Resort Information

This escorted holiday sees us based in three Italian resorts.

Moniga del Garda

On the western shore of Lake Garda, Moniga del Garda is a small town with a pretty harbour area and wide pebble beaches. It is famous for its local rose wine, Chiaretto, and offers a selection of bars, restaurants and cafes.

Chianciano Terme

The spa-resort of Chianciano Terme lies about 60 miles south of Florence. Boasting a wonderful climate, Chianciano comprises two settlements: the old hill-town and the modern spa town below it. The resort offers some excellent shops, and many small bars, cafes and restaurants serving local food and wine.

Lugagnano

This small village, just a few miles to the west of Verona, is ideally situated for a relaxing final day and transfer to the airport.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Italy and transfer to Moniga del Garda and your hotel. After a chance to relax and familiarise yourself with your surroundings, enjoy dinner in the hotel.

Day Two

Today we explore "fair Verona", the historic backdrop for the tragic tale of "Juliet and her Romeo" and home to the famous opera season held yearly in its Roman amphitheatre. Explore this fascinating place, then take a seat in an open-air cafe in Piazza Bra to watch the world go by.

Day Three

Venice is one of the world's most beautiful cities, and you can explore alone or join our included guided tour. With its mysterious labyrinth of alleys and waterways, spectacular St Mark's Square and Cathedral, the bell tower, the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge and the mystique of the Palace of Prisons and the Bridge of Sighs, Venice has to be seen to be believed.

Day Four

Bidding farewell to Garda's shores, we travel south to Florence. See the magnificent Florentine skyline, explore Santa Croce and cross the medieval Ponte Vecchio. Art lovers can visit the Accademia to marvel at Michelangelo's peerless statue of David, or wander the Uffizi and admire Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus' (gallery entries payable locally).

In the afternoon we'll head further into Tuscany to our second base - Chianciano Terme.

Day Five

Our fifth day's touring takes us into the rolling Tuscan hills and to Siena. See the magnificent Piazza il Campo, home of the traditional Palio horse race, before continuing north west to see the exquisite, Tuscan, hill-top fortress of San Gimignano and its beautiful towers, medieval walls and cathedral.

Day Six

Today we travel south to Rome. Enjoy our guided tour of the ancient Colosseum and Forum, the great basilicas and the Baroque fountains. In the Vatican City, the dome of St Peter's looks over the vast Square, while a visit to the nearby Sistine Chapel will reveal Michelangelo's fabled frescoes.

Day Seven

Join us as we head through Umbria to Assisi, birthplace of Italy's patron St Francis, and home to the magnificent Basilica with its frescoes celebrating the life of that "most saintly of all the saints".

After our visit we'll head to our final hotel, in Lugagnano, just outside Verona.

Day Eight

Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.

Find out more

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time to your hotel is approximately one hour from Verona, and three hours from Milan and Venice. The transfer time back to the airport from your hotel is approximately 10 minutes from Verona Airport and three hours from Milan.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Meals in Italy

Guests on half-board arrangements will be served a three-course evening meal, and can expect a first course of traditional pasta or soup, a main meat or fish course accompanied by one or two types of vegetable, and a simple dessert of fruit, cake or Italian ice cream. Breakfasts will usually consist of bread rolls, jam, cereal, ham, cheese, fruit juice, tea and coffee. Menus will vary from hotel to hotel, but choice will be more limited than in a normal restaurant.

Early mornings

The extensive programme of your holiday will often involve early starts on most days. This will give you as much time as possible in the cities you visit and ensure you return to you hotel in time for dinner each day.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Entrance fees

Since some attractions visited offer free admission to visitors at certain times of year, we do not include entrance fees. These will be payable locally where applicable. This applies to excursions that are included in the price of your holiday and to excursions booked as optional extras.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Changes to your hotel

This holiday is very popular, and we have limited rooms in the hotels described. If demand is high on a particular date we may accommodate you in an alternative hotel, of a similar standard, in a convenient location for the tour. Full details of your hotel will be sent with your Joining Instructions.

Italian hotel room tax

Some regions of Italy have introduced a room tax of between 1 EURO and 3 EURO per person per night, payable directly by the guest to the hotel on check-out. You will be advised by your tour manager in resort if a particular hotel is implementing this charge.

Airport development fees

An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Durham Tees Valley, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

*Low deposit of £50 applies to new bookings made between 1st July and 31st August 2016 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to all 2016 to 2018 air breaks excluding the American Queen - Mississippi River Cruise; Deep South Rhythms, New Orleans and Caribbean Cruise; Five-Star Alaska Cruise and the Canadian Rockies; Highlights of China and Yangtze Cruise; Any world cruises or sectors aboard Magellan that include flights; Cruises aboard Norwegian Star that include flights; Cruises aboard Mendula that include flights; Cruises aboard Astoria that include flights; Cruises aboard Olympia that include flights; Cruises aboard Sound of Music that include flights and Daniel O'Donnell in Dublin by Air.

BARBARA

North Yorkshire coast Couple
This was a fantastic introduction to Italy. Our tour manager Bill shared his excellent local knowledge with us and guided us all (at a suitably sedate pace in the blazing sunshine) to the various cities, always pointing out the location of toilets and the best places to buy the amazing ice creams!
Yes there's a lot of travelling but the coach was comfortable and gave us a chance to sit back and watch the Italian countryside go by or have a snooze. The hotels were all clean and comfortable, the food was generally tasty (we certainly didn't go hungry, though there was a lot of pork!) and our fellow travellers were friendly.
We feel this holiday represents really good value for money and would recommend it to anyone wanting a taste of Italy.

If you have not been to Italy before, this is the holiday for you. I would recommend comfortable footwear as there is a lot of walking, but so worthwhile. A few very early mornings too!
Our tour manager, David, was superb. He has a great sense of humour, is very knowledgeable, he made our holiday, an all round nice guy.
