COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 Travel to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. Then head to the Mercure Hotel Saabrucken Sud, Germany, for our overnight stay making suitable comfort stops along the way. Dinner is included this evening.
DAY 2 After breakfast check out of the overnight hotel and travel to our main stay hotel in Italy. The Dolomites in north-eastern Italy are some of the most beautiful mountains on Earth. We will stop for lunch to be purchased along the way, arriving in time to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 3 After breakfast travel up the Val di Sole and over the pass at Madonna di Campiglio and marvel at the spectacular views of the Brenta peaks. Then we will visit charming and pretty Lake Molveno before returning to the hotel.
DAY 4 Today we have a day at leisure. Located on a high plateau above the Rotaliana plain, Fai della Paganella boasts a rich and turbulent history. During archaeological excavations, for instance, the remains of a Rhaetian settlement from the pre-Roman time as well as remains from the bronze age were found. The town has preserved its original rural charm. Today we have a guided walk of Fai della Paganella and a picnic in the stunning countryside (both of which are included in the price).
DAY 5 After breakfast board the coach for a day excursion today. The beautiful spa city of Merano is a must. Merano is known as the “city of flowers” even though it is a classic Italian Alps ski resort. Enjoy a morning stroll around the town’s vibrant centre. We can also take the chair lift and admire the scenic views before walking through the botanical gardens (price not included, approx. €13 for the gardens). In the afternoon, enjoy free time in Bolzano to wander the historic streets and squares. Old meets new in the heart of the main town of South Tyrol, Bolzano, which is also known as the city of contrasts. The historic district, so to speak the old town, is a popular meeting point for shopping and strolling. The romantic alleys provide a special atmosphere and there are numerous bars, restaurants and cafés. The arcades of Bolzano are considered the actual trade centre of the city and is a lovely shopping road. Later we return to the hotel via Lake Caldaro, with time to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 6 After breakfast visit Riva del Garda on the northern point of Lake Garda. Spend time in the beautiful old piazza surrounded by cafés and bars with lakeside views.
DAY 7 After breakfast check out of the main stay hotel and return to our overnight hotel in Germany. Dinner is included at our overnight hotel this evening.
DAY 8 After breakfast return to Calais for the Eurotunnel crossing, making suitable comfort stops along the way with time to purchase lunch. Arrive back to home area early evening.
