Italien

In Italien gibt es viel zu sehen, angefangen von faszinierenden Städten und Bauten wie dem Kolosseum im historischen Rom, verwinkelte Gassen und der Charme des zauberhaften Venedig, urige Bauernhöfe mit Weinreben und Olivenbäumen in der Toskana bis hin zu duftenden Zitronenhainen und malerischen Buchten der Cinque Terre und der Amalfi-Küste. Einen weiteren Höhepunkt Italiens bieten die rosigen Granitfelsen der Dolomiten. In dem Land der Aromen, das weit mehr als nur Pizza & Pasta zu bieten hat, kommt sicherlich jeder auf seine Kosten.

Pack light! Guests need to carry luggage on and off trains and metros as well as up and down station stairs. Appropriate footwear also needs to be considered. There is a lot of walking on uneven cobblestone pathways.

As a solo traveler or with a friend Intrepid is the perfect way to travel ,with small groups you get to know your travel companions, you feel safe and well cared for by your Intrepid leader,and the accommodation and Itinerys are fabulous.

Our tour leader was excellent and very knowledgeable. He loves the nature and history and I enjoyed his stories. The paths were beautiful. The hikes were easy and it is not necessary to bring hiking shoes on a trip. The location of hotels was perfect and I personally enjoyed Agerola hotel. I think it would be nice to include if optional things to do in amalfi or Ravella such as classical music concerts or amalfi musicals.

Active Cinque Terretrip was challenging but extremely rewarding with amazing views and delicious food/wine in each local region. Loved all the tiny villages plus walking in May with the wild flowers out.

The Italy Experience trip provided the perfect opportunity to see the classic highlights of Italy with a small group. The accommodations are conveniently located and there is a good balance between time on one’s own and the guided, group aspects/activities. It is well organized and the small group aspects allows for a more “nimble” and personalized approach. Using the local trains, metros and buses allowed for flexibility as well as added independence when away from the group. I would recommend arriving in Venice a few days earlier and remaining in Rome a few days later to allow one to more fully explore these two culturally and historically rich cities. The group leader was outstanding and went out of his way to provide assistance and suggestions as well as create a welcoming environment. We also really enjoyed the other members of the group – diverse and friendly. This was my first trip with Intrepid and I look forward to future opportunities.

Definitely a trip worth taking. Italy is amazing in many respects (culture, history, nature and of course, food!) and this trip offers you a good view on all of those good things in Italy. I can definitely recommend taking this trip in April – May before tourist season is in full swing. It must be crazy!

This trip was a wonderful “taste of Italy”! A couple days at each city and we packed in as much as we could in those couple of days. Italy is such a beautiful country and it was fantastic having someone guide us around, yet also have a lot of free time on our own. I will definitely try Intrepid tours again!

Great trip if you want free time for yourself. The orientation walks help you get your bearings so as to get around easily on your own. Definitely book things like the Vatican, dome climb Uffizi and collosseum at least a week in advance to avoid lines and get the times you want, we only just managed to get tickets with the help of our tour leader. 1 night either side of the tour is great to get settled and see more as well.

An inexperienced traveller and travelling alone, Intrepid was great.

Even more rewarding than opening the shutters onto a stunning early-morning Lake Como panoramic view, this trip’s character is best captured by a No.8 public bus journey in Piedmont to Castagnole Monferrato to visit winemaker Luigi in his own living room followed by 5-course lunch at La Miraja: magical!

We had a splendid tour of the Amalfi Coast. Gabriele, our guide, was terrific introducing us to some wonderful experiences. We are in our mid 60s, so we were a bit uncertain about taking the tour. But we didn’t need to worry… we had a great time getting to know our twenty-something fellow sailors, in what turned out to be a five-star adventure. Gabriele made it all so easy, and I think we all felt very lucky to have him as our skipper.

I would like to add an overall general comment. When I arrived at the meeting point hotel I was most displeased to see some of my private information disclosed. There was a list of all the travellers posted at the front desk with names, nationality (which I am ok with), and also my date of birth – which I am NOT ok with. Please DO NOT display what I consider private information in public. My date of birth is private and I want to keep it private. I have been on several Intrepid trips and this was the first time ever my date-of-birth was made public.

Lovely scenery with some great hikes but a more engaging tour leader would have helped the whole experience. No need for water purification tablets or walking poles and a suitcase is fine (as opposed to a backpack – trust me!). A few of us went to Sorrento after the trip and it was easy to get there from Amalfi and then onwards to Napoli airport. (Intrepid – please improve your feedback form. I had to retype everything after apparently taking too long and also pressed the back button only to find I had to re-enter the information on the next page again!!)

After travelling to Europe 3 times in the past four years and going on large group tours I was looking for something different. I wanted the organisation but not the limitations large group travel comes with. I certainly found it with Intrepid, small group, fantastic tour leader and the perfect mix of organised and free time. We traveled on local transport and ate where the locals eat. Forget about your chain hotels, I stayed in small family owned hotels with all the charm and personality that comes with someone putting their heart and soul into making sure you have a great authentic experience. Loved my holiday and will be travelling with Intrepid again.

The ebike option was critical to our initial decision to bike in Europe and in completing the trip in an enjoyable fashion.

I enjoyed the mode of travel by train and staying in small hotels throughout Italy, but it does require that you can manage your own luggage and therefore don’t take too much. Though I found everyone very helpful throughout the journey.

I found the group experience and comradeship very satisfying on this tour as a single traveller.

I know they say no rollerbags because of cobble stones and transportation concerns but do use one. I had backpack and packed minimally but at 71, the walking from train to hotel was difficult. Too heavy. Had to buy a roller suitcase and the rest of trip much easier. Know your health limitations and stick to them. You walk a lot on these trips. I put in 20,000 steps on several days; up and down stairs and Italy is full of bridges and rolling hillsides. Have fun and remember you are in Europe not US.

The Italy Experience tour was a good introduction to Italy. Late September was a great time to travel. Tips: Pack light!!! Use a money belt–many people were pick-pocketed at the Pompei train station.

As a solo traveller, Intrepid proves a good balance of group time and organisation that is taken care of by the tour leader, and independent time if that is what you are seeking. Being in a small group allows for greater flexibility and the chance to go slightly off the usually frequented tourist trail and to mingle with the locals by taking local transport and visiting local restaurants and cafes.

Rome to Amalfi
Amanda Rodgers

Rome to Amalfi is was an absolute blast! I went there Late May and I think this was the perfect time as it was around 25 to 26 degrees. Locals are friendly in majority of interactions and most have basic to good English speaking skills. This 8 day adventure is jam-packed with activities and it gives you a great sense of what authentic Italy is really like.

This was an excellent trip providing the opportunity to experience the life, culture and history of Northern Italy. As allowed time in Rome is very limited, suggest that if possible you allow at least one extra day there before the commencement of the trip

A great introduction to what Italy has to offer. I had an incredible time and have no regrets, there was so much to eat, drink, see and do. Be the best prepared by studying the trip notes, book sights that are a must see for you well in advance and aim for carry on luggage only – you will thank yourself later.

Our trip was amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our Intrepid tour leader was fantastic and made the trip fun but safe. We travelled in local style using public transport and eating at local restaurants etc. Probably the only thing I would suggest is check out the fitness rating. The tour we did was a 2 out of 5 for fitness level. There was a lot of walking and climbing stairs which we enjoyed but some people may struggle with. Oh…and pack light!

I love Intrepid. I like the fact the groups are kept small, no more than 12. I have had the experience of two trips: one to Japan and one to Southern Italy and the guides were excellent. The itineraries encouraged local products and have lots of flexibility. You can choose to join in the meals and or activities. Other travellers seem to be like minded in that they are more interested in travel rather than superficial tourism.

I had a fantastic time on this trip. Umbria surprised me, how much I enjoyed it. Had so much fun exploring the little towns and felt like I was living with the locals, rather than being surrounded by tourists. Each day on the Amalfi coast got better and better. I would highly recommend the optional activities of Capri all day boat tour and the limoncello farm visit and would visit Ercolano when in Pompeii.

Intrepid drills down to the local level of whatever area you visit; takes you places out of the ordinary. Make the most of public transport and local food and entertainment suppliers, during free time in the trip. We did and did not regret that.

What a great decision that turned out to be! The Umbrian discovery section of my 5 weeks in Italy was hands down my favourite part. It was amazing to be away from the majority of my fellow tourist and go to the beautiful green rolling hills, the Italy where I had to try to speak Italian, and 1/2 litres of wine were 5 Euro. Oh and truffle lasanga is life changing.

While I tried my best to stick to the bag limit weight range suggested (and the others on the group did), mine was a little heavier. This was still manageable, but they are not exaggerating when you might need to carry your bags up stairs, or a 20 min walk to the hotel, or on and off the train. I had a wheelie bag (with big wheels which made it much easier to walk the cobblestone streets), and could still lift it into the train myself (important, as the leader does not have time to do it for you as you are often all rushing up subway steps and to the right platform).

I travelled to Northern India last September. The Tour was amazing that is why I chose Intrepid again. After this tour it will be my 5th as I did Greek Islands before continuing onto the Italian tour and the Abu Dhabi Desert Tour after the Italian I was a little disappointed with my Greek Island tour as the Tour Guide was new and she had a lot to learn and I had been spoiled by y Tour Guide in India. My only complaint is that our Transfer when we arrived in Venice was not there to collect us and when I called to find out where they were the woman was not very accommodating and advised me to find my own way to our hotel as she did not know how long it would be before she could send someone. I was not impressed at 8.30 pm at night. hence it cost me a considerable of money to get to my hotel..

This was my first trip to Italy. I went by myself and joined 5 couples from Australia who “adopted” me. I traded in my backpack for a medium-sized suitcase with wheels half way through the trip – so much easier. Wear comfortable sneakers and sandals – you will be doing a lot of walking.

I recently planned a month long trip to Italy. At the last minute I decided to add the Intrepid Cycle Tuscany trip based on a friend’s (non-cycling) experience with Intrepid. Wow, what a score. It was easily the highlight of my month long trip. Maybe it was a luck of the draw, however out group really got along well and had a lot of fun together. The scenery was spectacular and much more beautiful than my expectations. I’m an avid rider, but the trip really would fit any cycling level. A van is always nearby to help out if a particular ascent or descent might seem too difficult. The routes, time, and hotels were well thought out. Both of our guides were excellent as well. Can’t wait for the next one. Thanks Intrepid.

Also, I am in decent shape for an American (work out regularly, but not a competitive athlete or anything). The activity level was good/challenging. I was definitely exerting myself every day, which I was happy about. I went in late May and a packable hooded waterproof windbreaker was a must because the weather kept changing throughout the day. Rain pants were not necessary though.

Great mix of history, food and adventure. A medium paced tour with enough time to relax. Was my first time to Italy and I’m already planning the next!

Best of Italy
Douglas Cooper

This trip provided a great overview of northern Italy which you do not want to miss. A great experience.

Cycle Tuscany
Charlotte Stothard

This tour was as described. Lots of fun, sun, eating and cycling. Some days were quite challenging but there was no pressure to do anything you did not want to do and there was always encouragement and help from tour leaders Walter and Kent. Excellent holiday and will do more cycling tours with Intrepid and may even do this one again.

This is a sailing trip but only one of the three nights you are aboard are actually out in open water.

Amalfi Coast: Hike, Boat & Kayak
Yvonne Clark

The trip was a very special experience. I got the opportunity to do many things which would not have been possible had I not been accompanied by a guide with excellent local knowledge. I would recommend this trip to travellers who wish to visit this area and get a true insight into the history, traditions and way of life of the people of this region.

If you haven’t been to Italy ..you must. Include Venice and some of the south for a variety. Its food, culture, people, history and outdoors all combined in one magnificent destination. Do It !

Sail Italy - Procida to Amalfi
Clare Collins

Beautiful coastline which can be taken in slowly, relaxing on the boat. Interesting walks and activities including Pompii the scale of which is jaw dropping. The experience, knowledge and cooking of a well skilled skipper made this trip truly magical and one I will hopefully never forget.

Thus tour was a senic delight with breathtaking landscape. Words cannot describe the sublime beauty if the amalfie coast and I was truly transported to another world in amalfie.

Umbrian Discovery
Janice Thomas

I enjoyed Discover Umbria, the food was sensational . I loved the beautiful old stone villages with their hanging baskets of Spring flowers.

Umbrian Discovery
Deborah Priest

There is quite a bit of time spent on trains in this trip but it was necessary to get to the heart of Italy, the Umbrian region. I would recommend adding this trip to the Best of Italy trip as Italy is so diverse in terms of its regions and the contrast between the traditionally visited tourist destinations in Italy and the country life in Italy is well apparent when you have experienced both.

Great trip

Anna Mccoombe

There was a lot covered in the week long trip which I liked as I probably wouldn’t have covered that many areas on my own in that span of time. I liked that there was a good balance between organised activities and free time to explore on your own.

Bert And Libby Eastoe

Alice helped make beautiful Italy a wonderful and memorable trip. Fabulous local content with family restaurants, hikes , bike rides and exploring. A must to pack lightly to make it more enjoyable when no lifts available.

One thing I forgot to say earlier was how fantastic the hosts at Lake Como were. The rooms were nice and the d=staff were truly outstanding. Very friendly and accommodating. Review: If you’re travelling alone or you are novice traveller, Intrepid is definitely the way to go. All the thinking regarding transfers and “how to” is done for you. You’ll have company went you want it while still having loads of flexibility to explore the things that interest you. The tour guide provides lots of local colour and useful tips. Great fun!

Travelling with Intrepid is a great experience. It’s a perfect balance between organisation, time to explore on your own, and sharing experiences with like minded people. I enjoy the local travel and visiting smaller local based activities. This trip does have a lot of the larger cities, so it is quite busy. Be prepared for lots of walking and crowds,

Sergei Shevchuk

The trip was awesome. It gave an opportunity to connect with local history and culture, and the scenery was breathtaking. It was my first sailing trip. Our skipper Gabriel was very helpful and always make great suggestions for activities and dining. There is an opportunity to learn about sailing. Expect to meet new people. Since you are on a relatively small boat, most of the space is shared. Staying outside on the deck helps with sea sickness. On the nights when yacht is anchored in the sea is a bit rocky to sleep, but when it’s docked in the marina it’s not a problem.
