Italy is probably the most celebrated destination, a country that is on the bucket list of many people in the world. The country really does have it all: the world’s greatest hoard of art and architectural treasures, a rich history, a relaxing and pretty mild climate and, not to forget, stunning natural beauty.
On this solo traveler-friendly trip to Rome and Venice travel with like-minded travelers and visit the classic sites in Italy.
This twin centre holiday starts in Rome and ends in Venice. A city that needs no introduction, the Italian capital of Rome is a haven for culture vultures, history buffs and foodies.
This is a place where millennia-old ruins collide with exceptional eateries and plates piled high with fluffy pastas and tasty gelato. From the Pantheon to the Colosseum and the thousand-year-old churches built into the city’s skeleton, there are plenty of architectural gems and historical landmarks begging to be explored.
Next up, thunder across the vastness of Italy's plains in a scenic train crossing the magnificent country. Nestled in a lagoon in the Adriatic, Venice is an Italian slither of paradise that excites even the most seasoned of travellers. A firm feature on many holidaymakers’ bucket-lists, Venice is exciting and unusual. Built on more than 100 small islands, the city has no roads – only canals. Boats and gondolas slice through the emerald-hued waters like knives to a birthday cake and the labyrinthine streets, like never-ending strands of spaghetti, bathe in the scent of rich, Italian delicacies and invite endless wandering. Visit Doge’s Palace, wander Venice’s Jewish Quarter and haggle at Rialto Market. The Rialto Bridge is one of Venice’s most renowned icons – scurry up to the highest part, huddle around the edge and put that selfie stick to good use.
The holiday starts with a 2 night stay at the ‘eternal’ city of Athens, the capital of one of the most powerful civilizations of the ancient world. Walk hand in hand with history and visit some of its architectural masterpieces like the Acropolis and the Parthenon temple. A visit to Athens would seem incomplete without a visit to its shining jewels, the Acropolis museum and the National Archaeological Museum.
After Athens, you will visit Santorini, possibly the most romantic and picturesque Greek Island, born from an ancient volcanic eruption, whose stupendous cliffs rise 900 feet from a half-moon caldera which also makes it a fascinating island to explore. Picturesque villages teeter on the rocky sides and white washed Cycladic houses perfectly complement the blue domed rooftops.
The last 5 nights will be spent in Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands. In fact, it also wins 5th place among all the Mediterranean islands. A holiday in Crete comes with a generous choice of beaches and wherever you go, there’s a warm welcome and a hearty Cretan feast to make your Greek experience complete.
“To awaken alone in a strange town," wrote British explorer and travel writer Freya Stark "is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.” So what’s stopping you? Do yourself a favour and travel to the fascinating places of Kerala solo – no one to answer to, no limits and a fresh clean slate for you to splash with the colours of India!

Sure, you might start your journey by yourself, but you’ll soon discover that our small-group trip allows you to explore Kerala in the company of like-minded people.
As Lonely Planet perfectly sums up: "Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere, as if India had passed through the Looking Glass and becomes an altogether more laid-back place". Thus, naturally this part of the world attracts those looking to get up close and personal with the dazzling gems of India. You’ll enjoy the journey even more by sharing the experience with a small group of passionate travelers, over a glass of wine or meal after a packed day of treasures.
Your journey of a lifetime begins in Kochi, the glorious gateway to Kerala, then onto Munnar where you will enjoy the finest tea with new friends. Continue to Thekkady to board the wildlife viewing boat at the Periyar Tiger Reserve before setting out on an enchanting overnight house boat from Alleppey.
