Greetings! Χαίρετε! Salve!
On our return from Italy we’ll confirm on use of Face Masks in Museums. Although the Whispering Guide Headset mandate remains in force in most Rome Museums, in Campania it has been widely rescinded (unless you hire an Official Guide). Thankfully entry fees into Pompeii and Herculaneum have been reduced which goes some way towards balancing out the steep increase in Coach and Hotel prices, because of fuel increases. Yes, there will be some refunds, but sadly not as much as we would have liked. No one will be surcharged and we will update Group Leaders individually in due course. Thanks in advance for your forbearance.
As our customer base continues to expand (thank you!), so does the Hellene Cohort!
