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 upon arrival meet your Tour Manager and board the coach for the transfer through the Tuscan countryside to Montecatini.

Day Two

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

Day Three

The first of the included excursions heads to the beautiful Ligurian coast, where some of Italy's most famous resorts are dotted along the shoreline, backed by wooded hills, and a Mecca for visitors from the across the globe. Elegant Santa Margherita Ligure overlooks a stunning bay, and lies at the eastern end of the Portofino headland. Spend some time exploring the resort, then board a boat for a trip along the coast to discover its ultra-chic neighbour, the world-renowned 'jetset' watering hole of Portofino itself, which despite the crowds, the glitz and the glamour, remains one of the Mediterranean's most idyllic settings.

Day Four

Our second included tour is to two true Italian gems. You'll firstly visit the wonderful city of Pisa, where, in the company of our guide, there'll be an opportunity to explore this mesmerising medieval treasure trove, built on the banks of the River Arno, and where the broad green swathe of the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles) is home not only to the startling 'leaning tower' but also the huge circular Baptistery, the great marbled Duomo and the colonnaded Campo Santo cemetery.

Following a fascinating visit you'll reboard the coach for the journey to the elegant walled city of Lucca, a simply delightful Renaissance jewel that was the birthplace of the composer Puccini. The city's most famous son is celebrated with a museum at his home. Elsewhere, the ancient cathedral, the Torre della Ore and the exquisite Piazza Anfiteatro, built around the Roman amphitheatre, are amongst the 'must sees' in this charming city.

Day Five

Another day of gentle exploration in Montecatini, enjoying the atmosphere of the spa-town.

Day Six

Today will be one of the undoubted highlights of the holiday, as you enjoy our included tour of truly stunning Florence, which is for many the country's most beautiful city. See for yourself the magnificent Florentine skyline, dominated by the dome of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, and explore the splendour of Santa Croce and the medieval Ponte Vecchio bridge, spared by the retreating Nazis because of its timeless beauty. Of course, Florence is the city of both the Acaddemia, which houses Michelangelo's fabled statue of David, and the Uffizi, where Botticelli's famous 'Birth of Venus' can be admired, should you choose to visit the galleries (payable locally).

Day Seven

Relax in the resort, or join us on today's optional excursion, which heads into the Tuscan countryside to explore the exquisite hill towns of Volterra, Certaldo and UNESCO-listed medieval gem San Gimignano. Set high above the Cecina and Dell'Era valleys, Etruscan Volterra is beautifully preserved, with its ancient walls surrounding a medieval core, at the heart of which is a stunning Romanesque cathedral and the ornate Piazza del Priori, lined with beautiful palazzi. You'll also take in the Roman amphitheatre, uncovered in 1951.

No less fascinating is the charming 'twin-town' of Certaldo, the 'newer' lower town nestled beneath the upper, fortified Certaldo alto, with its ancient gates and defensive walls. Saving the best until last, San Gimignano, with its fairy-tale towers rising from the hill-top village, is one of the finest sights in all Italy, and a fitting crowning glory to a wonderful holiday.

Day Eight

Bid farewell to your Tuscan hosts as you journey back to the airport and the return flight, at the end of a marvellous holiday.

Further Information

2018 departures

Please note that on 2018 departures the optional excursion offered on Day Seven will be a day trip into the Tuscan countryside to visit Volterra, Certaldo and San Gimignano.

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 € and 3 € 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 £49 per person applies to new bookings made between 21st June and 31st July 2017 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to selected air-inclusive holidays. This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.

Good outward journey (apart from queues at Manchester due to Jet 2 luggage belts breaking down but not a Newmarket problem! Tour manager waiting for us so no delays. Holiday was well organised, not a relaxing holiday but we knew that from the start. Saw lots of beautiful places and also did optional tours. Hotel nice and clean, food good. Hotel Staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

LINDA

Caerphilly Couple
The hotel was comfortable and dinner was listed 7.30-9.30 which we assumed meant we could sit down to eat between those times. If we arrived at say 8.00 we found our starters already on the table!!! During one meal my husband's plate was removed and replaced by the next course while he was still eating!! The transfer from Venice via Verona on a small coach was cramped and uneccesarily long and had I realised I would have cancelled the holiday - the trip took 5 hours from the airport.
The tour guide in Florence did not understand we had a long coach trip and his presentation although informative was overly-long with too many stopes standing in full sun.
