Resort Information

The spa-resort of Chianciano Terme, 60 miles from Florence, boasts a wonderful climate. It comprises two settlements - the old hill-town and the modern spa town below it - and offers some excellent shops as well as many small gelaterie, bars, cafes and restaurants.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Italy and transfer to Chianciano Terme and your hotel.

Day Two

Revel in the wonders of Florence, Italy's beautiful Renaissance capital, on our first included excursion. See the magnificent Florentine skyline, explore Santa Croce and cross the medieval Ponte Vecchio. For art lovers, the Accademia houses Michelangelo's peerless statue of David, and the Uffizi, Botticelli's exquisite 'Birth of Venus' (gallery entry is payable locally).

Day Three

Siena, our destination on today's included excursion, is one of the most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe - its centrepiece the shell-shaped piazza where the traditional 'Palio' horse race is held each year. From here, we head to spectacular, hill-top San Gimignano, with its beautiful towers, medieval walls and cathedral.

Day Four

Our first optional excursion offers a wonderful introduction to the Eternal City, Rome. Discover the Vatican, St Peter's Basilica, Michelangelo's sublime Sistine Chapel ceiling, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. Afterwards, you're free to soak up the atmosphere of the city that gave us "la dolce vita".

Day Five

On our second optional excursion we'll travel to ancient Perugia in neighbouring Umbria. Stroll its famous people-watching street, the Corso Vannucci, and see its cathedral and medieval centre before heading on to Assisi, birthplace of Italy's patron Saint, and home to Umbria's greatest glory - the magnificent Basilica.

Day Six

Spend the day relaxing at the hotel, or explore the surrounding area. Our Tour Manager will be happy to suggest places to visit and things to do.

Day Seven

On today's optional excursion you'll discover the delights of 'Chianti-shire', a region of rolling hills and walled towns usually bathed in golden sunlight. Visit ancient Castelnuovo Berardenga; beautiful, fortified Monteriggioni; and Radda in the region's very heart. You'll also have opportunities for wine tasting and sampling local delicacies at two working Chianti vineyards.

Day Eight

Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately two hours from Rome and Pisa, and four hours from Naples.

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.

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.

Entrance fees

Since certain attractions visited offer free admission to visitors aged under 18 and over 65, 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.

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 or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Italian hotel room tax

Some regions of Italy have introduced a room tax of between 1 EURO and 3 EURO 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.
