Full trip itinerary

Itinerary

  • Day 1: Overnight flight

    Board your overnight flight, bound for Italy. Get ready to eat spaghetti on penne on linguine on fettuccine on gnocchi on ravioli on chocolate gelato (not literally, but maybe literally).

  • Day 2: Arrive in Rome + Welcome Dinner

    Welcome to Rome, Italy’s capital city that 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 pasta, pizza, gelato, coffee, and wine are everywhere you look? Rome is all big city/ancient ruins, served with a side of spaghetti.

    In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers 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 accommodations and check in.
    • Meet your fellow travelers as they arrive.
    • Take a guided tour of some top sights around Rome.
  • 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: 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 5: Free day in Naples Region or Optional Capri Excursion

    The day is yours to do as you wish. Like enjoy 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.

  • Day 6: Travel to Rome Airport + Fly to Athens

    Today is the day you head to Athens! Transfer from your hotel to the airport in Rome and prepare yourselves for the Acropolis, the Parthenon and MORE Greek food!

  • Day 7: 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 the 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 in the historic Acropolis of Athens with your local guide.
    • See the Propylaea, the 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”.
  • Day 8: Set Sail for Naxos + Included Dinner

    Leave the sunsets of Athens behind for the ancient history of Naxos…and more sunsets. Set your sights on Mt. Zas, AKA Mt. Zeus, the tallest mountain in the Cyclades, perfect for hiking and taking in some major views. Oh, and it’s supposedly home to the cave Zeus (yes, THE Zeus) grew up in. Does this make Zeus the original cave man?

    Today's highlights:

    • Say goodbye to Athens, and head to the next stop on your adventure: Naxos.
    • Check into your new accommodation, and thank the Greek gods and goddesses that a place this beautiful exists.
    • Join your Tour Director for a hand-picked group activity, go lone-wolf and explore the island on your own, or with your fellow travelers. Wolves are a pack animal, so the analogy still works.
    • Enjoy an included dinner.
  • Day 9: Explore Naxos

    Good news! You have the entire day to hang out in Naxos, a paradise fit for the Grecian gods, goddesses, and modern-day travelers alike. Look to the past with the island’s most ancient and historic sites, or look to the horizon from a beach chair with a bottle of wine and your favorite playlist. Or, look to the nearest taverna and fill up on feta.

    Today's highlights:

    • Spend time on one (or two, or three) of Naxos’ best beaches. Agios Prokopios and Aliko are some of our favorites.
    • Wander around the streets of Naxos’ old town, Chora. The island’s capital and main harbor is also casually home to a huge Venetian castle. That’s right. A Venetian castle on a Greek island. Makes sense to us.
    • Sample freshly baked Greek pastries like spanakopita and baklava in Chora’s local bakeries.

    Free time suggestions

    Temple time: Visit the ancient Temple of Sangri, one of the earlier Ionic temples ever built, made entirely of Naxian marble. This place was built in 530 BC, and a few of the original columns are still standing. Clearly that marble didn’t skip leg day.
    Cave in: Get your blood-pumping during a hike up Mt. Zas. Then, check out the mouth of the cave Zeus is said to have grown up in. Is it just us, or do you have the sudden urge to watch “Hercules”?

  • Day 10: Travel to Athens + Farewell Dinner

    Back to the azure waters of the Aegean, this time returning to Athens via ferry. Once you’re back on land, enjoy one last dinner with your group.

    Today's highlights:

    • Board your ferry to Athens.
    • Share some laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at an included Farewell Dinner.
  • Day 11: Fly Home

    Antio, filoi!
    Translation: Goodbye, friends. Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. 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?

    This trip was everything I wanted and more! The extra activities were so incredible and I’m so thankful that our TD Marios cared enough to plan them for us! The food was incredible, the views, all of the boat rides, and all of the great friendships made. I would do this trip a thousand times if I could!
