Meet our guide early in the morning for an orientation walk through the winding roman back streets. See the Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. Then head to Vatican City. Visit the St. Peter's Basilica or book a tour of the Vatican Museums. This includes the Sistine Chapel (tickets included) with a licensed tour guide. You'll then have a free evening in Rome.

Now we head to Venice. Join a walking tour where you hear all about Venice and its history. Finish at Piazza San Marco, and see the beautiful Basilica di San Marco, take all the photos you can and enjoy the area.

Enjoy free time in Venice. Treat yourself, relax and have a Spritz next to the canal. Eat some local seafood or have Gondola ride in the Grand Canal! 

 

 

Day Five: Romance In Verona!

We now head to Verona, made famous by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Your tour guide will tell you all you need to know about this incredible city. Don't forget your camera; this area is known for its stunning architecture. 

 

 

Day Six: Head To Milan

Head to Milan to stock up on new outfits for the remainder of your tour! We show you sights such as the beautiful Duomo and the incredible Victorious Emanuel Gallery. We then take you to the nightlife area of Milan; the Navigli.

One of the most famous lakes in Italy is Lake Como. Join us as we enjoy the area and see the amazing cathedral. Then see the best views from the lake on the first ferry to Bellagio, and after exploring the area, catch a ferry to Varenna where you take the train back to Milan.

We promote a youth market 18-39 years old. What does this mean? Does it mean that you have just had your 40th birthday so you won't be welcome if you are a more seasoned traveler? That we are going to card you at the door? No way! 

 

It means that we have a general audience of college students, backpackers, solo travelers, etc... that often fall into this category. The tours are more fast-paced, budget-minded and include activities for travelers to meet and connect with other passengers of the same age from all parts of the world who share the same interests, lifestyles, and travel styles. 

 

We are not strict with the age limit and people older than 39 are always welcome to join our tours as long as you are young in heart, have no walking disabilities and are happy to be with younger people. 

 

Our brand is designed around this unique experience geared towards younger travelers, so only passengers that fit this demographic travel with us.

Don’t panic! The first step is to speak to your bank. All purchases made on our website will appear as purchases being made in Switzerland as our website booking provider is a Swiss-based company, so be sure your bank is aware you will be making Swiss purchases to avoid having your payment flagged as possible fraudulent activity. If you cannot resolve the problem with your bank, you should email info@italyonabudgettours.com immediately so we can proceed with a manual booking.

Let us start by saying that If you want to pay for one of your products but the Credit Card is in a different currency than the currency in which we sell our tours, then you have 2 options. This can be selected on the screen where you enter your credit card details by selecting "view currency conversion options": 

 

Option A

TrekkSoft does the currency conversion to accept the customer's currency, exchanging that into the currency in which we operate our tours.  This is called dynamic currency conversion since we display the actual USD price  (Or whatever currency your card is in) to you at the time of booking and this is the amount which is debited from your card without any further conversions or charges.

 

Option B

The card issuer ( your bank) does this currency conversion and applies a commission and processing fee. So this is when a tour is in EUR for example, and you are charged in EUR even though your credit card account is in USD. So your bank gives you an exchange rate which you will only see on your monthly statement. 

In either case, as we are not a bank, the conversion is not the same as you would see on the likes of xe.com since these are the wholesale currency values, these rates are not available to anyone in reality. 

The retail rates are always higher since there are differences in buying selling rates, and there are commissions and transaction fees when exchanging currencies. Whatever currency you pay, we will receive the amount as displayed in EUR
