We are super excited to go back and spend more time in Italy…so much to see! Come join us starting out in northern Italy spending a few days exploring stunning Lake Como region. After that we will catch a private coach and head to Cinque Terre, this is one of our favorite places of all time! Explore the 5 towns built into the side of cliffs of the Italian Riviera coastline. This truly will be an unforgettable trip…combining great food, relaxation, and active adventures you  won’t one to miss this one!

Lake Como, in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, is an upscale resort area known for its dramatic scenery, set against the foothills of the Alps. The lake is shaped like an upside-down Y, with three slender branches that meet at the resort town of Bellagio. At the bottom of the southwest branch lies the city of Como, home to Renaissance architecture and a funicular that travels up to the mountain town of Brunate.

Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of the 5 towns, colorful houses and vineyards cling to steep terraces, harbors are filled with fishing boats and trattorias turn out seafood specialties along with the Liguria region’s famous sauce, pesto. The Sentiero Azzurro cliffside hiking trail links the villages and offers sweeping sea vistas.

**Please note, these adventures are planned far in advance, and sometimes things come up that are unforeseen or unplanned. With that forethought, know the group will be accompanied on this adventure by Keith, or Michelle, and/or My1FitLife Ambassador.
