Meet your driver guide at Rome hotel and transfer to Florence. Your driver guide will stop in Siena and Monteriggioni to visit these enchanting villages. The drive itself is magnificent: enjoy the view of Chianti hills covered by vineyards and olives trees, with the cypresses that became soon familiar. Siena is probably Italy's loveliest medieval city. Its heart is the central piazza known as Il Campo, known worldwide for the famous Palio run here, a horse race run around the piazza two times every summer. Movie audiences worldwide can see Siena and the Palio in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. Time permitting, short stop in at the charming and tiny castle town of Monteriggioni. With lunch at a Tuscan Villa estate, as well as wine tasting and cellar visit included, this is a great day to experience the best aspects of this wonderful region!

Located at the foot of the Apuan Alps, Lucca is one of the cities most  loved all of Tuscany. The Roman amphitheater testifies Roman's origin of the town. But still today, you can recognize Lucca  as a Medieval town. The imposing walls surrounding the old town were maintained, and today, the top is a pedestrian promenade. The area around the walls is expertly preserved, with flourishing grass and trees everywhere along the walls.  It's great to see these imposing walls transformed into a park, where everyone can enjoy a bike ride around the perimeter,  have a stroll or just rest on one of the many shaded benches.  You will arrive in Cinque Terre late afternoon. Overnight in Portovenere (B) 

Day 07: Cinqueterre Excursion

Visitors are fascinated by the beauty of these five small villages, namely: Manarola, Riomaggiore, Corniglia,  Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. The inhabitants of Cinque Terre benefit not only from its pristine waters, but from its  natural environment, where wild nature is interspersed with vineyards, olive groves and citrus orchards, creating a precious  bond between man, his traditions and this breathtaking stretch of coast. You’ll return late afternoon in Portovenere. (B)

    This was my fourth trip to Ireland and by far the BEST with Celtic Tours!!!! The tour locations were wonderful and our tour guide, Sean was awesome!!! Sean was very educated on the country and we learned so much from him. He was very accommodating and allowed extra time where we would like to stop. I would HIGHLY recommend Celtic Tours and Sean as your guide.
