The Leaning Tower of PISA (30 minutes away) has recently opened to the public – it is stunningly set in an open lawned piazza which also houses the Cathedral, Baptistery and Campo Santo Cemetery.

A 40 minute drive will take you to the little port and town of LERICI overlooked by a cliff top castle from where boats leave every hour to PORTOVENERE and the World Heritage site of the CINQUE TERRE - five dramatically cliff clinging villages.

Renaissance FLORENCE is just an hour away, either by train or car – we can arrange guided visits as well as organise pre-booked tickets to the Uffizi or the Accademia.

SIENA is an hour and a half away with possible stops on the way to SAN GIMIGNANO and MONTERIGGIONI, as is CHIANTI where you can arrange a wine-tasting at one of the many vineyards.

For those interested in art and sculpture there are the impressive marble quarries of CARRARA as well as the sculpture town of PIETRASANTA.

FORTE DEI MARMI is a lively beach stop with some great shopping as you join the masses in the early evening stroll through the town.

There are also many wonderful restaurants to try in the area.
