The three northern Italian cities of Brescia, Bergamo and Monza are usually overlooked in favour of their neighbours of Milan, Turin and Verona, but offer a rich artistic and architectural legacy, explored in detail on this wonderful new tour, in the company of renowned art historian Clare Ford-Wille. From a host of magnificent churches to acclaimed galleries, this tour will open up a treasure trove of artistic wonders little known to the usual tourist. Add to that, a distinctive northern cuisine and a charming, traditional hotel in the heart of Brescia and this adds up to a tour to relish.

Accommodation

Hotel Vittoria, Brescia
Traditional and atmospheric, the five-star Vittoria dates back to the 18th century but was totally renovated in 2010 to leave a hotel for the modern traveller to savour. A stylish restaurant, lounge and bar add to its appeal as does its superb location right in the heart of the city in a quiet pedestrianized zone. Room facilities include private bathroom, TV, minibar, safe and hairdryer.

FLIGHTS
Please note that all flight times are provisional and subject to change according to airline schedules. 

HEALTH & INSURANCE – EHIC CARD
Please note that EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) only allows access to the same state-provided healthcare as a resident of the EU country they are temporarily visiting. It is NOT an alternative to travel insurance and will not provide the same level of cover as a travel insurance policy. The EHIC will not cover any private medical healthcare or the cost of things such as repatriation to the UK or lost or stolen property. It is also important to note that each country’s healthcare system is slightly different, so the EHIC might not cover everything that would be generally free on the NHS. On the EHIC application website,  there is a section called Access to Healthcare Abroad which clarifies all the conditions and inclusions.
