Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Milan. On arrival, you'll be met and transferred by private car to your hotel in the heart of the city. You'll then have the rest of the day to relax or explore the city after your flight.

  • This morning, your guide will meet you at the hotel for a three-hour walking tour of Milan, including Leonardo da Vinci's 'Last Supper'. In the afternoon, explore more of the city on your own. We recommend the Pinacoteca di Brera art gallery, or you could enjoy some of Milan's world-class shopping.

  • Today you'll take a day trip out of Milan to the scenic hill town of Bergamo. You have free time to stroll the historic old town and visit the cathedral before returning to Milan later in the day.

  • Today you'll leave Milan and enjoy a day trip to the stunning Lake Maggiore on the way to Lake Como. A private boat will take you to the beautiful palaces and gardens of the Borromean Islands, which you will tour with your private guide. You continue to Como town on Lake Como after the visit.

  • This morning you'll explore the lake with your private guide and boat driver. One of the highlights will be a visit to Villa Balbianello, a stunning lakeside retreat where the James Bond film 'Casino Royale' was filmed. After this you'll head to the picturesque town of Bellagio, often referred to as the 'pearl of the lake', to enjoy some free time before heading back down the lake to your hotel.

  • Today you'll have a full day at leisure to explore more of the lake's highlights. A great option is to take the public ferry north to the charming towns of Varenna and Menaggio. You could even stop off in Tremezzo to visit the beautiful gardens of Villa Carlotta.

  • Today, you will depart Lake Como by private car and head east to Verona, a journey of approximately two hours. Your Verona hotel is located right in the heart of the city and is a perfect place to start exploring.

  • Your driver will meet you at the hotel today and transfer you to Verona Airport for your flight home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
