Trafalgar’s At Leisure packages allow a traveler to enjoy a visit to one location or area of a country, with some selected sights to see as well as some unscheduled time, where you can relax or wander the locality at your own pace.

Sometimes, a vacation isn’t about seeing as many sights as possible, but just getting away for a while and taking it easy. The At Leisure packages are a great option if you want a more relaxed vacation. Here are some examples of what Trafalgar offers:Continue reading

Getting the “Insider Experience” in Italy with Trafalgar Tours
