follow your heart to ITALY this coming october!

our 2011 FOLLOW YOUR HEART tour to Italy will be this fall. and we will be visiting the breath-taking, coastal region of LIGURIA. also known as the ITALIAN RIVIERA, the region of LIGURIA is filled with quaint towns, exotic beaches, picturesque scenery…definitely a tour you wouldn’t want to miss!


day 1 - we will be meeting in GENOVA. there are trains and flights from rome or any other major city in Italy to GENOVA. from there we will ride the train thru LIGURIA to the heart of the LIGURIAN COASTSANTA MARGHERITA LIGURE.



 day 2 - we will be walking to PORTOFINO - an hour or so walk from SANTA MARGHERITA..breath-taking scenery and a visit to a castle on the top of PORTOFINO. being one of the most precious jewels in the world, we will be sure to not leave PORTOFINO without taking copious amounts of photos. :)  from here we will make our way to CAMOGLI, where we will dine in a fine local restaurant with a nice terrace…right on the beach.






day 3 - some of you may have heard of CINQUE TERRE. today will be the day we experience her in all her beauty. being a rugged part of the region ofLIGURIA, we will have to take the train into the villages, as there are no roads into them. a full day of fun and breath-taking beauty along the “love trail” will satisfy our photographic desires!


day 4 - a slow morning in SANTA MARGHERITA and visiting the street market and wandering about. in the afternoon we will go toLAVAGNA, a fishing port in the italian riviera,  to visit one of the oldest ardesia quarries in Italy (black boards are made of slate)..and lots of time for some shopping at some really great shops!2011_FYH-9.jpg

day 5 & 6 - we will move to GENOVA - the birth place of not only our tour guide, Max, but also of Christopher Columbus. being one of the oldest and most important cities in all of Italy, the least we can say is you will be impressed! :)






day 7 - this day will be used to visit another jewel of the ITALIAN RIVIERASAN FRUTTUOSO, another little coastal village with views and places to wander and photograph to our hearts content!

day 8 - our last morning together in paradise before we head back to GENOVA to say goodbye!
