- Joe's Vision for this Tour: This is a taste of Italy you won’t soon forget. Starting with the fan-favourite Panorama Italiano tour—which gives travelers an amazing insight into some of Italy’s most famous and beautiful locations—I’ve injected personal touches to help ground what can sometimes seem like a bit of a whirlwind of world-class monuments and museums. You’ll relish in the insider feel of smaller-scale visits and activities that take place off the beaten track, and that often center around food. Italy’s cuisine of course requires no introduction, but in my experience seeking out local specialties (in places intended, above all, for locals) is a surefire and delicious way of getting to know not only food, but a culture as a whole much more intimately.
What You'll Learn
- Independence: Take charge of yourself and your schedule as you gain the courage to navigate new destinations, test your language skills in real-world situations, and manage your time and money.
- Flexibility: Develop skills to adapt and acclimate as you step outside your comfort zone, experiencing the cultural adjustments that come with new places, new foods, dynamic schedules and the wonderful idiosyncrasies of travel.
- Teamwork: Learn respect, communication and collaboration—new settings and shared activities allow you to gain confidence at working together with both familiar faces and new acquaintances.
