Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • 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 after your flight or start exploring the city.

  • 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 on to Como town on Lake Como after the visit.

  • This morning you'll set off with your private guide and boat driver to explore the lake. 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.

  • Departing from Lake Como today by private car you will 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 from.

  • You'll be met at the hotel by your driver today for a transfer to Verona airport for your flight home.
