This group is for you if...

You are a positive person who likes to have fun with other healthy minded singles and couples.

You are computer literate and can easily sign up for events and pay online without assistance.

You are able to communicate well via email without the need to speak to someone on the telephone.

When you attend events, you leave your personal issues at home and bring your upbeat, positive attitude with you. This could be grounds for removal - see below*

You like to have a whole lot of fun and you "always look on the bright side of life"

The goal of every trip is for all attendees to enjoy their time away.
If just one person talks about their personal problems to another, it is energy draining and depressing to that member and it can ruin the whole trip experience for them. As the Brightside Travelers’ Meetup Organizer, I try to do everything in my power to assure a positive, fun time for all attendees and by making it clear to all members that we do not bring our personal problems on vacation with us, we do not complain or act rude to others (especially service professionals such as wait staff, hotel workers, etc.), and we do not need others to take care of us. We are self-sufficient and enjoy having a good time. We always look on the Bright Side!

From St. Peter’s Square at the heart of the Vatican, to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, you’ll see why this “eternal city” is a must-see on every traveler’s list. From Rome, your escorted Italy tour takes you to Pisa and Florence through a gentle landscape of exquisite vineyards, olive groves, and the rolling hills of Tuscany. In Pisa, you’ll see the famed leaning tower and visit the Square of Miracles before heading to Florence – “Cradle of the Renaissance.” Take a guided walking tour of Florence to soak up the world-famous squares and palazzos of the ornate city, including the Duomo and the Baptistry’s bronze door (“Gate of Paradise”). Off to Venice via Verona – the setting for Shakespeare’s fabled tragedy of Romeo & Juliet. You’ll see the ancient Roman Arena where gladiators battled – but today serves as the home of the magnificent Arena Opera Festival. From Verona, you’ll continue to romantic Venice, the city of unparalleled beauty. Take a boat to St. Mark’s square and gaze upon the canals with their gondolas and bridges. You can visit an original glassblowing workshop, discover the narrow alleyways of Venice’s Calli, or its ornate palaces at your leisure for the perfect end to your inspiring Italy tour.
