ITINERARY

  • Day 1
    Meet at Hotel in Rome
    Welcome Happy Hour
    Welcome to the historic city of Rome! You’ll meet your Trova squad at the hotel for a welcome happy hour and travel tips. Get ready to explore the many alluring historical landmarks, meanwhile enjoying delizioso Italian cuisine. We hope that you like pasta! Romans can’t live without it, and neither will you. We recommend amatriciana, carbonara, cacio e pepe and gricia. You may even fall asleep dreaming about savory pancetta or guanciale - pig's cheek – only to wake up to do it all over again day 2!
  • Day 2
    Workshop with Glo
    How To Be A Better Traveler
    Many people travel to foreign countries expecting locals to cater to them and bow at their feet, when in reality, we need to be approaching our trips with a guest mentality. Just as you wouldn't walk into a stranger's home and kick up your feet on the couch and act like it's your property, the same should apply for travel. Wander the streets of Rome with Glo and learn the necessary travel tips and tricks to live like a local when abroad.
  • Day 3
    Tour of Rome
    Time to delve into the sights. We’ll take you on a tour of the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain and Colosseum; where celebrations, sporting events and blood was once shed. Along the way your ambassador will guide you to the local spots so you can fuel up on eats like pizza ciliegina – a white pizza (no tomato sauce) drizzled with cherry tomatoes, rocket salad, baked olives, parmesan and, of course, lots of mozzarella cheese.
  • Day 4
    Travel Day
    Train to Florence
    Time to make some moves! After a quick breakfast, we’re headed to Florence, also known as Firenze, by Train. In under 2 hours you’ll arrive at the beautiful capital of Tuscany. Famous for its romantic and enchanting culture, art, and architecture. It’s up to you how you’d like to spend your evening, and as always, feel free to lean on us for suggestions.
  • Day 5
    Tour of Florence
    Florence has so much to see! And we’ll show you the best of it by taking you on a tour of the Accademia Gallery, Uffizi Gallery, and the Duomo. Didn’t get enough sightseeing? Perhaps rent a car for the evening and visit the neighboring medieval villages. Both Siena and San Gimignano are only an hour away. Make a pit stop at the Leaning Tower of Pisa if you’ve got the gas for it!
  • Day 6
    Tuscan Vespa Tour with Glo
    Drive your own vintage Vespa through scenic Tuscany with Glo. You'll explore the beautiful countryside and weave through rolling hills bursting with Chianti grapes. Luckily, Italians also drive on the right side of the road..
  • Day 7
    Travel Day
    Bus to Sorrento
    A comfortable charter bus will pick us up bright and early to make our way to Sorrento on the beautiful Amalfi Coast. And when life gives you lemons, drink limoncello! Sorrento has an abundance of them so you’ll get your fix. It may suite you to spend the evening relaxing by the water, watching the sunset, and enjoying the serenity that this beautiful region has to offer. The world is your oyster and we won’t stop you from shucking it!
  • Day 8
    Workshop with Glo
    How to Maximize Your Photography While Traveling
    Together, we’ll explore the iconic shorelines of the Amalfi Coast while learning new photography skills with Glo. Surrounded by colorful cascading buildings trickling down to the clear blue sea, you’ll find it difficult not to capture unforgettable content.
  • Day 9
    Personalized Experience
    i.e. Capri Boat Tour
    It’s your last full day to explore! Take delight in the little wonders of Sorrento by taking a trip to Italy’s lost city, Pompeii, or hitch a ride by boat to Capri. Discover the Blue Grotto, and find the magical sunlight that seeps through the cave waters. Prefer to do something else? Tell us and we’ll point you in the right direction.
