Where in the world: 10-day Italy: Rome & Amalfi Coast
Book by: Until Sold Out
Departure Dates: Year-round departure dates (Price depends on departure date)
Why I Like It: This package, Inexpensive Italy for Independent Travelers, is a great, great deal. Round-trip international airfare from New York to Rome and all taxes/fees are included. Also included: 6n accommodations (2n Rome & 4n Sorrento), breakfast daily, and a seven-day car rental including unlimited mileage. The price is better than any tour package but is irresistable to independent travelers. Just a few of the many wonderful things to see and do include exploring the Piazza Tasso in Sorrento, hiring a boat to go to the Blue Grotto, seeing Mount Vesuvius, driving along the Amalfi Coast, taking a ferry to Capri, toss a coin in the famous Trevi Fountain, touring the Colosseum. Pantheon, and Forum, exploring the Rome Catacombs–if you dare!, and taking a day trip to Pompeii or Naples, both of which are 45-minutes away from Sorrento.

Forget outrunning the police in some parts of Italy as they drive Lamborghinis!
