It's been said before; Italia in 20 days...

Jump to last reply

Ciao... So I have been to Italia may times as a tour guide for mad Kiwis and Aussies 8 years ago. That meant that for 3 seasons I did all the stock standard trips with my pax.

This time I am going to Roma (summer) to study 4 weeks at Dilit with my cousin who has never left NZ's beautiful shores! I want to guarantee her an amazing time and also for myself to sample the wild and raw Italy I never had a chance to meet.

So the task is whirling around Italy, showing my coussie the big stuff but me getting a feel for the smaller pleasures it offers- the intimate villages, coastlines, activities such as bike rides, boat rides, gentle hikes, festivals, homestays, fab hostels, tour groups.

Is that a challenge or what? If anyone can offer idas for when I'm in Roma - day trips, best beaches, weekend breaks, activities within Roma itself then that would be fab. And of course the rest of Italia.

I'm not on any kind of budget my cousin is on a gap year, so I should be mindful of that.

Thanks in advance - this has been driving me nuts thinking about where to start/finish etc:)
