Kirker Holidays has added 17 new itineraries to its cultural tours and music holidays for next year- both in the UK and across mainland Europe.

As examples, an eight-night 'The Island of Aphrodite' travels to both north and south Cyprus and offers an insight into the island’s long and chequered history whilst also introducing visitors to the traditional values and village life of its people.

Based on March 17 and October 27 departures, prices lead in at £1,998 per person.

Alternatively, a five-night Villas of the Veneto option in Italy is escorted by tour lecturer Charlie Hall and focuses on the work of Andrea Palladio. Guests can admire a selection of his most notable buildings and villas, set amid the rural landscape of the Veneto, and visit the pretty hilltop town of Asolo, which offers views of the Venetian plain. Based on May 10 and September 13 departures, prices lead in at £1,595.
