Bologna and other Italian cities

VISIT TO BOLOGNA  15th – 20th OCTOBER 2019

The Society had a very successful visit to Bologna with Tailored Travel (who organised our  trip to Romania). Flights were direct to Bologna with BA and we stayed in a centrally located hotel for the duration of the tour and used an executive coach to travel around. We were away for six days and five nights and used a local guide and  Tour Manager to accompany all our day trips.

We  explored Bologna before travelling to Mantua to visit the magnificent Palazzos on our third day. Then 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 was a trip to Padua which is one of Italy’s oldest university cities. Finally there was  a guided tour of Ferrara, one of Italy’s hidden gems with many attractive streets and medieval houses.

The cost was £1099 with a single supplement of £149 and  including all trips, entrance fees, gratuities and headsets. Dinner was provided on the first night and breakfast on all mornings
