New Rome Bus Regulation for 2019 - It was recently announced that the city of Rome will be implementing new regulations for tourist bus access to the historical city center, including the areas near the Colosseum, Forum and Vatican City. These regulations are expected to take effect on Jan 1 2019. At this time, we are uncertain of the impact these regulations will have on our itineraries, but we are closely monitoring the situation and still planning to operate as usual. Due to the uncertainty of these new regulations, the means of transportation and order of your scheduled itinerary may be subject to change.

Some departures are operated with more than one coach. Hotels of similar standard may be substituted.

Some departures may stay at the Amadeus Hotel in Venice instead of the Grand Hotel Principe.

Passengers traveling abroad require a passport valid for six months beyond their travel dates. All travelers are responsible to check if a visa is required for all countries on their itinerary. For visa information, check our Visas page.

Dorsey, The trip was as fabulous or maybe even MORE fabulous than the first trip to Italy that I took with Gate1 in 2014, if that’s even possible. Vanni was an outstanding guide. One of the highlights of the trip was running into my former tour guide, Mercedes, in St. Mark’s Square in Venice. I traveled alone knowing that I’d be in good hands with Gate1. You certainly went above and beyond to see to my comfort when sending a driver to and from my entry and exit airports, and the group of people I traveled with were hilariously fun!

GREAT TRIP!! Wonderful adventure but a lot of walking. The local tour people were very knowledgeable and interested in the group learning about Italy’s treasures. The local director in Rome, Marissa, was especially attentive and related so many interesting tidbits and anecdotes. The Gate1 people were also great and caring – especially Heidi - who phoned us two days in advance to warn us of the impending snow in New York (where we were to connect to the Italy flight) in order to re-route us so we could get to Venice on time. Thanks! This was our third Gate1 trip and we have scheduled our fourth for June of this year.

16 Day Italy with 7 Day Western Med Cruise , September 2016
Dummy Image

Our honeymoon trip to Italy was amazing! A dream come true! We cannot say enough about our tour guide Simone. He knew so much and always had us smiling and ready for our next day of travel; letting us know the weather, the type of shoes to wear and all the little important details. We had just enough time for touring and down time to do our own thing. We're already looking into booking another Gate 1 tour! Thank you so much! It was worth every penny and we cannot wait to travel with your company again!!

I had a wonderful time. We only had 24 people on the tour and they were a nice bunch. It was nice not having to deal with a larger group. There were also some younger people which made it fun. I really enjoyed the cruise and would not hesitate to use the cruise line again

Even though I am not a big fan of cruises, I thought Norwegian's service to be top notch and would use them again to get to areas not easily accessible by other means. We have been to Alaska before and continue to consider it as a top destination.

The trip was fabulous. From the time we landed in Venice, until we departed from the cruise ship, everything went according to the itinerary. The sightseeing venues were spectacular and the side trips to a Tuscan Farm for wine tasting and dining at an authentic Tuscan Restaurant, were memorable. What made the trip so enjoyable and special was our Tour Manager, Vanni. He was organized, timely and extremely knowledgeable of the places we visited. Vanni went beyond the call of duty to make sure a valuable necklace I lost in the Vatican was returned to me before my departure. We met some wonderful people during the tour, but none quite as nice as Vanni.

I will be sure to spread the word about how awesome the trip was to my family and friends. Gate 1 is the #1 Travel Tour Company in my book.

Our trip was amazing, thanks to the efficiency of Gate 1. From the hotel booking to the excursions and Norwegian cruise booking, all were undertaken in a professional manner. Barcelona was one of our favorite cities and the hotel was so conveniently situated as well. The tour company chosen was excellent and as for the cruise, just sheer luxury. We will definitely use Gate 1 again.

12 Day Barcelona with 9 Day Canary Islands Cruise, March 2013

Our trip was perfect. Barcelona is a city with a metro that is easy to navigate and use. Our cruise was beautiful. The Novotel was easily located just a couple of blocks from the metro, with a shopping center directly across the street. We had transport from hotel to the cruise ship which was
most helpful and had no trouble taking public transport back to the Novotel after the cruise.

The Madeira island was just one of the most beautiful places on the earth, the luscious foliage in the parks with statues and water fountains made a statement of the values of the people of this Portugal owned island. The Canary Islands are truly like a paradise. We look forward to working with Gate 1 again in the future!

The trip was great! The transfers and hotel were nice and well located. Half day tour was 6 people on a huge tour bus and we were able to have 4 hours of personal touring. The Norwegian cruise was excellent and the food better than expected. We were quite surprised how good it was! Again, everything was just super.
