Turin, Athens and Florence for Christmas or New Year?21st August 2019
If the thought of another festive season in front of the TV watching the same old re-runs and eating the same old buffet food is making you dread Christmas, why not take a trip?
We have launched three brand-new festive tours, which will take you to fascinating destinations over both Christmas and New Year.
Where can we take you? Well, we have two exciting Italian itineraries on offer and one that will see you explore a fantastic Greek city – each departure will be led by one of our expert guide lecturers and return flights from London are included.
This elegant Italian city with stunning views over the Alps is known for its magnificent architecture, fascinating museums, aperitif and scrumptious chocolate. During this festive break, you'll explore the Egyptian Museum, wander around a traditional Christmas Market, tour the UNESCO-listed La Venaria Reale, visit the Royal Church of San Lorenzo, and discover the Sabauda Art Gallery.
