CITY-BREAKS
:
Places are generally within 45 minutes total transfer time from the airport - train or bus from the airport to the city centre followed by a 10-15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride. All places have been selected so that you can easily explore the city on foot with minimal use of public transport.

by-TRAIN: fly to the recommended airport and take a train to the place you will be staying for your short break. Airport transfer times are generally less than 1h30 by train. Almost all FLY-TRAIN breaks can be enjoyed as a FLY-DRIVE break, but in general convenient and cheaper by train.

WE-MEETU holidays: fly to the recommended airport where we will meet you on your arrival at the nearest airport or mainline railway station, and take you to your hotel either by car or mini-bus.

SELF-DRIVE: fly to the recommended airport, hire a car, and drive to the place you will be staying for your short break. Airport transfer times are generally less than 45 minutes by car.

All short breaks are selected according to the following criteria: Easy access from the main regional cities and airports - Comfortable transfer times - City, countryside, seaside, lake and mountain locations - Charming places to stay on a B&B basis - Highly recommended locations that make an ideal base for a 3/4 night break.

We are continually refining and adding to our portfolio of Short-Breaks in Italy.
All our short breaks are presented with photos and descriptions taken and selected by us personally to give an impression as true to the reality as we can, in partnership with local family run hotels and guest houses.
These are genuine Short Breaks chosen and researched by people working for or in partnership with Xtrallusion.
This is NOT an unverified 'web portal' or online directory - we select only those places that satisfy our criteria for price, quality, charm and location.
Places to stay have been carefully selected so that you can reach them easily - ideal for long weekends and short break holidays when short transfer times are important.

Testimonials: "The location, ambiance and service at the hotel was wonderful. Everything was A1 and all the staff were delightful. The town was an ideal location both as a base and as a little resort in it's own right. If we didn't want to go far there were still lovely strolls and more interesting walks on the doorstep." Elsie Sedgwick, London, UK.
