Monograms $1426 7 Details

“When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine, that's amore…” We agree with Dean Martin and this famous song! And you know what else will make you feel amore? This trip to Sorrento and Rome! Monograms has handled your vacation details and made it easy for you to travel, so you can spend your time falling in love with Sorrento’s beautiful Old Town, Rome’s friendly people, the beautiful sea, and so much more. On this 7-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, and transportation between Sorrento and Rome. Plus, we've arranged the services of a Local Host® in both cities. This "friend in the city" is there to answer questions, offer suggestions, help you personalize your trip, and help make sure your vacation is what you want it to be.

Your vacation begins when you arrive at Sorrento's nearest airport, which is in Naples. We can pick you up at the airport and transfer you to your Sorrento hotel, so you do not have to deal with the hassles of airport transfers. At your selected hotel, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who intimately knows the town, who will share inside stories, and who will tell you what it is like to live in this beautiful town. Sorrento offers everything to visitors—the sea, beautiful scenery, scenic mountain views, history, music, culture, and a relaxing atmosphere. On your guided tour, we’ll introduce you to this town and show you some of the historic places. Among the many sights, you’ll see the 14th-century Sedil Dominova building and visit the cloister of St. Francis Church. We've also arranged for you to sample limoncello, world-famous liqueur made from Sorrento’s lemons.

You’ll also enjoy a full day of leisure to explore on your own. Perhaps take an excursion to nearby Pompeii, where you’ll see how people lived in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the town. Perhaps take an excursion along the Amalfi Coast, where you’ll experience breathtaking views. You may just want to relax in Sorrento and shop for locally crafted inlaid intarsio woodwork, or sit at a café and enjoy the local specialties. Just ask your Local Host for some of the best places.

Then, it’s off to Rome via high-speed train. But don't worry. We’ll pick you up at your Sorrento hotel; transfer you to Naples, where the train station is; and make sure you get on the right train. We’ll pick you up at the Rome train station and take you to your selected hotel as well. The next day, after included breakfast, your exclusive, guided sightseeing with a local expert includes the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, where you’ll view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment. History comes alive as you hear the insider stories and visit the historic sights you’ve heard so much about—the mighty Colosseum, the amphitheater used for deadly gladiatorial contests; the Roman Forum, the political, social, and commercial center during the Roman Empire; and St. Peter’s Church and Basilica, the very church where the pope often presides.

On your free day in Rome, you have many opportunities. You may want to visit Rome's catacombs, take a cooking class with a Roman chef, join one of the many walking tours around Rome, enjoy a ghost tour, sample local Italian specialties, and so much more. Just ask your Local Host for suggestions and help in arranging the activities and excursions you desire.

And did we mention your train ticket between Sorrento and Rome is first-class? Also, with Monograms, you receive VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines at the Vatican Museums, the Colosseum, and the Roman Forum! That means you save over four hours of time wasted in line. Add the time you save—not to mention the stress—by letting us handle the details for your vacation (plus, knowing you’ll have a Local Host in each city to assist you), and you've got yourself a dream vacation!

Your trip concludes with two days in Bangkok. Take a private guided tour including the Temple of the Dawn, whose 260-foot-tall spire has become identified with Bangkok; the Grand Palace; the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, painstakingly carved from a single block of jade; and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok. Wait until you see the 49-foot-high and 151-foot-long massive Reclining Buddha! We’ve also included a boat ride through the klongs, Bangkok’s canals, where you will see family homes, temples, and the local way of life.

Giuseppe Verdi famously declared, “You may have the universe if I may have Italy.” Wow…he must have thought Italy was an amazing place! At Monograms, we agree, and that’s why we’ve made it easy for you to experience Italy in all its glory. On this 16-day vacation to Sorrento, Rome, Florence, Venice, and Lake Maggiore, we’ve taken care of the travel logistics and hassles, so all you have to do is enjoy. We’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, transportation between the cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, in each city, we’ve arranged for you to have the services of a Local Host®, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, help you navigate the cities, offer suggestions, and help your vacation run smoothly.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in Sorrento. The nearest airport is Naples, but we can pick you up at the airport and bring you to your selected hotel in the resort town of Sorrento. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and a set of materials to help familiarize you with this town. In fact, in each city, your Local Host will welcome you to the city, help you get settled, and give you materials so you can start exploring immediately. Plus, we've also arranged for guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share insider stories and what day-to-day life is like in the cities.

In Sorrento, your sightseeing includes a walk in the Old Town and a visit to the cloister of St. Francis Church. In Rome, we've arranged for visits to the Vatican Museums to see its amazing treasures; the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll view Michelangelo's The Last Judgment and famous ceiling paintings; St. Peter's Square and Basilica, built in 313 AD; the iconic Colosseum; and the Roman Forum, where the oldest structures of the ancient city are located. In Florence, we’ll take you to see Michelangelo's David and we’ll take you on a walking tour to see attractions such as the Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant bridge that has housed stores since the 13th century. In Venice, guided sightseeing includes visits to St. Mark's Square and Basilica, Doges’ Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs. We've also arranged for you to see a glassblower’s demonstration, so you can learn why glassmaking has been so important in Venetian history. In Lake Maggiore, guided sightseeing includes a boat ride to the Palace and Gardens of Isola Bella, which has been owned by the Borromeo family since the 1500s.

In each city, you’ll have a full day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). In Sorrento, you may want to take an excursion to nearby Pompeii to learn what life was like in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius buried the town. Limoncello is the world-famous liqueur made in Sorrento, and we've included a sampling of it for you. In Rome, you may want to visit one of the catacombs, shop at one of the many designer boutiques, or visit Tivoli. From Florence, consider an excursion to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower. Be sure to taste the Chianti—just ask your Local Host for the best spot to try a glass. In Venice, you may want to just wander around the back alleys, browsing the many shops. Or perhaps enjoy a serenaded gondola ride so you can experience Venice from its canals. In Lake Maggiore, maybe catch the Mottarone Cable Car for panoramic views over seven lakes and the Alps. Your Local Host in each city will have many suggestions for you.

And that’s not all…we’ve included transportation via high-speed train (first-class) between each city. It’s the best way to travel in Italy and will allow you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenic countryside. We’ve thrown in transfers to/from the train stations, including from Milan (the nearest train station to Lake Maggiore), and even make sure you get on the correct train! With the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, the transportation and transfers we've included, and the hotels we've booked, all you have to do is enjoy the cities and countryside. Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have someone in each city to help you (not to mention in the train stations), and you've got a vacation of a lifetime!
