    Hi, i am so glad to see your message!
    Im probably going on the London/Paris/Rome trip on August.

    I am also excited, but scared since is my first trip alone. Are you going alone?

    And i have some questions to. 1) what unescorted means (we are going to be on our own in Rome) 2) the train ride is nice?? or its kind of cripy? 3) in which hotels in rome and paris are we probablt staying?

    Hope someone answers… Anyway, since i am going before you,i will keep you posted!!

    Questions, questions, questions…

    As far as I can tell unescorted means that someone will get us from the train station in Rome to our hotel…After that we are on our own…Although I’m sure the guide will be able to give us advice on what to see and do…

    I think the only thing included is a pass for transit…So make sure you budget enough money for Rome as you’ll have to pay for everything you want to see and do!

    Thank you Jess! Your right, it realy seems that only the metro pass is included.
    Do you already know in which holtels are you booked?

    Well, I haven’t paid off my balance yet since my trip isn’t till September…
    So when I get my package in July it should give me everything including the hotel info
