Relax by the exquisite scenery of two of Italy's most stunning lakes, Como and Maggiore, and soak up the culture of glamorous Milan.
Today on our included excursion we first visit Arona, where you will have time at leisure to enjoy the grand architecture and cosmopolitan atmosphere. We continue to Lake Maggiore and the resort of Baveno.
Here we take a short boat ride on the lake which takes us to the opulent resort town of Stresa. We sail past the beautiful Borromean Islands, which lie at the centre of the lake and are fine examples of natural beauty enhanced by landscaped gardens and parks.Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Today, our included excursion takes us to Milan, where you can spend the day at leisure exploring all the city has to offer. Milan shares its title as one of the Fashion Capitals of the world with London, New York, Paris and Tokyo.
To get the most from your visit, why not join our optional guided walking tour? Accompanied by our local guide we see sights such as the Castello Sforzesco and the magnificent Gothic-style Duomo, the seat of the Archbishop of Milan. We also see the Galleria, a covered double arcade connecting Piazza del Duomo to Piazza della Scala. Finally we conclude our tour with a short visit to La Scala Theatre, one of the world’s most famous opera houses (entrance included).Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Today, for those passengers who have pre-booked, our optional excursion takes you to the world famous resort of St. Moritz. Sporting life has always been an important part of St. Moritz, and over 100 years ago the first British visitors used to stage Toboggan races in the streets.
There will be a short amount of time for you to explore before we board the Bernina Region Railway and cross one of the highest railroad lines in the Alps. As we approach the Swiss / Italian border, we travel over the Brusio spiral viaduct, an amazing feat of engineering that allows the train to gradually descend 20 metres in a relatively short distance.
We arrive in Tirano, a quaint Italian town, where we spend a short amount of free time before returning to our hotel.Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
