Rome
Sunfilled days, hot summery nights, traveller you've arrived in Rome. On arrival set your eyes upon Rome with heightened love and appreciation for the great country she's nestled in.

Rome
With a whole day to explore, there's free time to walk amongst the ancient ruins scattered around the city.

Or take to the cute cobbled streets for your fix of Italian food, with lunch specialities like arancini, caprese salad and of course, fresh pasta.

Stay
Ljubljana Resort (or similar)
DAY 6 - Ljubljana to Plitvice
Ljubljana
Bye Ljubljana! We have places to go and people to see, namely, Croatia. And on our way to the Dalmation coast, we have a very important stop with scenery that will blow your mind...
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the UNESCO Plitvice Lakes
Plitvice
Cascading turquoise-hued waters and jewel-like pools await us at Plitvice Lakes. Why this place isn't famous world over as one of the prettiest places in Europe, we have no idea, but for now it's like an extra special secret world. Wander the cute wooden bridges with waterfalls either side and stop for plenty of selfies along the route, as you contemplate the beauty and glory of Mother Nature.

Bellevue Hotel Plitvice (or similar)
DAY 7 - Plitvice to Split

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Let's Split Dinner
EUR 45.00
Split
It's time to get nautical here on the coast of Croatia. Spend the afternoon exploring her sun-soaked, seafront glory. We'll start you off right with a visit to Old Town Split and Diocletian's Palace for a taste of ancient history amongst the cobbled streets. It would be downright wrong not to indulge in some local tastes tonight too, so opt for a traditional Croat dinner to fuel up on before the night ahead. Later no doubt feeling festive, you could hit the town to explore the city by night! 
Stay
Hotel Dalmina (or similar)
DAY 8 - Depart Split
Split
The adventure packed with No Regrets moments has come to an end, oh how much we've seen! With social details swapped and phone numbers exchanged we farewell each other, no doubts with plans for a reunion trip already in full swing. Japan Unrivalled, anyone?

A great introduction into Contiki, with an incredible tour manager and driver. All of the free time add ons were well worth the money. Only downside was the accomodation often being so far away from the city centres and having to pay for taxis a lot of the time and taking public transport etc.

Pros: you get to wake up in a new city every single day, me time optionals are worth it, local guides are knowledgeable and the contiki coach is pretty comfy. Most hotels were also comfy, except the one in rome. Cons: trip feels too short since you arrive at each city in the afternoons and so you aren't even there for a whole day. Also, our trip manager told us the first night we would not be going to the vatican since there wouldn't be enough time to go see Florence. Not only was I really looking forward to seeing the Vatican and was disappointed when they cut that out of the itinerary, it was also a complete bummer that the manager planned our arrival in Florence on a Monday which happened to be a day of the week where everything is closed - so the decision to cut out the Vatican accomplished nothing it seemed. In addition, I had booked with a couple of friends for a triple share room. We arrived in Slovenia only to find out that the hotel could not accomodate that - there were three triple share groups on our trip and ours was the one they could not accomodate. It was fine to adjust for that one night but again, poorly managed on contiki's part since they get all of this info weeks in advance of the trip. All in all, the trip could have been managed way better!
