Tour Itinerary

According to Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.” While Monograms can’t help you write a book, hike up Mount Everest, or swim across the English Channel, we can make sure you do one of your dreams—travel to Italy! That’s why on this Italy vacation package, we’ve arranged your hotel accommodations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, high-speed train connection between Rome and Florence, and transfers from/to your hotels & train stations. Plus, Rome and Florence have so much to offer that it can be hard knowing where to start. That’s why we’ve arranged the services of a Local Host® in both cities, a local expert to offer suggestions, answer questions, and ensure your vacation is all you want it to be.Your Italy trip begins as soon as you arrive in Rome, where we can seamlessly whisk you from the airport to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will welcome you with a hearty benvenuto and present you with a destination guide to acquaint 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, who will share inside stories around the must-see sights such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Sistine Chapel, and more. The VIP access offered by Monograms means you’ll spend more time visiting the sights rather than waiting in long lines! In Florence, where you’ll take an escorted walk with a Certified Local Guide, you’ll stand in awe of Michelangelo’s famous David statue and admire the medieval Ponte Vecchio.You’ll also have time to explore Rome and Florence on your own. In Rome, you may want to visit the catacombs, throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, shop at the famous fashion boutiques, or take an Italian cooking class. In Florence, sip Chianti wine at a Tuscan restaurant; explore the Uffizi Gallery, with art work collected by the Medici family; take an excursion to Pisa to see the famous Leaning Tower; or experience Florence by night on a guided walking tour. Your Local Hosts can help arrange excursions and will have plenty of suggestions for shopping, restaurants, and more.Don’t delay...Rome and Florence are waiting for you. We’ve handled all the stressful parts of travel—making the reservations, purchasing the train tickets, getting you to/from the train stations, finding local experts who can really give you an insider’s view of the cities, and more. All you have to do is cross Rome and Florence off your list of things to do, and enjoy this wonderful Italy trip!

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Monograms Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Monograms' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Monograms has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Monograms' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Monograms' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Monograms will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Monograms will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Monograms' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Monograms will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Monograms' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Monograms removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Monograms are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Monograms will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Monograms' commitment to clean, Monograms is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Monograms has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Our hotel in Rome was great! but the hotel in Florence was below expectations. Their coffee was bad. Considering we were in Italy, the coffee should be good. Theirs was like drinking hot water. The room was old, linen has holes in it, old towels. Did not feel clean staying there.
