Welcome to Montecatini

Perhaps sample a glass or 2 of Chianti over one of our included dinners in a charming local restaurant?

Visit to Florence

A full day in Florence, picturesquely situated on both sides of the River Arno, will give us time to explore the cultural sites and soak up the atmosphere of ‘la Bella’ (the beautiful), so-called by the Italians. Stroll across the Ponte Vecchio, wander through the Piazza della Signoria and marvel at the astonishing abundance of art treasures and magnificent statues this ‘city of art’ is famously known for.

Siena

A full day of sightseeing takes us to the city of Siena with its maze of steep and narrow streets. Nestling in the Tuscan Hills, this vibrant university city is also one of the greatest art centres of Italy with a profusion of fine architecture.

Lucca & Pisa

We also include a day trip to Lucca and Pisa. Lucca is a colourful and ancient city rich in cultural heritage, with an urban centre completely enclosed by fortifying walls. This fascinating city has many churches, monuments and gardens to explore. We then move on to Pisa to explore the mystery of the famous Leaning Tower.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.
