GLOBUS 2023: Northern Italy's Highlights & Cinque Terre (LV)
10 days from Milan to Milan
Parmesan and prosciutto. Ferraris and Fiats. Ruins and the Riviera. Some of Italy's greatest indulgences can be found up north. Italy's 'Fabulous Five,' the nickname for the gelato-colored, cliffside fishing villages along the Mediterranean, start the count of the numerous joys you'll experience on this Undiscovered Tour of Northern Italy. In addition to savoring the freshest seafood along the coast, you'll relish a balsamic vinegar tasting in the epicurean city of Modena, a parmesan cheese tasting near Verdi's hometown of Busseto, a risotto lunch at a Vercelli rice factory, and a wine tasting in vineyard-dotted Gabiano. To spice things up, you'll speed over to the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, cruise to the yacht-filled harbor of Portofino, and strut your stuff down the streets of Milan. Leading you to the fabulous, the famous, and the fashionable, this tour is the way to see Northern Italy in style.
