  • Florence
  • Bologna (& day trips to Parma and Venice)
  • Montegonzi (& day trips in the Chianti region)
  • Porto Azzurro (on the Island of Elba)
  • Monterosso al Mare (& the other Cinque Terre towns)

  • Cassis
  • Saint Remy de Provence
  • Palavas les Flots (& Montpellier)


  • Barcelona (and then the long flight home)
