Python Object-Oriented Python Advanced Objects Dream Vacation

Need help with the question

Below is a class called DreamVacation that holds a location and list of activities. Create a @classmethod called rome that will return a new DreamVacation instance with cls() with the following arguments: location = 'Rome' and activities list = ['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato'].

Hint: The classmethod should take cls instead of self as an argument.

dream_vacation.py
class DreamVacation:
    def __init__(self, location, activities):
        self.location = location
        self.activities = activities
    @classmethod
    def rome(cls):
        info=f"location = '{location}' and activities list = {activities}"
        return cls(info)

Nothing named "location" or "activities" has been defined in this method. But all you need here is to pass the specific values as arguments when creating the class instance:

    @classmethod
    def rome(cls):
        return cls('Rome', ['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato'])
