"No matter where I travel in the world, I am always dreaming of returning to Italy.  There is just something there that keeps you coming back for more.  It is my personal goal to provide you an affordable means to visit Italy, again and again.  Yes, Italy With Friends tours sound almost too good to be true, but they really do provide more than you would expect for the cost!  Do not miss the chance to be a part of the next IWF's tour. " 

Reservations, Deposits and Payments:

A $500.00 deposit will hold your place on the tour.  Remember the tours are limited in size.  Payment is accepted by check or credit card through PayPal. (5% fee if using PayPal) If you are a Bank Of America customer, then you could also do a direct bank transfer to me.  I can get you that information if you are interested.  Your deposit is credited against the total tour cost.  Final payment is due no later than 60 days prior to departure. 

Contact me for information on paying with PayPal or Bank Transfer.
Note on Physical Activity

You must be in GOOD physical condition to sign-up for most IWF trips.  They are not "walking or hiking" tours, but there will be plenty of walking, some uphill and most on uneven cobblestones.  You will need to be on your feet for extended periods of time.  (Especially in museums and in Rome) There may be many steps (depending on the trip) that you will have to climb.  A hilltown really means a hilltown!  You will also have to handle your own luggage most of the time.  If for some reason you are unable to take part in all scheduled activities, you can usually stay at the hotel and relax. I will be glad to work with you on possible alternative activities if they are possible, but cannot guarantee it and you will not be compensated for this time on your own.   Also, if you decide to take public transportation to or from a sight or restaurant that I usually walk to, it will be at your own expense.  Please make sure that you do understand these requirements fully before you consider signing up for one of my tours.  I will plan time for you to relax, but have found that most people want to see as much as possible while in Italy.   Most towns are made for walking and this is how we get around.  Don't worry, I bring plenty of ibuprofen along.
