Embark on not one, but two Italian city breaks with this offer from Citrus Holidays. Now £199 per person, the 4-night package includes return flights, accommodation in both Rome and Venice, train travel between the cities and daily breakfast. And that's all for up to 23% less than it would cost to put the holiday together yourself.
Depart on select dates from November-March, 2015. For a full range of dates, visit Citrus Holidays' website.
The trip starts in Rome with a stay at the Ars Hotel, which has a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013. Housed in an 18th-century villa, the hotel is in Rome's quiet Monte Sacro district, just outside the city centre and easily accessible by bus. The Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps are four miles away.
Next, take the train from Rome to Venice, where you'll check in to the Hotel Ambasciatori. This 4-star property is in Mestre, roughly a 10-minute bus or boat journey from St Mark's Square and Venice's network of bridges, canals and surrounding islands.
Transfers & baggage
Transfers are not included, but both cities are connected to their respective airports by frequent bus services and both train stations are in the city centre. Checked baggage costs from £35 per person, return.
