Country Roads of Umbria & Tuscany – 9 Days
While visiting the Vatican City, clients gain VIP access to the Vatican Museums and take in the renowned Bramante Staircase.

In Plitvice National Park, guests have the chance to choose between two Make Travel Matter Experiences – joining a Local Expert to hear about how the park researches and monitors the natural habitat of species, or they can choose to learn about women’s economic empowerment in the region and meet the hardworking women of the Tara Community Centre who produce beautiful and traditional handicrafts. The highlight of the trip is an Insight Experience allowing clients to taste fresh oysters plucked straight from the sea, hear the story of a local cultivator, and how he masters his art. Afterwards, enjoy a Deliciously Authentic Dining experience over a Sea-to-Table tasting serving fresh shellfish and local wine. In Dubrovnik, the most stunning hotel awaits and guests Stay in Style at the Hotel Dubrovnik Palace, overlooking the Adriatic and offering the most splendid sunsets.
