Welcome Welcome back to Typically Italian. The team and I are proud to introduce our 2012 brochure, which is our biggest brochure yet. This year we have two new additions – our Bella Villa section and a new region – Puglia. Being a family-run company we like to use family-run hotels and villas which offer that extra personal touch and specialist knowledge. From fresh, home-made cake for breakfast to home-made pasta for your evening meals, at Typically Italian we try and give you the real experience of the Italian way of life and culture. That’s why we visit every hotel or villa and speak to the managers or owners so we get to know them as well as their property. At Typically Italian holidays we try and give you as much flexibility as possible so you can travel when you like, for as long as you like and from your local airport on scheduled flights or low cost airlines - the choice is yours. If you’re not sure and need some advice we recommend you go into your local Travel Agent and tell them what you need and between us we will find you a perfect holiday that suits both your needs and budget. At the same time you can rest assured that all our holidays come with 100 per cent financial protection through Abta and Atol. We look forward to you booking your trip with us and enjoying a Typically Italian Holiday. Saluti

Italy is not just our job... Daniele Broccoli Director

Local representatives and agents To get the best out of your holiday we have local agents in Italy who can give any necessary help and guidance and can always be contacted. You will not be visited in your accommodation. Please remember that wherever you are, the hotels’ managers, owners and receptionists are often keen to help you with local information. If any problems occur, you can contact our local agent who will help you or ring our 24 hour emergency number.

...it’s our way of life! 100% financial protection

ABTA No.W6934

Our Prices As all our holidays are tailormade, we have adopted a flexible pricing policy based on individual airline fares which now, as a result of changing airline industry, fluctuate on a regular basis. We have shown a range of indicative prices for our feated accommodation and will quote the accurate price on application. This price will reflect the latest prices and any offers from hotels.


Tailor made holidays For holidays or hotels not featured in this brochure or of a longer duration and more complex itinerary please ask us for a quotation. We can also arrange all types of packages and multi-centre: flights, trains, car hire, private transfers or accommodation only.

Montecatini Terme

San Gimignano

The town of Montecatini Terme is world-famous for its spas, springs and thermal baths. The baths and spas date back to the 14th century and nowadays there are nine fully-functioning ‘terme’ spread around the town. Elegant, peaceful and relaxing, they make for perfect resting places. Enjoy a glass of enriched water, or take the plunge for the full treatment ... you will be in illustrious company. Previous visitors include Rossini, Verdi, Orson Welles, Clark Gable and assorted European royalty. Verdi was particularly taken, searching for eternal youth each year for 25 years. The town also has many art galleries and antique shops and is famous as the Tuscan capital of Liberty Style.

San Gimignano is a small, walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometers outside the town. The town is also known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area. It served as an important relay point for pilgrims travelling to or from Rome on the Via Francigena. The patrician families who controlled the town built around 72 tower-houses (some as high as 50m) as symbols of their wealth and power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance. The town also has several masterpieces of 14th and 15th Century Italian art.

Fiesole

Pescia

Fiesole is a pretty town in the scenic hills above Florence with Etruscan roots, Roman ruins and spectacular views of Florence. During summer the Roman Amphitheatre holds outdoor theatre and music performances as part of Estate Fiesolana. Summer concerts are also held in the Castel di Poggio. Fiesole holds an antique fair on the second Sunday of every month. For centuries Fiesole has been the favoured retreat of Florentines during the hot summer months and it still provides cool summer air and magnificent views. The main sights are the Roman theatre and baths, as well as the Duomo of Fiesole, and there are many splendid villas in the area. Some are hotels and some are open to visitors. The most famous and the prototype Tuscan villa is the Medici at Fiesole.

The town of Pescia takes its name after the river which divides it in two parts and which makes it cool and pleasant for visits, especially during the spring and summer. The Medici family was very important for this city. Leone X – Medici’s Pope erected its first parish in 1519 and then the same family improved its economy. It has a typical row of houses which start from the top of the hill and end at Villa Garzoni: this villa and its baroque garden “All’Italiana” was designed and built during the 17th century and was enriched in the following century with statues and magnificent fountains. Today one of the major centres of the Valdinievole, Pescia consolidated its political role at the end of the 12th century in the Carolingian Age when, after gaining freedom from the imperial power, it became a free city-state (or “Commune”) together with the neighbouring town of Lucca.

Lucca Imagine a beautiful little Tuscan town protected by massively thick 16th Century walls, featuring some of Italy’s finest medieval and Renaissance architecture, superb dining, antique markets, classical and rock music festivals and easy access to stunning nearby villas in the surrounding hills. Add to that endless beaches less than half an hour away and it’s no wonder Lucca is one of Tuscany’s best-kept secrets. A wealthy and colourful town, it is sufficiently off the beaten track to have kept its civility and reserve. Lucca is a city of merchants who know how to woo the visitor and the shopper, but the pace of life varies between slow and slower.

Chianti The Chianti area in Tuscany is one of the most beautiful in the whole region, as well as the best known, and is appreciated by visitors from across the world. The borders of the Chianti area are not clearly defined, but in general it extends over the provinces of Florence and Siena, covering all of the area between the two cities and extending to the east toward Valdarno and to the west to Val d’Elsa. Chianti offers a unique landscape, with green, gentle hills covered with wide fields of vineyards and olive groves, small stone villages, characteristic parishes and countryside homes in stone.

Tuscany Siena

Riparbella

Is it the best preserved medieval town in Italy? You decide! Siena is the perfect counterpart to Florence. Largely enclosed by ancient walls and with a Gothic cathedral which dates from the 12th Century, this is a city which invites you to explore each square and narrow street. Start at the Piazza del Campo, where the spectacular Palio horse race is held on July 2 and August 16. Age-old rivalries are rekindled as bareback jockeys from Siena’s 17 districts contest the race, and there are hundreds of bars and restaurants. Try ribollita, a vegetable soup or a wild boar stew. Best-known of Siena’s desserts is panforte, a calorific bomb usually made from nougat. Florence is easily reached by train, and the Chianti countryside is waiting to be discovered if you hire a car.

Riparbella sits in a beautiful position on the southern slopes of the Poggio di Nocola. Standing on a hill, like every town of ancient origin, Riparbella is distinguished by a view of rare beauty. A mixed landscape of woods, olive groves, vineyards and countryside reflect the agricultural origins of the town. Opposite is an open view to the sea with a peek of Elba and Capraia on the horizon. Don’t miss the historical town centre that rises around the medieval castle and dates back to around 1000AD. The Town Hall and the church of St. John the Baptist are interesting to visit. Riparbella’s gastronomic offerings include a series of typical Tuscan dishes based on game, good wine and typical products coming from the breeding and cultivation of local farms.

Cortona Cortona is located in the central region of Tuscany, in the Province of Arezzo. The town is not far from the border with Umbria, and its magnificent views extend over the green plains and hills of Tuscany and Umbria, extending beyond the lovely Lake Trasimeno. The town is attractive and welcoming, with several inviting bars and restaurants off the central piazzas, and a highly-recommended place to stay. Cortona is surrounded by defensive walls, the foundations of which date back to the Etruscan period. Tightly-clustered medieval houses pack the slopes, leading upwards to an open green area where the hill is crowned by a Medici fortress (Fortezza Medicea). The narrow lanes and alleys winding up and down the slopes within Cortona can be confusing so it’s a good idea to arm yourself with a street plan before exploring. Just below the fortress is a large church; the Santuario di Santa Margherita (Sanctuary of St Margaret).

Val d’Orcia The Val d’Orcia, or Valdorcia, is a region of Tuscany which extends from the hills south of Siena to Monte Amiata It offers a landscape of never-ending hills, interspersed with torrents, ravines, rugged outcrops and river banks which are broken up by the gullies and picturesque towns and villages such as Pienza, Radicofani and Montalcino. Thanks to its incredible historic and cultural value, the Orcia Valley has been recognised by UNESCO, who designated it a World Heritage Site.

Pomaia Pomaia itself, is a small medieval town amidst the green hills of Pisa and belongs to one of the most beautiful Tuscan countrysides. The old core consists of small houses and a church square. Because of the Tibetan-Buddhist monastery of Lama Tsongkhapa this idyllic spot is famous throughout the world. The breathtaking monastery is like a little Tibet in the middle of Tuscany, where the Dalai Lama is frequently a guest.

Pescia

Pescia 2km

Near Pescia, at the foot of the historic village San Lorenzo, dedicated to the Patron Saint born next to the nearby small church of the 16th Century, and near a well known water spring, two important paper mills called San Lorenzo and Cerreto were founded. The mills were widely known, in the beginning, for the production of high quality, hand-made paper, later of white and grey, air-dried paper. Both paper mills ceased their activity in 1960 and 1975 respectively. Since then all machinery were kept as witness of this past activity. Nowadays, after a long, loving refurbishment, the property, with two historical buildings, has been brought to new life. A lovely 20 room and 10 suite hotel now exists, surrounded by green hills crossed by a river. All furniture was chosen with the aim of creating a warm and traditional atmosphere. In the typical restaurant, where the old mill machines remain, guests can taste local specialities. The reception and sitting rooms, for reading and entertaining, contribute to make this place ideal for quiet relaxing holidays.

Umbria Perugia

Assisi

As the capital of landlocked Umbria, Perugia a perfectly preserved, historic town dominating the Tiber Valley from high on a rough hill inhabited ever since prehistoric times. Today Perugia is a modern and cosmopolitan city proud of its historic traditions and beautiful buildings. You will find layer upon layer of history still in use alongside our hectic modern world. Renaissance palaces have been turned into shops and modern escalators put into mediaeval remains. Despite a rich heritage and a cosmopolitan atmosphere, in summer you can visit without tourist hordes. The Arts are very important within the city. The famous painter Pietro Vannucci, was a native of Perugia. He decorated the local Sala del Cambio with a beautiful series of frescoes. Today Perugia hosts a 10 day jazz festival in July and in October the whole town goes chocolate crazy during the nine-day event, Eurochocolate.

The town is great for wandering and exploring. Its narrow and steep lanes are picturesque and full of hidden restaurants, faded frescoes and stunning views. After the earthquake it suffered in 1997, Assisi has been carefully rebuilt and restored. For hundreds of years Assisi has been dominated by the unpretentious figure of St. Francis, whose followers filled the little town with churches, monasteries and shrines. Assisi’s churches are numerous as are the Roman excavations, which can be seen in the town’s little museum. As well as archaeological finds the museum gives access to a tunnel running under the modern piazza. Here you walk on the original surface of the Roman Forum. For the best views over the town visit the Rocca Maggiore, a large fortress towering above Assisi and providing a spectacular view over the surrounding hills and valleys.

Spoleto One of the most beautiful Italian mediaeval towns, dating back to the 3rd century BC. Developed on the original Roman road connecting Rome with Rimini, the many different regimes of rule have created the city’s diverse architecture producing the perfect combination of art, culture and history. The Duomo, also known as the church of Saint Peter, has one of the most elegant façades in Umbria from the 5th century. Spoleto is known for its love of the arts. Don’t forget the famous Spoleto festival, a celebration of dance, theatre, opera, music and the visual arts all showcased at the Festival of Two Worlds held every July and August.

At the centre of the mediaeval village, still today encircled by the walls of the 13th century, the narrowest streets in Italy can be found. The churches and palazzi were built of red brick within a fairly short span of time, from the late Middle Ages through the Renaissance. The church Duomo dedicated to the Saints Gervasio and Protasio rises high above the ancient roofs accompanied by the gothic Romanesque bell tower. Inside the church, works can be found by two great painters from Città della Pieve and other works of the Renaissance.

Foligno

Corciano is perched on its hill about 12km west of Perugia. It is one of the beauty spots of Umbria, a peaceful and beautiful walled medieval town. It is located in a landscape rich in olive groves and vineyards. It is a characteristic Italian walled town preserving several art works and historical evidences. According to an ancient legend, Corciano owes it name and origins to Coragino, mythical friend of Ulysses. Corciano is a medieval centre from which splendid panoramas can be enjoyed.

Foligno is an ancient town in the Provence of Perugia in east central Umbria. The town rose up on the banks of the Topino River during Roman times.Places of interest include the Cathedral and the Town Hall, erected between 1262 and 1265, the Pretorio Palace, the Orfini Palace and the Trinci Palace, which preserves traces of the original beautiful decorations and some rooms, with valuable frescoes, look down on the square. More attentive tourists should not leave Foligno without having visited the Romanic church of St. Mary Infraportas and the Abbey of Sassovivo, situated only 6kms from the city centre. The former is distinguished by its beautiful bell tower and its 11th century portico. You’ll remember the latter because of its Romanic cloister with its 128 slender columns and its mystical atmosphere, typical of Benedictine places of worship.

Bettona

Citta di Castello

The town dates back to ancient Etruscan origins, believed to have been founded around the 7th and 8th centuries B.C. Today this small town still retains a complete circuit of mediaeval walls including substantial portions of the original Etruscan walls and is noted for its walled gardens. This town makes a great base for exploring the countryside but in the town you should take time to visit the church of St. Mary Maggiore, the small art collection in the Palace of the Podestà and the excellent museum of mostly mediaeval and Renaissance paintings. CANALICCHIO: Canalicchio is a small village located near Bettona.

For the most part still surrounded by the original walls dating back to the 16th century, the town of Cittá di Castello spreads out along the Tiber valley, on the spot where the Romans founded the township of Tifernum Tiberinum. Buildings such as the Palace of the Podestà, with its baroque facade dating back to 1686, and the Town Hall, built in the Gothic style with elegant portal and windows, testify to the ancient history of this Umbrian town. Traces of Gothic art are still to be found on the left-hand side of the Cathedral, which, having been constructed during the 11th century on the site of a Roman temple, was radically modified in the middle of the 14th century.

Emilia-Romagna Portico di Romagna

Maranello

The small medieval town of Portico di Romagna was founded in ancient times and is located on the border between Romagna and Tuscany. The centre of the village is typical, with the ruins of the old castle, narrow, winding streets, fortified walls and a river which runs through with natural pools and a waterfall. Horse riding, cycling or hiking in the surrounding hills are some of the more popular pastimes. It is also within easy reach of National Parks or the stunning Adriatic beach resorts. The village still retains its medieval appearance and is divided into three parts: the upper part with the castle and the parish church; the middle part with the aristocratic houses from the 13th and 14th Centuries inhabited by Romagna and Tuscan nobles who escaped here from political fights; and the lower part with the houses of craftsmen with their workshops.

Maranello is a town and commune in the region of Emilia Romagna. It is best known as the home of Ferrari. and the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team. Maranello was also home to coach building firm Carrozzeria Scaglietti, now owned by Ferrari. The Ferrari 550 Maranello and Ferrari 575 Maranello are named after the town. Near Maranello is the town of Fiorano Modenese where the Fiorano Circuit is located, a private track owned by Ferrari for its car testing. Maranello also boast of fine restaurants and is a good base to explore the region.

Cesena Cesena, which is only about 10 miles from the Adriatic Sea and at the foot of the Apennines, was also a Roman settlement and dates back about 100 years before the founding of Forli. Its castle dates from 1380 and its Gothic cathedral from about 1500, and it also has several monasteries including one which is now a gallery. Some of the ancient walls remain, and the Church and Monastery of Osservanza dates from 1460 is well worth a visit. The Capuchin Monastery is still a place of peace and contemplation standing above the city. Like most cities in Italy, Cesena enjoys its festivals. The festival of St John in June each year honours its patron saint, and events devoted to agriculture, gastronomy, music and sport also give the city plenty of character.

Piacenza The old town of Piacenza, with its 12th-century cathedral (Duomo di Piacenza in Italian) harmoniously blends pretty pink marble, mellow sandstone and red brick. It’s one of the best examples of a Romanesque cathedral in northern Italy. The interior has a nave and two aisles, with 25 soaring pillars, and beautiful frescoes, including some by Guercino in the dome with its old street and shops, as well as traditional restaurants.

Faenza Faenza, situated on the main road from Forli towards Bologna, is a beautiful mediaeval town which is famous throughout Italy for its ceramics. The tradition of decorative ceramics goes back more than 600 years, with a large collection in the International Ceramics Museum not only from Italy but from other exotic parts of the world. Ceramics also adorn many of Faenza’s historic buildings, and wandering around the mediaeval piazzas is a delight as you take in the atmosphere.

Dozza The oldest documented report of the name Dozza dates from 1126. The town is set on the hillside between Bologna and Imola with vineyards covering the landscape. Water was once scarce here, and the emphasis on its presence is seen also in the names of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Piscina and the very old parish church of San Lorenzo in Piscirano. In the historic centre, murals by important artists lend colour and atmosphere. Take a walk down the narrow cobblestone streets with the fragrance of wine coming from cellars and delicious cooking smells from the numerous doorways until you reach the Rocca (fortress) which stands at the meeting point of the two roads that cross the village.

Emilia-Romagna Parma Parma is an elegant and welcoming city with a centre rich with art, parks and treasures from different ages. It offers a feast of art, architecture, culture, haute couture, gastronomy and has been voted the “City with the highest standard of living”. It is surrounded by green hills, themselves dotted with castles, and the river Parma runs across the city. Bars, boutiques, shopping centres, restaurants and hotels cater for its growing number of tourists. The Piazza Garibaldi lies at the heart of Parma, A statue of Garibaldi, the Governor’s Palace and the Town Hall, both dating back to 1673, are located in this square. The Duomo, a bell tower and the baptistery nestle close to each other, each a superb example of the architecture of its kind, while The Battistero or Baptistry, made of pink marble, is an octagonal building and a fine example of Romanesque architecture. Parma is also known as the food capital of Italy, having given to the world two sublime items of cuisine – Parmesan Cheese and Prosciutto Ham.

Ravenna Ravenna is truly a city that sums up all things Italian – a beautiful, historic and cultural centre which at the same time manages to have lots of fun. Situated in the north of Romagna and linked to the nearby Adriatic Sea by a canal, it was once capital of the Western Roman Empire and an important centre of early Christianity. Roman, Gothic and Byzantine rulers have all left their mark, and from the Piazza del Popolo you can set out to discover a manageable and very likeable city where you won’t be overcome by tourist hordes. Among the many museums is San Vitale, a 6th Century Byzantine basilica with fine mosaics. Also look out for Spirito Santo church with its 16th Century portico, and the Venetian Brancaleone Castle, dating from 1457. Above all don’t miss Dante’s Tomb, resting place of one of Italy’s greatest poets who wrote The Divine Comedy. Ravenna has some wonderful places to eat, and special events which include the Festival of Music in June/July. Being close to the sea (Marina di Ravenna and Punta Marina being the nearest resorts), it’s a good choice for families, and Ravenna also boasts a major entertainment park, Mirabilandia, open in summer with 44 attractions to choose from. It’s a complete day out – or more – for all the family.

Forli Located on the Po river valley, only an hour’s drive from Bologna and the seaside resorts of the Adriatic, Forli is easily reached by road or rail. Founded by the Romans in the second century B.C, the town is rich in culture and the historic centre preserves important traces of its past, including the cathedral, the convent of San Domenico, which is now a museum, and Piazza della Vittoria, characterised by 1920s architecture. Forli is a University city, so there is always plenty going on, from performing arts to the simpler joys of getting together with friends.

Sestri Levante Sestri Levante is a small and rustic fishing village that is slowly developing into a favourite tourist destination in Italy. Approximately halfway between Genoa and La Spezia, the original part of the town is actually on a peninsula, with the Bay of Silence on one side and Bay of Fables on the other. The Bay of Fables, with a port, is the liveliest side of town, with its seafront street, ice cream shops and hotels. On the other hand, in the Bay of Silence, the atmosphere is cosy and romantic and still tied to the customs of fishing that has always represented an important economical resource. Sestri Levante has its origins as an ancient maritime and merchant centre. Originally a small island with a promontory, it was later connected to the mainland. Sestri Levante is also mentioned by Dante (as “Siestri”) in Canto 19 of “The Divine Comedy”.

Rapallo

Portovenere is a beautiful port-town dating back from 1160 AD, as the medieval walls and archway can still attest; and the town has also become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Rapallo is the largest Italian Riviera seaside resort town. The ancient centre of Rapallo lies between the port and the train station; the modern part, rich in prestigious hotels was formed later and stretches in an arch around the coastline and along the slopes of the green surrounding hills. Rapallo is a very welcoming town, rich in excellent hotels, there’s a picturesque castle in the sea, a small harbour and seaside promenade, pedestrian shopping streets in the historical centre, and good seafood restaurants. Don’t miss the funicular ride up the hill to Montallegro..

Like so much of Italy, Liguria is a land of contrasts, home to belle époque seaside resort towns in the style of Cannes and Monaco; dozens and dozens of sandy strands, rocky coves and pebbly beaches; the country’s largest commercial port and largest naval port; some of its most secluded stretches of coast, where lush forests of lemon trees, herbs, flowers, almonds and pines create sweet-smelling breezes; and terraced hillsides that produce an olive oil considered more delicate than those grown in Tuscany.

Puglia Fasano The town of Fasano is situated in an extended area with olive trees and its territory extends from the hills to the sea with rich Mediterranean vegetation. Among some of the places of interest in the surrounding area are the Selva di Fasano, today a garden with villas, original trulli houses and the zoo safari Fasanolandia, the first of its kind in Europe. Coming down from the hills, the town of Fasano occupies a dominant position in the valley which then leads down to the sea. The coast is characterised by a peaceful atmosphere that prevails despite growing tourism.

Lecce Lecce is to the Baroque as Florence is to the Renaissance. It is famous for its wealth and fine examples of Baroque architecture. Here and there are magnificent churches and palaces, and the local cuisine show traits of the Arab, Spanish and Greek dishes. The local dialect has many similarities with ancient Greek. The Baroque Holy Cross church, situated in the centre of the old town is definitely worth a visit, as is the Roman Amphitheatre, built in the 2nd Century AD and situated nearby Sant’ Oronzo Square.

Gallipoli Gallipoli, from the Greek Kallipolis meaning beautiful city, is a fishing village on the coast in southern Italy’s Puglia region. It has a good old town and is linked to the mainland by a 16th century bridge. The old town is picturesque and a nice place to stroll through with its maze of alleys. The 17th century Baroque Sant’ Agata Cathedral is in the centre of the town and several interesting churches are along the perimeter of the old town facing the sea. The walls and bastions surrounding it are believed to have been built in the 15th century to fend off attacks, especially from pirates. The walls were altered in the 19th century permitting beautiful views of the sea, port, and harbours. The pretty port is still used by fishing boats and restaurants serve fresh seafood. Sea urchins are a specialty of Gallipoli. A sandy beach, Spiaggia della Purita, lies on one side of the old town, outside the walls where Private boats can dock in the recently-built tourist harbour.

Ispica Pachino Portopalo

The Amalfi Coast is a beautiful and renowned stretch of mountainous coastline south of Naples, in Campania. The southern end of the Bay of Naples stretches out in a steep and rocky peninsula that reaches towards the Isle of Capri. Sorrento, another major tourist destination, looks back towards Naples from the north coast of the peninsula. The southern side of the peninsula is dotted with picturesque villages and towns clinging giddily to the cliffs. For decades these fishing villages, stacked precariously above the sea, have been one of Italy’s major tourist attractions. Nowadays the area’s principal industry is tourism, well-accustomed to catering for affluent foreign tourists, the area offers a generous selection of restaurants, bars, boutiques, boat trips… just about anything self-indulgent you can spend money on. The views are undeniably breathtaking and away from the main road and the tourist hot-spots you can still discover the peace that charmed earlier visitors.


Sorrento

Naples

Sorrento is situated on a plain above the sea, overlooking the Bay of Naples. The view from Sorrento stretches back to the north, encompassing Vesuvius, the city of Naples and the island of Ischia. It has a pretty old town, a harbour with ferry departures to Capri, Amalfi and Naples, and is within easy reach of the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Herculaneum and the city of Naples. There is some good walking in the peninsula and plenty of restaurants and bars. The tourist focal point is Piazza Tasso, where tables and chairs crowd the central square, which is built over a gorge. Please note that there aren’t many actual beaches in Sorrento; sea access is generally via wooden or stone bathing platforms at the foot of the cliffs.

Naples is the largest city in South Italy and one of the most beautiful, particularly around the Bay of Naples. To one side is Mount Vesuvius, and near to the bay are the pretty islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, which all lend themselves to day trips. Naples city centre is compact and full of grand palaces, impressive churches, monasteries, convents, castles and other splendid buildings. The Napoli Sotterranea is a fascinating series of underground tunnels, passageways, stairs, rooms and halls, right in the heart of Naples Naples stretches along the waterfront and throughout the city there are many squares, parks and gardens. The shopping centre in central Naples has a wide variety of retail outlets trading in the four glass-roofed arcades. The lively markets are also a great place to find a bargain, full of atmosphere and Italian market banter. There are countless restaurants, cafés and bars in Naples, and many afford great views of the city and bayfront.

Sant’Agnello A couple of kilometres east of Sorrento, on Campania’s Sorrentine peninsula, the little town of Sant’Agnello occupies a delightful position. With the Mediterranean on two coasts you’re never far from the beach, while Sant’Agnello itself is a pleasantly quiet little place - the hotels nestling amid greenery between the hills and the sea. With mighty Mount Vesuvius brooding on the horizon, you have the blue waters of the Bay of Naples to the north. Sant’Agnello is a quieter alternative to staying in the centre of Sorrento to which it is connected by regular buses along Corso Italia from Piazza Tasso. It also has its own train station (just off Piazza Matteotti) linking it with Sorrento and via Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples. There are restaurants and bars around Piazza Sant’Agnello and near the coast, with great views. There is the Chiesa (church) Frati Cappuccin and La Tenuta della Cocumella.

Maiori This typically Italian resort has a maze of narrow streets, whitewashed houses, ancient walls that once guarded the town from the Romans and the beautiful domed Santa Maria church which offers a chance to view the world-famous carving of the Madonna and Child. Wander a little further and discover the romantic 10th century monastery perched above the town and admire its age-old frescoes and chapel. During the daytime, the main activities revolve around the beach, swimming and watersports. The long sandy shore gently shelves into the calm waters of the Bay of Salerno bordered by a tree lined promenade with a large fountain feature and crammed full of ice cream bars, pizzerias and bars. In the evenings, there are many authentic trattorias to enjoy traditional Italian cooking, with menus offering fresh seafood and steaks to pizza and pasta. If you have a sweet tooth, you must try Maiori’s delicious traditional chocolate cake, made with almonds, pine nuts and, believe it or not, aubergines!

Miles and miles of vineyards rivaling any in Tuscany or Piedmont, endless olive groves sprouting from emerald-green carpets of grass, veritable forests of shiny citrus and fruit trees, rugged silver mountains, all against a backdrop of the deep blue sea. Sicily has a massive amount of world-class art, ranging from Greek to Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, French and Spanish, and some of it enjoys the most astonishing setting, abandoned on a hillside or nestled into a deserted cove. There is something very ancient about Sicily, more than in Rome or Ravenna or Pompeii, and the thing we like the most about it is its unpretentiousness, the matter of fact, day-to-day atmosphere that turns all this history into a landscape as natural as a prickly pear blooming alongside a country road.

Melito di P


Emilia-Romagna Taormina The picturesque historic centre of Taormina is perched on the cliff top complete with castle, cathedral and cluster of chic shops and piazzas full of cafes. From Mazzaro Beach the town with its pedestrianised streets can be reached effortlessly by cable car. This attractive and permanently fashionable little town has locals and visitors alike showing off their finery as the cafes and bars wake up at night. During the day you can wonder at the view of the coast and Mount Etna. If you decide to visit in the less crowded off season months of March, April and May, you will enjoy the sunshine (usually) and also enjoy the beauty of the spring flowers and take advantage of the uncrowded streets and best tables in restaurants.

Giardini Naxos The thriving town of Giardini Naxos with its old fishing harbour is a popular holiday resort on the site of the ancient Greek colony of Naxos. The whole area is of great historical interest, with many archaeological sites and just 8km from Taormina. Those who venture to the top of the hill will enjoy stunning views. The long town beach gently slopes down towards the sea with parasols and sunbeds and a wide range of watersports available for hire, while the nightlife revolves around the many bars, nightclubs and excellent restaurants serving fresh fish brought in on the many local boats daily.

On the only main street in the town of Porto Empedocle, you will find a few interesting shops, some bars and restaurants. Outside the city, you can visit the magnificent Valley of the Temples which is one of the most impressive classical sites in Italy.

Mazara del Vallo Mazara del Vallo lies mainly on the left bank at the mouth of the Mazaro river, administratively part of the province of Trapani. It is an agricultural and fishing centre and its port gives shelter to the largest fishing fleet in Italy. Mazara was founded by the Phoenicians in the 9th century BC, with the name of Mazar (the Rock). Today Mazara is widely considered to be one of the most important fishing centres of Italy; tussles about fishing rights, especially with the North-African countries, figure large in the town’s recent history.

Siracusa This pleasant town lies between two natural harbours on the eastern shore, with more than enough to occupy the busiest tourist for at least a couple of days and a great base for exploring the south-eastern corner of Sicily. The historic old town centre of the city, Ortigia has been appointed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the outdoor market here is one of the most amazing places to visit with fresh fish, vegetables and fruits. The maze of narrow mediaeval streets leads you to the beautiful Piazza del Duomo home of the ancient baroque Duomo. Standing tall on the tip of the Ortigia Island is the impressive Castello Maniace which once protected the harbour and enjoys the most amazing views out to sea.

Palermo After decades of Mafia domination, Palermo’s cosmopolitan character is now emerging, creating an exciting European capital city. Situated on the North coast known for the best beaches, a lazy day in the sun may tempt you away from the elegant shopping streets lined with exclusive boutiques. The ancient and enchanting old city is divided by winding alleys lined with vibrant outdoor markets with an incredible mix of cultures, architectural styles and culinary flavours.

Porto Empedocle Porto Empedocle is an important fishing and trade port in South-western Sicily, situated on a peculiar limestone hill. In its historic town centre, you will find numerous narrow and winding streets that offer many sites worth exploring. Among the most popular points of interest is the famous Cathedral which stands beautifully on the foundation of the temple of Jupiter dating back since the 6th century B.C.

Lake Como & Lake Maggiore Consiglio di Rumo

Mennagio

Consiglio di Rumo is a pretty village and is ideal as a starting point for walks and excursions to the nearby hills and the scenery, as with the whole area of Lake Como, is spectacular. There are many places of interest and the churches of both St. Giovanni Battista and St. Gregorio are worth visiting. The village itself is peaceful and has many shops, bars and restaurants and a short distance away is Gravedona, where you will find numerous activities on offer, including windsurfing, sailing, boat hire, golf etc, or if that sounds too energetic you can just relax on the beach!

On the sunny western shore of the lake this lively town feels protected by the hills behind. The scenic promenade takes you past the small harbour full of pleasure boats. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the riverside lido with the opportunities to windsurf. This little town’s colourful piazza is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants, but the beautiful view across to Bellagio will have you soon hopping onto the ferry to explore further.

The enchanting village centre is a maze of narrow cobbled lanes and stepped streets winding up the hills behind. The stylish boutiques and art galleries sit comfortably next to the craft shops selling local silk and olive wood carvings. In the evenings the cafe filled piazzas come alive and have live music in high season. The great ferry service means you are well connected to explore the lake and villages on the western shore.

Cadenabbia With a population of only 700, Cadenabbia and its nearby Griante is seen as an exclusive area with opulent villas, lavish gardens and stunning lake views to attract the tourists. It is no stranger to wealthy and famous visitors and even royalty has dashed through the streets of Cadenabbia, with guests such as Queen Victoria, Nicholas II of Russia and Pope Pio XI. Today visitors can walk among these beautiful gems or view them from a distance walking around the lakeside promenade or from a boat. Despite its small size you can still partake in sightseeing, stop for gelatos and coffees, shop and people watch. You could also visit the first Anglican church in Italy (Church of the Ascension), built in the 1800s and located close to the ferry that goes to Bellagio.

Como Como sits at the southern end of the western branch of Lake Como and is the most important town on the lake, with a long history, lively streets and a busy waterfront. It has excellent transport connections and is just half an hour from Milan by train and only a few miles from Italy’s border with Switzerland. Ferries and buses run up and down the lake’s shores, and little seaplanes take off from the waters close to town. Como’s charms include the typical Italian network of pavement cafes, little squares and picturesque lanes, some bustling with shops while others are more peaceful. It is much livelier than the tourist-dominated villages around Lake Como and has been a successful town since Roman times.The most important sight is the cathedral, the Duomo, and alongside it is the Broletto, Como’s 13th century striped-marble town hall. Como was an important town in the silk trade, and around the lake you’ll still find shops selling high-quality Como silks. There is a museum dedicated to silk, the Museo della Seta, located just outside the centre of town.

The apartment has central heating and a strictly No Smoking/No pets policy.

The apartment is on the side of the mountain which, in our opinion makes it unsuitable for those with mobility issues without transport.

Bologna Boasting one of the country’s great medieval cityscapes – an eye-catching ensemble of redbrick palazzi, Renaissance towers and 40km of arcaded porticoes – Bologna is a wonderful alternative to the north’s more famous cities. Italy’s culinary capital, it’s an attractive, animated place; and a large student population (Bologna boasts the oldest university in Europe) ensure a vitality that’s so often missing in many of Romagna’s smaller towns. The Via Indipendenza is the heart of Bologna, with some restaurants decorated by the beautiful frescoes of the Carracci brothers. In the evening the city comes alive in the streets around the grand Piazza Maggiore, full of bars, pastry shops, ice cream parlours and restaurants. Night life thrives with theatre, opera and nightclubs and many of the shops open late too. It’s a wonder the students find time to study!

P isa Once a maritime power to rival Genoa and Venice, Pisa now draws its fame from an architectural project gone terribly wrong: its iconic Leaning Tower. But the worldfamous tower is only one of a trio of Romanesque splendours on the green carpet of the Piazza dei Miracoli – a serious rival to Venice’s Piazza San Marco for the title of Italy’s most memorable square. Pisa has a centuries-old tradition as a university town and swarms with students. Possibly of Greek origin, Pisa became an important naval base under Rome and remained a significant port for many centuries. The city’s so-called golden days began late in the 9th century, when it became an independent maritime republic and a rival of Genoa and Venice. The good times rolled on into the 12th and 13th centuries, by which time Pisa controlled Corsica, Sardinia and most of the mainland coast as far south as Civitavecchia. Most of the city’s finest buildings date from this period, when the distinctive Pisan-Romanesque architectural style flourished.

Milan was the Western Roman Empire’s capital for a short but significant 109 years. But for most northern Italians, Milan is the country’s heart. Milan is the engine room of the country’s economy and home of its stock exchange, yet it isn’t driven by tourism. Treasures that survived WWII’s extensive damage include its elaborate cathedral, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, La Scala opera house and Castello Sforzesco. What really sets Milan apart, though, is its creative streak. You won’t be dashing from street to street ticking sights off a must-see list, as in Florence, but cultural gems are hardly few and far between. The restored Duomo is a majestic Gothic folly that took half a millennium to complete. But the city’s charms can also be understated: there are pleasures in its dusty churches, on the narrow streets of the Brera district, and in courtyards glimpsed through wrought-iron gates. Armani, Versace, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Pucci, Gucci and many more took off on Milan’s runways. Fashionistas make a pilgrimage here to shop at the designers’ flagship stores in the Quadrilatero d’Oro (Golden Quad). Boutiques stocking emerging labels and chic concept shops also line the city’s streets, while discount outlets selling samples, seconds and last season’s cast-offs are a bargain-hunter’s Holy Grail. The city also harbours some lesser-known attractions such as the Navigli’s canal-side cafés and old-fashioned gelaterie (ice-cream shops) and the funky design district of Isola.

Located in the Veneto region in Northern Italy, Verona is only half an hour’s drive from Lake Garda, is also surrounded, to the north and east, by the hilly landscapes of the famous Valpolicella and Soave wine districts.

The city’s old castle, Castelvecchio, is a famous attraction in its own right too, built by the powerful della Scala family in the Middle Ages and restored in the 20th century by worldfamous architect Carlo Scarpa.

Verona is a lively city with the Old Town, framed by the River Adige to the north, east and west, as the picturesque centre for cultural activities, tourism, shopping and nightlife. You will find most of the best restaurants here too. Known by most for its Roman amphitheatre, the Arena, one of Italy’s largest and the home of its annual summer opera festival, Verona also boasts one of Italy’s finest Romanesque churches as well as one of the country’s most beautiful Renaissance gardens.

Arguably, however, the reason behind Verona’s thriving tourist industry has less to do with architecture or history than with literature - William Shakespeare’s romantic and tragic play about the young lovers Romeo and Juliet is set in the city, and such is the power and resonance of this story that every year a stream of tourists flocks to Verona to visit the famous courtyard and balcony at Casa Giulietta (Juliet’s House) on Via Cappello in the Old Town.

Florence

Florence Florence, capital of the region of Tuscany, has a population of around half a million inhabitants. It is a city which bustles with industry and craft, commerce and culture, art and science. The Chianti area, between Florence and Siena, has some of the most beautiful countrysides in Italy and is famous for it’s fantastic wines. Florence is an open-air exhibition of art and culture. It is famous worldwide, the heart of the Renaissance period and the home of the fine arts and literature. Florence has powerful symbols of Italian and European culture in every nook and cranny, to the extent that it is hard to identify this city with just one symbol. It may be the sculpture of David by Michelangelo, or perhaps the romantic Ponte Vecchio, or Giotto’s bell tower, but Florence could also be represented by famous people such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo or Dante Alighieri, to name but a few.

The word unique has been applied to cities all over the world, but for Venice it really is true. Nowhere on earth compares with this wonderful city of canals and slowly crumbling antiquity, but the phrase “see it now before it disappears” is partly true. Rising water levels threaten the old city, situated on an island and separated from the mainland by a bridge. The only “roads” in the old city are canals, from the broad thoroughfare of the Grand Canal to the many byways to discover. The excitement starts as you are transferred by water-bus or water-taxi from the airport or railway station, and that excitement never leaves you.

The hub of all this activity is St Mark’s Square, with the Basilica and Doge’s Palace, but one of the most memorable sights is Rialto Bridge, a ten-minute walk away, where you cross the 12° Grand Canal. Venice lives and breathes history and character 7° at every turn, and almost every house is a palace. Shop with the locals or in elegant boutiques; discover the many museums and ride on a water-bus; splash out on a meal on St Mark’s Distances from/to airports churches; Square or find a better value restaurant in a secluded square. (in kilometres) Whatever else you do, you must experience a gondola ride – TREVISO with or without a serenade! Go off-season when the crowds are Venice 30 Km sparse, even in winter Venice is atmospheric. In summer enjoy the sun at the Lido or nearby resorts, and at any time of year take MARCO POLO a cruise to the nearby islands of Murano and Burano, famed for Venice 12 Km their glassware and handicrafts.

How do you begin to describe the Eternal City? Rome is a world-class capital by any standard, and unique as it takes in the Vatican City, a self-governing state and the heart of the Roman Catholic church. Wherever you look there are reminders of a glorious and sometimes scandalous past. The magnificent ancient monuments, the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the forums are still part of everyday life and make Rome a living museum. Climb the 137 Spanish Steps to gaze over the narrow, cobbled streets crammed with Renaissance and Baroque buildings, fine palaces, countless churches and famous fountains. Visit one of the many pavement trattoria and watch the world go by or scour the elegant boutiques with Rome’s most avid shoppers. There’s so much to see that you need to pace yourself and not try to cram too much in, but you must cross the River Tiber to enter the Vatican state, home to the Pope, to see St Peter’s. The Vatican complex houses 10 museums and masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel and St Paul’s Basilica. If you feel like taking a risk try putting your hand in the Mouth of Truth to test your sincerity, or throw a coin into the Trevi fountain. Either way you are sure to make a return visit to this wonderful city.

YOUR CONTRACT IS WITH Britaly Travel Limited, a member of ABTA. Trading as Typically Italian Holidays 1. Your Holiday Contract You can make a booking with us through your travel agent or by contacting us direct. Once we know your requirements and have checked the availability, we will tell you the up to date price of your chosen holiday. Before the booking is confirmed we reserve the right to increase or decrease the cost. If you choose to make the booking you will be guaranteeing that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking conditions. At this point we will issue you with a confirmation number and a contract will exist. This contract is made on the terms of these booking conditions, which are governed by English Law, and the jurisdiction of the English Courts. You may however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you wish to do so. We will then send you a confirmation invoice verifying the details and prices of the holiday booked. Please check the details of the invoices carefully and contact us immediately if there is any discrepancy. ALL HOLIDAYS AND OFFERS ADVERTISED IN THIS BROCHURE ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY 2. Your Financial Protection The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 require us to provide security for the monies that you pay for the package holidays booked from this brochure and for your repatriation in the event of our insolvency. We provide this security by way of a bond held by the Civil Aviation Authority under ATOL number 6872 and a bond held by ABTA. 3. ABTA We are a member of ABTA, membership number W6934. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of Conduct. We can also offer you an arbitration scheme for the resolution of disputes arising out of, or in connection with this contract. Furtherinformation on the Code and arbitration can be found at www.abta.com The arbitration scheme is arranged by ABTA and administered independently by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. It provides for a simple and inexpensive method of arbitration on documents alone with restricted liability on you in respect of costs. Full details will be provided on request or can be obtained from the ABTA website. The Scheme does not apply to claims for an amount greater than £5,000 per person. There is also a limit of £25,000 per booking form. Neither does it apply to claims which are solely in respect of physical injury or illness or their consequences. The Scheme can however deal with compensation claims which include an element of minor injury or illness subject to a limit of £1,000 on the amount the arbitrator can award per person in respect of this element. The application for arbitration and Statement of Claim must be received by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators within nine months of the date of return from the holiday. Outside this time limit arbitration under the Scheme may still be available if the company agrees, but the ABTA Code does not require such agreement. For injury and illness claims, you may like to use the ABTA / Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Mediation Procedure. This is a voluntary scheme and requires us to agree for mediation to go ahead. The aim is to help you resolve your dispute in a quick and cost effective way. Details on request or from www.abta.com. 4. Your Holiday Price 1) We reserve the right to alter the prices of any of the holidays shown in our brochure. You will be advised of the current price of the holiday that you wish to book before your contract is confirmed. 2) When you make your booking you must pay a deposit from £180 per person. Should the travel arrangements be on a low cost carrier or on a restricted saver ticket the payment for this part of your booking will be due for payment in full at the time of booking (any cancellation or changes to ticketed flights will result in a full loss) and will alter the deposit due. The balance of the price of your travel arrangements must be paid at least 12 weeks before your departure date. If the deposit and/or balance is not paid on time, we shall cancel your travel arrangements. If the balance is not paid on time we shall retain your deposit. All monies you pay to the travel agent are held by him on our behalf at all times. Payments made directly to Britaly Travel Limited may be made by Access, American Express, Visa, Mastercard but an additional processing charge of 2% will apply. The price of your travel arrangements was calculated using exchange rates quoted in the “Financial Times Guide to World Currencies” on the 30th August 2011 in relation to the following currencies Euro 1.1 The Price Policy ­­ The price of your travel arrangements may vary due to changes in transport costs, including the cost of fuel, scheduled airlines and other cost changes which are part of the contract between the airlines (and their agents) and the tour operator, taxes or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports and exchange rates, Government action, such as VAT and other changes mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have booked. However there will be no change within 30 days of your departure In the case of a small variation, an amount equivalent to 2% of the price of your travel arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment charges, will be absorbed or retained. You will be charged for the amount over and above that, plus an administration charge of £1.00 per person together with an amount to cover agents’ commission. If this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your travel arrangements, you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (if this is of equivalent or higher quality you will not have to pay more but if it is of lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges.

We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. Should the price of your holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, by more than 2% of your holiday cost, then any refund due will be paid to you. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place. 5. If You Change Your Booking If, after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking or your travel agent. You will be asked to pay an administration charge of £20, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Note: Certain travel arrangements (e.g. flight tickets purchased from low cost carriers or restricted tickets) may not be changeable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements. 6. If You Cancel Your Holiday You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the person who made the booking or your travel agent on your behalf must be received at our offices. Since we incur costs in cancelling your travel arrangements, you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges up to the maximum shown in clause 7. Note: If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges 7. If We Change or Cancel Your Holiday It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your travel arrangements, but we do plan the arrangements many months in advance. Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will advise you or your travel agent of them at the earliest possible date. We also reserve the right to cancel your holiday in the event of a major change and will inform the travel agent as soon as reasonably possible However, we will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 10 weeks before your departure date, except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance. If we are unable to provide the booked travel arrangements, you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value). In accordance with EU regulations we are required to advise you of the actual carrier operating your flight/connecting flight/transfer. We do this by providing you with written confirmation as soon as the booking is confirmed. Any change to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate. Such a change is deemed to be a minor change. Other examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same standard.

The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so. Force Majeure: This means that we will not pay you compensation if we have to cancel or change your travel arrangements in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include, for example, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions. 8. If You Have A Complaint If you have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant supplier (e.g. your airlines, hotelier, car hire etc) and if any further assistance is required please contact our office, who will endeavour to put things right. Matters can most easily be resolved for you on the spot, when the supplier can see and understand the exact nature of any problems you have. It is unreasonable to not take any action whilst on holiday and then complain. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please follow this up within 21 days of your return home by writing to our Customer Services Department at Britaly Travel Limited, Britaly House 8-10 London Road, Peterborough PE2 8AR giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you.


It is strongly recommended that you communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question as well as to our representative without delay and complete a report form whilst in resort. Or call our UK office for assistance. If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in resort and this may affect your rights under this contract. 9. Our Liability to You

10. Personal Injury unconnected with your booked travel arrangements If you, or any member of your party, suffer death, illness or injury whilst overseas arising out of an activity which does not form part of your package travel arrangements or an excursion arranged through us, we shall at our discretion, offer advice, guidance and assistance. Where legal action is contemplated and you want our assistance, you must obtain our written consent prior to commencement of proceedings. Our consent will be given subject to you undertaking to assign any costs, benefits received under any relevant insurance policy to ourselves. We limit the cost of our assistance to you or any member of your party to £5,000.

If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed by us or our suppliers we will pay you appropriate compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of your travel arrangements. However we will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to: you; or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall.

11. Passport, Visa and Immigration Requirements

Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of twice the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to (a) The contractual terms of the companies which provide the transportation for your travel arrangements. These terms are incorporated into this contract; and (b) Any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage. We are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these or any conventions.

12. Your responsibility

You can ask for copies of the transport companies’ contractual terms, or the international conventions, from our offices Britaly Travel Limited, Britaly House 8-10 London Road, Peterborough PE2 8AR. Under EU law you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. However reimbursement in such cases will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 6. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Air Transport Users’ Council on 020 7240 6061 www.auc.org.uk

Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with passport, visa or immigration requirements. NAMES GIVEN TO US SHOULD MATCH THOSE ON YOUR PASSPORTS
