Resort Information

A delightful Tuscan spa resort, Montecatini Terme is close to many of the province's greatest cities. As well as the spa baths, it boasts beautiful parks, countless eateries and bars. Above the main town, and reached by a historic funicular railway, medieval Montecatini Alto's piazza and winding streets are lined with ancient churches and elegant palazzos.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Italy and board the coach for the transfer through the Tuscan countryside to Montecatini.

Day Two

Today you're free to get to know the hotel and the many treasures of this historic spa resort, perhaps paying a first visit to Montecatini Alto for its stunning views.

Day Three

Discover the beautiful Ligurian coast, where some of Italy's most famous resorts are dotted along the shoreline. Explore elegant Santa Margherita Ligure, which overlooks a stunning bay, before enjoying a boat trip along the coast to its ultra-chic neighbour, Portofino, for a taste of "la dolce vita".

Day Four

Today, see the Italian gems of Pisa and Lucca. Discover Pisa's medieval delights - the famous 'leaning tower', circular Baptistery and mightly Duomo - on a guided tour before we continue to the elegant walled city of Lucca. Here the medieval clock tower, the Torre della Ore, and the exquisite Piazza Anfiteatro are just some of the must-see sights.

Day Five

Enjoy another day of gentle exploration in Montecatini, as you soak up the charming atmosphere of the spa-town.

Day Six

The magnificent Florentine skyline, dominated by the dome of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore greets you on today's excursion. Explore the splendour of Santa Croce and the medieval Ponte Vecchio, discover Italy's artistic past in the Accademia or the Uffizi (payable locally), and watch the world go by in one of the trattorie.

Day Seven

An optional excursion will return to the Ligurian coast, heading to the Cinque Terre (Five Lands). This entrancing quintet of ancient villages is squeezed into a series of tiny coves surrounded by celebrated vineyards. Overlooked by working fishing harbours, the breathtaking villages produce some of Liguria's most celebrated wines.

Day Eight

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

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 45 minutes from Pisa, approximately two hours and 30 minutes from Verona, approximately three hours from Rome and approximately three hours 45 minutes from Malpensa.

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.

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.

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. In some instances, individual guests who have booked with the hotel independently may be offered a different menu from those who are staying at the hotel as part of a package tour.

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.

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.

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.

PAULINE

DERBY
i FOUND THE HOLIDAY VERY TIRING , PARTICULARLY FLORENCE WHERE THE PAVEMENTS ARE SO BAD. I THINK THE STARTING TIMES OF THE TRIPS SHOULD BE SHOWN IN THE BROCHURE AS SOME ARE VERY EARLY. THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY FOR THE ELDERLY AND THIS SHOULD ALSO BE MENTIONED. SOME TRIPS COULD BE HALF DAYS. THERE WAS NO ONE TO POINT OUT THE HISTORY OF MONTECATINI WHICH IS A BEAUTIFUL TOWN WITH ITS HEY DAY IN THE TWENTIES AND THIRTIES.

JANE

Swadlincote Couple
The week we chose - October 19 was the final week of this holiday for the season so the size of the group was quite small - 24 people split between 2 hotels in the resort of Montecatini. Because of this we got to know the rest of the group. Our hotel (Adua) was excellent. The room was clean and we were pleased we hadn't paid extra for a balcony as we were at the back of the hotel which was quieter. We purchased a small kettle on the first day so that we could make a brew when we wanted. Breakfast far exceeded expectations as there was a huge selection including eggs and bacon. Dinner was a four course meal of excellent quality and varied menu. The organised trips gave us a flavour of the region and Sally our tour manager was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Wrong flight time for outward journey which was not updated and no stated return landing terminal at Gatwick which caused problems for our parking arrangemednts.
Portofino trip was spoiled because of lack of information with regard to local visitor sites which were closed so the trip became almost a wasted day.

Nottingham Friends
I went with a friend - my first holiday with Newmarket. We upgraded hotels which proved to be a good decision as we were right in the centre of Monticatini. The hotel Adua was was very comfortable and we were looked after very well. Trips were brilliant - lots of walking along ancient city cobbled walkways.
