Your Itinerary

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

  • Fly to Italy, and transfer to your hotel, set within the historic Porta Nuova district of Verona.

  • Today, you’ll explore ‘fair Verona’, the historical backdrop for the tragic tale of ‘Juliet and her Romeo’ and home to the opera season held yearly in its Roman amphitheatre. You’ll be led down the cobblestone lanes by your tour manager before heading into the welcoming warmth of a café on Piazza Bra.

  • A visit to Lake Garda will be the focus of today, as you join the coach in the company of your tour manager and head to the spa resort of Sirmione, home to healing waters and the fairy-tale Rocca Scaligera castle. You’ll board a boat for a leisurely cruise towards the Grotte di Catullo, then head northwest passing the island of Garda and shoreside resorts of Gardone and Fasano before sailing south back to Sirmione.

    After the cruise, you’ll go to Bardolino for further exploration of one of Lake Garda’s most popular resorts and return to your hotel for dinner in the evening.

  • An unmissable optional excursion involves travelling by train to Venice – one of the world’s most beautiful cities, perhaps even more so during the winter months. Wander through its labyrinth of alleys and waterways, passing spectacular St Mark's Square and Cathedral, the bell tower, the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge, the Palace of Prisons, and the Bridge of Sighs.

  • It’s New Year’s Eve, and you can opt for a day of relaxing or join an optional excursion to historic Trento. Set in the shadow of Monte Bondone, Trento is home to a variety of atmospheric Christmas Markets – perfect for picking up some gifts to take home.

    You’ll return to the hotel to unwind before feasting on a special four-course dinner while enjoying live music, a glass of sparkling wine and a slice of panettone as the clock strikes midnight.

  • Begin the new year with a lazy day of lounging and perhaps recuperating from the celebrations, either in your hotel or in a snug spot in Verona.

    This charming festive break will be concluded with a final dinner at your hotel.

  • You’ll be transferred back to the airport to check-in for your flight home.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour from Verona, two hours from Milan Bergamo and three hours from Milan Malpensa.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.

    Passport

    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.

    Visa

    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.
