There were 21 people on the trip I took. There were 4 married couples,1 mother and son, 2 sets of female friends or sisters and then 7 of us single, both male and female. who paid for a single room and/or
who shared rooms was never discussed.
I did take my 1st RS trip to Belize, Guatemala, Honduras for which I was paired with a stranger. I will take my 4th RS trip to Sicily in Sept.. Letting Rs choose my roommate.


Carole Sklar May 15, 2015 at 02:52 PM

Road Scholar will put you in a room with another woman who is booked for a double room. You do not have to find your own roommate
Connie Solfermoser May 15, 2015 at 04:57 PM

Is that what most of the women on your trip did or did they pay for a single room?
Connie Solfermoser May 15, 2015 at 04:57 PM



Connie Solfermoser May 15, 2015 at 12:42 PM

Are there any single women taking this trip on Oct 31 looking for a roommate?


Pauline Friedman Apr 24, 2015 at 08:46 PM

Anyone planning to take this trip in 2016?


Philip Andrews Sep 25, 2014 at 04:34 PM

My wife and I will be in the class starting on the 31st also. We will be in Sicily the prior two weeks for the Treasures if Sicily and will have a couple of days in between on our own. This will our 3rd and 4th Italy trips and our 6th and 7th with Road Scholar/ Elderhostel.

HI All;Joe Sanders, here. Going on the PUg/Cab trip starting 10/31. Single guy booking economy rate (room share) and would welcome linking up ahead with a potentially compatible room mate. I'm an active guy living in Eugene OR.; like physically active outdoor stuff (hike/bike/kayak/swim) not a lot of museums, really.
Like music (except opera!) and films. POOR SLEEPER so hoping for a quiet man who goes to bed at a predictable time and doesn't seek to be active or put on lights -once we've gone to bed. To the best of my knowledge I DO NOT snore, and would appreciate someone else who does not, either. Any single guys going on this trip, if you wish to respond, we could begin here, and see where it goes for making more substantive advance contact.
Happy upcoming adventure travels! Joe


Carole Sklar Sep 05, 2014 at 04:46 PM

Carrol, I just noticed that I mis
spelled your name. Sorry.
Started packing today. The trip is becoming a reality.


Carole Sklar Aug 19, 2014 at 04:29 PM

How sweet you are, Carol!
You are going to arrive at EWR11:30 AM to go to JFK. Our plane departs 6PM. I know one must be there by 4PM. I believe you will
have a looooong wait. I'll stay with my original plan. A million thanks.
Carrol Meredith Aug 20, 2014 at 10:22 PM

My flight on Alitalia is at 4:00 p.m.
Carole Sklar Aug 21, 2014 at 06:06 AM

I am puzzled. My flight on Alitalia AZ603 is 6PM.
Carrol Meredith Aug 22, 2014 at 07:33 PM

I'm booked on AZ609
Carole Sklar Aug 23, 2014 at 07:32 AM

And so, the mystery is solved. See you in Italy. Good trip.
