Benvenuto to Italy! Congratulations, you’ve arrived in one of earth’s most ancient civilisations. Surrounded by classical ruins, Rome’s historic character blends with modern life packed with designer shops, restaurants, cafes and exciting nightlife. With only 2 days in this grand city, you’ll want to get exploring as soon as possible. Don’t let an opportunity pass to sip an espresso at a streetside café or taste as many gelatos as your sweet tooth will allow. In all the excitement, don’t forget to make it to the welcome meeting around 6pm to meet your group leader and fellow travellers (ask hotel reception on check-in for exact details).

Terms and conditions
Accommodation is on a twin share basis, and single travellers are paired with the same gender
Hotel rooms in Europe can seem rather small by American or Australian standards and often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together. Please also note that often hotels offer shared bathrooms rather than ensuite facilities.
A Single Supplement is bookable on this trip, subject to availability at the time of booking. The price of the single supplement does not include the following nights, where a single room does not form part of the package. In this case you will be matched up with another traveller of the same gender. If a single room becomes available at check-in for these nights, there may be the option for you to upgrade to a single room and pay the surcharge locally for that night
Days 6-7 - La Spezia/Cinque Terre: please also note that due to the small properties used in Europe there is only a limited amount of single supplements available per trip departure. Please contact us if you would like to book a single supplement and enquire about availability
