I am looking to book the RS Best of South Italy Tour in late April 2018, but noted that the itinerary lines up so that an intermediate stop at Tivoli would land on a Monday when the attraction is closed. Does anybody know how this might be handled since the itinerary does not appear to afford an alternative time for this sight? I was on the RS Greece tour over Greek Independence Day and the itinerary was juggled to accommodate the sights closed on the holiday, but the RS South Italy Tour itinerary does not appear to have a place to logistically allow Tivoli if this intermediate sight falls on a Monday or Holiday. Thanks for thoughts.
I would contact the RS office. Seems odd they would make that kind of scheduling goof
When I took the Belgium/Netherlands tour one of our days fell on May Day. The home office sent an email, about 2 months before the start date, stating the museum we were to visit would be closed that day, but our guide would have alternative plans. Our group went to the gardens instead while in Brussels on May Day.
I am sure the home office is aware and has alternative plans in place. You might want to contact them, if you would like to know what they are before booking the tour.
Unless the tour has changed from when I took it two years ago, the attraction is Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli. According to this website, it's only closed on 25 Dec and 1 Jan.
Thank you Cill from Tennessee. There appear to be three main sights in Tivoli---Villa d'Este, Villa Gregoriana, and Villa Adriana (Hadrian's Villa). The former two are closed on Mondays and the latter open on Mondays. Thanks again for the clarification.
