Incredible Italy Trip of a Lifetime

Travel for Teens is the best decision I’ve ever made! Our Italy Explorer trip was planned out perfectly and executed by the kind, caring and fun Counselors. We felt like a big family on the trip. From eating pasta in Venice to a incredible beach in Monterosso, it was a experience like no other. But what really struck me is the way the staff handled a unfortunate situation in Florence that was out of the companies control. The hostel we were originally planned to stay at turned out to be not up to the companies high standards, so the trip counselor, office staff in Philadelphia and the CEO of the company quickly created a plan of action to move all 25 of us to a different hotel in Florence. Even with this hiccup, the experience of Florence was not ruined but only improved! While the senior director figured out a new hotel, we didn’t skip a beat in enjoying Florence. I am so glad that I found a company I can trust and continue to love. Thank you Travel for teens!

Italy Photography Trip

My whole life I have wanted to travel the world and experience new things. Once I found Travel for Teens I was so excited to try it out! My first trip was the Italy photography workshop and it changed my life in a great way. At first I was super nervous because I was going to a foreign country with strangers, but I quickly connected with them on our 9 hour group flight. I had the best time with my new friends doing the planned activities as well as the new photography challenges we had each day. The trip really brought out my love for photography and travel. I have traveled with TFT every summer since!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't second guess and just go for it! I almost never went on the Italy photography trip because I didn't know anyone. I had the best time on that trip and made a bunch of friends who I'm still close with today!

Italy Trip with TFT

I went on the 19 day Ultimate Italy trip and it was the most amazing trip of my life. Everything about the trip was perfect, you got to see all the things in the big cities like the Colosseum in Rome or the beautiful beaches in the smaller Cinque Terre. The counselors on the trip were very friendly, organized everything very well and not a day went by were the whole group didn't have a blast. And if you are as big of a foodie as me the meals will not disappoint, they knew of all the best local restaurants so you will constantly be telling yourself that that was one of the best meals you have ever eaten. The hotels/hostels we stayed at were all also very nice and well kept so that was definitely a bonus also. If you are thinking about going on on a trip with TFT to Italy, don't think about it do it... you will not regret it and it will be the trip of a lifetime.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Pesto Lasagna, While visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa we ate at this restaurant right next to it and sat outside. I had never heard of Pesto Lasagna but saw it on the menu and had to try it and It was one of the best meals of my life, I hope to one day eat the same meal with the same view.

Best summer ever!

For my graduation present last year, I was grateful enough to travel to Italy with TFT! I was a bit nervous about traveling across the world without knowing anyone beforehand, but the staff and my peers were all so friendly and welcoming! Everything about this trip was so FUN, exciting, and very well organized. From the airport designations to the travel itinerary, everything was smooth sailing. There was always something new for us to do/see which was my favorite part of the trip. Although relaxing, it was fulfilling to be kept busy with a new culture to explore. I highly recommend not only the Amalfi trip, but any trip with TFT! They are an extremely trust worthy company and my parents were confident that I was being left in good hands. This trip was hands down one of the best trips I have been on and am excited to be traveling with TFT again soon!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I was really nervous about traveling across the world without knowing anyone else beforehand. However, everyone on TFT staff and my peers were all so friendly and welcoming. We all still keep in touch to this day!

Classic Italy

There are so many amazing places in Italy, it seems impossible to see all the famous and breathtaking sights in one trip, right? WRONG! I had always wanted to travel throughout Italy to get a chance to explore both the countryside of Tuscany and the beaches of Cinque Terre, and this trip was the perfect way to do just that. The activities on this trip ranged from a vast variety of making homemade pesto in a local Italian restaurant in Monterosso to climbing up the steep and slanted stairs of the Duomo in Florence. Whether I was hiking along the breathtaking views of the Cinque Terre trails or attempting to take a clever photo holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I was never found without a smile on my face. The friendships I made on this trip are still strong to this day, and the memories and experiences were unforgettable.

An Amazing Experience

This trip to Italy was such an amazing time. From swimming in the Mediterranean Ocean for the first time, to eating true Italian cuisine, this was such a great trip. I saw and experienced a whole different culture from mine. Modes of transportation, housing and the food were all different from what I was used to. I got to see the magnificent, old ruins of the ancient city Pompeii, and explore the cities of Positano, Amalfi, and Capri. I got to eat true Italian gelatto and make and paint my own ceramics. I loved swimming in the water on the pebble beach looking at the volcano in the distant. I learned more skills on working with peers and in a group to figure out the best way to complete tasks and time management. Also, I met some really cool people! I cannot wait to go back to Italy again one day.

What would you improve about this program?
A little more educational experience! I loved the ceramics class we took with a local artist and more of that would be really great.

Italy Service and Adventure

This trip gave the opportunities to have the summer of my lifetime! We started out with a week of community service in the gorgeous setting the Cinque Terre. During this week we amounted 20 hours of community service, but still had time to participate in different activities within the different towns. From there the group moved south- from Tuscany to Sorrento, even stopping in Rome for a few days. The itinerary was jammed packed with different planned activities for us to participate in, as well as built in free time for us to have the ability to explore the towns. The counselors were amazing on this trip, making sure that we were safe at all times, while still giving us time to explore on our own! They were pretty cool and it was super easy to talk to them about ANYTHING going on, if anything happened :)
