An area of exceptional beauty, natural attractions and uniqueness
New world game series Tour to Italy and Croatia
A Mondial tour to romantic Italy and beautiful Croatia, a Lm50 Malta International Airport shopping voucher and a year's membership in the Scrabble Club await the lucky winner of the new word game series starting today. The tour will be made between August 24-31 and includes sightseeing in Rijeka and Trieste.
There will be an optional full day city tour of Zagreb and the northern Croatian city of Varadzin, the administrative, economic, cultural and educational centre of the country on the right bank of the river Drava.
Another optional excursion will be to Ljubljana, the capital of neighbouring Slovenia - a charming, inexpensive city with a relaxed pace, active café life and fondness for poets, referred to by visitors as "the Prague without tourists".
Yet Ljubljana still has its own distinctive character with every nook and cranny filled with whimsical and delightful surprises.
The tour offers an optional excursion to the beautiful national park of the Plitvice lakes, an area of exceptional beauty, natural attractions and uniqueness, declared by Unesco as a World's natural inheritance area. Rijeka, one of the most important port cities of Croatia and Trieste, a beautiful city in an idyllic setting backed by a white limestone plateau and facing the Adriatic are included in the tour. Other excursions will be to the unique city of Venice, to the most famous of all Italian resorts, Cortina d'Ampezzo, in the snow-covered Dolomite mountains and to Padua, the city of St Anthony.
The winner of the word game which ended last Saturday is being drawn on Tuesday. The prize is a free place on Mondial's Mediterranean Cruise between July 16-23 and a year's membership in the Scrabble Club. The six nine-letter words for the series were undertone, nefarious, pervasive, sentiment, harlequin and undercoat.
