The following day-by-day itinerary is subject to change and refinement nearer the
date of departure. The group is advised that entrance times and venues are subject
to change. Ongoing restoration works and intervention ensure that buildings
and given spaces, such as chapels, can be closed to the public at very short
notice. Also individual works of art may be subject to restoration or absent
through being on exhibition elsewhere. All churches will close at lunchtime and
it is advisable that an early start each morning will ensure maximum visiting times.
