Is this trip for me?
This trip is designed to be nimble so we can bop in and out of small towns. Once we leave Rome everything we bring will be placed in two 9-passenger vans driven by some of my favorite local drivers. That being said we follow the rule of ONE carry-on per passenger. Pack for five days and we will have laundry abilities at the villa so you can extend your wardrobe to ten days.  

Because we will be walking a considerable amount this trip requires participants be able to walk up to seven miles a day and keep up with a group. Many cities in Italy are built on hills and we will be walking a considerable amount.. 

In an effort to create a more fun environment I book out entire houses, villas or apartments for the most part. If you are not comfortable sharing space with other humans this might not be for you. That being said, each couple will have their own room and with an exception or two their own bathroom, At times beds will need to be pushed together to form one large bed. The rooms are clean and you will be comfortable but we definitely err on the side of adventure over luxury. 

Booking: A deposit of $1000 per person is due to hold your spot.
The deposit can be refunded up until 3 months prior to departure. 
In the case Italy won't let us in due to some pandemic or something, all deposits will be returned and the trip will be canceled. This occurred in 2020 and all deposits were returned.
The remaining balance is due one month prior to the beginning of the trip August 24, 2022.
