Online check-in 

Some airlines may not permit online check-in where flights have been booked by a travel company. Where unavailable to do so online, you will be required to check-in at the airport. Inspiring Vacations cannot check-in online on behalf of our customers.

Rome Sightseeing
Due to restrictions limiting ticket availability, particularly for the months March - October, entrance to the Colosseum in Rome has been permanently removed from this tour.  Visits to the Colosseum may still be possible during the low season (November - February) but remain subject to availability.  When Colosseum tickets are not available for any departure, entrance to the Imperial Forums will be included as an alternative.
