1. What are some main points I need to know?
This is a trip to an authentic Italian village and it will be active. If you are looking for a luxury and
relaxing vacation, this isn't the trip for you.
You should be in pretty decent shape as the villages are on hills and there is a lot of walking up hills
and stairs (A LOT of stairs). We will hike, meet locals and enjoy an authentic experience.
While some accommodation options may be nicer and modern, some are very authentic. As in all
European countries, rooms and apartments are generally smaller than they are in the States.
2. Why aren't flights included?
Prices vary so much from place to place so I cannot accurately give
you pricing for that and I certainly do not want to overcharge you.
3. What should I pack?
I will be sending along a packing list for participants as well as a bunch of other resources and tips
for traveling here. This will also include the best way to exchange money, information on using a cell
4. Why are there cancellation dates where I can no longer get my money back?
This is due to this being a very small and intimate group so I can give great attention to everyone.
However, please email me as soon as you know you need to cancel and we can discuss it. I also
highly recommend getting Travel Insurance and looking over the details of that insurance to be sure
you're covered for anything you may need. Allianz, John Hancock and IMG are good options.
5. What if I extend my trip on either end?
If you choose to to do this, let me know asap and I will make sure you can book your place for longer
or find a second location for the extra nights. I will also be there before and after so we can meet up
if you'd like and you will have recommendations for things to do on your extra days!
6. Why aren't all meals included?
While we will eat breakfast every day together and have a few dinners and lunches, I also want to
allow you some time to do your own thing a bit of the time. I don't want you to be committed to every
meal with the group, but we could choose to do the additional meals together if we like.
