Overview

Take a walking tour past the ruins of the Amphitheater, Temple of Apollo and Basilica, and hear how the eruption of Mount Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii, burying it under tons of ash.

Travel to Europe often requires an overnight flight. Please arrange for flights to arrive on or before Day 1.

  1. Embrace excess on this jaunt through the highlights of Italy, which begins in Rome. On arrival to Rome Fiumicino Airport transfers will operate at 9:30 am, 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Guests arriving later should make their own way to the hotel. Spend the day soaking up its vibrant atmosphere before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travelers at a Welcome Reception. We enjoy a leisurely orientation through the city this evening, crossing the Tiber into Ancient Rome before our journey through Italy begins.

    meal(s):Welcome Reception
    hotel:Villafranca
  2. Explore the Vatican City this morning with a Local Specialist who will reveal all the highlights of St. Peter's Basilica. We venture into Ancient Rome next, to admire where exhilarating chariot races were once held, and pay a visit to the imposing Colosseum. Enjoy some free time this afternoon to explore on your own. From Roman ruins to Renaissance Palazzi—Rome has it all.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
  3. Discover why the Italians say 'it is sweet doing nothing,' spending your day watching Rome's beautiful people embrace life lived to its fullest in the exquisite city. Delve into its treasures spanning millennia—the museums, churches, gardens and architecture that remain as enduring symbols of a powerful city. Or perhaps consider an Optional Experience to Tivoli, site of the magnificent Villa d'Este Gardens.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
  4. 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 a city frozen in time. Join a Small Group Sightseeing tour through the excavations of Pompeii 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.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner with Wine
    hotel:San Pietro/Pietra di Luna
  5. Indulge in a full free day at leisure. Consider joining an Optional Experience along the Amalfi Coast to the beautiful clifftop seaside village of Positano, a true painter's paradise. You could also choose to soak up the extraordinary beauty of the clifftop village of Ravello which has long inspired musicians, writers and artists. Smell the fresh scents of lemons as you stroll along cliffside terraces and indulge in the picture-perfect setting. After a day of sightseeing, spend a relaxing evening sipping limoncello and watching the Salerno sky light up in glorious pinks, yellows and blues.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
  6. This morning, we have some free time to stroll around the medieval town of Amalfi and see its spectacular 11th-century Romanesque Cathedral of Sant'Andrea and Campanile. Later, 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.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
  7. From Amalfi, we travel north through the rolling green and golden landscape of Umbria into scenic Tuscany before arriving in the Renaissance city of Florence. You'll have a free evening to amble along the Arno River, admire the famous city skyline at night from Piazzale Michelangelo, or indulge in the finest antipasti in town.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
    hotel: Grand Mediterraneo
  8. Delve into the history of a city renowned for its art, architecture and cultural treasures. Join your Local Specialist for a city sightseeing tour, including views of the exquisite marble Duomo and Baptistery. Wander through the Piazza della Signoria, the center 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. Later, connect with locals over a Be My Guest dinner at a castle set within a celebrated wine and olive oil estate.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner with Wine
  9. A leisurely start to your day could see you visit the Accademia Gallery in Florence to see Michelangelo's David. Continue north, bound for Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic and our home for the next two nights.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
    hotel:Principe/Amadeus
  10. Glide through the bustling canals of Venice on board a private launch. Dive into culture, witnessing first-hand the centuries-old craft of glassmaking on the island of Giudecca, before arriving at the gateway to the city, St. Mark's Square. Our love affair with Venice continues as we view St. Mark's Basilica, Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sighs, before enjoying a Farewell Dinner with our Travel Director and newfound friends to toast to the delicious flavors of Italy.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Farewell Dinner
  11. For now our encounter with an extraordinary destination has come to an end. Return transfers will arrive at Venice’s Marco Polo Airport at 8 am and 9:30 am. Conditions apply.

Vacation:
Service rating : 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.
Friday, September 28, 2018
Vacation : 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.

Vacation : 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.

Vacation : When adding in all the optional tours available the tour got pricey.

  • U.S. citizens traveling to Italy must have a current passport that is valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering Italy.

  • The currency in Italy is the Euro (€). While it’s a good idea to bring some euros for when you first arrive in Italy, you’ll usually find a better exchange rate when you arrive in your destination.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks in Italy. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • While Italy is most famous for pizza and pasta, few travelers are aware of just how varied the country’s culinary offering actually are. In fact, each of the 20 regions has its own distinctive cuisine. Traditionally, lunch (pranzo) is the most substantial meal of the day. A full meal consists of antipasto (starter), a primo piatto (pasta, rice or soup), a secondo piatto (meat or fish) with a side, or contorno (vegetable or salad), then frutta (fresh fruit). Finish with espresso and maybe a limoncello or grappa.  Wine is usually served with the meal, accompanied by mineral water. Tap water is safe to drink, but not always tasty. We recommend you buy bottled mineral water. ‘Acqua non potabile’ means the water is not safe to drink.  Find out about some local specialties to try in Italy’s top destinations below.

    Florence

    Food in Florence is simple and humble, and relies on the fresh ingredients of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Many of the local recipes have evolved from peasant dishes to international favorites. Bread is an important staple in Florentine cooking, and is featured in everything from antipasti (appetizers) such as bruschetta to traditional main dishes. Panzanella is a popular summer salad prepared with day old crusty bread and tomatoes.  Papa al pomodoro is a delicious soup made with bread, tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and herbs.  You’ll also find a variety of dishes featuring white beans, including the hearty ribollita soup.  But the flagship of Florentine cuisine remains the famous bistecca alla fiorentina (T-bone steak).  For a sweet finish, meals are topped off with traditional cantuccini (almond cookies) and the local vin santo dessert wine.

    Venice

    A visit to Venice offers an opportunity to discover a variety of truly unique gastronomic traditions.  Venetians have a long-standing tradition of eating cicchetti, small bites similar to Spanish tapas. You can enjoy a variety of these before lunch or dinner, paired with a glass of local wine at restaurants and bars around town. Other common dishes include polenta, risotto with peas, salted cod, sardines, and local bigoli pasta.  

    Rome

    Roman cuisine is deeply rooted in the past. Despite the city’s imperial history, the food in Rome and the surrounding Lazio region is anything but refined.  Humble pasta dishes such as carbonara, amatriciana, aglio e olio (garlic and olive oil) and cacio e peppe (pecorino cheese and pepper) are local favorites served in trattorias around town. Other foods to try in Rome include pizza, a variety of fritti (fritters) made with everything from salted cod to zucchini flours, stewed oxtail, suppli (rice and Bolognese sauce croquettes) and sharp pecorino cheese. For dessert, try crostata di ricotta (Italian cheesecake) or zeppole (donuts).

  • In Italy, the weather changes very quickly, with temperatures varying from morning to night. We suggest bringing a variety of lightweight clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. Keep in mind that your shoulders and knees should be covered while visiting religious sites. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • At bars and restaurants, tipping is less common or generous as in the U.S. When dining out, it’s appropriate, although not required, to leave an extra euro or two for your waiter.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity. We recommend €3.00 per person/per day for your driver and €5.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 euros per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
