Pembrokeshire GB
Although the hotel was ideally located is was very, very basic, WIFI was only available in a very cramped small area in reception, no phone signals and very dated no TV etc.

Loads to do in Florence, great City, would consider a return but a higher class hotel.

The tour guide was excellent and really helped us getting orientated.

Then have a group lunch before visiting the Ducati Museum and Factory, here your students will learn about the 90-year history of the company as well as witness the manufacturing process and stage by stage assembly lines of the motorbikes.

Spend your evening in Florence and enjoy a group evening meal.

Day 3

On your third day, your group will proceed to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum and learn about the history and craftsmanship involved in the creation of Ferragamo brands. Then enjoy a group lunch after your visit.

Your trip will then be followed by a visit to the Silver Museum in the Pitti Palace and discover sophisticated collections of ivory, jewellery, silver miniatures and Chinese & Japanese porcelain.

Travel back to Florence and enjoy a group evening meal.

Day 4

After breakfast, check-out of your hotel, you may have some free time to explore this city. Then proceed to your airport transfer to Pisa and return to the UK.
