VENICE

Venice Built entirely on water by men who dared defy the sea, Venice is inexpressibly romantic and like no other place in the world. There really are no cars in Venice. You get around primarily on foot or by boat on the famous canals that lace through the city. The Grand Canal, Venice's main street, testifies to the genius and expertise of its builders and the desires of its nobility, who had their showcase palaces built one after another. Float past the imposing facade of Palazzo Vendramin-Calergi, and the baroque cathedral of Santa Maria della Salute. Pass under the Rialto Bridge as you catch sight of Palazzo Ducale. A sail across Venice under the moonlight is truly magical. For the 12 days leading up to Quaresima (Lent), Carnevale is celebrated by more than half a million people taking part in masquerade balls, historical processions, concerts, plays, street performances and fashion shows.

AMENDMENTS & CANCELLATION Special features offered by hotels are subject to change at the hotel’s discretion. In the unlikely event that a major change involving a pre-departure change of hotel, departure or return date, departure city or destination becomes necessary, we will notify you as soon as possible. If you find the revised arrangements we offer unacceptable, you will have the option of cancellation without charge provided that you notify us within seven days of your receipt of notice of the change (or prior to departure date if notified less than seven days prior). In the event of a change, we will try to substitute comparable services, but in the event of complete cancellation by us or a supplier, our only liability will be to provide a refund in the form of an Apple Vacations credit. For charter flights only, if landing rights are denied by a foreign government, the flight will be cancelled with a full refund. 4. REFUNDS Any refunds always will be made as soon as possible in the original form of payment. Please note, however, that no refunds will be made for any services provided in the itinerary that you do not use. Passengers who do not travel are subject to 100% cancellation penalties. AV-OK Plan payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. Refunds (if applicable) for scheduled air programs will only be issued upon the return of the unused ticket. If you booked your Apple Vacation through a travel agent, all communications prior to your departure, including payment and refund transactions, must be via your travel agent. If for any reason you should lose your scheduled airline ticket, you will have to purchase a new ticket at your own expense and upon your return home, you must contact your travel agent to begin refund procedures by completing a “Lost Ticket Application” (fees may apply). Any refunds made by the airline will be based on the value of the original ticket issued less any airline processing fees. In most cases the replacement ticket you have to purchase will be more expensive. 5. OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU Apple Vacations and its suppliers, Kuoni Travel and Central Holidays, have made arrangements with airlines, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide you with the services you purchase; and is represented by companies organized and existing in destination, including providers of transportation and access to excursions. We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure that proper arrangements have been made for your vacation. However, we do not accept and expressly disclaim any liability for the actions or omissions of these independent suppliers. If you find you have any dispute with such persons, however, we will give you as much reasonable help as we can in resolving a dispute.

Apple Vacations is not responsible for losses or damages arising from bodily injury, property or other damage caused by factors beyond our control, including but not limited to flight delays, airline turbulence, transportation accidents or other unforeseen circumstances. All prices and features described herein (as well as in Apple’s advertisements and website) are subject to change without notice. Some hotel room photographs do not depict the standard room category.

If any term or provision of this Fair Trade Contract is held invalid or otherwise unenforceable, the enforceability of the remaining terms or provisions will not be impaired thereby. 6. TOUR RESTRICTIONS On Escorted Tours to Italy, we do not accept children under 8 years of age, because we have found that they are too young to enjoy touring. On Cruise Packages and Independent Tours there is no age limit. Land arrangements for infants under 2 years are free of charge,providing parents pay hotels directly for food, crib, etc. Disabled participants who require special assistance must be accompanied by a qualified helper who assumes total responsibility for the disabled participant’s well-being. Furthermore, most transportation services (including motor coaches) are not equipped with wheelchair ramps and for safety reasons, passengers requiring wheelchairs cannot be transported on Escorted Tours, River Cruises, or Sea Cruises. We reserve the right to accept or reject any person as a tour participant and to expel from the tour any participant whose conduct is deemed incompatible with the interests of the tour group. Any incurred expenses will be charged to the expelled tour participants. 7. SIGHTSEEING & ITINERARIES Sightseeing is included in the itinerary and is under the direction of licensed local guides where required. Entrance fees to all places visited are included where indicated. During local holidays, some sights such as museums may be closed or unavailable for visits. We reserve the right to vary the sequence of sightseeing and/or to reroute the order of cities should circumstances demand it. Should this occur, the itinerary content will be maintained, however, the order may change. In Italy, the Papal Audience takes place on Wednesdays and the papal Blessing is on Sundays. Both are only available in accordance with His Holiness’ schedule, and may not take when He is out of the country. Optional excursions are offered in most cities. Your tour director and/or host(ess) will advise you of the optional excursions available on your tour, all of which must be purchased locally (and cannot be charged on credit cards except during cruising). There are no refunds for any unused portion of these excursions. 8. HANDICAPPED SERVICES AND FACILITIES Should you desire any special service or equipment to assist with a disability, please let us know in advance so we can advise the air carrier (services available vary by carrier). Although we will do our best to assist you, Apple Vacations does not guarantee the availability of wheelchairs at any airport. Wheelchair accessible rooms may be requested but cannot be guaranteed. Standards may vary from property to property and country to country and are not within the control of Apple Vacations. 9.
