Full trip itinerary


  • Day 1: Overnight Flight

    Board your overnight flight to Rome, an ancient history hub and home to some of the greatest archaeological sites in the world. There’s also gelato. Lots and lots of gelato.

  • Day 2: Arrive in Rome + Welcome Dinner

    Benvenuto Rome! Italy’s capital city is bursting at the seams with energy. Locals fill the streets, day and night, usually doing something that involves eating or drinking. And how can you blame them when Rome is all big city/ancient ruins, served with a side of spaghetti? Get excited, you and your sorority are gonna hit the ground running.

    In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with your peers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, you’re free to take the party elsewhere!

    Today's highlights:

    • Meet an EF representative at the airport.
    • Transfer to your accommodation and check in.
    • Receive the latest schedule from your Tour Director.
    • Get acquainted with the city on an introduction walk with your Tour Director.
  • Day 3: Tour Rome

    They say all roads lead to Rome, but once you’re there you quickly realize that all roads actually lead to restaurants. Take the morning to satisfy your cravings and sip some espresso before touring the city.

    Today's highlights:

    • Tour the city with a local guide who will show you why Rome is one of the most legendary cities in Europe.
    • Experience the heart of ancient Rome with a visit to the Forum, once a hub of activity for the city.
    • See the ruins of several Roman temples, including the Temple of the Vestal Virgins.
  • Day 4: Free day in Rome + Optional Visit to the Vatican

    Today you get to explore centuries worth of culinary perfection, unbelievable architecture, and local fashion on your own. And let it be said, Rome looks goooood for being 2,000 years old. (It must moisturize.) Shop, eat, drink, and talk like an Italian (with your hands) during your free day. Embrace the culture and indulge in carbs during your last day in the Eternal City.

    Free time suggestions

    Piazza Navona: Head over to Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s best known public squares. Fountains, street performers, shops, restaurants, and so much more. Hangout, sip coffee, and embrace the atmosphere of this outdoor hub.
    Trevi Fountain: Rumor has it, if turn your back to the Trevi Fountain and toss a coin over your shoulder, it guarantees you’ll return to the Eternal City. Throw in a second coin, and you’ll not only come back, but also find love. (Significant other not guaranteed by EF Ultimate Break.)

    A Visit to the Vatican (extra cost)

    Visit the Pope’s house: Vatican City. Take a guided tour of the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica, and get your dose of art history up close and personal—viewing Michelangelo's famed Sistine Chapel frescoes.

    Please note: The Vatican is closed on Sundays. In the event that the itinerary day containing this optional lands on a Sunday for your departure, the optional will take place the day before.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than 90 days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase. This excursion is also non-refundable 95 days prior to departure.

  • Day 5: Travel to Naples Region via Pompeii + Amalfi Coast Day Trip

    As you make your way to the Naples Region, join a local guide for a walking tour of the ancient city of Pompeii, which stands frozen in time after Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, completely destroying the town.

    Afterwards, continue your journey to Positano, the crowned jewel of the Amalfi Coast.

    Today's highlights:

    • Travel back to imperial Roman times and learn about Pompeii, the city covered in volcanic ash.
    • Look up at Mt. Vesuvius, the deadly volcano that annihilated this city almost 2,000 years ago.
    • Experience the buildings, artifacts and even people that have been extremely well preserved over the years.
    • Relax on a scenic pebble beach or shop your way through the colorful streets of Positano.
  • Day 6: Free day in Naples Region + Optional Capri Cruisin

    The day is yours to do as you wish, like enjoying the thing that Naples is known for: that bready, cheesy, tomato sauce topped stuff we call pizza. Or join your Tour Director for an excursion to Capri. Trust us, you haven’t lived lavishly until you’ve cruised around the island of Capri.

    Capri Cruisin' (extra cost)

    Ferry across the Bay of Naples then around the Isle of Capri, gawking at the incredible Arco Naturale and the famous Faraglioni rocks. Then travel by funicular railway to the ancient mountaintop island resort.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

    Today's highlights:

    • Keep your face glued to the window as you take in the passing sights one last time.
    • Board your plane to Greece. Athens, here comes Gamma Phi Beta!
    • Check in to your accommodation.
  • Day 8: Tour Athens

    Welcome to Athens! 2,500 years ago, it was kind of a happening place, and still is today—with fewer people in togas walking around. It’s a vibrant metropolis, and a perfect jumping-off point for your journey through Greece. When the sun goes down, expect to see people socializing in the streets. It’s how they roll.

    Today's highlights:

    • Step back in time while inside the historic Acropolis of Athens with your local guide.
    • See the Propylaea, The Panathenaic (Olympic) Stadium, and a bunch of other structures you’ll need your guide’s help to pronounce.
    • Take in incredible panoramic views of Athens from the citadel’s hilltop vantage point and understand why the ancient city’s name translates to “high city”.
    • Enjoy an authentic Greek included dinner with your sisters.
  • Day 9: Travel to Mykonos

    Head out from Athens to Mykonos by way of ferry. Though also rich in history, this island’s claim to fame is all-out, non-stop, dance-until-the-sun-comes-up nightlife. Between dazzling seascapes, sandy beaches and the best nightlife in the Mediterranean, get ready—you’ve got two big days and two even bigger nights here.

    Today's highlights:

    • Wave goodbye to Athens and set your sights for Mykonos as you board your ferry.
    • Arrive in Mykonos and check into your accommodation.
    • Get to know the area with your Tour Director on a brief walk and start planning out your evening.
    • Spend your free time exploring a few of the islands 800 churches…or maybe just head to one of its 100 bars. You do you.

    Free time suggestions

    Sun of a Beach: The late afternoon is a great time to beach it—a little breeze kicks up and the temperature dips just enough to make it feel great.
    Go to Church: Mykonos’ most famous church, the rock-like Panagia Paraportiani, is usually locked, but the fabulously photogenic whitewashed exterior is a spiritual experience in itself.

  • Day 10: Free Day in Mykonos

    Spend the day in Mykonos doing what you want. Whether that’s a beach day, a food day, a food AND beach day, so be it. In Mykonos there is no wrong choice.

    Today's highlights:

    • Take the morning to rest and recover as you please.
    • Lather on the SPF 75 (skincare is important) and head to the nearest beach.
    • Pick up that bottle of olive oil you promised mom at one of the many shops.

    Free time suggestions

    Party in Paradise: By day, Paradise Beach is a hotspot for sun tanners, sand castle-builders, and partiers alike. By night, the sand is your dance floor and the entire beach erupts into a high-energy party that goes ‘til dawn.
    Super Paradise: Visit Super Paradise Beach, Paradise Beach’s smaller, quainter neighbor. Relax under an umbrella, hang out in a beach bar, and soak up your last day in this island paradise.

  • Day 11: Free Day in Mykonos + Optional Farm Visit, BBQ Feast & Wine

    Spend your last day in Mykonos doing what you want or spend part of it living the farm life and eating your body weight in delicious local foods and unlimited wine.

    Today's highlights:

    • Go on a self-guided food tour and eat your way through the island.
    • Spend all day at the beach again because you’re in freaking Mykonos!

    Free time suggestions

    Ano Mera: In the heart of Mykonos, is the island's only inland town. A highland village with narrow cobbled streets, though not as populated as other parts of Mykonos. Its rustic-chic vibe is a nice break from the beach parties, or just a good excuse to eat at a local taverna before heading to the island's beaches and trails.
    Little Venice: Built in the sixteenth century, back when Pirates were a big threat, residents built balconies overhanging the water as an easy way to quickly load goods on and off ships safely. Now, it serves as a reminder of the past and a pretty snazzy place to score a sea-facing spot at a cocktail bar to enjoy the sunset views.

    Farm Visit, BBQ Feast & Wine (extra cost)

    Explore a local farm, hear its history, and meet its animals. Then, enjoy access to unlimited wine as you help prepare and eat a traditional feast.

    Vegetarian and vegan options available.

  • Day 12: Travel to Athens + Farewell Dinner

    Athens felt neglected, so it’s a good thing you’re heading back to pay it another visit. End the trip with a bang in a city known for stunning views and world-class nightlife. By now, you’re an old pro when it comes to exploring Greece, so we’re giving you the day to adventure in Athens on your own before an included farewell dinner with the group.

    Today's highlights:

    • Take a ferry from Mykonos and say hello again to your old friend, Athens.
    • Revisit some favorite spots from day one in Athens or go on a hunt to find new hidden gems.
    • Check out some of the residential areas for an authentic look at life in Athens.
    • Share some last laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at an included farewell dinner with the group.

    Free time suggestions

    Follow the Light: Flood-lit like a beacon towering over the city, Mount Lycabettus offers a spectacular view of the city. If you’ve been holding out on posting a scenic Instagram post, this is your moment.

  • Day 13: Fly Home

    Antio, filoi! 
    Translation: Goodbye, friends. Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together with your Gamma Phi Beta sisters. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s, “See you later.” The only question is, where?
