Highlights

Lakes & Barolo Wineries

Discover Italy’s iconic lake region with expert guides and luxury hotels. Tree-clad mountains tumble into clear blue waters, ornate palaces dot the lakes’ shores and pretty villages are scattered across the landscape. For outdoor activities or simply somewhere to relax, there is no better location. Get acquainted with the very best wineries in this special region, such as the infamous Barolo. Choose from their finest selection such as Garesio, Conterno Fantino and Fontana Bianca as you learn all about iconic Piedmont grapes.

Verona to Dolomites

Arrive in Verona and enjoy a private walking tour. Begin at the original Roman entrance before visiting local cafés to learn about real Italian coffee and continuing to the city's most iconic building, the Arena – once used for gladiator battles and now for live music. Glimpse the 14th-century Casa di Giulietta, the supposed home of the Capulet family of Shakespeare's famous play. If you prefer, head straight to the Lefay Resort and take in the stunning scenery or perhaps stop at a local winery for lunch.

Dolomites

Enjoy a full day at the hotel. Activities include hiking, horse riding and biking. If you wish to explore, a driver can be arranged to venture further afield at your own pace.

Dolomites to Lake Como

Transfer to your next beautiful hotel in Italy.

Hotel Passalacqua

Spend the morning enjoying the hotel – take in the Lake views or relax in the spa, before taking a boat trip from Passalacqua’s private dock. There are two vintage boats to choose from: Giumello, a traditional wooden boat, and Didi, recently refurbished with Loro Piana fabrics.

Bellagio

Visit the delightful town of Bellagio, likely the most famous town on the lake. Nestled on a peninsula in the middle of Lake Como, it’s made a great filming location for popular movies such as James Bond. During your private walking tour, discover the small hamlets of Pescallo and Taronica - known for its traditional stone cottages. Sample local wines on a panoramic terrace at Villa Crella before a stroll through the Japan-inspired gardens of Villa Melzi. 

Lake Como to Piedmont via Milan

Today's three-hour tour takes in the two 'must-see' highlights of Milan. Begin with a visit to Santa Maria delle Grazie, a Renaissance jewel where Leonardo worked closely with Donato Bramante. Afterwards, take in the colossal and flamboyant Duomo, or cathedral – the third largest church in the world. Walk through the nearby Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a 19th-century glass-vaulted shopping arcade and one of the world's first examples of Art Nouveau.  

Casa di Langa

Enjoy a cooking class at the hotel this morning, and then, depending on the time of year, either wine tasting (as a taste of what will come tomorrow) or truffle hunting.

Barolo Wineries

Your driver is at your disposal for a full day of local famous winery visits. The day's events will be handpicked by your consultant – visits and tastings that perfectly reflect your preferences. Some examples from a wide selection could be Garesio, Conterno Fantino or Fontana Bianca – all subject to prebooking and the time of year.
