Does anyone know a vacation website where I can find an all inclusive trip to Italy?
Rome specifically, but some sort of tour would be okay as well. I am not planning right away, but would love to look through some all inclusive vacations. I have already looked on some of the major travel sites (travelocity, orbitz, yahoo travel) and didn’t find any vacation packages. Please and thank you!
I booked mine through roadtoitaly.com
Check them out, perhaps you’ll find what you’re looking for there. They have custom options. I booked a tour for 2 weeks around northern part of Italy and it included land and air fare – portorage, taxes, airport transfers, etc. Made my trip hassle free and easy. They have great tours such as Cosmos, Globus, and Tafalgar. If you scroll down, you’ll find more European tours. You can have something very intense or something light in terms of constantly walking and looking. But they are tours. If you want a vacation – as in rest time – this is probably not it. Hope this helps. Best of luck.
Trip to Italy? All Inclusive?
Looking for a family vacation to Italy. (Naples, Rome, Venice.) Any recommendations for all inclusive resorts? Or any advice on planning a trip there?
I recommend taking a look at http://www.virgin-vacations.com/Europe_Vacations/Italy_Vacations.aspx for vacation packages to Italy, and also http://www.virgin-vacations.com/articles/allinclusive-vacationpackage.aspx If nothing else, something to look at and perhaps give you ideas, however I have found Virgin Vacations to be very helpful in the past.
TOUR OPERATOR TO ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE IN MEXICO?
I’M FROM ITALY.
I WOULD TO SAY THE BEST TOUR OPERATOR TO AN ALL INCLUSIVE VACATION PACKAGE IN MEXICO WITH DEPART FROM MIAMI ON NEXT AUGUST.

I would call Fox World Travel at 888-369-8785. Great travel agency and works with multiple tour operators for All-Inclusive Mexico packages. Here’s their web site: http://www.gofox.com.
Does Italy have any all-inclusive resorts?
Looking to vacation one on of Italy‘s beaches with my 2-year old daughter while my husband attends Lamborghini training in April. I have never traveled to Europe and am not sure what to expect. However, I have been to Mexico and LOVE all–inclusive resorts. Room, food and drinks included. Does Italy have any of these all–inclusive types of resorts?
Yes many google them in Calabria, Sicily, Puglia, Sardinia, Campania, you can find as much as you want
Can you recommend any all inclusive European vacations? ?
My husband and I are interested in traveling to Europe over the next few years. We would like to go for a week at a time, so it would be several trips over the next decade or so.
We would like to go on a guided tour/vacation, where the accommodations, tours, transportation, and possible interpreters are all included in the price. Basically, we want to take the guess work out of traveling to foreign lands where we don’t speak the language. (ie Italy, France, Spain, Greece, etc)
What groups/companies do you recommend??
The only ones I know of are “Vacations by Disney.” They seem overpriced (and I am sure they are, knowing that corporation!). Can you recommend another accredited company that has better prices, and are trustworthy?
Please, DO NOT reply with your name and tell me to call you directly. If you have an accredited company with a website, I will check your site out only. If you reply with a “spam answer” I’ll merely give you a low rating.
I agree with Redhead, the only way to travel around Europe is on your own. Reason for this is that Europe is expensive, and all that service that you ask for is going to add a hefty premium to the tour price. (Think 40 % and more.) A tour for 2 people going for 7 days that might cost you 3500 USD if you do it on your own will cost you at least 5000 USD if you do it with a tour company.
I’m a frequent traveller and I have been to plenty of exotic places and doing a 1-week-trip from the US to Europe on your own is a piece of cake.
There is plenty of information available online, even very small hotels have English-language websites and online-booking options.
Plus you are not going to see much in a week. A week is just enough time to see Paris or London. So you a book a flight to say, Paris, reserve a hotel online (10 % down payment via credit card) and then get a public transport pass to the Paris Metro system that is valid for a week. How hard is that? Not difficult at all, I can assure you.
Going for a week to Paris or London is no more of a problem than organising a trip to LA, SF or New York for the average US-American.
All you need is a decent guidebook to help you plan it all and to make head or tail out of the sights.
Guidebook series that I know to be good are Rick Steves’, Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Let’s Go. Go to your local book store and check them out.
Aside from being a guidebook writer, Rick Steves’ also has his own travel agency organising tours in Europe. These tours are known as being a bit on the budget side, following the company’s philosophy that people who just want to see Paris do not necessarily want to shell out for 4-star luxury hotel accomodation, but are just as happy in small 2-star hotels and pensions.
The website is http://www.ricksteves.com . The site is also a goldmine of information for people who want to travel independently, so take a very good look at every page.
As for cost of travelling independently, the minimum budget should be 50 EUR per day and person plus flight tickets to Europe. This is a very frugal budget, if you are used to your small comforts you should bring about 100 EUR per day and person. The key to travelling cheap are two things: Sleeping cheap, maybe on a camping site, in a hostel, a holiday appartment or in a small family pension and preparing your own food. Instead of eating out you buy supplies in the supermarket and cook or make sandwiches. Eating out for dinner or lunch will set you back around 20 EUR per person, if you cook or make sandwiches you easily can get by on 5 EUR for a meal – and that serves two people.
Another company that I know of are Viking River Cruises. They organise River Cruises in Europe and Asia. IMO they are a bit pricey for what they offer, but from your description they might suit you best.
There are also a couple of companies aiming for the young crowd (college student age), Busabout, EF and Contiki are among them. Can’t hurt you to look at them too, I guess.
