From country gardens or historic battlefields, to the gastronomic delights of a particular region, our special interest trips are ideal if you have a particular passion.
The insider experience
Though whichever trip you choose, one thing will remain constant: you can expect an experience that’s as much about your area of interest as it is about gaining an insight into the local culture from people who live and work in the area.
For instance, our Flavours of Italy ‘foodie’ trip starts in Rome, where you can enjoy a gelato in the gorgeous Piazzo Navona in the heart of the city. From Rome you’ll visit Florence, Pisa and Bologna and Venice. Local specialists will introduce you to Marco Polo’s house. You’ll dine with a local family whose vineyard overlooks the hills of Chianti. And you’ll enjoy insights into their way of life, with a cooking lesson from a professional chef who’ll walk you through a local market in search of fresh ingredients.
Add in the fact that everything is arranged for you, from superb accommodation to VIP access to some of the main attractions, and you can relax knowing your free time is yours to enjoy unfettered by logistics and planning.
