2018 - Hotel L’Alba, Marina di Pietrasanta - 8 Days (AED0205)
Tuscany has long held a special place in the hearts of British visitors, who find its gentle landscapes of treeclad hills and red-roofed, sun-baked buildings both uplifting and relaxing. Its jewel, of course, is the peerless city of Florence, closely followed by ancient Pisa, with its incomparable clutch of spectacular buildings. Marina di Pietrasanta is a beach resort on the Versilia Riviera, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, 8km north of Viareggio. The sea, beach, pinewoods and mountains that surround the resort bestow a tranquil air, whilst the resort itself offers plenty to see and do for the visitor. The shoreline is home to a variety of bars and cafés, which overlook the wide sandy beaches.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Lucca & Pisa
One of the oldest cities in Tuscany, and the home of composer Puccini, Lucca offers a tangle of narrow, cobbled streets, laced with churches, chapels and pretty piazzas. Mention Pisa and it’s impossible for the famous Leaning Tower not to spring to mind. Situated in Campo dei Miracoli, the medieval bell tower is part of Pisa’s famous architectural trio, harking back to its former glory days. Alongside the ‘Tower’ is the equally impressive Duomo (cathedral) and the Baptistery.
Along the coast to La Spezia
Join our coach for an excursion to nautical La Spezia. The seafront here is wide and provides lots of opportunities for gawping at boats of all sizes. A strip of park runs along the esplanade, making it a pleasant place for a stroll or a sit-down. There are also luxuriant parks, owing their existence to the turn-of-the century lavishness that is also commemorated in the town’s architecture and public buildings. Via del Prione is one of La Spezia’s busiest streets, a largely-pedestrianised thoroughfare.
Florence by rail - with guided walking tour
Visit the birthplace of the Renaissance, a veritable treasure-house of art and architecture. Of all the great Italian cities, this is one of the best-loved. The huge terracotta dome of the cathedral was designed by Brunelleschi to dwarf the buildings of ancient Greece and Rome, and it still dominates the skyline today. Enjoy a walk to the Piazzale Michelangelo, where you will be able to look out over the entire city spread along the banks of the Arno. Shop for jewellery on the famous Ponte Vecchio; join art-lovers from around the world at the Uffizi, Bargello and Accademia; and linger over coffee in the Piazza della Signoria, the impressive city square.
