Our girlfriends are special people. They are the ones that keep you grounded. They pacify your panic attacks and stand by you through those tough times. They are genuinely happy for you and will punch that heart-breaker any day for you! We all have our set of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha with us. My all time favorite scene in the Sex and the city 1 was when Charlotte swears at Ben for not turning up at the wedding- right when her water broke! That is what our girlfriends are!
Now, for the zillionth number of time, me and my girls have been planning a girls get together and every time I end up making the perfect plan and never going. Somebody gets busy, somebody goes on a vacay, somebody switch jobs, the list goes on! In the process, I end up researching a lot on places and tours. This is when I stumbled on Backpacker Co. One of the best trip organizers out there ensuring a safe and fun-filled vacation. Decided to do a review on this site and their girlfriend getaway package today.
The trip is named as Italian Chicks! I like the way it sounds!! It is a 10 day long schedule. They claim this:
“This one’s for you girls who want to let their hair loose, stumble upon the hidden treasures of this city, be spontaneous and go home with an even bigger appetite for wanderlust! What awaits you? The architectural wonders of Rome, the marvels of Florence, the dreamlike canals of Venice, the fashion capital of Milan along with plenty of local experiences!”
I like the Milan part VERY much!!
- Continental breakfasts.
- A shared shuttle transfer to pick you up from the airport in Rome and drop to your welcoming hostel.
- Transport between each city by trains.
- Accommodation in centrally located and well recommended youth hostels in 6-8 bed dorms with en suite facilities wherever possible.
- A 48-hr Hop on Hop off bus ride in Rome which takes you to the city’s highlights. You get to choose where you’d like to hop off the bus and catch up on it from any of the route’s stops.
- Half day tour to MuranoBurano!
- Flights and Visa: we have our agents who could assist you with the same, and we will put you in touch with them directly, so there is transparency and you could avail of the best fare available.
- Local City taxes
- Meals not mentioned in the plan.
Now, there are some reasons why this would be an ultimate girls trip. To begin with, you will tick the Colosseum off your bucket list. The remarkable architecture of the Pantheon, the largest masonry vault ever built, is a must see. I am a huge history buff!! How can I miss the Vatican City, a separate sovereign city run by the Pope. Stroll through the Vatican museums & Sistine chapel would be awesome- Dan Brown Hangover!!
Make a trip to Pisa and take the picture holding up the Leaning tower! Big huge bucket list tick!! The wine tasting at Florence is going to leave some ever-lasting memories!!
Some best things I like in the trip is plenty of time they allow you to wander in the street and meet the locals. Not many tour packages allow that! That is the real essence of going on a trip, isn’t it?
Going to Venice and taking the amazing gondola ride would be my biggest wish come true!! I am very much excited about the Serraville outlet mall that offers 70% off on major brands!! In 10 days, I’m sure I will fall in love with the place. The package comes for about Rs.64,000/- per person plus 3.50% GST. It starts on 6th Sept 2015 and ends on 15th Sept 2015.
Girls, I have my heart all out for this trip! Hope we soon reach a decision on this!! Meanwhile, if you find my review useful, you can have a look at thebackpackerco.com
