WHEN WE GO off the beaten path and explore this region of Tuscany, we will become familiar with the streets and faces and feel like we live in Montecatini. Staying at the same hotel for a week allows us to unpack and settle in. Each day you can go out into the area with the tour coach or be on your own to live La Dolce Vita, the sweet life. By the time we leave Montecatini, it will be our own little village. Then we enjoy two nights in Rome before returning.
NOTE: This tour has been postponed to April 2022 and. this webpage will be fully updated in early June.

If you do not want either air flights nor insurance, apply discount code NO-AIR-NO-INSURANCE and $1301 will be deducted. There is no deduction for not using the free Central Illinois departure coach.
If you are uncertain about whether you will be arranging your air flights, just let us know by May 1 and we will give you the same credit of $1011 then. After that, cancelling the air fare will give you partial credit only due to airline's penalty. If flying separate from the group, we recommend either staying overnight at a Rome airport hotel on October 1 to join our private motor coach which will head north to Montecatini after the flight's arrival, or meet us at the hotel in Montecatini Terme.

We expect to have an offer from the airline & flight times that is the best overall value shortly. Some of you have asked for the price to upgrade to either Business Class or Economy Plus (extra legroom) and so we will let you all know about them also.
A few are flying in the night before our Chicago flight's arrival so they will be ready when our flight arrives. If you might use frequent flier miles on the airline that we announce, we will need to know that by December 22 to give you full credit for not using our group rate ticket. After that, we lose money deposited for cancellations of unused air seats.
Most double rooms have 2 twin beds but if you would like a room with 1 double bed, let us know in the Occupancy question of the booking form and we will request it (but it cannot be guaranteed).
Room with one bed. The number of single rooms is limited, maybe smaller and less well-located than double rooms. If you want to share a room, let us know in the Notes To Organizer, and we may be able to find you a roommate.
