Hello. I've booked to go on the solo trip to Italy next month. Ive never been on holiday by myself before. I'm looking forward to it but still a little apprehensive. Would love some feedback both on travelling solo but also anyone who has been on this holiday.

Thanks Jane

Dear JaneB,

I hope some of our regular forum users will have some useful tips on travelling solo. But with regards to feedback on our Classical Italy tour I can recommend looking at our testimonials section on our main website (link below) where people who have actually been on the tour have left their comments:

You'll be surprised how easy it is Jane. I've been travelling alone for a few years now, and have never yet had a holiday where I was left out in the cold. People tend to be friendly and "adopt" single travellers, particularly women, so go for it, stop worrying and enjoy yourself. I haven't been on this holiday but Italy is beautiful! Have a wonderful time.

Hi Jane I am a first time traveller too. It sounds like you might be going on the same holiday as myself Classical Italy on 26th September. Like you I am feeling apprehensive and don't know whether I am looking forward to it or dreading it!! I guess when you have travelled a few times on your own you get more confident. Hopefully we might meet up. I am flying from Birmingham so if you are flying from there perhaps we might meet each other (not quite sure how) but would be nice to have some company on the flight and coach to Arezzo. Look forward to hearing from you. Hazel
