DAY 1 - Arrive Barcelona
Barcelona
Make your way to the hostel and check in, then why not take advantage of your time in this great city to see Las Ramblas, the famous Sagrada Familia or the iconic Park Guell.
DAY 2 - Barcelona to Nice
Barcelona

Good morning travellers, rise and shine!  Meet up with your Trip Manager this morning and your new Contiki Squad today as we say farewell to the home of Gaudi, sangria and year-round sunshine! 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Scenic drive along the Côte d'Azur
Nice

Unwind on the coach, listen to some music and chill with the squad as you take in the rustic beauty of Provence, known for its pretty landscapes of lavender, sunflowers and wild herbs. Then we hit the rugged coast line of the stunning Côte d’Azur. Follow the beautiful sapphire waters past the movie-star glamour of Cannes (famous for its annual film festival), to the palm trees and sun-soaked shores of Nice.

Stay
Beach Hostel Nice (or similar)
DAY 3 - Nice including French Riviera and Monaco
Nice

Missing an opportunity to see this part of the world up close and personal would be criminal. Speaking of things you shouldn't miss, this region is famous for lavender honey, aioli & rosé wine; all 3 in one meal should be your mission. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit a French perfumery
See the Royal Palace in Monaco and the Monte Carlo casino
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Monaco Dinner
EUR 36.00
French Riviera

Fragonard Perfumery in the French Riviera, now there's a place to check out! And stock up on perfume, obviously. Especially given the greatly discounted prices and authenticity of buying in France. 

Monaco

Please tell us you didn't throw away all of your pennies on perfume today? Because you're going to want a few spare coins tonight so you can play fancy. We're visiting the Monte Carlo Casino & the Royal Palace in Monaco.  

Nice

After a night on the blackjack table it's back to the coast and to bed, the next part of the adventure starts tomorrow. 

Stay
Beach Hostel Nice (or similar)
DAY 4 - Nice to Cinque Terre
Nice

Having exhausted all our hilarious Nice puns, we'll head south in search of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Cinque Terre.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Catch a train along the Cinque Terre
Visit the town of Monterosso
Cinque Terre

Welcome to Cinque Terre, the sexiest collection of fishing villages on the planet. Armed with your rail pass, spend the day absorbing the dramatic beauty of this place, but we suggest you get out for a hike, a food crawl, some vino or all of the above.

Stay
Ala Bianca Hotel Ameglia (or similar)
DAY 5 - Cinque Terre to Florence via Pisa
Cinque Terre

Have an extra coffee before we make tracks this morning, the extra energy hit will serve you well as we're gallivanting around Italy swooping from one wow moment to another.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Discover the Secrets of Michelangelo's Florence – see Ponte Vecchio, the Medici Palace & much more on our locally guided walking tour of Florence
Learn about Florence's leather craft with a demonstration
See the Leaning Tower of Pisa
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Tuscan Evening
EUR 42.00
Pisa

As if we were going to leg it to Florence without a sneaky side trip to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Depriving you of the chance to perfect the holding-up-the-tower shot would be down right criminal. 

Florence

We are now nesting under the Tuscan sun in the breathtaking city of Florence. The adventures commence pronto with a tour of the city, a leather craft demo and many sites. Conserve some energy for the evening of Tuscan feasting and disco dancing on offer.

Stay
Autopark Hotel (or similar)
DAY 6 - Florence to Sorrento
Florence

After farewell-ing Florence this morning we will journey along the boot of Italy until we reach the globally adored town of Sorrento for some blissed out coast hangs. 

Sorrento

"So so so so in love with Sorrento" are about the only words you'll muster up tonight as you sit seaside watching the sunset in this town of beauty.

Stay
Sisters Hotel Piano di Sorrento (or similar)
DAY 7 - Sorrento
Sorrento

It simply wouldn't be a trip to Sorrento without a side note to...

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Day trip by boat to the Isle of Capri
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Cruise around the Island of Capri (weather permitting)
EUR 28.00
Capri

…the island of Capri! We'll sail over the Tyrrhenian Sea taking in the glorious waters and majestic beauty of coastal Italy. Once on Isle of Capri, you can roam the hillside town of Anacapri, sip too many cups of coffee, and marvel at how the cliffs meet the sea.

Stay
Sisters Hotel Piano di Sorrento (or similar)
DAY 8 - Sorrento to Rome via Pompeii
Sorrento

Another glorious Italian day awaits us. Iconic sites and ancient history will keep our jaws at floor level until our heads hit our pillows.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Scenic drive along the coast
See Mount Vesuvius
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Rome of the Emperors and Gladiators including the Colosseum
EUR 30.00
Pompeii Guided Walking Tour
EUR 24.50
Pompeii

After less than an hour gazing lovingly out of our windows at the Amalfi Coast, it will be time for a stop. Here in the ancient city of Pompeii you will have the chance to partake in a guided walking tour taking in Roman city remains.

Rome

Today's roadtrip beauty is never-ending as we take in the volcanic beauty of Mt. Vesuvius en route to Rome. On arrival in the open time capsule that is Italy's capital, your Trip Manager will get you straight into the sightseeing. The Roman Forum and Colosseum can both be ticked off your list should you be in the mood for a little history.  

Stay
The Yellow Hostel (or similar)
DAY 9 - Rome with Vatican City
Rome
Rome wasn't built in a day but we sure can try and see it all in one day!
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Pasta Cooking Class
EUR 49.00
Vatican Tour
EUR 35.00
Vatican City
When in Rome...take an optional guided tour of the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Religious or not, the Vatican's Italian Renaissance church will send shivers down your spine.
Rome
Snap pink azaleas by the Colosseum, throw coins in fountains and sip espresso in a pretty street watching Italian life float by.
Stay
The Yellow Hostel (or similar)
DAY 10 - Depart Rome
Rome

The best week of your life has come to an end - you have our complete sympathy. If anyone understands the pain of ended travels, it's us. And your new Contiki collective. Hug it out after breakfast & make plans to reunite outside of Rome.

Really pushy tour guide who pressured us into doing the add ons and lied about what would be available to do if we opted not to do an add on. Add ons were charged at a different price than was listed when the tour was purchased. Safety concerns not taken seriously and barely addressed in the hostels. Definitely not worth the money spent on the tour. Could have had the same experience, or better, for much less money if I had booked it on my own. Also- forced into completing a survey towards the end of my tour despite not wanting to complete it. The survey took up time on my trip and caused me to miss a lunch. When filling out the survey we were pressured/guilted not to give anything lower than an 8 out of 10.

Contiki is great. And a great experience. #noregrets. you get to see so much in such a short time. Coach was very comfortable with charger ports everywhere so my phone was never dead! Lol. The driver was great driving around those narrow streets and very kind. Next time I’ld love to do another on for a long duration and one where I’m able to stay in the accomodation a little longer and take a friend with me to share the experience together.

Contiki has really cheapened. This tour is so unbelievably rushed ! You have no time for anything. The “breakfast” included is a joke (bread and butter, cereal. The accomidation is mainly small hostels. If you’re not from Australia or New Zealand you are not part of a “clique”. These tours are for unexperienced travelers. All my extra adds ons and hidden fees added up to over $600 -$1000 ! Save your money and book your OWN TRIP

I purchased the Mediterranean quest. there was not enough time spent at destinations and the whole trip felt rushed. there was no time to enjoy Pompeii, the Colosseum or Monaco which for each we literally had about 1 hour to experience also we were expected to see 5 towns in 4 hours in cinqe terre, which was impossible.

My only recommendation for Contiki overall would be to provide safer, cleaner and better located accommodations for Med Quest travellers. Also, the included mess were horrible and didn’t give me an authentic experience for the places I visited. My tour manager was boring and had zero enthusiasm about the trip. For the meeting point before the Contiki trip starts, have us TOUR that area. Ex if we’re meeting in Barcelona, Spain, why not include that area in the itinerary to tour and learn more about?
