VENICE – 3 nights

Overlooking the stunning Santa Maria della Salute Church, the boutique hotel Ca Maria Adele will be your home for three nights as you explore Venice’s enchanting waterways and historic streets. Located in the pleasantly quiet and gallery–filled Dorsoduro area, the concept themed rooms at the hotel will keep you in luxurious comfort with its plush furniture and stylish interiors in between your morning boat rides and evening strolls. Floating past ornate palaces and ancient Venetian cathedrals, go on a gondola tour of the maze-like canals before island hopping around the buzzing lagoon with a stop at the famous Murano glassmaking factory.

FLORENCE – 2 nights

A sublime testament to Renaissance Italy, the magical city of Florence counts Michelangelo’s David among its famous residents, and its galleries house the works of Botticelli, Donatello and Raphael among a host of others. With piazzas, palaces and a magnificent basilica, picturesque Florence is a highly decorated city, and as the birthplace of iconic labels such as Gucci, it’s known as much for fashion as it is for culture. Whether sore from running between art galleries and must-see attractions or from hours of fantastic shopping, rest your weary feet at your hotel, the Hotel Brunelleschi, either in the rooftop Jacuzzi for its skyline panorama or in the Tower Bar with a tasty cocktail.

MILAN- 2 nights

Renowned as one of the fashion capitals of the world, Milan is as chic as its reputation would suggest, and staying in the dapper rooms at The Yard Hotel, you’ll experience it in suitable style - each room is uniquely themed after a different sport, from hunting to motorcycling, and appointed with vintage pieces of furniture. While staying in Milan, absorb staggering vistas from the Duomo’s gothic rooftop, wine and dine long into the night and marvel at the catwalk-like streets, lined with fashion boutiques.

LAKE COMO – 3 nights

The crystal clear Italian Lakes flicker like a million camera flashes, and they’re as glamorous as the fashionistas of nearby Milan. Except for the scattering of elegant villas along the shorelines, in this part of Italy architectural splendour stands aside for glistening waters and snow-capped mountains, and natural beauty grabs the limelight. Italy’s crowning glory, you’ll spend three nights resting along the sleepy shores of Lake Como in the tranquil Relais Villa Vittoria. Soak up the views from the glass-encased Veranda restaurant, relax by the heated outdoor infinity pool or take in the magnificent mountain views from the bow of your private speedboat or yacht. Hop from harbour to harbour visiting the Belle Epoque town of Menaggio and the beguiling village of Varenna and add another jewel to your collection, by visiting the ‘pearl of Lake Como’, Bellagio, to see its waterfront of bobbing boats, its maze of stone staircases and its red-roofed buildings surrounded by rhododendron-filled gardens.
