Kirker Holidays has expanded its Italy programme for 2017 to offer a wider choice of hand-picked hotels in city, coast and countryside locations, as well as adding several new Italian Cultural Tours & Music Holidays.

Clients receive a range of added extras including tickets for Rome’s Vatican Museums, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Doge’s Palace in Venice and, new for 2017, tickets for the Brera Gallery in Milan.

For those seeking to create a tailor-made holiday including more than one destination, the operator's experts will create a bespoke itinerary combining selected hotels with travel by high-speed rail, car hire or private transfers.

As an example of prices, a new Milan break offers the cultural highlights of Italy’s fashion capital, with three new hotels to choose from - the five-star deluxe Mandarin Oriental (three nights from £1,448 per person); the intimate, Art Nouveau Château Monfort (four-star deluxe, three nights from £876); and the four-star superior Manzoni – a peaceful, privately owned retreat in the heart of the shopping district, where three nights cost from £788.

Prices are based on two people sharing and include flights, private transfers, breakfast accommodation (based on two sharing), guide notes to restaurants, museums and sightseeing, plus the services of a concierge.

The company has also doubled its offering on Sicily, adding the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Noto as well as Cefalù and the operator's debut dedicated Sicily brochure will be launched this month.
