    Great time length, covered a lot over a few days!

  • Michelle February 2018

    this was a last minute trip. i booked the trip five days before departure. i did not receive confirmation right away so i did not think i was going to be on the tour and almost booked another trip. i received an email two days before(i needed to be on a plane from Canada to Rome) that i was confirmed. this left me one day to prepare, make arrangements and bookflights. a little stressful.
