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.

*Low deposit of £50 applies to new bookings made between 1st July and 31st August 2016 (inclusive) only.

Excellent holiday with an exceptional tour manager in Sally Jenkins. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The hotel was very comfortable with friendly and helpful staff,and the food was excellent and plenty of it. We stayed at The Adua which was in central Montecatini so convenient for local amenities and historic sites. We will definitely go with Newmarket Holidays again.

Generaly on the whole very good. Location of hotel was good which enabled us to go out of an evening and explore our surrounding. Whereby other holiday hotels have been to far away to do anything after our evening meal
Sally our tour managed managed a very awkward situation whereby one of our party members went missing. She was thoughtful in trying to deal with the situation as well recognising the resr of the party's needs

MICHAEL

Leighton Buzzard Couple
Our tour manager Sally Newton was excellent. Very considerate & helpful. She had a particularly difficult situation to manage when one of the holiday guests failed to show up at the meeting point on time after an excursion, which placed Sally in a difficult situation as she was clearly concerned that the guest an elderly lady travelling on her own may need assistance, and to balance that scenario with a bus load of other travelers who were keen to get onto the nest location. In the end Sally found an acceptable compromise which ultimately meant the remaining party could still experience the next destination, and the elderly lady eventually returned to the hotel. In regards to the hotel, whilst the food in the included meals was perfectly acceptable, the evening meal was a little bland.

I really enjoyed this holiday, the trips and excursion were wonderful as were the tour staff and hotel staff. The food was mostly boring and not much variety, although one or two meals were acceptable. The weather was great and i made some good friends.

All very good. It would have been better if we had flown into Pisa and thus cutting out the three and a half hour coach journey from Verona.

Transfer times from the airport to the hotel and return journey were far too long and a packed breakfast on the return journey was supplied.
The Airline was acceptable.
The local guides,Sabrina, Anna, Paulo,and Ilyana, were very informative about the places we visited.
The Adua hotel, the swimming pool,and the food, we enjoyed and the staff were very helpful and was overall acceptable we had a balcony overlooking the swimming pool with a table and two chairs and sun blind.
We did not attend any optional excursions.
