  • Fly to Italy, where you’ll be met by your Tour Manager, and transfer to your hotel in the heart of the Italian Alps. After check in you’re free to explore the local area or spend the rest of the day relaxing before dinner this evening.

  • Today you’ll have time to rest and relax at your hotel, perhaps making use of the pool and spa facilities in the wellness centre, or treating yourself to the extra Christmas gift of a massage or beauty treatment (payable locally). Alternatively, stroll into the nearby village of Cavareno, or join today’s optional excursion to Innsbruck. With its onion-domed churches and historic old town surrounded by scenic mountains, the city is the perfect winter wonderland. Explore the many stalls of the delightful Christmas Market held underneath the famous ‘Golden Roof’, and on elegant Maria-Theresien-Strasse, before returning to the hotel for dinner.

  • Your wonderful, memorable Christmas Day begins with a leisurely breakfast followed by a morning visit to Merano, a celebrated spa town that was once the favoured refuge of Empress Elisabeth of Austria - Sisi. Here there may be the chance to enjoy a morning coffee and slice of traditional apfel strudel in a cafe before you return to the hotel to enjoy a traditional Christmas turkey lunch.

    Spend your afternoon relaxing, before the evening’s celebration gala dinner with music rounds off your perfect Christmas Day.

  • Our final optional excursion gives you the chance to visit Verona, on the banks of the River Adige. The iconic setting for Shakespeare’s tale of “Juliet and her Romeo” is a maze of medieval streets that feed gradually down to the marble-paved Piazza Bra – which itself shelters in the shadow of Verona’s vast Roman amphitheatre. Explore this fascinating city, before returning to the hotel for your last evening in Italy.

  • Say a fond farewell to your hotel and all your newfound friends, today, before you head back to the airport to board your flight home.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 3 hours.

  • Shops in Europe will generally close from early afternoon on Christmas Eve until 27th December. Included tours and excursions have been chosen for their scenic or historic value.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Please note that for two people travelling together on one booking, or a single traveller, one piece of hold luggage is included. Additional hold luggage may be purchased at the time of booking at a cost of £40 per bag.
  • Visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.
  • From 1 January 2021, new rules apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    British passport holders need to have at least six months left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old.
    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You may also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be valid. It’s particularly important you have travel insurance with the right cover if you have a pre-existing medical condition. This is because the EHIC scheme covers pre-existing conditions, while many travel insurance policies do not. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.
    Mobile Roaming
    From 1 January 2021, the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will end.
    Check with your phone operator to find out about any roaming charges you might get from 1 January 2021.
