Bologna and other Italian cities

VISIT TO BOLOGNA  15th – 20th OCTOBER 2019

The Society is planning a comprehensive visit to Bologna with Tailored Travel (who organised our recent trip to Romania). We will fly direct to Bologna with BA and stay in a centrally located hotel for the duration of the tour and use an executive coach to travel around. We will be away for six days and five nights and use a local guide and a Tour Manager to accompany all our day trips.

We will have the opportunity to explore Bologna before travelling to Mantua to visit the magnificent Palazzos on our third day. Next up is a visit to Ravenna which was once the capital of Rome’s Western Empire and one of the great seats of Byzantine art in Europe. Another highlight will be a trip to Padua which is one of Italy’s oldest university cities. Before departing to the airport, we will have a guided tour of Ferrara, one of Italy’s hidden gems with many attractive streets and medieval houses.

The cost will be £1099 with a single supplement of £149 and will include all trips, entrance fees, gratuities and headsets. Dinner will be provided on the first night and breakfast on all mornings so there will be plenty of opportunity to sample local restaurants for dinner in the evenings.
