Ciao! Have you really decided to go on a trip to Italy? Lucky you! Even though Italy is slightly smaller than the size of California, you can spend weeks in Italy and experience only a fraction of what it has to offer. This is because here is so much more history in Italy than in the United States. You will be able to see remnants left from over 2,000 years ago by the Etruscans and Romans, so you don’t have to go far before you see something significant.
The city of Rome is an enchanting fusion of ancient and modern. High speed trains whiz by 2,000 year old ruins, and a population of almost 3 million people harmoniously live side by side with artifacts like the Colosseum and the Pantheon. With such a rich historical presence, it’s easy to focus on the ancient when you visit Rome, but try to incorporate some modern experiences into your itinerary to create a balance and don’t get stuck in the past!
Aloha! Welcome to paradise! The word paradise means something different for everyone, but for me it means a place where I can forget my worries and relax in a warm, sunny environment with a drink in my hand. It paints a pretty picture, doesn’t it? Hawaii is a great place to relax, but there are some one of a kind experiences and adventures to be had here too!
Aloha! I am very excited you are using my itinerary to plan your amazing vacation! Like you, I only have a few weeks of vacation and I want to make the most of my vacations as possible. The focus of my vacation itinerary is to maximize time and experiences while trying to keep expenses as low as possible. Below is the exact itinerary I used when I visited Hawaii, and as you read on, you will discover that I stayed in Honolulu for a few days and then took Norwegian’s Pride of America cruise to 3 of the other Hawaiian Islands. I felt a cruise was a great way to maximize my time and experiences because it travels while I sleep and offers a variety of Hawaiian-themed entertainment and food. To read more about why I chose Norwegian’s Pride of America, please read my Hawaii Travel Guide.
