Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Verona

You'll begin your trip in style with complimentary airport lounge access before your flight to Verona, a private driver will whisk you to your centrally located hotel. The Due Torri - just a few steps from the city’s historic centre. If you can tear yourself away from your night in a living museum, let us arrange a food safari, where a local guide will take you to the city’s finest haunts; sip rich Italian coffee, nibble on delicatessen treats and enjoy perfectly-prepared pasta in a traditional trattoria. 

Stay: Due Torri Hotel, Verona (Deluxe)

Meals: B

Day 2
Verona

Awake to a leisurely breakfast and perhaps dip into a well-thumbed copy of Romeo and Juliet for inspiration. After we’ll arrange a walk where a local guide will lead you to Verona’s must-see sights, including the city’s most famous balcony, and secret corners. Indulge yourself with a visit to the luxury shops and boutiques on Via Mazzinia or visit the market in Piazza delle Erbe remembering to look up at the medieval and renaissance architecture that rings it. Later, people watch from a piazza to see why they’re described as the city’s ‘drawing rooms’ and indulge in an aperitivo.

Stay: Due Torri Hotel, Verona (Deluxe)

Meals: B

Day 3
Depart Verona aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

After breakfast this morning, a private transfer will see you to Verona’s station, where you’ll be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine. You’ll then be met on the platform by your personal steward, who’ll escort you to your private cabin. Here, polished wood panelling and lacy detailing recall all the grandeur of yesteryear. You’ll then be treated to epic views of the looming Dolomites as a three-course lunch is served in one of the restaurant cars, themselves beautified by fine crystalware and lacquerwork. Then, following afternoon tea in your cabin, you’ll be treated to a four-course dinner, with menus graced by the likes of Brittany lobster and Mont St. Michel lamb. Perhaps end the day with a cocktail in the bar carriage.

Stay: Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 4
Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to Paris

Raise the blind to look out over an entirely different landscape. Take breakfast in your cabin after your private steward has turned it back into a plush seating area in a trice. Then, relax as the scenery of northern France rushes by, accompanied by a delicious brunch served before you arrive in Paris.

As your journey draws to a close, transfer to Gare du Nord where you'll board the Eurostar back to London. Alternatively, speak to your specialist about flight options to a wide range of regional UK airports.
