Epic Journeys

These breaks are for those wanting to have a longer trip encompassing more than one city and some fantastic unique events. They can range from 4 - 9 nights and are very flexible for longer or shorter breaks as desired.

Some of these incredible experiences include the Venetian Redentore firework display by gondola, before heading to Lake Garda for several nights in this tranquil, scenic setting. Our most popular trip is the Orient Express and Venice which includes one night on the most famous train in the world! However, this is only half the story - once you arrive in Venice there is plenty to make this a once in a lifetime trip, with tours including a gourmet tasting dinner and a sunset gondola ride.

These trips are also great for beginners to Italy, as we offer the best of a range of cities all connected by first class trains and private transfers. These include our Venice, Verona, Florence and Palio holiday which begins in beautiful Venice, before travelling onto Verona for an evening at the opera in the open-air arena. Then travel onto Florence, home of the Renaissance, before finishing in Siena witnessing the Palio race up close, in a range of fantastic viewing positions.
