Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Tour Destinations in Italy

Rimini is a lively resort situated on Italy’s east coast, boasting a 10-mile stretch of sandy beaches, a superb selection of discos, bars and nightclubs and an excellent range of restaurants. The resort is close to the independent state of San Marino, which is ideal for duty-free shopping. You will also find a selection of activities nearby to keep your group entertained such as crazy golf, ten pin bowling and go karting. With its warm sunshine, bustling nightlife and growing interest in rugby, this destination will provide a memorable tour.

Chioggia is a beach resort on Italy’s Adriatic Coast.  Often referred to as ‘The Little Venice’ Chioggia is located close to Venice, and is one of Italy's major fishing ports.  Situated in the heart of the Italian rugby area, teams such as Padova and Treviso are both close by. Your accommodation is located near to the beach, and day trips to Venice, the Rovigo wine producing areas and the Gardaland theme park (the biggest in Europe after Disneyland) are all possible.  This combined with the warm Italian climate will be a memorable tour.
