Whether it's a boat tour in Venice, a leisurely day by Lake Como, exploring Milan's cultural treasures, or basking in the coastal splendor of Portofino, we have carefully crafted this itinerary for you to celebrate love and create cherished moments in some of Italy's most captivating destinations.
Your love-filled adventure starts in the City of Canals, where winding waterways, charming bridges, and historic architecture set the stage for the perfect escape.
Once you arrive at Venice Airport, our professional driver will pick you up and drive you to your hotel. Enjoy your free time and rest before embarking on an exciting exploration of Venice!
The next day, you will enjoy an exclusive walking tour, passing by prominent attractions concealed within the canals and bridges. From the oldest church in Campo San Giacomettoto, the district where Marco Polo spent his early years, delved into the captivating culture, history, art, and architecture.
Ponte Rialto presents the opportunity to discover centuries-old stories, and the views from the bridge offer a breathtaking panorama of the Venetian cityscape.
Your knowledgeable local expert will help you truly appreciate every little corner of the city and, of course, the big highlight, the mosaics inside the gothic St. Mark's Basilica.
Your second day holds a surprise outside of the hustle and bustle of Venice. You will discover Murano and Burano, two historic islands accessible solely by boat, where the genuine traditions of Venice are still alive.
You will unwind as your boat transports you and your small group of no more than 20 guests from one island to another. You will also enjoy an exclusive wine-tasting experience at a secret vineyard and a meal at a Michelin Star restaurant.
The highlight of your tour will be getting familiar with the art of glassmaking with a private demonstration in an old church!
It is time for you to explore the North of Italy and board the train to Milan! Upon reaching Milan, your transition will be more than smooth as a comfortable car transfer will drive you along the breathtaking beauties of Lake Como. Relax in your accommodation or enjoy the tranquil landscape until you venture into the great outdoors.
What better way to get introduced to the splendor of your surroundings than a lake cruise? Throughout this day’s guided journey, you will unravel the hidden tales of Lake Como, delving into the lake's secrets through the intriguing stories behind its renowned villas.
The tour culminates in Bellagio on the picturesque shores of Lake Como, a town that exudes timeless charm and elegance. There, you will be treated to a traditional Aperitivo featuring regional wines, local cheese, and cold-cut platters.
On your free day, you will have plenty of things to do at Lake Como. From taking a calming lakeside stroll to enjoy the tranquility of the scenery to wandering through narrow cobblestone streets or opting for dinner at a restaurant with a stunning view of the lake, Lake Como has many spots worth your time.
The charming villages of Bellagio, Varenna, and Menaggio have many gelaterias, shops, and cafes, and you can spend your whole day feeling like a local!
On day 7, you will depart from the magical Lake Como. Enjoy a private ride to Milan as you travel through the lush greenery and get glimpses of life in the Italian countryside.
Once you are there, make the most out of your first day in Milan by following your local insider in the city center, who will introduce you to the various exciting faces of Milan, from Italian fashion and design to ancient monuments.
Your journey will begin at one of Milan's most authentic neighborhoods, Navigli, before you venture into the city center to awe at the San Lorenzo columns, the renowned Scala Opera House, the Temple of Opera, and the impressive Gallery of Vittorio Emanuele.
Your local guide will provide insights into the history and significance of this vibrant area and will conclude the tour with the iconic Duomo. Last but not least, you will be invited to one of the rooftop terraces for a breathtaking panorama of Piazza Duomo and the entire city!
Day 8 will be yours to spend as you wish. Milan offers a perfect balance of cultural exploration, culinary delights, and leisure, allowing you to savor the diverse facets of this sophisticated Italian city.
During your free time, we recommend strolling through Parco Sempione, a park near the historic Sforza Castle, returning to the Navigli district for an authentic Italian lunch, or simply shopping in the boutiques in the Brera district for unique finds to take home.
Your journey will then continue south after our private driver picks you up from your hotel in Milan and takes you to Portofino. As you approach the Ligurian coast, you will enjoy a breathtaking Riviera panorama before you arrive at your destination.
This last day, you will embark on an exceptional private boat tour and discover the Portofino Gulf and its protected natural region! Explore secluded coves for a refreshing swim in the crystalline waters, marvel at imposing cliffs, and admire the rich Mediterranean vegetation.
Among the sights you will admire from the sea are the unique villages of San Fruttuoso, with its distinctive bell tower and beautiful bay, and that of Camogli.
What better way to conclude your boat trip to Portofino than indulging in a flavorful culinary experience? In Camogli, you will feel like a local, savoring the local wines and trying the famous focaccia.
