“Che sarà sarà.” This Italian proverb says, “What will be, will be.” While we believe this is a good attitude to have about life, we don’t take this attitude with your vacation to Rome and Sorrento. Instead, we’ve looked into every detail, handled all the logistics, and left nothing to chance. That’s why on this 7-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, we’ve arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host® in each city, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, offer guidance, help arrange your activities, and ensure that your vacation runs smoothly. This one-of-a-kind feature, offered only by Monograms, is just another way we make your vacation hassle-free.</BR></BR>Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Rome, where we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will be waiting for you to help you get settled and to give you a packet of information to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing of Rome’s famous landmarks. With an expert local guide, we’ll take you to visit the Vatican Museums to see its amazing treasures; the Sistine Chapel, where the Conclave is held to elect new popes and where you’ll view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment; St. Peter’s Square and Basilica, where the Pope often presides; the iconic Colosseum, built in the 1st century and famous for its gladiator fights; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city. And never fear…although these are popular attractions, we’ve secured VIP access for you, so you get to skip the lines! After all, wouldn’t you rather be inside the attractions than waiting in line like all the other tourists?</BR></BR>In Sorrento, your sightseeing with a local expert highlights this beautiful town. Hear inside stories and little-known secrets as you walk along the Old Town and visit the cloister of St. Francis Church. We’ve also secured a limoncello tasting for you. This world-famous liqueur is made with Sorrento’s lemons. It’s just another added feature from Monograms!</BR></BR>In both cities, you’ll have a free day to explore on your own. The possibilities are endless in Rome, but don’t worry—your Local Host will have lots of suggestions and will be able to help arrange activities for you. You may want to visit Rome’s catacombs, take a cooking lesson with an Italian chef, shop at the designer Italian boutiques along Via Condotti, or explore Rome’s famous piazzas while enjoying its mouth-watering cuisine. In Sorrento, perhaps take an excursion to Pompeii to see what life was like in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius buried the town, visit the nearby jet-set Isle of Capri, or shop at the local boutiques.</BR></BR>And did we mention we’ve included transportation between Rome and Sorrento via high-speed train (first-class)? We’ve even included transfers from your Rome hotel to the train station and from Naples, the closest train station to Sorrento, to your hotel in beautiful Sorrento. There is no better way to travel in Italy! With the transportation and transfers we’ve provided, the guides and sightseeing we’ve arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy! Add to the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host throughout your stay—not to mention the stress and time saved by letting us handle the travel details—and you’ll have a marvelous vacation!
