Day one – Friday
Welcome to Christmas in Newport!
Welcome to Newport and celebrate this Christmas season in the grand fashion!  This weekend the glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle you as we tour three magnificent mansions decked out in Yuletide finery. Music, tours, and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at the Newport Mansions. Enjoy holiday memories by visiting The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House this holiday season. Thousands of poinsettia plants, spectacular evergreens, trees, wreaths and fresh flowers and 19th century style ornaments turn the houses and their grounds into a Christmas wonderland.  Dining tables set with period silver and china and mannequins dressed in authentic costumes complete the elegant setting.  On our way into Newport, we’ll visit the Newport Winery and sample some of the award winning wines and enjoy the wonderful romance of wine making.  Then, check into our Newport hotel for the next two evenings.  This evening, enjoy a delicious dinner along with a visit by our favorite Jolly Ol Elf! 
Day Two - Saturday
Newport Tour & Mansions
After breakfast, we’ll meet our guide and depart for a tour of Newport and along the Ten Mile drive. Step back in time to the opulent era of the Gilded age where elite families such as the Vanderbilt’s and Astor’s built their “summer cottages” to retreat from the city life.  We’ll journey along the Ten Mile drive viewing many of these magnificent mansions as decorated for the holiday Season!  Mid-day, enjoy some free time along the waterfront for some holiday shopping at the many fine shops, boutiques and galleries that Newport has to offer.  This afternoon, visit the Marble House to enjoy the magnificent holiday decorations as we tour this beautiful mansion.  We’ll return to the hotel to freshen up. Tonight, a very special evening is planned for us!  Enjoy an early dinner before we spend a ‘Holiday Evening at the Breakers’.  Enjoy continuous live holiday music and sample holiday sweets, eggnog and cider and stroll the house at our leisure. Thousands of poinsettia plants, spectacular evergreens, trees and wreaths, fresh flowers and 19th century-style ornaments will adorn this ‘summer cottage’.
