Umbria, Perugia & Assisi
7 nights Flying from Dublin
18 Sept 2019 £1039

Unreservedly romantic and deeply influenced by religion, it's capable of stirring emotion in a way that's unrivalled worldwide.

Hidden Italy:
Padova, Vicenza & Mantova
5 nights from Dublin
02 May £769
17 Sept £789

Uncover the unseen gems of the breathtaking Veneto and beyond: astonishing architecture, cities steeped in history with deep cultural connections, and some of Italy’s best wines.

The mere mention of the Veneto conjures up images of Venice, the ‘floating city of canals’, but there is so much more to discover in this northeastern region. The lush plains of the Po are dramatically offset by the rugged peaks of the Dolomites rising majestically to form the northwestern border, while the mirror-like Adriatic to the south embraces the gently curving Venetian coast. To the west is picturesque Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake, surrounded by pretty villages on its flower-laden banks.

  • Stay in medieval Castelfranco with fantastic views of the walled old town
  • Experience extraordinary Vicenza, both ancient and modern, and the best place to view Palladio’s architectural masterpieces – complimentary museum pass included
  • Visit atmospheric Mantova, the inspiration for artists, poets and composers
  • Stroll through the beautiful gardens of Sigurtà Park and see an Italian interpretation of an English garden
  • See the enchanting riverside town of Bassano del Grappa in the foothills of the Prealps, and sample its famous liqueur
  • Tour Villa Sandi, the palatial headquarters of a renowned Prosecco producer, and its impressive underground cellars
  • Enjoy a relaxing cruise on the Brenta Canal and see the elegant Venetian villas of the elite
  • Visit ancient Padova with its astonishing array of architectural styles and the famed university where Galileo once taught

Puglia, Lecce,  & Vieste - Undiscovered Italy
7 nights flying from Dublin 
2019
20 May   £1099
17 Jun    £1119
16 Sep     £1109
14 Oct     £879

Puglia, little-known, ruggedly beautiful, fringed by the sea – where the magnificent architecture of Lecce and Bari, coastal charm of Vieste, ‘hobbit’-like conical trulli and local cuisine offer a delightfully different experience of Italy. Blessed with abundant sunshine and fringed by the bountiful waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Puglia is a land of plenty. One of the most fertile regions of Italy, it produces more olive oil than the rest of the country combined, most of its fish, 80 per cent of Europe’s pasta and more wine than the whole of Germany. Unsurprisingly, its natural riches have attracted a host of invaders throughout history – ancient Greeks colonised the area in the 8th century BC, then came the Romans, Byzantines, Saracens, Normans, Spanish and Bourbons, before Puglia became part of unified Italy in 1861. Each culture has left a distinct footprint, from the local dialect peppered with Greek expressions to the Moorish ambience of the narrow streets of Bari, where traders’ wares spill out onto the cobbled streets. It is this melding of cultures that makes Puglia – the ‘heel’ of Italy’s great ‘boot’ – delightfully different.

  • Guided tour of Lecce, one of Italy's finest baroque towns, often compared to Florence
  • Visit Alberobello with the unique trulli houses, set amidst stunning Tuscan-like countryside
  • Guided tour of Matera, the amazing medieval cave village and UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Guided tour of Bari’s old town, once home to ancient Greeks, Saracens and Normans, with a remarkable Romanesque cathedral
  • Tour the beautiful national park and crusader church of Monte Sant’Angelo, one of Europe’s most important medieval pilgrimage sites and where Archangel Michael appeared
  • Learn the fascinating craft of pasta-making and enjoy a light lunch at a family-run osteria
  • Return travel from a selection of regional airports, plus all hotel transfers
  • Seven nights in conveniently located 4-star accommodation inclusive of all local taxes, plus breakfast and dinner (three dinners at carefully selected local restaurants)
  • Services of our experienced tour manager throughout
