Honolulu

— 6 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get a sense of the local culture at USS Arizona Memorial and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay, &more). The adventure continues: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, enjoy the sand and surf at Ala Moana Beach Park, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and have unforgettable encounters with a shark diving experience.

To see reviews, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip maker.

Rome, Italy to Honolulu is an approximately 24.5-hour flight. You'll gain 11 hours traveling from Rome to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Rome in August, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 28°C in Honolulu. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to catch the flight to Lahaina.

Lahaina

— 6 nights

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Haleakala Crater. Do some cultural sightseeing at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church and Whalers Village Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lahaina: Wailea (Ulua Beach, Wailea Beach, &more), Iao Valley (in Wailuku) and Sliding Sands Trail (in Haleakala National Park). Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Ka'anapali Beach, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, stroll around D.T. Fleming Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Napili Beach.

Plan my Lahaina trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
You'll get in some beach time at Papakōlea Green Sand Beach and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Puukohola National Historic Park and Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve. Change things up with these side-trips from Kailua-Kona: Kula Kai Caverns (in Ocean View), Hilo (Rainbow Falls, Liliuokalani Gardens, &more) and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (in Honaunau). There's lots more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, enjoy the sand and surf at Kikaua Point Park, take a leisurely stroll along Kailua Pier, and stroll through Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden.
