Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Rome!

Accommodation: Hotel Marcella Royal; Hotel dei Mellini; Empire Palace Hotel; Hotel Victoria

Begin your adventure in Italy in the famous and ancient city of Rome! Check into your hotel, pick up your Hop-On/Hop-Off bus passes and let the routes whisk you away throughout the city, visiting major attractions like the Colosseum or the Roman Forum.

Transfer to Rome hotel

You'll be in one of these hotels, depending on availability

Rome Hop-on/Hop-off Bus Tour (48 hours) - all year

Visiting the capital of Italy has never been so easy and exciting! Get on CitySightseeing open top red bus and admire this wonderful city from another “higher” perspective! Onboard you will find an interesting commentary which will provide you with information about everything around you. Bus Line A gives you the opportunity to explore the main places of interest, like the Colosseum, the Vatican City and the Trevi Fountain.

Day 2: Rome

Take your second day of Hop-On/Hop-Off exploring and see everything you didn't have the time to before. Walk among the stoic pillars of the Pantheon, toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain with the wish to return, sit on the Spanish Steps, and more!

Day 3: Rome – Positano

Accommodation: Positano Art Hotel Pasitea

Pick up your rental car and head out to the stunning coastal city of Positano. Check into your artistic and charming hotel that looks out over the water, and take in the truly breathtaking views Positano has to offer.

Day 4: Positano

With a multitude of activities available and all of them accompanied by striking scenery, choosing what to do first might be difficult! You could hike the Path of the Gods, a walking trail along the Amalfi Coast that goes all the way to Nocelle, or you could wander the city's winding streets dotted with boutiques, art galleries, ceramic shops, and the occasional castle. You could also take a nice cruise along the beach roads for a drive with a view.

Or perhaps a day at the beach, relaxing on a beach chair while beach boys bring you food and drink is the way you want to start your days in Positano. A tip for beach-goers: chairs, umbrellas, and facilities are privately owned and a small fee is charged for using them. If nothing during the day catches your attention, you could also indulge in the thriving nightlife along the coast. With bars and restaurants, and even a disco, found throughout the city, there is no shortage of partying.

Day 5: Positano

Photographers will find an endless muse in Positano. From the hill of houses to the stunning flowers to the coast, everything begs to be captured through a lens. Tourists could also rent a paddle-board or kayak and spend a day on the water. Exploring the otherworldly grottos on a boat tour is also an exciting and beautiful way to spend an afternoon. For those looking to go a bit further, there are also ferries that go along the Amalfi Coast and to Capri, which makes for a stunning day trip.

Positano is also known for its lemon...well, everything! Candy, perfume, bath products, liquor, you name it, and Positano very likely has a lemon version of it. Among lemon products, you can also find white crochet or linen clothing in many boutiques, a lovely and popular style of outerwear in the area.

Day 6: Depart Italy

Make sure you've got your souvenirs all packed away, drive to Naples to return your car and catch your plane home.

Fly home!

When I booked with Great Value I was nervous because it seemed too good to be true. Nope, just a really great deal. I was able to take my dream trip to Ireland and Scotland and it was within my budget. Everything was covered, my lodging, flights, and rental car. There was no hidden fees, or fine print that would nickel and dime me later on, as "good deals" usually have. I also had to change the date of my trip and the customer service was excellent and this change was simple. Thank you Great Value, I'll be using you every time I travel from now on

Everything on the trip was excellent. The only concern with any services from GVV was initial communications ahead of the trip regarding when and how we'd receive all our travel vouchers, as some were available online, and some were to be picked up in country upon arrival. It took no less than 5 phone calls to learn some vouchers would be picked up in country. The trip was outstanding, exhausting, but gloriously beautiful. It was exhausting from the perspective of moving around the country and only a few places were 2 nights. But, we knew that going in, and we wanted to see ALL of Switzerland and this certainly checked those boxes. We saw majestic mountains, we saw countless waterfalls and glaciers. The trains in Switzerland were all clean and we felt safe. The hotels were good with delicious breakfasts each morning. Overall, I would recommend GVV to a friend or family member and I would personally book another vacation with GVV.

This was my first time planning a trip out of the country. I read previous reviews who had a good experience with Great Value Vacation. Our trip was amazing! The booking and reservations were easy to use with the vouchers provided. The staff was helpful. The only downside was I upgraded to have an automatic vehicle and they gave me a stick shift. It took a while to get sorted out but other than that I loved my trip! I will definitely use great value vacations again when I book my next trip. I opted for the additional wine tasting package and I did not regret it! I recommend adding those additional tours to get a more complete experience.

My wife and I recently booked our vacation through Great Value Vacations. We were a bit nervous to travel to Europe for the first time, but we are glad we did. Great Value Vacations took care of us. Great customer service. Seamless transactions. They booked the hotels and flights for us. All we had to worry about were the daily activities! I would highly recommended them. The hotels offered through the package were as advertised: nice and in great locations. The flights times were also convenient. The best part was the price. I am thankful for the experiences Great Value Vacation was able to provide for us!

Really enjoyed both of my trips through Great Value Vacations. I went on one family trip to Ireland (Adare villa, rental car with trips out to Dublin, Cliffs of Moher and more) . The villa was very comfortable with a kitchen, three bedrooms, and proximity to the local shops /restaurants. We were able to upgrade to an automatic car and had fun navigating to each location on our itinerary. The trip as planned by the agency still leaves time for exploring on your own and since we picked a trip with our own transportation, we had flexibility on which tours we wanted to do and when.

My second trip was a solo trip to Scotland. I like to go on vacation by myself sometimes, but it can be hard to find ones where you aren’t penalized for being on your own. This train trip to Edinburgh, Inverness, and Glasgow worked out really well for me. The hotels were all near the train stations and in safe areas (good lighting, plenty of people, etc.). I got a good mix of options for sightseeing in each city. The hop-on, hop-off bus circuit was especially useful for getting around Edinburgh. I also added an extra tour on in Glasgow to see nearby castles and a distillery and was very glad to have done so as the views of the countryside were amazing!

Summary: Have enjoyed my previous experiences and would definitely use again

Just got back from our trip to Italy booked through Great Value Vacations & was our dream come true! We could not have gone if it were not for their unbelievable rates. Each 4 Star Villa we stayed at was above and beyond our expectations...I cried after leaving each part of our journey. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking with them. Besides the Villas being beautiful, great locations, clean, and great staff; each place we arrived at actually said, "They said to give you a very nice room." (with a rate of just under $1,900 a piece for 9 nights not counting travel days at 4 stars Villas in Rome, Tuscany, & Venice including airfare and rent a car... a few friends told us to expect the worst rooms at the places we were staying ~ NOT the case! Our rooms had the best views...I could go on and on. Every step of the way was smooth with no worries whatsoever. Thanks again GVV! LOVED IT!
