I’ve created this page so we can stay on the same page regarding our plans for Italy and those who may be interested in going can get important information.

First off, the selected tour is by Insight Tours and it’s called, “Country Roads of Umbria and Tuscany.” You can check it out at Insight Tours’ website. It’s a 9-day tour starting in Rome and ending in Venice. The tentative departure date is Saturday, September 29th. I say tentative because the tour is for 40 people and the company needs a minimum of 20 people to make it a go. The rate for the tour is $2,655 per person for double occupancy if you book by January 11, 2018. That’s the cutoff gate for the discount. Air fare should be about $800. The single rate is $3,430.

I will include some travel tips as well. My first recommendation is Rick Steves travel guide for Italy. It includes tons of information!

In addition, Dan, Ellen, Joe and I are planning to leave a few days early so we can visit a few sites not included in the tour, such as the Colosseum, Naples and Pompeii. The arrangements are not firm yet but all are welcome to join in for all or part. I’ll keep you apprised of any decisions we make on the pre-tour plans.

Finally, Dan and I plan to stay on the Amalfi Coast post-tour. Again, please let us know if you’re interested in participating.

This is a lot to digest so I’ll end here. There will be much more to come!
