Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

All roads lead to Rome. Or wait, on this vacation they lead to Venice as well, so you can enjoy two of Italy’s captivating cities. You won’t travel between the cities on a road, though. We’ve arranged for you to travel via high-speed train from Rome to Venice. We’ve also arranged three nights hotel reservations in each city, guided sightseeing, buffet breakfast daily, transfers to/from your hotels, to/from the train stations, and the services of a Local Host® in each city, a “friend” who will help answer questions, offer suggestions and help you get the most out of your vacation. Your first Local Host will meet you upon your arrival at your Rome hotel, present you with materials on the city, and answer any questions you have about your destination.

No matter where you travel, our global network of travel experts has you ready to reconnect.

With exceptional health and safety protocols and on-trip contingency plans for unexpected surprises, Monograms travelers see more of the world with more peace of mind..

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Monograms will conduct tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start and peace of mind throughout the journey. This includes proof of vaccination for all guests. See our complete Health & Safety Pre-Trip Screening Instructions

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

There may be times on tour or on the motorcoach when social distancing is required. We will take care in assuring any local guidelines are followed in a safe and comfortable way for our guests. For any cases where masks are required due to local guidelines, we ask that guests bring their own approved N95 (FFP2) masks for their own comfort and safety. Our wireless listening technology enables safe distances between our guests and other travelers during excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for each of our guests and our team, our Tour Directors, Local Hosts, and motocoach drivers are fully vaccinated, and we are also requiring that all travelers are fully vaccinated before joining our trips. Additionally, we will conduct regular guest checks, including temperatures and, when required by local guidelines, masks will be worn by our guests and by our team when accompanying guests. In all other cases, masks are optional for our fully vaccinated guests

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Monograms removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/check out interaction, expedited entry into attractions and more. We are further reducing risk with handsfree services, including some self-services now performed by staff, including the elimination of self-service buffet meals in some cases. We 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, we are requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with our hotel partners, on our motorcoaches, vehicles, and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above and beyond our already strict health and safety procedures. And our motorcoaches are equipped with air f ilters that clean the air as well as provide constant ventilation.

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.

Questions & Answers

Question: Good morning are these prices per person?

Prices are per person, based on double occupancy.

Question: do you offer tours where airfare is included? And, can we pick the hotels in the package?

The tours already have hotels built in so you will not be able to pick hotels. When you request a quote from our website, you can ask to receive airfare pricing as well.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

It was an amazing trip with fantastic local guides in every location.

Excellent services, reliable, informative, friendly

Our trip was wonderful. Everything that was offered was provided. The local hosts were great and professional.

The travel consultants are knowlegeable about tour details and do a great job matching customer needs with the right tour.

Monograms was just the right mix for us. City tours and transportation were great - but we enjoyed the flexibility of going out and seeing what we wanted to see at our own pace.

Outstanding service and organized. Would recommend to anyone.

I wouldn't change a thing. From start to finish-professional advice and detailed explanation of what to expect-a great adventure!

The Monograms local host system worked like clockwork. They were there as scheduled and took the worry out of flight, hotel, and tour transfers.

A trip that I found to be a nightmare to try and plan on my own was made so easy by having Marianne take charge and make all of the arrangements. I had been searching on line, had met with a local travel agent, and was overwhelmed and really getting nowhere. I was ready to give up on my trip planning, stumbled across finding Marianne, and suddenly she made the seemingly impossible happen with no problems! Without her expertise guiding me along and handling the arrangements, I have no doubt that this trip would not have happened. As for the trip: Monograms did a superb job with putting their package together. It more than exceeded my expectations. this will undoubtedly rank as one of my best trips EVER.

Monograms was fantastic. We were independant and did not use them for many of the excursions but they were very helpful for first day orientation, suggestions and were available throughout for any questions. The included half day tours were very good. If you wanted to have everything arranged for you instead of being independant there were many good excursions to choose from.

Very well organized tour, knowledgeable guides. Have a wonderful time.

Monograms was wonderful! Everything was just as they promised. The travel was easy, there were no surprises, it was a stress-free vacation! Having the local host available was great. They were all valuable.

This is our third trip booked with Trena through Affordable Tours using the Globus company. The trip went off without a single glitch from flights to airport transfers to hotel.

Monograms, for the most part, was great We loved the "independent tour" format which gave us much more flexibility with our time in each place we visited. The local hosts were great-some better for us than others--but very helpful. The city tours which were provided varied in quality but usually gave a good overview of the city. A couple of our hotels were not as good as others (construction in progress, smaller rooms or breakfast not as comprehensive) but all were clean and adequate. Two of our flights were changed by the airlines, but the transportation contracted by Monograms did not get the change (schedule change occurred weeks before we left the US for our trip) so did not arrive to take us to the airport. Thank goodness for Uber!

The hotels were wonderful, I can't complain about that.
