Why only Ladies?

We have created this tour based on feedback from our guests over the years. Many women have said that they would love to travel, but don’t have anyone to travel with.

Traveling in a group is less expensive than traveling alone, and often safer, too. Many solo travelers don’t want to be stuck in a group made up of only couples, and they aren’t looking to be harassed by other passengers.


As a woman Tour Director, I feel that my “Ladies Only” tours are a great way for me to share my passion for travel with guests who otherwise may not be willing or able to travel.

In the morning after breakfast we head to the Vatican. With a private guide, you visit private apartments of Julius II, Pinecone Courtyard, Gallery of the Maps, Gallery of the Tapestries and Gallery of Candelabra.

Next you proceed to the Sistine Chapel, where you have enough time to admire Michelangelo's famous frescoes and learn about the intense relationship between Pope Julius II and Michelangelo that drove the artist to create the greatest work of art the world has ever known.

Your tour continues in the vast open spaces of St. Peter’s Basilica where you see the stunning Pieta - a world-famous work of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo, and Bernini's impressive Papal Canopy, a legacy left to the Basilica by the Barberini family.

Day 8

Venice

Breakfast in Hotel

Free time to explore the island in the morning.

**At VaFeltre Tours, we do not believe in selling optional excursions on tour.  However, in Venice, we do have a friend with a very unique option that would need to be booked in advance.  She has a few small boats, and can teach you how to row like a Gondolier!!  There are cicchetti (Venetian appetizers) and Prosecco to reward you for your hard work. While the lesson is not overly strenuous, it does require a degree of balance, coordination, and effort, and we realize that this is not for everyone, which is why we keep it optional.  The cost is 125 Euro per person and can be paid in cash on the tour.  She runs lessons almost daily, and we can book even just one passenger, if one person is interested and the rest of the group is not.

Day 9

Departure

Breakfast in Hotel

Private transportation to Venice Airport

Depending on flight times, there may be time to see more of Venice this morning.
