What is a multi-centre holiday?

With the pressures and stress of everyday life, holiday time is becoming more and more precious, and many travellers are choosing to make the most of their time by opting for a holiday that allows them to visit more than one place on a single trip. This is the essence of a multi-centre holiday – a vacation that takes you to several destinations in turn so that you can enjoy the diversity of a single country, or even explore more of a continent, such as Europe, on one vacation.


Benefits of a multi-centre holiday

We believe that there are many benefits to a multi-centre holiday. Here are just a few:

  • See more, do more: One of the main benefits of a multi-centre holiday is the opportunity to see and do more on a single trip. It is almost impossible for boredom to creep in when you enjoy a trip like this, making a multi-centre holiday a great option for families.
  • Diversity: Enjoying a multi-centre holiday to more than one destination allows you to see a variety of sights and experience a range of cultures, giving you a more rounded view of a particular country. For example, the culture in North Italy is very different to that in the south, as is the cuisine and the architecture.
  • Making the most of your time: With so many beautiful sights to enjoy, it would be a shame to stay in just one city on your holiday. Multi-centre holidays allow you to visit cities that you’ve dreamed of visiting on a single trip, helping you save money and make the most of your time.


The downsides

While we love multi-centre holidays, there are some things to consider, such as:

  • Travel: If you’re enjoying a multi-centre holiday then you will obviously need to travel between cities and to new hotels, which means a little more packing and unpacking than if you were based in just one destination.
  • Less time in each city: We like to think of multi-centre holidays as a “tasting menu” of the country, allowing you to sample a little of each city. However, with the restrictions of working within a single holiday of, say, 10 to 14 days, this does mean that you have less time in each city than you may want – especially if you fall in love with a particular city! To counter this, we recommend using your multi-centre holiday as a taster and then visiting the cities that you love for a longer break at another time.


Our favourite Italy multi-centre holidays

The best multi-centre holidays in Italy take into consideration cities that complement one another, as well as geography so that you can enjoy seamless travel between locations. Here are some of our tried-and-tested favourite Italy multi-centres:

  • Rome, Florence and Venice: This is one of our most popular Italy multi-centres, taking you to the three main tourist destinations in Italy. We recommend either going south to north (Rome – Florence – Venice) or from north to south (Venice – Florence – Rome).
  • Rome and Sorrento: This is a great option for a city and coast break, and is particularly popular with honeymooners.
  • Venice and Lake Garda: We love this mix of magic and relaxation – a great option for couples.
  • Italy and Greece: In recent times, we have seen an increase in customers looking for a Europe touring holiday and, by far, Italy and Greece are the preferred destinations and this Europe multi-centre is a good choice if you want a holiday that mixes culture with stunning beach resorts.

Is a multi-centre holiday for you?

With good planning, a multi-centre can work for anyone, including couples looking for a relaxing and romantic break or families looking for new sights to entertain the children. However, we stress “with good planning”! If you simply book your flights and hotels, but don’t consider how you are going to travel between cities, this can cause unwanted stress during your holiday. Instead, we recommend booking your multi-centre holiday through a qualified and experience tour operator, who will be able to take care of all the aspects of your trip, including flights, accommodation and inter-city transfers. We specialise in Italy multi-centres and also offering touring holidays of Europe featuring combinations such as Italy and Greece, Italy and Croatia, Rome and Paris, and much more.
