Detailed Description

Whether in the charm of Lake Como or the majesty of Venice, you will find romance around every corner during your 8-day getaway in northern Italy. Embrace the passion on your first day as your flight will land at Malpensa Airport in Milan. Your private guide will meet you and your partner at baggage claim and escort you into the heart of the bustling city. After you settle into your luxurious hotel, you will enjoy the wonders of Milan, from the Cathedral to the canals, and delight in your first meal together at a restaurant praised by locals. Tour the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II before you visit the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie.

The latter contains the unforgettable fresco of da Vinci’s Last Supper. Your private transfer will meet you at the hotel when you are ready and will lead you into the Alps to discover the historical cobbled lanes and gorgeous scenery of Lake Como. Relax with the remainder of the day at your leisure to wander hand-in-hand along the shoreline and meandering alleys. The next days are at your leisure to indulge in the enchanting landscape and captivating towns around the lake.

You will then have a private transfer to Venice, with a stop in Verona along the way. Once in Venice, you will settle into the comforts of your accommodation situated in a former palace. Your gondolier will meet you on the hotel’s private dock and take you through the narrow canals of the hidden city that offers elegance, seclusion, and charm. Your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby the next day to introduce you to the lavish architecture and exuberant artistry of Venice, beginning at St. Mark’s Square. Visit the Cathedral and the Doge’s palace before you explore the serene neighborhoods around the city.

Relish the private tastings of Prosecco before you return to Venice with a tour of Murano Island. You and your partner will have a private glassblowing demonstration to learn the unique art perfected in Venice centuries ago.
