Your Itinerary

  • Arrive in the hamlet of Boario Terme, meet your travel manager and transfer to your beautiful boutique hotel.

  • Rise and enjoy a leisurely breakfast ahead of a day at leisure, during which you can do as little or as much as you would like.  

    Perhaps settle down on a sunbed by the outdoor swimming pool and take advantage of the bar service. Alternatively, rent an electric or mountain bike and set off on one of several surrounding routes or venture by foot along a trail fringing the lake.  

    You can also meander around the town, with its centuries-old park and thermal springs, or the nearby medieval village of Borgo Di Bienno. Built on a Roman settlement, Borgo Di Bienno is home to a collection of frescoed churches, art galleries and charming courtyards.

  • After breakfast this morning, you can join an optional excursion to Lake Iseo, the fourth largest lake in Lombardy. You’ll be taken on a scenic drive through the countryside before arriving by the banks of the lake and boarding a boat. During this cruise you’ll travel from Sulzano to the three islands of Loreto, San Paolo, and Monte Isola.

  • Fuel up on breakfast and then maybe partake in an optional excursion to the famed Lake Como, backed by the Alps. You’ll board the coach and travel towards the third largest lake in Italy, stopping at some of the pretty towns along the way.  

    Once you’ve arrived at the shores of Lake Como, you’ll have the chance to wander around and soak up the scenery of glamourous villas and colourful villages built into the forested hillside.  

    You’ll then travel to the stately Villa Carlotta, enclosed by an Italian botanical garden, and facing the lake. Composed of three floors, the villa now houses a museum with an impressive collection of artwork and sculptures. Enjoy an included visit to the house and gardens.

  • Enjoy a slow-paced breakfast and another day of leisure. Given that Boario Terme is known for its thermal springs, it makes sense to visit the spa and have a soak in the waters, which are believed to be therapeutic.  

    Today might also present an opportunity to take a stroll along River Oglio, cycle to Lake Iseo or visit the shops in the town.  

    Those travelling on the 7 September departure can visit the Grand Prix at Monza today if you have tickets – transfers there and back can be organised for a supplement if required.

  • Breakfast can be followed by an optional excursion to the medieval town of Bergamo Alta. Your coach will drop you off at the 19th-century funicular station in the lower district, where you’ll travel to its older upper district, Città Alta.  

    Ringed by Venetian walls and lined with cobblestones, this district is awash with an assortment of piazzas and sandstone structures overlooked by the towering Campanone bell tower and the city’s grand cathedral, Duomo di Bergamo.

  • On your final day in Italy, why not conclude with an optional excursion to the southern shores of Lake Garda? Tuck into breakfast and then take to the road in the coach, visiting a couple of lakeside resorts such as Desenzano and Sirmione.  

    When you’ve arrived by the waters of Italy’s largest and most popular lake, you can choose to take a public boat ride to see more from the water (payable locally).

  • Have breakfast and check out of your hotel, leaving the lake behind and transferring to the airport for your flight home.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour and 15 minutes. 

  • We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

  • Guests on half-board arrangements will be served a three-course evening meal, and can expect a first course of traditional pasta or soup, a main meat or fish course accompanied by one or two types of vegetable, and a simple dessert of fruit, cake or Italian ice cream. Breakfasts will usually consist of bread rolls, jam, cereal, ham, cheese, fruit juice, tea and coffee. Menus will vary from hotel to hotel, but choice will be more limited than in a normal restaurant. In some instances, individual guests who have booked with the hotel independently may be offered a different menu from those who are staying at the hotel as part of a package tour.

  • Some regions of Italy have introduced a room tax of 1-3 € per person per night, payable directly by the guest to the hotel on check-out. You will be advised by your Tour Manager in resort if a particular hotel is implementing this charge.

  • Since some attractions visited offer free admission to visitors at certain times of year, we do not include entrance fees. These will be payable locally where applicable. This applies to excursions that are included in the price of your holiday and to excursions booked as optional extras.

  • If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

  • The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

  • Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

  • Visit to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas

  • An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.

  • Rules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.


    It is very important that all passenger names are exactly as per your passport although we do not require middle names.


    Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be:

    • Less than 10 years old on the day you return home – please check the "date of issue"
    • Valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home – please check the "expiry date"

    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.


    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    Border Control

    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
