Head south to the Cinque Terre region
Drive along the A15 for a distance of 160km to the coast. The scenery is stunning and your Porsche 911 Cabriolet will be a thrill on the open road. Cinque Terre is a stunning setting of five ancient villages perched perilously on the cliffs sides overlooking the ocean. The buildings are vividly coloured and interspersed with narrow winding streets that make their way down to the water. Park your car and explore on foot. You can stroll down to the waterfront and enjoy a fabulous plate of seafood on the dock, as you watch the small boats come and go.
Near to Cinque Terre is the lovely Sestri Levante, with the beautiful bays Baia delle Favole and Baia del Silenzio. They were named in honour of the author HC Andersen, who lived in Sestri Levante for a short while.
