Departing 05 Jun 19
Escape to Italy with a four night Tuscany stay, followed by a luxury Eastern Mediterranean cruise and crowned by a journey home on the exquisite Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Your Italian escape begins with four nights in the beautiful region of Tuscany. Here rolling hills draped in morning mist, vineyards washed in golden sunshine and medieval villages perched on the hillsides all add to Tuscany’s enduring charm. Staying in Montecatini, famed for its thermal waters and stunning fountains, the Tuscan cities of Florence and Pisa are just a train ride away. During your stay you’ll travel to Castello Vicchiomaggio where you’ll enjoy a tour of the wine cellar with lunch and paired wines, followed by a visit to a traditional Tuscan village in the Chianti region.
Following your stay you’ll travel to Rome where you’ll embark the stunning Silver Whisper. Discover a little more Italian magic in idyllic Capri, known for its rugged landscape, secret grottos and mythical allure; and Sorrento, the gateway to the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Other highlights include the golden-hued Maltese capital, Valletta, home to prehistoric temples, medieval towns and Roman catacombs; Kotor, the shining jewel in Montenegro’s crown, Kotor; and Croatian Hvar. You’ll also have a night to explore Venice, a city cobwebbed with canals, where enigmatic streets reveal spectacular vistas and intimate family-owned Italian restaurants.
Your final adventure sees you enjoy a journey home to remember on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. As you step on board, you’ll be greeted with sparkling wine and afternoon tea; the ideal beginning to a timeless journey that puts the elegance back into travel. Enjoy ever-changing views from your window as you curl through towns brandishing church spires and castle turrets, with shimmering lakeside scenery in Switzerland and the Austrian Alps. A sequence of unforgettable moments, barely changed by time, make this voyage one of the world’s finest travel experiences, admired by many but enjoyed by few.
