  4. Day 4 Explore the Ruins of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast

    Today we pay homage to the thousands of brave souls whose final resting place is the Commonwealth War Cemetery in Cassino. View the 6th-century Abbey that was destroyed during World War II, before venturing south to Pompeii, a city frozen in time. Join a Small Group Sightseeing tour through the excavations that yield the tragic story of a once vibrant city engulfed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Wander down the stone avenues past such sights as the Forum and Temple of Apollo. We arrive later at our hotel on the iconic Mediterranean Amalfi Coast where we'll dine tonight.

    meals Breakfast, Dinner

    Indulge in a full free day at leisure. Consider joining an Optional Experience along the Amalfi Coast to the beautiful seaside village of Positano, a true painter's paradise. You could also choose to soak up the extraordinary beauty of the village of Ravello which has long inspired musicians, writers and artists. Smell the fresh scents of lemons as you relax in this picture-perfect setting. After a day of sightseeing, spend a relaxing evening sipping limoncello and watching the Mediterranean sky light up in glorious pinks, yellows and blues.

    meals Breakfast
  6. Day 6 Experience the Isle of Capri

    This morning, we set sail to the glamorous island of Capri, ascending to Capri town by funicular for a guided walking tour with a Local Specialist who will share views of the piazzetta, the heart and soul of this beautiful town. Later, we return to the mainland and have some free time to stroll around the medieval town of Amalfi and see its 10th-century Romanesque Cathedral of Sant'Andrea and Campanile.

    meals Breakfast
  7. Day 7 Journey to Florence

    From the Amalfi Coast, we travel north through the rolling green and golden landscape of Umbria into scenic Tuscany before arriving in the Renaissance city of Florence.

Wander through the Piazza della Signoria, the centre of Florentine political life since the 14th century with its prominent Palazzo Vecchio. Learn about the quality and workmanship of two of this city's historic industries at demonstrations of Florentine leathercraft and 18-carat gold. During your unforgettable MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience later, you’ll Connect With Locals at the Trebbio Castle over an exclusive Be My Guest dinner with your warm hosts, the Baj-Macario family. It’s hard to believe that a vicious plot was hatched against the backdrop of these tranquil Tuscan vineyards and olive groves, but you’ll learn all about it as well as how your visit is helping the family to run the estate in harmony with nature.

Watch how master craftsmen use the same techniques their forefathers did to shape the delicate glassworks for which Venice has become justifiably famous, perhaps choosing to buy a souvenir of your own. Inspired by the artistry you’ve just witnessed, you’ll soak up the pageantry and elegance of Venice on your own terms before enjoying a Farewell Dinner with our Travel Director and newfound friends to toast to the delicious flavours of Italy.

While we had a good time, and enjoyed it overall, we were very disappointed in all of the "optional experiences" - not the experiences themselves, but the fact that they were add-ons that should have been included in the first place. Factor in those packages and build them into the price, even if it means the overall price would be slightly greater. And as to whether we would recommend GET, we now realize the trip was really a Trafalgar trip, and GET is merely a subcontractor, which means you make a profit on top of whatever the Trafalgar deal was. I would need convincing that a GET deal was less than Trafalgar's deal.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We appreciate your feedback very much. All of trips are designed to have a balance of included sightseeing and free time or Optional Experiences. This is standard with most Tour Companies unless you pay a much higher overall price for your trip that includes these experiences. GET is not a subcontractor for Trafalgar. We are owned by the same company and our pricing is the same. Although by booking with us and being an AARP member, you did receive an additional discount that you would not have received if booking with Trafalgar directly. So happy that you enjoyed yourself on the trip overall.

As noted, my overall consideration of the value of this purchase was marred by the excessive amount of add-ons, like selling someone a car without the tires. "Got a great deal on the car, but if I want to drive it, " you'll need to buy some tires." However, I must add that our tour director, Antonio Abbruzzese, was incredibly helpful, informative, accommodating, and was a major factor in creating a wonderful enjoyable trip.

Response from Grand European Travel:
Thanks for sharing your experience! We'll pass your comments on to our Travel Specialist, they'll be happy to hear they helped make your trip as hassle-free as possible. We'll pass on your comments concerning timing to the Operations team. Happy travels!

Loved the itinerary. Did not like that our day in Florance was a Monday, when all the museums are closed. Would have preferred one less day on the Amalfi Coast to be able to visit the Florance museums.

Overall the experience was great, the only negative I would have is with the level of the tour described as "Leisurely". It was a fast paste tour that covered a lot of ground.
Vacation
When adding in all the optional tours available the tour got pricey.
