Does the tour involve a great deal of activity? In order to enjoy your tour to the fullest you should be in good health with good mobility. You should be able to comfortably participate in several hours of activity on most days, including walking at an easy pace, sometimes on uneven terrain, negotiating uphill/downhill streets, climbing stairs and standing.
How much luggage may I bring? Since your tour involves international travel, please check with your carrier in regard to their baggage allowance.
Do I need to purchase trip insurance? We strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation and medical insurance. We'll provide a link for an insurance quote request in your receipt of payment email. If you decline insurance coverage, you'll personally assume full responsibility for any financial loss associated with your travel arrangements, and you could lose your travel investment and/or have to pay more money to correct matters.
Do I need to purchase travel medical insurance? As you prepare for your trip, it's wise to contact your medical insurance provider to determine what, if any, coverage you'll have while traveling abroad. For information on travel medical insurance please visit the U.S. Department of State's travel website.
What if I miss part of the tour? There will be no refund related to the cost of any individual element of the tour, such as an included excursion, which you fail to take.
What if I have dietary restrictions or preferences? Please describe your dietary restrictions or preferences on your booking request form. We'll make every effort to arrange for substitutions whenever possible, though we can't guarantee we'll be able to do so.
Are gratuities included? Our tour prices include all gratuities.
How do I exchange/obtain currency? Italy's currency is the euro. If you wish to obtain euros while you're in the U.S. please contact your financial service provider for details. Once in Italy you can obtain euros through a bank, ATM or exchange office.
How do I use an ATM in Italy? In Italy an automatic teller machine is known as a bancomat. ATMs operate just as they do in the U.S. and will prompt you for your preferred language at the beginning of the transaction.
Can I use my credit/debit card in Italy? Yes. Many establishments will accept major credit/debit cards.
Will I need to bring electrical adapters? The electrical current in Italy is 220 volts and electrical sockets accommodate round prongs instead of the flat ones found in the U.S. Examine any electrical device you plan to bring along for the notation "110/220 volts." If your device reflects that or similar wording then you simply require an adapter allowing you to plug a U.S. plug into a European electrical socket.
Will my cell phone work in Italy? Italy, like most European Union countries, uses the GSM mobile system, meaning that many U.S. handsets will not work there. So, before your travel, it’s a good idea to contact your service provider to learn what options are available to you.
Will I have internet access at the hotels? Each of the tour's hotels offers complimentary Wi-Fi service.
