour of this fascinating city.

    Begin your tour in the ancient harbor. Learn how Genoa was once one of the most powerful maritime republics in what is now Italy. Hear about the renovations to this historic harbor in the early 1990s by famed Italian architect, Renzo Piano.

    Walk with your guide through the maze of streets in the historic center – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – to see the highlights of this bustling and charming city.

    Take a break for lunch at midday (own expense), and then climb into an air-conditioned coach for the trip to Portofino. Travel along the Tigullio Gulf and keep an eye out for some of the dolphins that are frequently seen in this body of water. Arrive in Santa Margherita Ligure and transfer to a boat for the final leg of the journey to Portofino.

    Wander the lanes, lined with colorful houses. Admire the serene setting of a town that has been attracting wealthy and famous vacationers – as well as inspiring poets and artists – for centuries.

    At the end of your time in Portofino, head back to Genoa by boat.
