More about Greece

More about Italy

What's not to love about Italy! From its ancient monuments and treasure-laden museums, to iconic cities, stunning coastal villages and magnificent mountain ranges. And of course the cuisine! You could literally eat your way from Rome to Florence and Venice. Gelato ice cream was invented in Italy and there are over 200 shapes for Italian pasta. Pizza was first created in Napoli in 1860 and yes, calzone is simply folded up pizza!

More about Turkey Discover Turkey

Turkey has to be one of the tastiest countries in the Middle East. For starters, its delicious cuisine takes its cues from Europe and Asia. Then there's the extraordinary landscapes and stunning historic sites. You're probably going to want to explore Istanbul, pay your respects in Gallipoli, see the thermal pools of Pamukkale, discover the underground world of Cappadocia and more, but there are two more things you should do in Turkey:
  1. Drink a real Turkish coffee. This isn't just a heart-starter in the morning, it's a ritual that should be savoured and appreciated in a local cafe.
  2. Try a Turkish bath, or hammam. You'll be steamed, scrubbed and pounded in the quest for wellness, but it will be worth it and it's one of those things you need to do at least once in your life!
This amazing package takes you to Rhodes, where you have a 7 nights in one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The next week is spent cruising from Athens to the exciting ports of Izmir and Istanbul in Turkey. Then stop at Corfu in Greece and Bari, on the southeastern coast of Italy, before returning to Athens in time to fly back to Australia.

Safety measures and peace of mind.

The wellbeing and safety of our passengers and staff is always a priority. My Travel Experience is committed to ensuring your peace of mind with customer-friendly booking practices and enhanced health and safety standards on our trips.

Safe travel requirements:
International regulations are changing as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. Travellers may need to be prepared to take a COVID-19 test prior to departure from Australia and be able to provide proof of their fully vaccinated status.

Local authorities, as well as airlines and cruise companies, may have additional requirements in place for departures. We recommend you check these in advance and again before arriving at the airport. If you're transiting through other destinations during your trip, check on any local requirements at each transit destination and confirm any specific requirements for onward travel with your airline.

Only get tested through verified official testing centres. Scammers are taking advantage of travellers by charging for fake tests. If you're unsure where to get tested, contact the local health authority for advice.

You may still need to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result even if you've been vaccinated. If you've had a COVID-19 vaccine, you should carry your vaccination certificate along with your negative PCR test results while travelling from/to Australia, especially if you have one or more transit stops. Some destinations may ask for proof of testing and vaccination before allowing you to transit through or cross their border.

These guidelines are subject to change as the global situation evolves. The enforcement of certain measures (i.e. covid testing, social distancing, mask-wearing etc.) will vary in different regions. It's your responsibility to check with local health authorities for best practices in their region and ensure that you are eligible to travel.
