An archaeological adventure in 2019 for under £800? Oh, go on then...24th May 2019
If you're looking for a cheeky break before the end of the year and don't want to spend too much, you're in luck.
We have five Bare Bones tours (which don't include flights) on offer that depart between August and December, and start from just £599pp. So, all that's left to do is decide which archaeological destination you want to visit and get booking!
£599pp - Bare Bones | Essential Pompeii
Whether you're yet to visit or you've been a handful of times, the haunting site of Pompeii should absolutely be on your bucket list. Ruined after Vesuvius' mighty eruption in AD 79, this ancient town has been frozen in time. On this five-day tour, you'll spend significant time at Pompeii itself to discover the remains along with its history, but there are other sites on the itinerary, too. Elsewhere, wander around the collections at Naples' Archaeological Museum, explore the nearby area of Herculaneum and enjoy some time to soak up the southern Italian atmosphere. Staying at just one hotel throughout and led by our fantastic local guide Daniela, this winter escape will leave you with lasting memories.
£615pp - Bare Bones | Insiders' Berlin
Join our expert guide Nick Jackson on a fascinating discovery of this vibrant city. From our base at the Hotel Augustinenhof, you'll enjoy five full days exploring museums, sites and Berlin's incomparable history. From the Book Burning Memorial at Bebelplatz to the Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse, and from Checkpoint Charlie to the Jewish Museum, no stone will be left unturned. See sites associated with Cold War Berlin, visit the hometown of Martin Luther at historic Wittenberg and more.
£699pp - Bare Bones | Essential Rome
Visiting Rome in the busiest summer months can be an overwhelming experience, so why not join us there in November? Enjoy the highlights of this incredible city in just five days, starting with a guided walk of its Campus Martius.

You'll also feast your eyes upon hidden Roman houses at San Clemente and stay at just one hotel throughout, the Albergo Santa Chiara.
