Setting off from the pier, you’ll take a drive along the highway and on to Sestri Levante. Facing two beautiful bays, this idyllic town has been a well known beauty spot for hundreds of years and was praised by the early Renaissance poets. Although the town has grown considerably since these early times, it has lost none of its original charm. 

Upon arrival, your guide will offer a brief introduction of the town, before you head off for independent exploration. Stroll the delightful streets and browse the shops, or simply relax in one of the many local cafés. You may wish to enjoy the sparkling Fable Bay or take a walk to Silent Bay, a tiny protected inlet.   

Afterwards, proceed to Rapallo, "the pearl of the Tigullio Gulf," a lively seaside resort on the Italian Riviera set around a picturesque bay where boats ride at anchor. Enjoy free time to explore and than meet with your guide at the designated meeting point and time for a short return drive to Santa Margherita.
