Italian Holiday (7 Days)

My husband and I are usually "do it yourself" travelers, but am I SO glad we went with Trafalgar on this "Italian Holiday" trip, and I'll tell you details of why I think this is a GREAT way to see Italy! First off, there are venues like the Vatican that an individual simply can't get into without waiting for hours in a long line, but Trafalgar guides shepherd you past endless lines, and get you in early. The day we saw the Vatican, people had gotten into lines hours early, but the Pope was set to visit at 10 am, so those poor folks were going to be very disappointed to learn they weren't going to get in after all. We were escorted in early, because Trafalgar arranges everything for you. Then a local guide who was extremely knowledgable gave us a fascinating tour, which made everything we were seeing that much more meaningful and interesting. You wear little headsets that are NOT a prerecorded thing, but enable you to hear her live tour. You can ask questions, which is so nice. I'm not even Catholic, but was utterly mesmerized and blown away by the Vatican. I'm sure you CAN do it on your own, but you'll wait forever, and not learn half as much. It's not like I'm going to Italy every week, so why not do it right and get a real tour? ( I'm so enthused, I should let everyone know I'm not a Trafalgar employee, and don't get any perks from sharing my enthusiasm!) . That was true of a lot of other places too; the local guides were all wonderful. Depending on your sophistication, you may or may not love the hotels. None took my breath away, but they were clean and in good areas, and some were quite attractive.Our main tour guide was Martin, and he assured us and reminded us that if we had any problems, please tell him so he could fix it. Well, at our first hotel, we were put into a room with one bed, but we'd requested 2 since hubby's a snorer and I'm a thrasher, so we did call Martin, and he did straighten it out very soon. This is something to say in Italy, because their hotels aren't usually up to US standards, frankly, and if you have a problem with your hotel and you are only staying somewhere one or 2 nights, how responsive do you think a hotel clerk will be? But if you are part of a tour group which brings that hotel lots of business, they are much more motivated to take care of you. This is another advantage to taking this tour, if you have limited time to see Italy, and want to see as much as possible in just over a week. We are penny pinchers, and this was expensive for us, but after going on it, neither of us begrudges the money, and my independent husband admits we could never have had all the wonderful experiences on our own. The breakfasts were very good, except Italians seem to like runny scrambled eggs, but there is LOADS to choose from, and I NEED a big breakfast! (I admit, I always stashed a bit of food in my purse for later too, but I was discreet!) Another thing we could not have done on our own was one of our favorite experiences: they took us to dinner at the most beautiful old villa in Tuscany! The owner was the soul of graciousness, and it was a spectacularly beautiful site; the grounds were like something gorgeous from a movie. There were lemon trees, roses, lavender, statues, paths, huge planters with blooming hydrangeas, and it all overlooked a valley of olive trees and grape vineyards. We spent the most relaxing evening, and were allowed to take all the pictures we wanted, and the dinner was delicious. You really got to appreciate Tuscany. A few of our dinners included as much wine as you wanted, and they don't add sulfites in Italy, so I became very European for a week! Another thing to be aware of is hidden costs in any tour company; they can really add up. Trafalgar did include quite a few meals, and quite a few amazing sites, so that makes a difference, and it ended up less expensive overall than others which had lots of "" that our tour included.. My husband and I paid for 2 optional tours: the Parthenon, and seeing "David" at the Academia. Again, we are ridiculously cheap, so we used a Rick Steve's book for our free time in other places. I think it's a good idea to buy his latest book and bring it with you, AND download some tours, because you can use it to do your own sightseeing, IF you are on a budget. We did the Rick Steve's tour in Verona, and we kept bumping into the folks on the optional tour, so I can't say that was an extra I minded missing! The biggest risk we took was in Florence. We could easily have seen a very famous cathedral where an amazing array of famous people are buried, but we really wanted to see the Uffizi Museum. Martin advised us to see the cathedral, because we might very well not get in to the Uffizi by the time we'd need to leave. We thanked him, then promptly RACED to wait in line at the Uffizi for more than an hour. You can arrange to get tickets days in advance, but we hadn't. (I guess to do that, we'd have had to know what time we'd be there..) We were super lucky to have about 45 minutes left to run around seeing our favorite statues and paintings that we'd researched on the Rick Steve's app while in line, including Botticelli's Venus Rising! It was one of the best days of my life; we were just so incredibly lucky. We waited in the general line, because the fast pass ticket do not tell you before you purchase them what time you'll get in; what good is that?!! I can't really recommend you do this though, because we might very well have not gotten in in time... Anyway, the glass blowing exhibit in Venice and the leather making exhibit in Florence were both very interesting, and were another thing available to you only as a Trafalgar guest. We didn't buy any glass or leather because we're cheapskates, but some of the ladies in our group bought stunning earrings at the glass factory, and they weren't expensive at all for such stunning, unique mementos...I wished I had! I wasn't thrilled with seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa for so long; I'd have been happy with 15 minutes of corny photography and then hit the road. But hubby and I went off site to an Indian restaurant near the back entrance, and had a great lunch cheap. (BTW, this review is completely helter skelter in terms of itinerary; I'm hopping all around out of sequence, sorry.) I'd been afraid Venice would be smelly and dirty, but despite a bad heat wave, it wasn't smelly or dirty. In fact, it was beautiful, absolutely amazing!! There's no other place like Venice - you MUST see it - and the cathedral and buildings and churches are incredible. We're musicians, so we had to go see the church where Antonio Vivaldi worked, Chiesa di Santa Maria della Pieta, and St. Mark's where all Gabrielli's antiphonal brass pieces were performed. Photos aren't allowed in St. Mark's, and a lady in front of us was actually caught and escorted out for taking a pic, but hubby snuck one anyway because he's a music nerd. Never mind that it's the tomb of ST. MARK WHO WROTE THE GOSPEL - hubby had to photograph the balconies where trumpet players of old performed! We didn't go on the optional tour of St. Mark's. I'm sure it was interesting, but the long line for the public moved surprisingly fast, and we wanted more free time in Venice to explore back streets, old bookstores, etc. I think people in our group basically found all the optional tours worthwhile except perhaps the one in Verona, but we had our own ideas, so we picked and chose, nothing wrong with that. We didn't pay for the gondola tour, but everyone else was unanimous in raving about it, and it was a lot of folks' favorite thing! We also went on the Trevi Fountain tour, and I think we could have done that one on our own, but they did also show us little neighborhoods of charming narrow streets, and Martin treated us all to the best gelato of my life: I chose "blood orange", and am salivating just writing that... My husband was afraid this would be an "old farts tour" - meaning very slow paced, but I teased him about this as we hurried to keep up! This tour involved a lot of walking and a pretty rigid wakeup schedule, so if you have mobility issues, it's not the tour for you. It's PERFECT if you want to see a big range of Italy in only 8 days though, so we really appreciated the pace. If you go when it may be hot, take an umbrella for shade. Yes, I know it sounds silly, but even my semi-macho husband was using one to ward off the scorching sun when we got a 95 degree heatwave. It makes a huge difference. I wore a hat the entire vacation, so if you're fair, pack one. Fortunately for us, everyone on our tour was just great, and we really enjoyed getting to know lots of fun, interesting people from all over, and of various ages. I can't imagine every batch of tourists are so great, but our group was a total pleasure. We never saw the Lake Cuomo area, but that's something we could do on our own someday. For getting a wonderful experience of Italy- seeing Rome,Florence, Tuscany, Venice, Pisa, etc. - you really get a fabulous tour with this group. Lastly, Martin talked an awful lot, (bring earplugs for the bus if you want to sleep!) but he was a great guy and very professional and knowledgable. Our driver Vincenzo was incredibly competent navigating tight squeezes and traffic, and everything was planned like clockwork for our convenience. I gave this 5 stars, and hope you love it if you go!! <3

Italy from North to South Tour

Italy from North to South

It was stressful finding our own transportation back to the hotel the two times it was required of us. We were not familiar with public transportation and did not realize the street our hotel was on (in Rome) had 3 stops and we took the wrong one. The bus we spent the most time on did not have enough room for my long legs. The food was good in most places but not the hotel in Florence or the lunch stop in Pompeii. My friend was robbed on the bus and the tour leader, Nicole, did not seem to care or help her.

Splendor of Sicily 8 Days Tour - from Catania Tour

Splendor of Sicily 8 Days Tour - from Catania

Let me start out by saying that Alicia was quite a good tour guide but perhaps could have walked a bit more slowly and stopped to rest in shaded places rather than in the direct sunlight. The amount of walking and the hot weather necessitated a bit more measured approach. I have several issues to bring up that were not satisfactory or should have been handled better. These are: 1. I was promised a transfer from my hotel n Catania to the Catania Airport for my return flight that was supposed to pick me up at 7:55 am on the morning I was leaving and the transfer ride didn't arrive. This transfer was supposed to be included at no charge. I waited about 15 minutes than had the hotel call me a taxi. I had to pay that fare. I was quite displeased that this arrangement was not honored. 2. I and several others on the tour were never informed that our tour guide(s) were actually employed by a different tour company. This meant that our tour guide was missing critical pieces of information that, at least in my case, were never communicated by Soleto Travel to her (e.g., dietary restrictions, information about that transfer that never did materialize, etc.) Why is it that I and others were never made aware that Soleto was not the only company involved, and that, in effect, we could not rely on the tour guide to have all of the information needed to be sure all aspects of this trip went smoothly and without problems? This seems to be a serious breach of communication with customers paying thousands of dollars to take an escorted tour. 3. Speaking of thousands f dollars, I, as a solo traveler, also paid a single supplement, meaning that I was paying more for the same accommodations that couples on the trip enjoyed. However, in Palermo, our group was split between two hotels, and I was unfortunate enough to be placed in a substandard hotel called Hotel Cristal Palace. Supposedly a 4 star hotel, this place was no better than a Motel 6 at best. I felt that the place was suspect when I walked into the first room I was assigned and smelled mildew right off the bat, and made note of the mismatched furniture that looked as if it had come from a yard sale. I always pull down bedding to inspect the sheets, and was glad I did--there was a clump of hairs between the top cover and the sheets! Disgusting! I immediately went to the front desk to complain and ask for a change of rooms. The first question out of the front desk clerk's mouth was whether I had used the bathroom in the room--can you imagine? Yes, she did apologize, but the fact that they were more concerned that I had used the facilities and then wanted to change rooms, thus causing the need for them to reclean the room, took priority over a guest's horror about the room not being cleaned to standards to begin with, speaks to the priorities (or lack thereof) of the hotel's management. I was definitely left with the impression that I had inconvenienced them. So I was given a new room, escorted by a drill sergeant-type of assistant, for what reason I can't fathom, who stood there while I briefly inspected to be sure there were no hairs in THAT bed. That room was a sad one also, but at least lacked hairs. This was a very poor hotel and the staff was completely devoid of customer service skills, and to make matters worse, others on the same tour who had been assigned to the other hotel raved about their accommodations. I think it's highly unfair that people paying for the same tour would receive unequal accommodations, and I feel this experience very definitely skewed my perceptions about the tour from that point on. 4. I have to comment on the late dinner time we suffered through each night. I realize that we were in Italy/Sicily and it's customary to eat late, but many of us (myself as the only American but also a large contingent from Australia) felt that the late dinner hour plus number of courses (dinner starting at 8:30 pm and going til 10 or 10:15 pm), combined with the need to get up early to be on the tour bus on time in the morning, just didn't work. I spent a number of evenings trying to sleep but being very uncomfortable; I adjusted how much of the meal I would consume, but it was still difficult to sleep properly with a lot of food digesting; and at least twice I skipped the meal altogether. I think a compromise should be made between the customary late dining and the needs of the travelers in the group--dinner at perhaps 7:30 pm, and fewer courses. 5. It was unfortunate that the itinerary couldn't be adjusted a bit on the day our tour was scheduled to go to Mt. Etna--we were scheduled to go to Etna in the morning and to Taormina in the afternoon. Of all things, it rained, thunderstormed, on our way and all through the very brief time we had on Mt. Etna, and this was one location on the tour that I was really enthusiastic to see. Given the proximity of the locations on the itinerary that day, I really wish someone had the authority to adjust the itinerary so that we could have seen this unique, once in a lifetime location (Etna) when the weather improved in the afternoon, and visited the tourist town (Taormina) in the morning, when the weather was bad. Ultimately, it would not have affected how the rest of the itinerary was followed. 6. Speaking of flexibility of the itinerary, we could have used more free time in areas where shopping was better, and also some unique places, like the salt flats, where it would have been nice to have a tour or some on-site interpretation, rather than commentary on the bus. I think we got to spend all of 15 minutes there as well. I am definitely of the impression that someone needs to think this itinerary through a little bit more--it may be a bit too ambitious as is, but doesn't necessarily allow enough time or flexibility to visit and take in the very unique places that Sicily offers. I do think that much of the tour was good--the Hotel Il Principe was comfortable, our guide was knowledgeable, at least about sites we visited, the bus driver was skilled, and the food was for the most part good, if provided too late, but of the not so good affected my overall enjoyment, and for that, I leave a bit disappointed.

Sicilian Landscapes: Catania-Catania (8 days/7 nights)

We did love our tour although there were a few things that could of been better for us. 1 we had great anticipation for good Sicilian food. The restaurants we went to were very average and fish EVERY night was a great disappointment to us. I had hoped for some Arancini balls, nice pastas & fresh produce. 2 The days were very long, some days we had 2hrs free time for lunch and more free time in the afternoon. We would of appreciated returning to our Hotel for some down time and have dinner a little earlier than 8.00 - 8.30pm every night. We were eating till 10.00pm at night and on the road again by 8.00am next day. The content of the tour was fantastic and we covered an amazing area of Sicily, perhaps a little less content would of made it more relaxing. Only the thoughts of 2 travellers.

We got to see everything we wanted to see and more, met wonderful new friends and I can't stress enough that this was thanks to the best tour director we could have had. Thank you Granluca for a holiday we will never forget!

Best of Italy (Classic, Summer, 11 Days) Tour

Best of Italy (Classic, Summer, 11 Days)

My wife and I took the Best of Italy tour in September, 2017. The tour director (Debra) and bus driver (Alessio) were excellent. The itinerary was also excellent. We visited all of the sights in Rome, Florence, Tuscany, Venice, Pisa, Assissi, Pompei, Sorrento, Positano, and Capri. The hotels were average at best. All of the breakfast buffets were disappointing. We had terrific lunches at rest stops while driving from city to another. The food at these rest stops is surprisingly good. My biggest complaint is the included group dinners which were either at the hotel or in a restaurant. These dinners did not offer any choice of meals. They just served everyone the same thing where the food was tasteless and sometimes inedible. My whole life I heard how amazing the food in Italy is supposed to be. Because this happened on several dinners, I cannot give Insight a overall good review. On the days where were able to eat out on our own for either lunch or dinner, we did enjoy the food at restaurants that we found by recommendations.

This tour was a once in a lifetime experience....Fantastic! Would definetely recommend it to anyone!
I would recommend it to my friends.
The guide Placido was excellent. The driver was great as well. Tour was enjoyable with full days and decent hotels. The meals that were included were just ok. I would suggest that the servers go the extra mile and introduce each service rather than just placing them on the table. That small gesture would add a little more "class" and appreciation. Nice to know what we are eating!!! The especially bad eating experience was on day 5. Etna. The lovely restaurant presented 8 of us with 2 meager platters of eggplant and

Some of what you think of as traditional Italian foods are actually American interpretations and not widely available there. Some examples are heavy cream sauces such as alfredo, spaghetti and meatballs, and chicken parmigiana (however, you may find these items in more tourist-oriented restaurants).

Which Way to Go?

Departing from London, your tour may head in one of two different directions. One way around Europe typically takes you to either Brussels or Amsterdam. Followed by Germany Austria and Switzerland, then onwards to Venice, Florence and Rome. You will then head back to London via Paris for one or two nights. Highlights will include Swiss mountain scenery, a Rhine cruise, glassblowing in Venice, perhaps a gondola ride. You'll get to see the ancient ruins in Rome, some of which are remarkably preserved such as the Colosseum. Other famous must see sights are the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Throw 3 coins in and you are sure to return!

See a Different Point of View

In Paris why not head up Tour Montparnasse instead of the Eiffel Tower? This lesser known view point will give you a great panorama that will include the Eiffel Tower in your photos! Relax with a cafe au lait and a croissant at a pavement cafe in the artist quarter of Montmartre or float down the Seine on a sightseeing river boat.

Why italy is the perfect solo trip destination.

A solo trip to Italy is always a good idea

If you’re planning a solo trip, look no further than Italy for your next independent getaway.

Best Areas For Solo Travel In Italy

From the winding vineyards of Tuscany to the ancient ruins of Rome to the peaks of the Italian alps to the medieval seaside towns in Apulia, Italy has endless history, culture, art, and of course, food and beverage to appease any visitor. Italy is also home to several international airports — in Milan, Florence, Rome, Bologna, Naples and beyond — so visiting from the U.S. can be a simple direct flgiht. Whether you’re a first-time solo traveler or about to embark on yet another journey with your favorite travel companion, you, make Italy your next solo travel spot.

Why is Italy good for solo travel? A fantastic public transportation system, a culture that prides itself on hospitality (and plentiful pasta), a safe environment and so much more make Italy ideal for travelers on their own.

How To Meet Other Solo Travelers In Italy

And with Italy being a prime destination for solo travelers, there’s ample opportunity for independent travelers to meet each other. Sites across Italy, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Colosseum, Pompeii, Vatican City, Cinque Terre and far beyond have ample and low-cost group tours and day trips for solo travelers to meet each other and explore Italy’s riches.

Italy is split into 20 regions, most of which are easily accessible by Eurail. An Italy Pass can also help solo travelers explore various regions by train on a multi-day or multi-week fare.

Solo travelers may be happiest in Italy’s big cities, which are also the most popular with tourists: Rome, Milan, Florence, Venice or Bologna. Those who prefer the seaside can opt for the Amalfi Coast to the West or the Puglian region on the East Coast.

Though only about a third of Italians speak and understand English, it’s fairly simple to travel through Italy without learning Italian. Many in the hospitality industry can communicate in English, and Spanish is also a common language for many travelers.

Safety Concerns Traveling Solo In Italy

Like anywhere, Italy has its better and worse neighborhoods for crime. Overall, Italy has a much lower crime rate than the United States, where there are typically five times more reported crimes. For tourists, the biggest risk of traveling solo in Italy may be pickpocketing or petty theft. Protect your valuables in the hotel safe and wear a money belt when traveling to keep credit cards and personal items close. Electronics, like smartphones, should also be protected at all times.

Tips For Traveling Solo In Italy

Before setting off to Italy alone, a few tips: Alert your credit card company of international travel (many businesses in Italy don’t take AmEx, so be sure to have alternate options), share your itinerary with a trusted person back home, and download Google GOOG maps offline so you can navigate in a pinch. Pack a few essentials: A working smartphone and external battery, a European adapter plug, cash (or go to an ATM at the airport in Italy after landing), a card with emergency contact and health information (plus any necessary medication), and a refillable water bottle.

The best part of traveling solo to Italy? All the gelato, pizza and pasta you can eat, and no need to share.

Moscow: City Sightseeing by Car/Bus

Visiting a new city is akin to going on a first date, it is something you will never forget. Many people imagine Moscow as just a bunch of sporadic landmarks: Red Square, the Kremlin, Lenin’s Mausoleum and GUM. There is so much more to this wonderful city than that and even though we only have a few hours, we will do all we can to show you everything we know and love about our capital in one fell swoop. We will take you on a journey through the ages, from centuries ago, right up to the modern day, soaking in the sights of this vast and bustling metropolis. Bright, luxurious and both ancient and modern at the same time, Moscow invites you on a date you’ll never forget!

On our sightseeing bus tour of the city, you will see:

  • The wonderfully historic city centre and its unique museums, magnificent cathedrals, the exquisite Chambers of the Romanov Boyars and of course, the famous towering red brick walls of the Kremlin, The charming beauty of the Alexander Garden awaits the capital's guests - a lush green oasis in the midst of the glass and concrete clad metropolis, basking in the etherial aura emanating from the whitewashed stone walls of the restored Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the world- renowned fairytale onion domes of St. Basil's Cathedral and other impressive monumental buildings such as the library built in Lenin's honour - the Russian State Library - and the State Duma.
  • The Lubyanka KGB headquarters is notorious to members of older generations and although nowadays, the face of the secret police has changed dramatically, the looming enigmatic building on the waterfront maintains its aura of mystery, shrouded in a variety of murky rumours and dark myths. Then, there’s another of Moscow's main attractions - the marvellous Bolshoi Theatre, yew simply cant leave Moscow without taking in its breathtaking architecture. Engrained in the fabric of Russia's cultural heritage, virtuoso performers such as prima ballerina Galina Ulanova, opera singer Feodor Chaliapin and pianist, composer and conductor Sergei Rachmaninoff once stood centre stage of this vaunted institution.
  • The memorial complex on Poklonnaya Hill was constructed in the glory and honour of our heroes who defended our nation in the many crucial battles of the Great Patriotic War (WWII). This is a place that embodies a particularly acute and inextricable link between older ancf younger generations. Moving on to the Moscow International Business Centre, not dubbed ‘Moscow City' for nothing, a true glimpse of the future in the present. This incredible, rather jaw-dropping project in the capital has shown that Moscow has come to accept the age of the skyscraper. Finally, the stunning views from the observation deck at Sparrow Hills will leave professional and amateur photographers alike itching to capture them. How could one resist?

The most beautiful of all the world's cities - lady Moscow invites you out on a date!
