Day one

Fly to Italy, and transfer to Torbole and Hotel Geier. After check-in, spend the rest of your day relaxing.

Day two

After a relaxing morning, join our optional excursion to Verona. Explore this historic backdrop for the tragic tale of Juliet and her Romeo, and home to the famous opera season held yearly in its Roman amphitheatre and bustling, cafe-lined Piazza Bra.

Day three

Join today's optional excursion to explore Venice. With its labyrinth of alleys and waterways, spectacular St Mark's square and cathedral, the Doge's palace, the Rialto bridge and the mystique of the Palace of Prisons and the Bridge of Sighs.

Day four

Today we leave Torbole and head into the Dolomites, a region of jagged peaks and green meadows dotted with Alpine villages. The leisurely day will include a stop at Bolzano, famed for its local wine. In the afternoon you'll cross into Austria and head to Gotzens, calling en route at the border town of Vipiteno.

Day five

Our next, full-day optional excursion is to the Imperial city of Innsbruck. After a chance to see the Wilten monastery and Olympic ski-jump, we'll enter Innsbruck through the historic triumphal arch. Our guided tour will reveal the historic old town, the main street and the famous copper-tiled 'Golden Roof' built for Emperor Maximillian I. After the tour, stop for coffee and cake before we head to the unusual, but spectacular, Swarovski Crystal Worlds. See crystals large and small, and artworks by the likes of Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali, in a highly original setting 'guarded' by a green 'giant', one of the most unusual sights of the whole holiday.

Day six

On today's optional excursion you'll discover Salzburg. The birthplace of Mozart is also forever associated with 'The Sound of Music', and you'll travel through the Alpine scenery so familiar from the film to this city that nestles beneath Hohensalzburg castle.

Day seven

Our final full day in the Tyrol gives you the chance to rest and relax, or join our last optional excursion and leave behind the green valleys, heading for the frozen heights of the Hintertux glacier. Take a scenic rail journey through stunning landscape to a wilderness of ice and snow. Have a glass of schnapps, and then take the coach to the foot of the Hintertux.

Day eight

Bid auf wiedersehen to the Tyrol, as we board the coach for our journey to the airport to catch our flight home.
