The dates are set as Saturday 1st June to Sunday 9th June. The hotel in Cortina d'Ampezzo  is booked from the evening of Sunday 2nd June to the following Saturday morning allowing 2 days to get to Cortina d'Ampezzo and 2 days to return home, although, some Old Gits are extendiing their holiday either before or afterwards.

How Much?

The hotel in Cortina d'Ampezzo will cost 495.41 for 6 nights, B&B, for a single occupancy of a double room. Parking in the hotel car park is included. Above that, there are the costs for crossing the channel, fuel and tolls to Cortina d'Ampezzo, overnight accomodation on the journey there and the journey back, and food, drinks and petrol bills for the week. Last year worked out at around 1600 per person but the only costs you will pay for are your own.
