Overview
From historic Venice to the soul-stirring alpine villages of Switzerland, join us on a memory-making adventure that takes in time honoured traditions, local culture and even some remarkable railway journeys – all among some of the world's most enchanting scenery.

Day 1 - Venice - Sirmione
Today we'll become acquainted with Venice's maze-like backstreets on a guided walking tour before launching into a ‘hands on' traditional mask making experience. After ample time to craft your own souvenir, we'll travel onwards to Sirmione, where we'll settle down for dinner together before resting our heads for the night. Meals - Dinner

Day 2 - Sirmione - Borghetto - Sirmione
This morning we'll rise early for a guided tour of Sirmione before continuing onwards to a local farmhouse. Here, we'll indulge in an authentic lunch filled with a variety of cheeses, artisan bread and local vegetables. After lunch, we'll make tracks to the breathtaking town of Borghetto, where we'll embark on a walking tour. After an eventful few hours, we'll return to Sirmione, where you can enjoy a free night at your own pace. Meals - Breakfast & Lunch

Day 3 - Sirmione - Brescia - Sulzano - Franciacorta
Our first stop today welcomes us to Brescia for a guided tour of this magnificent city – home to various UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Our road will then carry us to the Port of Sulzano for a private boat tour, including a stop at the picturesque fishing village of Peschiera Maraglio on Monte Isola. Continuing through Iseo, we'll move onwards to Franciacorta where we'll spend the night and share an evening meal together. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner

Day 4 - Franciacorta
Rolling hills, charming vineyards and medieval villages are on the cards today.

With our appetites satisfied, we'll continue to Mosnel Villa for today's final round of wine tasting. Meals - Breakfast & Lunch

Day 5 - Franciacorta - Tirano - Pontresina
Today our path turns away from Franciacorta and onwards to Tirano – where one of our trip highlights awaits. It's here that we'll board the Bernina Express to embark on one of the world's iconic railway journeys. Our train will climb steadily into the mountains, passing through tunnels where views of soaring peaks and awe-inspiring glaciers await on the other side. Our final stop is Pontresina, where we'll be welcomed to Switzerland with a warming group dinner. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner

Day 8 - Wengen - Hergiswill - Lucerne - Zurich

Next, we'll visit Lucerne (whose medieval old town and lakeside setting enchanted everyone from Goethe to Queen Victoria), where you'll have a chance to satisfy your sweet tooth with a chocolate tasting at Max Chocolatier.
