Consider Italy your next destination! This video shows a sneak peek into Rome... The Italian peninsula has witnessed the rise and fall of countless empires, from prehistory to the Etruscans to the mighty Roman Empire. All roads lead to Rome, as the saying goes, and in the ancient world, it was a fact. Visitors can now follow the footsteps of Julius Caesar in the Forum Romanum, walk along the famous Appian Way, and gaze up at the oculus in the Pantheon. Rome’s legendary status doesn’t end in ancient times; you’ll find the grandest expression of the Baroque era in Trevi Fountain, and a colossal example of 20th century neoclassicism in the Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II. The Italian Renaissance emerged in Florence and brought about more than 300 years of cultural transformation and artistic achievement across Europe. The Most Serene Republic of Venice enjoyed nearly a millennium of wealth and prosperity, all the while cultivating the laissez-faire culture of a busy port city. Between … [Read more...] about Roman Holiday

Any U.S. citizen who travels outside North America needs to have a passport. This is your international I.D. and you can’t leave home without it! Please note that many countries will deny entry to those whose passports will expire within six months after departing the USA. That means that even if your passport is valid now and during your trip, you still need to obtain a new passport. Non-U.S. citizens may need to obtain visas even if they already have a valid passport. A visa is special permission to travel to your destination country (not a credit card, although those are helpful too!). It is the sole responsibility of the participant to determine if a visa(s) is required for your tour. For more passport & visa information and office locations visit https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en.html When traveling with us, once you have your passport, fill out this form and send to us NO LATER than 60 days before … [Read more...] about What About Passports & Visas?
