Is this trip right for you?

• There are some long travel days on this itinerary, particularly from Matera to Sorrento (5 hours). There will be stops to break up these journeys. Its also a great time to relax and get to know your fellow travellers.

• We use private transport for this trip, as locations are time-consuming to reach via public transport. We still recommend that you pack lightly, so you can carry your luggage up and down hotel stairs, but you are welcome to use your preferred luggage style (backpack or suitcase).

• This trip departs from Rome to Avetrana on the morning of Day 3. If you wish to spend more time exploring this city, we recommend staying additional time in Rome either before or after your trip. We can help you book additional accommodation at our starting point hotel.

• This trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well rounded experience of Italy's cuisine. While we endeavour to cater for specific dietary requirements, some meals and food activities are set in advance and may be difficult to adjust. Italian food often has a focus on cheese and meat and can be also challenging for severe gluten intolerances. If you have dietary requirements , simply contact your agent at the time of booking for further information on how this may impact on your ability to take part in included activities and meals. Come with an open mind and open mouth, and you won’t be disappointed!

• Summer temperatures can be extreme in many of the regions visited (up to 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Many hotel rooms in Europe are not equipped with air-conditioning. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
