  • Style: Regional
  • Description: The beauty and grace of Italy is a kaleidoscope of colours, fragrances and tastes, explored on a trip that ventures from the interior to the coast, and the sultry, sun-soaked island of Capri. It's Insider moments like… waking in Capri to wander the sun-dappled streets, gelato in hand, as you discover the hidden highlights of this celebrity hideaway. Swimming in crystal-clear waters and lazing in the sunshine of a perfect island day. Days later, the lemony scent of Capri is recalled at 'Il Borgo della Limonaia', the Tuscan home of Daniella Callistri and her family. They welcome you to their home, the scent of lemons lingering as you taste the family olive oil and wine, before a meal of traditional Tuscan delicacies at the Callistri table.

  • VENICE

    • + Canals Of Venice An unforgettable introduction to this unique and magical city! We cruise along the Grand Canal by private water taxi, admiring the magnificent and elegant palazzos. We see the Rialto Bridge and then reach 'the most beautiful outdoor drawing room in the world', St Mark's Square. Later during your Gondola Ride, you will glide along the picturesque smaller canals while a duo of musicians entertains.

    • + Lagoon Cruise With Lunch or Dinner Take some time off the beaten track! We are taken by private boat to the nearby islands in the lagoon of Venice. See the island of Murano where the glass blowers live. Lunch or dinner is taken at the picturesque Island of the fishermen, Burano, famous for its multi-coloured houses and a photographer's paradise. Drinks are also included.

    • + Majestic Venice Explore hidden parts of the maze of streets which make up this unique city. Your Local Guide will give you fascinating insights into Venice's past and present, through the eyes of a local. A visit to the majestic basilica of St Mark reveals some of its treasures. Behind closed doors we will view some of the prized trophies looted by the Venetians in their rise to power, or alternatively we will visit the outside terrace for exceptional vistas of this remarkable city on water.

  • SORRENTO

    • + Capri Highlights Amazing views are in store as we tour the famous 'jet-set' island of Capri. Our excursion includes a cruise around the island to view the famous Faraglioni rocks, and a visit to the villa of Swedish author Axel Munthe, whose gardens are rated amongst the finest in Europe. Private mini buses take us to Anacapri (top of the island), a photographer's dream. (In the event of bad weather a light lunch in a local restaurant will replace the cruise.)

    • + Mozzarella Party And Sorrento Countryside Our beautiful drive takes us into the Sorrentino countryside to arrive at an 18th century olive oil mill where we enjoy a guided visit of the gardens, the mill and an ancient wine cellar. We visit the lemon, orange and olive groves and witness a demonstration of how mozzarella and other cheeses of the region are made. Finally, we enjoy a substantial snack of various cheeses, salamis and marinated vegetables washed down with local wine and home-made bread.

  • FLORENCE

    • + Dinner Wine And Music In The Tuscan Hills Take a scenic drive through the beautiful Tuscan countryside to a delightful regional restaurant set among the pines and cypress trees. Here a feast of gastronomic specialities awaits, accompanied by song and music.

  • ROME

    • + Magnificent Rome With Free Time For Pizza Cameras at the ready for the magnificent sights awaiting us. With our Local Guide we will discover the many delights that Rome has to offer. These can only be truly appreciated by wandering slowly through the labyrinth of narrow streets and beautiful squares which have developed over more than 2000 years, creating an amazing legacy for us today. The Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain are just two of the fine monuments en route. Later you will have free time to eat at the Trattoria of your choice in one of the piazzas.

    • + Roman Evening With Dinner A light hearted evening in Rome. We will relax and enjoy a typical Italian meal (drinks included), while live musicians entertain us. To complete our evening, we will drive along the Via Veneto, a location made famous by the film 'La Dolce Vita' and see how the Romans enjoy their city. A wonderful end to our day.
