Frequently Asked Questions

    • I am a big foodie, do you have any suggestions for places to eat?

      Of course, you can't go wrong with Italy. One thing that we typically suggest is talking to your Contiki Trip Manager, they will know about all the great places to eat at that will be close to where you will be staying or travelling through.

    • Will we be able to see Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel?

      You will have a local guided tour of Vatican City that will include St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.

    • Is there a single supplement for this tour and is it mandatory?

      The single supplement is completely optional. You are not required to pay a single supplement to join the tour. The tour price advertised is based on a twin share basis, if you are a single traveller you will be roomed with a passenger of the same gender. The single supplement optional cost is if you would like your own room on the tour.
