Florence, Siena and Tuscany

Day one

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

Day two

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 three

Siena, our destination on today's included excursion, is one of the best 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 hill-top San Gimignano, with its towers, medieval walls and cathedral.

Day four

Our first optional excursion offers an introduction to Rome. Visit the Vatican, St Peter's Basilica, Michelangelo's 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 the Basilica.

Day six

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

Day seven

On today's optional excursion you'll discover 'Chianti-shire', a region of rolling hills and walled towns. Visit ancient Castelnuovo Berardenga; 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.

Grand Hotel Fortuna

This fine, four-star hotel is located in a very peaceful location, approximately one mile from the centre of Chanciano Terme.

Hotel Plaza

The family-run four star Hotel Plaza is located close to the shops, bars and restaurants of Chianciano Terme, in the modern part of this fine resort.
