“What a fabulous week!! Superb organisation, wonderful hotels, terrific fun!!  The best hotel was the Traube, great rooms, great food and service. Faultless in every way. We would liked to have stayed another day. Do keep me informed of any future events PLEASE.” – David & Gillian Roache

Day 6 – The Excelsior is one for you to either explore one of the coastline villages, Rapallo, Santa Margarita or Portofino or for relaxing in the excellent wellness centre which offers a sauna, gym and Turkish bath.

Guests can treat themselves to a massage or beauty treatment, or perhaps simply relax by the heated indoor or wonderful infinity pool enjoying the view over Portofino Bay. There are a number of exclusive shops in the town.

“Absolutely brilliant time…. Hard to see how you can improve on it… Charlotte, Jonathan and Phil’s endeavours to ensure everything went smoothly were really appreciated and the tour was spot on… Living in the lap of luxury hotels were superb” – Andrew and Alison Kitching

 

Day 7 – The final drive will take you along the Italian Riviera, the fast route is on the AutoRoute, the slower and more interesting is along the coast through Alassio and Diano Marina.

The finish line is in the glamorous Hotel Metropole, the ultimate 5 star destination. We will celebrate the end of seven amazing days with a Presentation Gala Dinner overlooking the bay

 

A brilliant trip of a lifetime which for me just got better and better as it went on. The Stelvio Pass was everything I had hoped for, and being surrounded by like-minded people made it even more exciting. The organising of the trip was superb with someone on hand at any time to help with everything that we needed. The staff worked non-stop to try and make sure that everyone had a good time. Myself and my wife will remember this always, thank you and well done to the team – Rob & Madeline Thomson.
