What people say about this tour 

" Buongiorno Itallia "

Sasa and Alex were the best guides!! They were so knowledgable and funny and we loved spending the few days on the tour with them. Everything was so well done and professional. We got to see so much in a short time and for a very good price. This was the best tour we found in Italy and Sasa and Alex made it even better! The hostel they set us up in was one of the nicest I've ever stayed in. The transportation with either the bus or the train was very efficient, nice, and fun!!

  • The primary means of transportation of this trip is by train. Trains are the fastest way to cross long distances, allowing you to avoid traffic jams and arrive right into the city centre. Please note that you'll have to carry your own luggage on and off the train, so make sure it doesn’t exceed in weight and size.
  • Be prepared to walk a lot as we believe that there is no better way to explore a new city than on foot. 
  • If you choose the multi share room, you will share a room with other travellers not necessarely taking part of the tour. This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can.
