Policy & TermsWe've put together some specific information on what you should know about this tour before you go. You'll also find more general information about "Getting Ready for Your Tour" on our Tour FAQ. Trip Resources Learn more about Rome: Check out a collection of Rick's TV shows, radio interviews, and articles, plus recommended books and movies. Tour Hotels In case you wish to book pre- or post-tour hotel accommodations, the contact information for the tour's first and last hotels is included in your tour confirmation email. About three weeks prior to the tour departure, we'll email you directions on how to get from the airport to your first tour hotel, as well as the complete list of hotels where we'll be staying while on tour. Transportation Many tour members arrive a day or two before the tour begins — and those who don't, wish they had. This allows you ample time to get over jet lag and make the most of the first few days of the tour. Rome is a major transportation hub, making additional travel before or after your tour quite easy. For information about flying within Europe, ask your travel agent or check Rick's list of European budget airlines. Read Rick's train travel and rail pass tips to decide if your travel plans merit a rail pass. If you need more information about additional European travel or for specific questions about your tour, contact the Tour Department at 425-608-4217 or email email@example.com. Sightseeing on Your Own If you arrive in Rome before your tour begins, use the Rick Steves Rome guidebook to get oriented. Ride the public transportation, try out a few words of Italian and get over your jet lag with lots of fresh air and exercise. Here are suggestions for sightseeing in Rome that we do not do as a group: Capitol Hill museums, National Museum of Rome, Etruscan Museum, Santa Maria Maggiore, Testaccio neighborhood, Castel Sant' Angelo, day trips to Naples/Pompeii (very long day, worth an overnight), Tivoli (Hadrian's Villa, Villa d'Este). Most museums are closed Mondays. Confirm your sightseeing plans with any tourist information office. If you are interested in seeing the Pope, you may want to attend the Sunday blessing. You can check the Pope's schedule in advance. Those with a couple of extra days to spend may want to extend their time in Italy. Rome is well connected for quick trips around the country. Florence is only 90 minutes away by train, Naples is two hours south, and Milan and Venice are less than five hours north. For a more rural experience, explore the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria. These regions are most easily seen by car but public transportation can work for those with extra time and patience! Some of Rick's favorites include Orvieto, Civita, Assisi, Perugia, San Gimignano, and Siena. When traveling off-season, always call ahead for hours and closures to avoid disappointment. Packing For more advice on what (and what not!) to pack, see Rick's packing tips. Special packing note: We use an audioguide system with disposable earbuds for many of our sightseeing and museum tours. If you wear a hearing aid, we strongly recommend bringing headphones that go over your ears to allow you to fully enjoy these tours.
