Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Italy, meet your tour manager and transfer to your hotel. Settle in and unwind, before an included welcome drink before dinner brings the opportunity to meet with fellow guests, no doubt looking forward to a wonderful break ahead.

Day 2

After breakfast, join today’s included excursion to the former Roman settlement of Trento, the principal town of Italian Trentino, with its wonderful mountain-backed setting looking all the more special during the festive season. Wander the colourful streets and visit the Christmas market, which is held in two places: the Piazza Fiera square and Piazza Cesare Battisti square. The foodstuffs on offer, at the market and in the surrounding restaurants, fuse the flavours of the north with the tastes of the Mediterranean south. If you have time, don’t miss the chance to visit the ancient Duomo cathedral or the vast Buonconsiglio Castle.

Day 3

Today’s included excursion is to Bolzano, a delightful town set amongst slumbering vineyards in the heart of the wine-growing Alto-Adige region, surrounded by the towering, craggy peaks of the scenic Dolomite Mountains. The town is the undisputed ‘Italian Capital of Christmas’, and the wonderful Christmas market on the central Piazza Walther lives up to this reputation. Local crafts folk – including glassblowers and wood-carvers – ply their wares to a wonderfully scenic backdrop. Every inch a wine town, Bolzano offers countless opportunities for sampling the excellent local vintages, and the chance to take back a bottle or two for your own Christmas table.

Day 4

Today you’ll have time to rest and relax at your hotel, perhaps making use of the spa facilities in the wellness centre, or join the optional excursion to Austrian Innsbruck. With its onion-domed churches and historic old town surrounded by scenic mountains, the city is the perfect winter wonderland. Explore the many stalls of the delightful Christmas market held underneath the famous golden roof, and on elegant Maria-Theresien-Strasse, before returning to the hotel for dinner and a final evening in the Dolomites.

Day 5

Transfer to the airport and return to the UK today at the end of a wonderful festive break in the Dolomites. Back to top
