Best for… Romance / Leisure / Nature / Culture
Venice: You will start your romantic adventure through Italy’s northern cities in one of the most romantic cities in Europe – Venice. Known globally as The Floating City, Venice is a magical place that you will simply fall in love with from the moment you enjoy your private boat transfer from the airport to your hotel. The city of Venice is made up of 118 small islands that are linked by a network of canals and bridges. It is known for its decadent past and has numerous glorious palaces, many of which line the banks of the Grand Canal. While here, you will have plenty of time to see these buildings and the other stunning city sights, such as St Mark’s Square. As a part of our unique travel-planning service, we can arrange a guided city tour for you, as well as a sunset gondola tour of the Grand Canal with the option of a romantic serenade.
Milan: Next on your North Italy tour we take you from the romantic atmosphere of Venice to the chic vibes of Milan. Here, you can spend 2 nights absorbing the cosmopolitan and chic atmosphere, or treating yourself to some tailored clothes from one of the city’s boutique designer shops. As a part of our Italy travel service, we can arrange a personal shopping assistant to help guide you to seek out the best designer stores so that you can make the most of your time and stay ahead of the fashion trends. Alternatively, we can arrange transport to one of the designer outlets on the outskirts of the city, where you can enjoy discounts of up to 70% off well-known brands, such as Gucci. Of course, Milan also has plenty of attractions if you would prefer not to shop – don’t miss the Gothic Cathedral and La Scala Opera Theater.
Verona: Next, you can discover the city of love that inspired Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet with a stop in Verona. This city feels like it has stepped out of a fairytale and has magical architecture and delightful monuments around every corner. With its laid-back atmosphere, it is the perfect contrast to Milan as the next stop on this North Italy tour. And so that you can discover the best of Verona, we will arrange a private walking tour of the city that takes you to some of the charming attractions that featured in Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, including Juliet’s famous balcony. On the tour, you’ll also have time to take in the vast amphitheater and we can also arrange tickets to the opera as a special and romantic treat that you will never forget!
Lake Como: After taking in the sights of some of Italy’s most romantic cities, it’s time to immerse yourself in the tranquil setting of Como – one of the lakes in Italy’s iconic Lake District. Here, you can experience the rippling waters of the stunning lake that George Clooney so fell in love with that he bought a grand villa on the banks of the lake. The lake is backed by soaring mountains and lush forest, creating an atmosphere of complete relaxation. It is also decorated by several pretty villages, such as Como, which feature tangled city streets and Gothic architecture. As a part of this custom Italian tour, we can arrange a guided walk of Como so that you can admire attractions such as the glorious Cathedral and candy-colored villas. Alternatively, for something luxurious, we can arrange a private boat tour of the lake so that you can best take in the scenery.
Lake Garda: It’s hard not to marvel at the vastness of Lake Garda and to wonder about the secret life that it must be home to. As a wonderfully romantic finale to your vacation, you can enjoy bike riding, lake-side walking trails among flowers and green hills and the charming villages that sit on the lake’s shores. Must-see resorts include Sirmione, which has vibrantly colored town houses that sit snugly against the lapping waters, and Desenzano del Garda, which has a cosmopolitan town center, where you can find green parks, cafe, bars and boutique shops. As a delightful end to your vacation, we highly recommend enjoying a special meal at one of the award-winning restaurants on the waterfront.
