MONDAY

We will meet at the airport at 5.05am for our Air Malta flight departing at 7.35am and arriving in Rome Fiumicino Airport at 09.00am. We board our coach and drive to Montecatini Alto which is a characteristic medieval village, situated a few hundred metres above the ‘new’ town. The views are splendid! We later proceed to our 4-star Hotel Grand Plaza in Montecatini, popular for its wonderful scenery, thermal baths and the Chianti wine.

TUESDAY

Today, we will go on our full-day optional excursion to Florence, the birth place of the Renaissance. Here, we see, amongst others, the complex of three attractions – the Duomo, the Baptistery and Giotto’s Steeple. We will visit Piazza Signoria which is the meeting place of Florentines and tourists, and proceed to nearby Ponte Vecchio noted for the various shops built along it. We will have some time for sightseeing and to do some shopping.

WEDNESDAY

On today’s full-day optional excursion, we will be exploring the romantic Tuscan countryside and admire the beautiful scenery of rolling hills and valleys, olive groves and vineyards, castles and Romanesque churches that Chianti country ride has to offer. We will visit Siena, most famous for the Palio, and the annual horse-race held in Piazza del Campo. We admire this almost all pedestrian town, before we proceed to visit the small but picturesque village of Greve, the chief town of Chianti’s Gallo Nero region.

THURSDAY

This morning, we will go on another fullday optional excursion which takes us to Pienza and Montepulciano, the two jewels of the Renaissance. Montepulciano is known for its very impressive Renaissance buildings, its beautiful churches and especially for its “Vino Nobile” (noble wine), one of the most distinguished of Italian wines in the world. There is plenty of sightseeing, and the cathedral is well worth a visit. Pienza is a UNESCO protected town having a world famous cultural and natural patrimony.

FRIDAY

We leave for La Spezia for a full-day optional excursion. We take a ferry (included – weather permitting) to Cinque Terre, one of the most beautiful areas of the Liguria region. Here, five small villages are nestled in the cliffs overlooking the sea and hills where the land’s finest wines are grown. We make a short stop in the picturesque village of Monterosso.

SATURDAY

Today’s optional excursion will take us to Pisa in the morning where we see the “Campo dei Miracoli”, the world-famous leaning Tower, the Cathedral and the Baptistery. We will later proceed to Viareggio city which is located on the Ligurian Sea, with 10km of beach. We will have an enjoyable time in this popular renowned worldwide tourist destination.

SUNDAY

Today’s full-day optional excursion takes us to another part of Tuscany visiting Volterra and San Gimignano. We do a short stop in Volterra. This city conserves a medieval aspect, not only for the 12th century city walls, but also because of the urban layout with narrow streets, palaces, tower houses and churches. We drive to San Gimignano, probably the most famous small town in Italy, which dominates the Val d’Elsa with its breathtaking skyline bristling with towers.

MONDAY

After we check-out of our hotel, we proceed to Orvieto, one of the most striking, memorable, and enjoyable hill towns in central Italy which sits majestically high above the valley floor atop a big chunk of tufo volcanic stone, overlooking cypress-dotted Umbrian plains. We will later proceed to Rome Fiumicino airport for our return flight departing at 9.10pm and arriving in Malta at 10.35pm.
