Tour Overview

TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader. Italy. Just thinking about this country makes your mouth water, your stomach rumble and your jeans feel tighter. Gastronomic delights aside, this place has got history by the bucket load, landscapes that look like they’ve been photoshopped, cities so romantic even the biggest cynics will turn into Julia Roberts from Eat, Pray, Love, and more duomos, churches and piazzas than you can remember. So pack your fat pants, this trip is Italy done right.

Highlights

  • Wine tasting and lunch on the slopes of Mt Vesuvius

  • Walking tour of Siena with local guide

  • Visit Pisa and see the famous Leaning Tower

  • Visit the picturesque villages of the Cinque Terre

  • Gondola ride down the Grand Canal

icon Day 1 : Rome (Italy)
Location:

  Rome


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Dinner


Leave the everyday behind and uncover extraordinary. This is your ultimate Italian adventure. We’ll rendezvous with the gang in bella Roma before embarking on a walking tour to end all walking tours with our local Trip Leader. We’re talking a solid few hours of non-stop sights, off-the-tourist-trail hidden gems and a run-down of almost 3000 years of history. Pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain, (don’t) sit on the Spanish Steps and wind things up under the shadow of the mighty Colosseum. Epic doesn’t even cut it. Then, tuck into a drool-worthy Italian meal at tonight’s dinner with your new-found mates. Your pants are elasticated, right?

icon Day 2 : Rome, including Vatican City
Location:

  Rome, Vatican City


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


You’ve got 24 hours to live out all your Roman Holiday fantasies. First: count your blessings on an included tour of Vatican City with an expert local guide. Then: get out there and do your own, spontaneous, this-is-what-I-came-for thing. Need some local tips? We’ve got your back. Go behind-the-scenes of a local gelateria to uncover exactly what makes this stuff so dang good. Or hike up Capitoline Hill for awesome views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Battle the lunchtime rush for a slice at Pizzarium Bonci. Hunt down the Mouth of Truth. Or simply do as the locals do and indulge in a little dolce far niente (delicious idleness) at a local cafe. You’re in Disneyland for foodies, so finding dinner tonight is gonna to be a breeze. Thought you’d tried all the gelato flavours? Head to Fatamorgana – and think again.

icon Day 3 : Rome – Pompeii – Sorrento
Location:

  Rome, Pompei, Sorrento


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Roll out Topdeckers! We’re kicking things off with a traditional lunch and wine tasting (obvs) with the gang on the slopes of Mt Vesuvius. This is livin’. Then, we’ll make a pit stop at one of the most famous ancient cities in the world: Pompeii. Abruptly buried by a volcanic eruption one evening in 79 AD, this incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site is an ancient-history-buff’s wet dream. Get the run around with an expert on an optional guided tour – ticking off ancient forums, colourful preserved artworks and the Stone Phalluses of Pompeii (ask your guide, we dare you). Later, we’ll roll down the glittering Amalfi Coast to Sorrento. Get your bearings, feast at a local restaurant with the gang, then kick back and soak up the atmosphere. Yep, you’re finally here.

icon Day 4 : Sorrento
Location:

  Sorrento


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Who said group tours have no free time? Here’s 24 hours to do whatever YOU want. Go get it. Ferry over to the gob-smackingly beautiful Isle of Capri. Organise a boat tour to see the famous bluer-than-blue Blue Grotto. Jump on a local bus and explore picturesque Positano. Take in alllll the views from Villa Comunale Park. Or simply pull up a sunbed and soak up some rays. Later, you can channel your inner-Italian-nonna at an optional cooking class – tucking into your drool-worthy creations for dinner. It’s a tough life. Fact: lemons are kind of a big deal here – so make sure you sample some limoncello or lemon gelato before the day is done.

icon Day 5 : Sorrento – Assisi
Location:

  Sorrento, Assisi


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Down your cappuccino. Pick up a lemon-themed souvenir for mum. And wave goodbye to the coast (for now). Up next? The picture-perfect hilltop town of Assisi. Located in Umbria (aka central Italy) – this place is all about art, culture and I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E natural scenery. Get the run around St Francis Basilica frescoes, Rocca Maggiore Castle, Basilica di Santa Chiara and Piazza del Comune with a local guide – before splitting off to explore the 14th-century streets solo. Check out Temple of Minerva. Wander around Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo. Then head to a local wine bar to sample a drop (or two) of the good stuff. Dinner tonight is on us. Top tip: try anything with truffles – the region is famous for them.

icon Day 6 : Assisi – Siena – Florence
Location:

  Assisi, Siena, Florence


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Been dreaming of sun-soaked, vineyard-covered Tuscan hills? You’re in luck – we’re heading to the capital of Tuscany today. But first: the romantic AF city of Siena – rich in Renaissance architecture, sporting some spesh churches and home to Europe’s greatest medieval square (where the famous Palio horse race is run). Get the full tour with a local guide, then hunt down a local for lunch. Top tip: try this area’s take on pasta called pici. Then? Prepare to make your food baby sing (even louder) as we roll into Florence. Did someone say karaoke? If you’re feeling it, join the gang in a battle of the classics at the bar later.

icon Day 7 : Florence
Location:

  Florence


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Florence has more stories than Bilbo Baggins, more culture than a London hipster, AND it gave the world gelato (praise be). We’ll get the lay of the land on an in-depth walking tour with a local guide. Then: take your new-found knowledge and hit the streets solo. Uffizi Gallery. Ponte Vecchio. Piazza della Signoria. The Duomo. You can’t see it all, but you sure as hell can try! Been dreaming of rolling Tuscan hills? Head out into the vine-laden Chianti region for an optional lunch and wine tasting at a local winery. Thank us later. Tonight, catch the epic sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo or hunt down a gelateria for a scoop (or two) of the good stuff – we mentioned it was invented here, right?

icon Day 8 : Florence – Lucca and Pisa – La Spezia
Location:

  Florence, Lucca, Pisa, La Spezia


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Another day, another gorgeous Tuscan city. Get that gelato to take-away – we’re making tracks to the walled city of Lucca. This place is the definition of “hidden gem” and you’ll get plenty of free time to discover why. Then: get your creative juices flowing for THAT photo at Pisa before we hit up La Spezia (aka the gateway to Cinque Terre) later. Tonight, dinner is on us – start carb-loading, you’re gonna need it for tomorrow’s adventuring.

icon Day 9 : La Spezia, including Cinque Terre
Location:

  La Spezia, Cinque Terre


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


The five cliff-side villages of Cinque Terre didn't end up on the World Heritage list for nothing. And each has a vibe of its own. Completely void of corporate development and full of quirks, this is a place where la dolce vita is not so much encouraged as enforced. And you’ve got a full free day to embrace it all. Need some suggestions on how to make the most of your free time? Catch the train to Riomaggiore for colourful postcard-perfect marinas – then down an espresso and hike to Manarola for a quick dip off the rocks. Or trek to the hilltop village of Corniglia for pizza, then work off said pizza with a hike down to Vernazza – check out the church, grab a gelato and train to Monterosso. Sunbake, swim, spritz, watch the sunset, have more spritz. Then head back to La Spezia when you’re done. This is livin’. *Note: is walking the best option for you? If not, save us the headache and just get on the train. You know who you are.

icon Day 10 : La Spezia – Lake Garda – Venice
Location:

  La Spezia, Lake Garda, Venice


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Time to get cruisie – we’re gonna spend the morning ferrying on the surface of picture-perfect Lake Garda (aka Italy’s largest lake). Float through the picturesque landscape of Punta San Vigilio while getting low-down on the cultural heritage of Garda’s fairytale islands and picture-perfect villages. We'll park up later in Venice – home to over 400 bridges and birthplace of Vivaldi. After dinner with the gang, this beautiful sinking city is yours for the taking. Go get it.

icon Day 11 : Venice
Location:

  Venice


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Centuries-old architecture. Inventive cuisine. And a bucket load of culture. Venice is just begging to be explored. Check out the who's who of Venice's usual suspects on a walking tour – before rounding things off with a gondola ride down the Grand Canal. And then? The rest is up to you. Insider tip: spend some time seeking out the epic Libreria Acqua Alta bookshop or head off the tourist trail with a trip to Giudecca Island. Go wandering. Chat to the locals. Get lost in the maze of canals and piazzas. Watch the sun go down with a refreshing spritz in hand. That’s what makes the memories.

icon Day 12 : Venice – Orvieto – Rome
Location:

  Venice, Orvieto, Rome


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Southward and downward with a pit stop at the hilltop town of Orvieto – to see the grand cathedral and dig into a wild boar panini (unless you’re vegetarian). Then: we’ll hit the road back to la bella Roma. End your day in true Italian fashion: in a carb-induced coma at a local trattoria. This is our last dinner with the gang, so you’d better give this incredible trip the send-off it deserves!

icon Day 13 : Rome
Location:

  Rome


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


You can’t be serious, it’s over? Time to say our goodbyes (no crying). But the adventure doesn’t have to end here – we hear Greece is lovely this time of year...

I went on a Topdeck Bravo Italia trip it was wonderful.

If it wasn’t for their horrible customer service this year than I would’ve gave them 5.

They don’t care about you book with another company.

WhenI tried to book another trip at a great rate I found online from Stride Travel.

Stride Travel is a reputable website that is new to partnering up with Topdeck.

However, I believe that Topdeck didn't want to give me the better rate so they made up all these lies about me on why they couldn't book me.

It's either they have something against Americans or they are just money hungry scam artists.

Apparently the tour was selling fast at their normal higher rate according to their reps.

Therefore, I guess they didn’t want to bother with me.

Total false advertisement.

I waited 4 to 5 days for someone to respond to my reservation request only to get an excuse like answer with no explanation.

1 Star for Topdeck for this issue less....

India

What do you love most about Northern India?

"From deserts and mountain ranges to ancient forts and step wells - Northern India is incredibly diverse. "

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"The ancient monuments are wonders of architecture and colour. You'll feel like you're in Asia, the Middle East and even Europe at times. "

Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

@lizaliddy's Top Tips

"Don't be afraid to get amongst it! India is so fun and energetic. There's always a lot going on - which can be overwhelming. But if you're open to it, it can be a really cool experience. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Northern India

"Finding hidden little gems, like the Bahubali Hills in Udaipur. An insider's guide is the best help when it comes to unique experiences and (most importantly) yummy food!"

Must pack items for Northern India

"A local (or international) SIM card. As the most populated country on the planet, India is BUSY. It can be confusing to get around, so having access to maps whenever you need them is a godsend. "

"Wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. You'll spend a lot of time walking so wear comfortable shoes. Bring bug repellant and sunscreen!"

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
