Money Matters

  • Use air miles, coupons or shop around for the best flight prices. You may wish to depart early and tour Europe before you arrive in Italy on June 22.
  • Group flight information will be announced.
  • Some sites will be optional and have admission costs that you will need to pay if you choose to enter. Some examples are: The Borghese Gallery, the Roman Catacombs and any museums or sites that are not included in the itinerary.
  • ATMs are available throughout Italy. Your bank may charge you a slight fee to use the ATM, but getting cash is fast and easy. Major credit cards are accepted in most shops. There is no need for travelers' checks.
  • You will be responsible for the majority of your meals during the Italy program to enable you to choose your diet and budget. Grocery stores, sandwich shops, markets and pizzerias are everywhere. Depending on how and where you eat, you should budget between $30 and $50 per day for food, entertainment, and transport during the travel course.
