Final Group Meeting for 2017 Rome Trip

We will hold our final group meeting on Monday, February 27, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in room 138 at RHS.

Please make every attempt to be present, as we will be providing final departure tips/info and answering a variety of questions.  We will also be sharing tentative daily itineraries for the days we are alone in Rome. JP and I are exploring a variety of options to suit the needs/wants of the group.

In the mean time, please check out some of the links we have provided on this site from Rick Steve’s and from ACIS about preparing for overseas travel.

And if possible, please review this summary letter, which offers a lot of things worth knowing before we depart!



Tipping Info

I am including a link to the mailing I received from ACIS re: tipping our Tour Manager & Bus Driver.

The amount is calculated at $10/day ($6 for Tour Manager & $4 for Driver) for 5 days we’d have their services, for a total of $50 per traveler.

I am hoping to cover this cost from a Travel Scholarship fund we have here at RHS.  I will provide more details at our last meeting, but basically a check will be issued to each RHS traveler, and then the tipping amount will be re-collected by me to distribute at the end of our trip.

For those travelers that are not RHS students, $50 will be due (payable to me) ASAP.
