Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • You'll meet your tour manager in the airport when you arrive in France, cross the Italian border and continue to your hotel. Check in and settle into your comfortable surroundings. Depending on your flight time, you may have time to enjoy a refreshing drink on the terrace or a stroll along the shore before dinner is served.

  • Today you're free to rest and relax in the hotel and its surroundings. Take a dip in the pool, or retreat to the private beach - where there will be a restaurant and bar, and sun-loungers are available for hire for lazy afternoons in the sun. The more energetic can rent a pedalo or stroll along the seafront promenade and into the resort's old town, to explore its shops, cafés and bars.

  • The first of our included excursions heads to the beautiful Ligurian coast, where some of Italy's most famous resorts are dotted along a shoreline backed by wooded hills. Here, elegant Santa Margherita Ligure, and its gardens and piazzas, overlooks a stunning bay and lies at the northern 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 jet-set watering hole of Portofino.

    Despite the crowds and the glitz and the glamour, Portofino remains one of the Mediterranean's most idyllic settings. Stroll the café-lined harbour front, window-shop in the resort's chic stores, or perhaps people-watch from a seat on the shore, delicious ice-cream in hand. You'll also visit bustling Rapallo, a one-time writers' retreat that boasted D H Lawrence among its more celebrated guests.

    Return to your hotel for dinner, at the end of a fascinating day.

  • Today's excursion takes you to the Principality of Monaco - the Monte Carlo of fabulous wealth, the famous Casino and a harbour crammed with improbably expensive yachts - round which the super-charged cars of Formula 1™ hurtle in an annual explosion of colour and noise. Step inside the Casino to try your luck or watch others trying theirs, see the Palais Princier, home to the principality's ruling family - the Royal Grimaldis.

    The journey to Monaco takes you above the beautiful Riviera dei Fiori - the celebrated Italian Riviera of Flowers - and will offer some sensational views of the blue Mediterranean below as well as a visit to the colourful border town of Ventimiglia.

  • Enjoy another restful day in the hotel, around the town or on the beach, making the most of your idyllic surroundings.

  • Our last included excursion takes you back along the Ligurian coast to the stunning stretch, between the resort-town of Levanto and the port-city of La Spezia, known as Cinque Terre (Five Lands) after a quintet of ancient villages that are squeezed into a series of its tiny coves.

    Breathtaking and charming, the five villages cling to the cliffs, surrounded by vineyards producing some of Liguria's most celebrated wines, and overlook working fishing harbours. The tiny craft make for a colourful sight against the dark blue waters that's best viewed from a shore-side café.

  • Spend a last day soaking up the atmosphere of your Mediterranean retreat, before enjoying a farewell dinner of typical Ligurian fare.

  • Bid "Arrivederci" to your hosts, re-board the coach and transfer back to the airport to check in for your flight home to the UK at the end of a holiday in this wonderful corner of Italy.

Further Information

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

  • The facilities on the hotel's private beach are open from June to September.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Visit to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

  • Rules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. 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 though.


    Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be:

    • Less than 10 years old on the day you return home – please check the "date of issue"
    • Valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home – please check the "expiry date"

    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.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    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 will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. 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.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

    Mobile Roaming

    Roaming charges are applied by some UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
