ITINERARY

IS THIS TRIP FOR YOU?

  • The primary means of transportation on this trip is by train. Train travel in Italy is a great way to travel long distances and arrives conveniently in the city centre.

  • You will need to be able to manage your own bag and lift it into the racks yourself. Please ensure you pack lightly. You will need to negotiate stairs with your bag as a lot of stations do not have lifts.

  • Autumn is a beautiful time of year to travel. Even though the weather is cool, the autumn colours are gorgeous and there are fewer crowds.

  • The weather will be cool, ranging between 16°C and 7°C. We suggest you dress in layers to stay warm and a pack a wet weather jacket. carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability for that season.

  • Accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will be paired with another traveller. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please indicate your preference on your booking form.

  • Be aware that accommodation in Europe does not always have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together. Most of the time it is possible to separate them. But don't be shocked if there is little space.

REVIEWS FOR TRAVEL CHARM

I decided to go on the Painting in Italy Trip with Travel Charm because I had never been to Europe and thought it would be a great opportunity to see a place I had always dreamed of with like-minded people who enjoyed art, history, and nature as much as me.

I would recommend this trip to my friends and colleagues because it is not a rushed trip. There was plenty of time to relax and explore each place and embrace their way of life.

The best thing I liked about the Painting in Italy trip was staying in a place for six days or more to fully experience that area.

The accommodation was good and in a great position to access the points of interest nearby.

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the outstanding service and hard work you have put into co=ordinating our trip to New York.

You get a definite "wow" from me.

Your passion for providing a unique experience certainly comes through as well as incorporating my specific interests.

All my questions were answered in a timely manner and you checked in with me frequently to make sure I didn't have any concerns.

I am grateful for all your help. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your business to my friends.
