Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1: Rome
Location: Rome

Welcome to Italy! We’re starting in the Capital - Rome - because where would be better to start when you’re exploring the south of this incredible country? Hop off the plane and make your way into the centre of the buzzing city - if it’s your first time in Italy you’re in for a real treat! Spend the day exploring - check out the stunning Vatican City if you fancy ticking off two countries in one day! Now THAT would be an epic way to start the 8 days! Swat up on your Italian ready for the welcome meal this evening with the group! We’ll head over to the Trastevere neighbourhood which just might be the coolest, most colourful district in Rome! We LOVE it there so we can’t wait to show you around on your first evening - and grab a well-deserved Aperol too of course!

Day 2: Rome
Location: Rome
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Today we are going to get our bearings in Rome and tick off some of the bucket list sights in the city! We’ll start with a walking tour because there’s no better way to explore than by foot! We’ll see the iconic Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Piazza Venezia & the Pantheon - your cameras better be charged cause there's so many photo opportunities today. After a busy morning, we’ll head over to the main event…The Colosseum! Here we’ll have a tour and learn about the history and how they built such an amazing structure all those years ago. Our tickets will also include entrance to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill which are definitely worth a visit but we won’t judge you if you want to find the closest place to have an ice-cold beer… After a busy day, tonight, we will have a chilled evening before grabbing some dinner!

Day 3: Rome/Naples
Location: Rome
Meals Included: BREAKFAST, DINNER

Are you ready for gooood food? Well, that’s great because we are headed to the food capital of the south! Our mouths are watering already. Once we arrive we’re headed straight for a local food walking tour! We’ll try some typical Neapolitan foods like Mozzarella, deep-fried pizza, pasta, babà, limoncello and more - get ready for a taste sensation like no other. We’ll spend the evening however you’d like, Naples has a great nightlife but if you fancy a chilled bar the city has plenty of those too - it’s your time - spend it how you’d like.

TRANSPORT: MORNING Train from Rome to Naples

Day 4: Naples
Location: Naples
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

We’re in for an amazing, historical day today! One of the must-visit spots in Italy is Pompeii which is where we are headed today. We are located perfectly so today’s journey to the site won’t take long! This ancient city *cue Cunk on Earth voice* on the outskirts of Naples was buried under metres of ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D and what remains is an amazing insight into the lives of those that once lived there. Luckily we will have the whole day to explore and learn about Pompeii - it’s a day you’ll never forget!

Day 5: Naples/Sorrento
Location: Naples
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Now we have seen Pompeii it would be rude not to discover more about this period. Today we are hiking Mount Vesuvius - yeah baby! It’ll only take us about half an hour to climb up to the top and once we are at the top you’ll have great views over Naples and the stunning sea, endless photo opportunities and of course a cafe for some refreshments too. Then we are off to Herculaneum which is another site affected by the volcanic eruption. It is a lesser-known spot to visit but the preservation here is even more detailed and intimate making it a must-visit location before we travel down to the next spot…Sorrento!! Once we arrive we’ll have a wander around this incredible town overlooking the Bay of Naples, stop for a drink to watch the sunset and then head out for dinner.

TRANSPORT: Private transfer - Naples to Sorrento

Day 6: Sorrento
Location: Sorrento
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

The early bird catches the worm so we’re headed out early today to do the Path of the Gods Hike. The earlier the better for today's hike, it’ll be cooler and quieter (aka less chance of being photobombed!) The hike will take around 4 hours but we'll take our time and stop lots for photos and snacks along the way. There’ll be amazing views and even a cute little lemon slushy stop to keep us cool! At the end of the hike, we’ll arrive at Positano where we will relax, grab some lunch and explore a little bit before getting a bus back to Sorrento! It’s been a big day of exploring by foot so this will be a nice relaxing drive back! It’ll also be the perfect time to go through all your photos from the hike today and do a cheeky insta post.

Day 7: Sorrento
Location: Sorrento
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

It’s our final full day on tour - tears all around! Today’s another early start as we hop on the ferry in the morning which takes around an hour. Once we arrive in Capri we’ll be free to roam as we wish! To get up to the piazza and upper town we can walk, jump on board the funicular or catch a bus. We’ll all get the chairlift up to the highest point of the island to make the most of the incredible views and we’ll also explore the Giardini di Augusto, a beautiful botanical garden. It is the perfect way to spend our penultimate day. In the evening we’ll have our final dinner as a group whilst drinking Aperols and eating tiramisu as the sun goes down. What an incredible trip it has been.

Day 8: Sorrento
Location: Sorrento
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

It’s time to say Ciao. Today is a chilled check out and if we’re honest we’re not quite ready to say goodbye. If you’re planning on travelling more of Europe your Travel Ninja is on hand with recommendations and to help with onward travel plans. It’s been an amazing 8 days of exploring in Italy. We have eaten like kings, seen the most breathtaking views and had THE most fun! We’ve created memories to last a lifetime and taken enough pics to spam your Instagram for the next 12 months. You’re part of the TruFam now and that’s for life so it’s not goodbye it’s see you later! Or should we say…Pasta la vista baby!

Words can not describe how...

10-Dec-2023

Words can not describe how amazing this trip was! Especially our tour guide Kevin, he is a wonderful person and made the trip even better than I could have hoped for! The best part was i decided to share this experience with my 73 year old dad, and Kevin and the rest of the group were wounderful with him, nothing was ever a problem and if there was they would go out of their way to make sure he shared the same experience as the rest of us. Especially very step stair, my heart would be in my mouth but by day two they all had a system where they would all grab an arm each and someone would stand in front just in case he slipped, it was so heartwarming to see 🥺 One morning Kevin even went out of his way to take dad on a walking tour of Hanoi but instead of walking, dad was carried on a push bike so that he didn’t miss out and then he later came to collect us and took us out on the same tour on foot. He made me and my dad feel like we weren’t a burden or anything! He was utterly amazing and I’m so thankful he was our tour guide. Thank you Kevin for being such an amazing person and going above and beyond for us. I recommend this tour to anyone! And don’t be afraid to take your mum or dad because I promise you’ll be in safe hands with Kevin 🥰 lots of love Betty Bee and Mr Tony 🖤💛

I absolutely loved my TruTravels!

27-May-2022

I absolutely loved my trutravels experiences! I did the Colombia and Costa Rica trip and had the best time! Everything was very well planned out, the leaders were amazing, and I met so many cool people. I’ll definitely be doing more trips in the future!

I would definitely recommend Tru travels

05-Jul-2022

I would definitely recommend Tru travels, I’ve had an amazing and unforgettable trip. Our tour guides Nonnie and Gun were incredible - organised and informative but most importantly enormous fun. I’ve made friends for life and I’m heartbroken to be leaving. I’m very glad I decided to do this tour.

I am on my final...

29-Sep-2023

I am on my final day of the 10 day Bali Experience and I honestly can’t put into words how much I’ve loved my trip. As my first time solo travelling I was a bit nervous, but this was the perfect trip. Everything about it has been amazing and the activities have exceeded my expectations. One of the best things about the trip was our tour guide - Ibing we love you soooo much. Ibing has been so kind, caring and helpful and has always gone above and beyond to make sure everyone in the group feels safe and is having a great time. I am going to miss Ibing and my whole TruTravels family so much.

I did the Vietnam Experience...

20-Jan-2024

I did the Vietnam Experience with Lucas and it was an amazing tour! He was on time with all the info we needed, super organized and great company to hang out with! Any culture or history questions were answered and we learned lots of things about this amazing country! I really liked how respectful and mindful he was of others; He knew how to deal with the more sensitive people in the group and was super nice to everyone! My highlights of the trip where : Hoi An and Ninh Binh 😊 The activities were so much fun and the views incredible!! Also, despite the rainy weather he made sure we had a great time! I would definitely recommend him to my friends! Thanks Lucas for a great trip!!

I would 100% recommend!

21-Jul-2022

Just finished the 21 day northern Thailand and beaches tour. The tour guides on both parts (Scotty, Whisky, Arthur) were amazing: fun, warm, organised, informative and much more. I really enjoyed the action packed days on the Northern tour including the bike riding, Elephant Sanctuary, waterfalls and water park. I also liked that the south was more chill with beach days, swimming, kayaking and evening parties. I would 100% recommend!

This was the second tour...

21-Sep-2023

This was the second tour I have done with TruTravels. I have done the Bali experience and the Vietnam tour which were both amazing. The Vietnam tour has been absolutely incredible! The trip wouldn’t have been the same without our tour guide Lucas. He was super friendly, funny and confident from the get go. I loved that on the first night he gave us all a bracelet which was a really nice touch to start the tour with. Lucas was always helpful and knowledgeable. If we ever had any questions (whether it was to do with transport, culture history etc.), he always answered well. This meant that the tour was very culturally enriching and I felt as though I got to learn a lot of really interesting information about Vietnam. Lucas was also absolutely hilarious and would joke about with all of us which made it feel as though we were all a big family. My favourite parts were Ha long Bay, Ninh Binh and Hoi An. The views were stunning and the tour activities were so fun. On the last night, Lucas had handwritten a postcard which was personalised to each of us. He then played the guitar and sang us a song, which made some of us cry. We were all very emotional to be leaving and Lucas/ the rest of the group has left a mark. The tour will have a special place in my heart, thanks to Lucas. Overall, Lucas was not just our tour guide, he was our friend. I’ve booked another true travels tour because I loved it so much. I would definitely recommend!

20-Jun-2023

Just completed the Bali Bliss Experience and it was brilliant. It was my second time travelling with TruTravels having been Mexico last year with them. On the Bali Bliss tour we had Monk as our tour leader and we was awesome. Always making sure everyone was having a good time, he was a lot of fun and brought so much energy to the tour. Highly recommend!!

Really great experience here in...

15-Aug-2023

Really great experience here in Bali. TruTravels really took care of me and helped me when I broke my phone and got an upper respiratory infection. Monk, the guide, is really knowledgeable and loves sharing the fun. You can freely participate with the activities or do something on your own. Monk will help you out. Definitely recommend!!!

TruTravels went above end beyond!

07-Jul-2022

Had an incredible first experience in Thailand thanks to Nonnie and Gun, our incredible tour guides. They were both professional, friendly, so generous and always smiling themselves or making the group laugh! We were blessed with upgrades in many of the places we visited, for example extra meals thrown in, bigger Ferry, cheaper drinks, premium hotel rooms, and more! It was such a luxury to have everything planned out for us so no thinking was involved, perfect when not having been in Thailand before. At the same time, our tour guides were also really flexible so the group could decide when / where we wanted to go if we had specific interests. Highly recommend TruTravels, can’t flaw them at all and am proud to wear our bonus free TruTravels t-shirt around town ;)
