Price Per Person



5 days


Day 01: Arrive Milan

Welcome to Milan! Meet our driver at Milan Malpensa Airport and enjoy a private transfer to Starhotel Ritz. In the afternoon, meet your professional local guide at the hotel and set off on a three hours walking tour through the heart of Milan. Going down via Spallanzani, you will reach Porta Venezia (literally Venice Gate), one of the historical gates to the city. It has medieval and maybe even Roman origins, and it gives the name to the city district all around it. An urban legend has it that the other name it is known as “Porta Renza” stems from Renzo Tramaglino, coprotagonist of he novel The Betrothed by Alessandro Manzoni, who enters Milan exactly from this access. You will proceed toward Corso Venezia and take a shortcut inside Giardini Indro Montanelli, a public garden. Opposite the gardens, you will go past GAM, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna (modern art museum). Proceeding along Viale Manzoni, you will head for La Scala opera house (Teatro alla Scala), inaugurated on 3 August 1778.The theater underwent major renovations from early 2002 to late 2004. Then, get ready to take in the stunning Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano).Your tour guide will illustrate its main features.The last stop will be the majestic Castello Sforzesco, a medieval fortress built in the 15th century by the Duke of Milan, Francesco Sforza. In its vicinity, we have chosen a refined bakery for you to be able to relax and taste a typical aperitivo (happy hour). At the end of the aperitivo, the tour is over and you will have some free time before returning to the hotel on your own. Overnight stay is in Milan.

Day 02: Milan - Bernina Express - Milan

This is the day of your Bernina Express tour, on board “the train that snakes its way up to the mountain peaks”. Just like sitting in a theater, you will admire unique views from your seat on board the Bernina Train, a piece of history (it is 100 years old) and a World Heritage train. After breakfast at the hotel, meet our driver and reach Tirano. You will get on board there and start this ride along one of the most beautiful railway routes in the world, with its unsurpassed alpine views.The journey will need two hours to complete. As the train winds its way over the Alps, occasionally passing through mountain tunnels, and puffing its way past a myriad of towns and villages, a number of highlights will catch your attention. Look out at the Swiss Alps as you ride along the Bernina pass to St. Moritz, and then enjoy free time to explore it. Meet your driver to return to Milan (meeting point in St. Moritz). Overnight stay in Milan.

Day 03: Milan - Como - Bellagio - Varenna - Bergamo (B)

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and then prepare for a short visit to Como, a tourist destination for its vicinity to Lake Como and the Alps. Amazing views over the lake and the alpine valleys are guaranteed! The lake itself, sometimes called Lario, has long been famous for its y-shape and for Bellagio that you will reach by boat. This little gem town lies at the intersection of the lake’s two southern arms, with the Alps dominating the horizon to the north, and is home to some of the most charming landscapes in Italy. Spend some time exploring this picturesque village and its small streets, luxury hotels, villas, and gardens, and have lunch at your leisure in one of the many restaurants or cafés. Back on board, you will make your way to Varenna in the afternoon, where you will take a panoramic tour before moving on to Ber- gamo, a truly historic and artistic jewel characterized by its urban structure: the città bassa (or lower town) is modern and dynam- ic, while the famous città alta (or upper town) houses the city’s medieval heart. Check in at your Bergamo hotel for the night.

Day 04: Bergamo - Sirmione - Riva del Garda - Bergamo (B)

Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, is the next destination. After breakfast at your hotel, you suggest to take a panoramic tour of the lake’s west coast, taking in the splendid natural landscape, like the Brenta Dolomites (the Brenta Group has been officially recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the gentle slopes of the Moraine Hills of Lower Garda. Enjoy the area’s rich vegetation, including lemon trees, oleanders, magnolias, bou- gainvillea and be sure to taste some of the locally-made olive oil and wines. Next, you will move to Sirmione, where Lake Garda and its surroundings are at their finest. See the sun reverberating on lake’s blue waters, the treelined shores, Sirmione Castle as well as the ruins of Catullus’s villa or Grottoes of Catullus (the 1st century BC poet owned a villa here) during a boat tour. Once you’re through, you will have some free time to have lunch be- fore departing for Riva del Garda. Located on the north side of the lake, you will see its quaint Venetian-style historical center.

Day 05: Bergamo - Verona - Franciacorta (light lunch and wine tasting) - Milan (BL)

After breakfast, reach “fair Verona”, a museum en plain air. A local professional will be waiting for you and take you on a guided tour. The fascinating mix of historical periods and cultures (both classical and Germanic) is a blend of Nordic as well as Medi- terranean influences that is both ancient and modern. A walk through its narrow streets will allow you to get in touch with Verona’s varied and fascinating past: traces of its splendid Ro- man origins, its medieval structures, its magnificent renaissance palaces, as well as the impressive fortifications protecting it.The combination of art and history will amaze you. Two of William Shakespeare’s plays are set in Verona: “Romeo and Juliet” is by far the most famous one. We suggest taking a look at the so-called Juliet’s home (and its balcony, said to have been the legendary balcony of the famous “Oh Romeo, Rome” tragedy’s scene). It is a medieval building located in via Cappello. Capello is the name of a family who resided in the edifice in the 14th century. After the Verona tour, you will drive toward the territory of Franciacorta, whose soil consisting of gravel and sand over limestone is ideal for the cultivation of grapes and for winemak- ing. This is why we chose this place for your next stop. This is where you will enjoy a light lunch and taste some local food as well as the renowned local wine. After this experience, you will head for Milan, where our services will end.
