Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Italy and transfer to your hotel in the Tuscan spa town of Chianciano Terme, by coach.

Day Two

Siena is one of the most immaculate medieval cities in Europe. On our guided tour you'll discover its magnificent Duomo cathedral, a masterpiece of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, and see the shell-shaped piazza il Campo, site of the annual, traditional Palio horse race and a space described with some justification as "the most beautiful square in the world".

Day Three

Today has been left free for you to spend relaxing at the hotel, or exploring Chianciano and the surrounding area.

Day Four

Today we'll visit Rome, one of the world's most breathtaking cities. Discover the relics of its ancient past in the Colosseum and the Forum on our guided tour, throw a coin into a Baroque fountain, and cross the Tiber to the Vatican City, where the great dome of St Peter's looks over the vast Square. Afterwards, relax in a pavement cafe and soak up the atmosphere of the place that invented la dolce vita!

Day Five

On today's optional excursion you'll explore Assisi, the centuries-old place of pilgrimage at the heart of which is the great Basilica of St Francis. Here, the outstanding art collection of the Upper Church, including the famous Giotti frescoes, is matched in by the timeless works of Lorenzetti and Martini in the Lower Church.

We'll also visit Montepulciano, a lovely hill-top town just north of Chianciano Terme. Wander the twisting alleyways around the cathedral and main square, and perhaps stop at the lovely Caffe Poliziano for something to eat and some spectacular views.

Day Six

Today we'll head to Piombino, on the Tuscan coast, and cross the blue waters to the island of Elba.

Once home-in-exile to Napoleon Bonaparte, Elba is a popular beach destination with a colourful capital - Portoferraio. Stroll through the maze of alleys in the wonderful old town, and maybe visit Palazzina dei Mulini, Napoleon's ornate residence/prison on the cliffs overlooking the harbour.

Day Seven

Our final optional excursion will take you to ancient Castelnuovo Berardenga, beautiful fortified Monteriggioni, and Radda-in-Chianti as you spend a day exploring the vineyards, hills and walled towns of Chianti. Visit a vineyard, enjoy a wine tasting and soak up the sunshine on your final full day in Italy.

Day Eight

Leave the lovely Tuscan countryside behind as you return to the airport to check in for your flight home.

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.

Changes to your hotels
