Your Itinerary

Day One: Fly to Olbia

Fly to Olbia, where our Tour Manager will be waiting to meet you. The hotel is just a short coach ride from the airport, and, depending on your time of arrival, you'll be free to spend the rest of the day relaxing or perhaps wandering into town.

Day Two: Included excursion to the Costa Smeralda

Join us on an excursion to the Costa Smeralda, 20 kilometres of tastefully developed, reclaimed coastline that has become a playground of the wealthy. Hidden coves, offshore islets and the unusual architecture of the 'capital' Porto Cervo all add to the charm of this unique location. You'll also have free time to swim and enjoy lunch in the beautiful Baia di Sardinia.

Day Three: Visit to Alghero

A picturesque fishing port, Alghero is the Spanish-influenced main town of Sardinia's north-west coast. The cobbled streets of its Old Quarter weave past the cathedral and open onto a harbour lined with bars and restaurants while, out in the bay, the long mass of Capo Caccia lies across the water like a slumbering giant.

Day Four: Bonifacio and a train ride to the haute ville

Today we'll leave Italy behind, heading to the port of Santa Teresa di Gallura to catch the ferry to the French island of Corsica. We'll disembark in the stunning natural harbour of Bonifacio, where the tourist train will take you up to the haute ville to take in the views (or simply relax in a quayside cafe).

You'll have time for lunch in one of the many local restaurants before our coach carries you north, through the rolling green landscape, to Porticcio and your second hotel.

Day Five: Included guided tour of Ajaccio

The capital of Corsica and the island's largest city, Ajaccio shelters at the northern end of one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful bays. It is also famous as the place where Napoleon was born in 1769. Discover its 15th-century citadel, cafes, restaurants and many monuments to the Little Emperor on a half-day guided tour then continue exploring or return to your hotel to relax.

Day Six: Included west coast tour and optional cruise

Our final included excursion takes us further up Corsica's west coast to Scandola Nature Reserve and the twisting inlets and outcrops of the Calanques de Piana. Here the elements have shaped and shifted the pink granite landscape into forms that seem almost alive. We'll follow the road past Piana's pastel houses to Porto's harbour and pebble beach, and you'll have time to explore here before returning to the coach or joining an optional 90-minute cruise along the coast for the very best views.

Day Seven: Relax in Porticcio

Spend today relaxing. Head to the nearby beaches, make the most of your hotel's facilities or head back into Ajaccio to explore a little more.

Day Eight: Flight back to the UK

Say a fond farewell to your hotel and Corsica, this morning as we cross back to Bonifacio, take the ferry to Sardinia and wind our way back to Olbia in time to catch your flight home.

Sardinia and Corsica Touring Hotels 

You will be staying in two good hotels, both of which will be of at least European four-star standard.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 15 minutes. On departure, the transfer time from your hotel to the airport will take approximately five hours, including the ferry crossing from Corsica to Sardinia.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

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.
