Milan (1 Night)

 

Milan, the fashion capital of Italy, seamlessly blends historic grandeur with modern flair. Home to iconic landmarks like the majestic Duomo and the world-renowned La Scala opera house, Milan is a vibrant city that pulses with cultural richness, trendy boutiques, and a thriving culinary scene.

Highlights

    Marvel at the intricate Gothic architecture of the iconic Milan cathedral

    Admire da Vinci’s Last Supper in the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie

    Savor the creamy goodness of saffron-infused risotto, a Milanese specialty

    Train to Lake Como – 1 hour

Lake Como (3 nights)

 

Lake Como, nestled amid the scenic foothills of the Alps, is an enchanting destination that exudes timeless beauty and tranquility. Renowned for its deep blue waters, elegant villas, and charming lakeside towns, Como is a haven for those seeking a perfect blend of natural splendor and cultural richness. Whether you’re exploring the historic streets of Bellagio, cruising on the lake, or simply savoring the local cuisine with a backdrop of majestic mountains, Lake Como offers a captivating retreat in the heart of northern Italy.

Highlights

    Wander through the charming streets of Bellagio, known as the “Pearl of Lake Como”

   Experience the romantic ambiance of Varenna, a lakeside village with colorful houses, scenic promenades, and the lovely Villa Monastero

    Take a leisurely ferry cruise on Lake Como to admire the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains

    Trains to Lake Garda – 2 hours

Lake Garda (3 Nights)

 

Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake, is a captivating destination nestled between the Alpine foothills and the Po Valley. Renowned for its diverse landscapes, charming lakeside towns, and crystal-clear waters, Lake Garda offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and cultural richness.

Venice (2 nights)

Venice is nothing short of unique, built on mudbanks in the lagoon, having forgone the convenience of cars for the charisma of canals. Getting lost in Venice is part of the fun, and if you’re on foot you’ll only find small backstreets leading to less-touristy and more authentic parts of the city.

Highlights

    Cross the iconic St Mark’s Square

    Get lost in the alleyways and canals of the city

    Ride the vaporetto down the grand canal
