  • Description: Fashion capital Milan gives way to the jagged, sun-drenched coastline of the villages of Cinque Terre, as refined elegance and untamed beauty unite in the contrasts of Northern Italy. It's Insider moments like… the calming splash of fountains as you wander through the Villa Taranto gardens, the classic lines of northern elegance receding as you travel onwards to the Ligurian coast. It's feeling the sunshine and salt spray on your skin and the rich perfume of baking focaccia in the air as you discover the traditions of the fishing villages of Cinque Terre. And marvelling at the rainbow of pastel-coloured houses nestling against rugged cliffs, as you learn about the epic flood of 2011 that threatened their future.

    • + Lake Orta And San Giulio Island We take a scenic drive with our Local Guide to Pettenasco, on the shores of Lake Orta, without doubt northern Italy's best kept secret. After time for a stroll, we cruise by local boat to the island of San Giulio, famous for its peaceful atmosphere and delightful church.

    • + Villas Of Lake Como We drive along the shores of Lake Como. Here we board our private launch for a leisurely cruise past the most elegant villas and gardens of this region - arguably the most beautiful spot in the Italian Lake District. Afterwards, free time to have dinner in one of the many restaurants on the lake front.


    • + Treasures Of Milan With a local city guide we visit some of this bustling citys most famous sights. First we enter the impressive Castello Sforza - today one of the countrys most important museums, where we see the 'Pieta of Rondanini' by Michelangelo among other great works. Then we continue to the world renowned 'La Scala' opera house and museum. (N.B.: Should either La Scala or the Castello be unavailable, there will be a visit to the remarkable Museum of Milan.)
