I will be taking the 17 day Italy tour this spring and I was wondering what passes not listed in What's Included will we be receiving. I'm in the process of planning some things to do in my free time and am wondering if I should budget for things like museum passes and public transportation. Cities I need the information for are Venice and Rome mostly.
I would suggest calling the tour department directly to ask them this question. They would have the most up to date info. Regarding what passes are even offered in each city and they will let you know which are included.
Have fun on your tour.
Hi, Vanessa. Passes won't be provided that are not on the list. Your guide will handle all the transportation the group does together and will pass out extra Rome Metro tickets for you to get home from wherever the group tour ends, but not a daily transport pass or a sightseeing pass.
You have an afternoon free in each city, but many tour members would not choose to see more than just one additional museum in each and would not need a museum pass. To see the Doge's Palace in Venice, the combo ticket with the Correr Museum is the cheapest deal, and it can be purchased at the nearby Correr Museum, in order to avoid the ticket line at the palace itself; or you can buy it online a few days ahead. In Rome, if you want to visit the Borghese gallery, then reserve that ahead as a single ticket.
Thank, that is what I thought. Can't wait until April!!
