Itinerary

Expand All
1 Rome
Sunfilled days, hot summery nights, traveller you've arrived in Rome. On arrival set your eyes upon Rome with heightened love and appreciation for the great country she's nestled in. Get a glimpse of the greats, maybe down some pizza and stroll the streets in la mode of leisure knowing you have all day tomorrow to see the sites. (D) Stay: Hotel Marco Aurelio (or similar)
2 Rome
With a whole day to explore, there's free time to walk amongst the ancient ruins scattered around the city. Visit the famous Colosseum, home to some of the biggest spectacles of powerful Imperial Rome, with its labyrinthine chambers that once housed wild animals and gladiatorial contestants now open to the public to view. Or take to the cute cobbled streets for your fix of Italian food, with lunch specialities like arancini, caprese salad and of course, fresh pasta. (B) Stay: 3-4 Star Standard Hotel
3 Rome to Florence
We leave a little bit of our heart in Rome, but we're not done with Italy just yet, there are two iconic cities to explore before our time in Italy is done. The Duomo Cathedral sits above the city making certain we know we have arrived in Florence. We'll become history buffs on a guided walking tour before we learn the art of leather. Tonight you can choose to begin your Tuscan love affair at an optional dinner - think olives, cured meats, crostini & wine. Later, you could keep it moving back in the city, and experience Florence by night. (B)
4 Florence to Venice
Florence, you've been heavenly, but today we have the floating city on our horizons and we can't wait. Pizza, piazzas … we can't wait. The floating city of gondolas, canals and pretty bridges - what a splendid way to continue our Italian love affair. A guided walking tour and a gondola ride are up for grabs, or you can always choose to get lost on your own and see where the maze takes you. (B) Stay: Michelangelo Hotel Mestre (or similar)
5 Venice to Ljubljana
Venice we love you, but there's more to see and we're ready. Today brings us another country to tick off our bucket list, and although the name is hard to pronounce, it packs some serious punch! Although you might find nods to neighbouring countries within Slovenian culture, a distinct identity has evolved from this melody of influences. After our guided walking tour, explore the bohemian art district of Metelkova Mesto, sit by one of the cities atmospheric watercourses & try all the incredible food on offer. (B) Stay: Ljubljana Resort (or similar)
6 Ljubljana to Plitvice
Bye Ljubljana! We have places to go and people to see, namely, Croatia. And on our way to the Dalmation coast, we have a very important stop with scenery that will blow your mind. Cascading turquoise-hued waters and jewel-like pools await us at Plitvice Lakes. Why this place isn't famous world over as one of the prettiest places in Europe, we have no idea, but for now it's like an extra special secret world. Wander the cute wooden bridges with waterfalls either side and stop for plenty of selfies along the route, as you contemplate the beauty and glory of Mother Nature. (B/D) Stay: Bellevue Hotel Plitvice (or similar)
7 Plitvice to Split
We'll hit the road again for our next stop on the agenda, the harbourside city of Split. It's time to get nautical here on the coast of Croatia. Spend the afternoon exploring her sun-soaked, seafront glory. We'll start you off right with a visit to Old Town Split and Diocletian's Palace for a taste of ancient history amongst the cobbled streets. It would be downright wrong not to indulge in some local tastes tonight too, so opt for a traditional Croat dinner to fuel up on before the night ahead. Later no doubt feeling festive, you could hit the town to explore the city by night! (B) Stay: Hotel Dalmina (or similar)
8 Depart Split
The adventure packed with No Regrets moments has come to an end, oh how much we've seen! With social details swapped and phone numbers exchanged we farewell each other, no doubts with plans for a reunion trip already in full swing. Japan Unrivalled, anyone? (B)
