Indeed, you’ll enjoy all-inclusive fine dining and exquisite drinks throughout your rail and cruise itinerary.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
London to Venice

Boarding the Belmond British Pullman at London Victoria, you’ll settle into 1920s carriages that have carried the likes of Queen Elizabeth. Expect mosaicked detailing, plush armchairs and polished dark-wood throughout. You’ll also be treated to an indulgent brunch, paired with a Bellini cocktail as the Kentish countryside drifts past. A Eurotunnel hop will then see you to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Here, a white-gloved steward will escort you to your oak-panelled cabin to change for your four-course dinner. Exquisite menus reflect the route – highlights include Brittany lobsters. Before retiring to the crisp damask sheets of your private berth, end the evening with a drink in the bar car, soundtracked by a baby grand piano.

Day 2

You’ll wake this morning to views of the magnificent Swiss Alps and a Continental breakfast, served in your cabin as rural Austria sweeps past. A three-course lunch will then see you into Italy, leaving plenty of time to relax in the bar car with your fellow travellers. Then, as you cross the Venetian Lagoon, you’ll be treated to an afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes, pastries and gourmet sandwiches. Then, on arrival, you’ll be met by one of Venice’s iconic water taxis, bringing you right along the Grand Canal to your luxury hotel’s private pier. A typically Venetian property, complete with fine art and canal views, you’ll be centrally poised to explore this floating wonder.

Stay: Hotel Kette (Superior)

Meals: B L

Days 3-4

With two full days in Venice, we’ve included a walking tour to help you get your bearings. You’ll centre on the famed Piazza San Marco, admiring its golden mosaics, marble-inlayed floors and great, 12th-century bell tower. You’ll also enjoy a visit to the skyscraping domes and Byzantine treasure trove of St. Mark’s Basilica along with skip-the-line access to Doge's Palace. You’ll beat the queues for its jewellery box of sculpture, mosaics and golden stairways. Then, there’s some time to explore on your own. Perhaps head out on a lazy boat ride to the Venetian Islands’ glass-blowing wonders and colourful heritage. Or, simply relax in a quiet, plaza-side café.

Day 5

Today, a private water taxi will see you embark the Seven Seas Voyager. Here, you’ll be welcomed to your suite with a bottle of champagne, private balcony and even a marble bathroom. And, it’s not just your daily-replenished minibar that’s complimentary, with fine wines served in open bars and all-inclusive gourmet dining spanning from poolside grill to fine French cuisine. You’ll also be treated to a well-stocked library, cocktail pool bar and a card room, while the casino, cigar lounge and superb theatre add extra entertainment. The spa is a special highlight, complemented by a superb fitness centre, also host to the likes of golf cages and a jogging track.

Day 6
Split, Croatia

At your first stop, Split, and indeed throughout your voyage, you’ll be treated to a full spread of complimentary shore excursions. In between its backdrop of coastal mountains and front of turquoise waters, this buzzing city boasts a unique heritage among its terracotta old town. Walking tours bring you among ancient Roman palaces and magnificent Catholic cathedrals alike, pausing to taste your way through a wine cellar. Alternatively, head out for a drive along the Split Riviera, stopping at green islands dotted with stone houses and grand palaces.

Day 7
Kotor, Montenegro

Your next port of call is Kotor in Montenegro, a medieval walled town that’s a maze of churches, cobblestone lanes and Venetian palaces hemmed between mountains and its pretty bay. Bring it to life with a walking tour, cheese tastings and spectacular coastal drives. You might also want to stop at Perast’s ornate churches and Gospa Islet’s Baroque flourishes, or head to Budva, a medieval fortification ringed by white-sand beaches. However, it’s a sailing to nearby Prcanj and its Baroque Our Lady’s Temple that’s perhaps most enticing. Here, you’ll be treated to classical concert before tucking into a seafood lunch and a walking tour of this medieval walled town’s labyrinth of cobblestone laneways.

Day 8
Corfu, Greece

It’s then on to take in all the romance Corfu, a flower-strewn island dotted with secluded beaches and Adriatic-style villages. Your complimentary shore excursions will bring you among it all, taking in garden-ringed palaces, the 14th-century Venetian fortress, Byzantine monasteries perched on hilltops and vineyards fragranced by citrus trees. As always, you’ll explore at a pace that suits you, with walks, coach trips and 4WD expeditions to choose from. It’s all animated by the likes of local dance performances and wine tastings, paired with mezze courses.

Day 9
Katakolon (Olympia)

Sleepy Katakolon is a tiny enclave, its colourful fishermen’s houses clinging to the Peloponnese coast. And, aside for its quieter charms, it’s an ideal gateway for tours to Olympia. Driving through rolling hills and olive groves, you’ll reach this once-great city’s excavated remains. From the iconic stadium to the Temple of Zeus, it’s packed full of ancient wonders. Bring it all to life with visits to the archaeological museum and the chance to sample Greek wine and snacks while enjoying a folkloric dance performance.

Day 10

Put simply, Santorini is an icon, its whitewashed houses tumbling perilously down the side of a volcanic caldera and out to stunning beaches. You’ll arrive by tender boats to walk mazing alleyways that knit together old mansions and humble residences alike. It’s all watched over by 18th-century monasteries and a Venetian castle, which you’ll descend from by donkey or cable car. And, given the region’s volcanicity, much of the surrounding prehistory has been wonderfully preserved, showcased in a fascinating museums and Akrotiri – an excavated Bronze Age settlement. But, if it’s the natural world you’re interested in, swim in thermal springs and walk alongside dramatic lava formations before retiring with a Greek wine.

Day 11

You’ll be welcomed to Gythion by a spectacular coastline and white-sand beaches. And, as the former seaport of Sparta, your complimentary shore excursions will take in everything from archaeological excavations to a statue of King Leonidas. Further touring will see you to 19th-century country houses, Neolithic cave dwellings and Mystras, a medieval stronghold of churches and mansions. Here, you’ll take in fine frescoes, vaulted halls and historic fountains. There’s also the chance to showcase the region’s rich gastronomy in winery tastings and tours of historic olive plantations.

Today is given over the cruising the Mediterranean, a time to relax and enjoy the facilities onboard. Whether it’s catching a full-scale musical at the Constellation Theater and staying connected with the free WiFi or making use of the gym and paddleboard courts, there’s something for everyone. As always, you’ve also got the all-inclusive delights of the ship’s indulgent restaurants. Perhaps it’s the steakhouse favourites of Prime 7, the contemporary Parisian delights of Chartreuse or simply a barista-prepared coffee and freshly baked pastry at the café that take your fancy. Wash it all down with complimentary champagne and fine wines.

Day 13
Ancona, Italy (Umbria)

Arriving into Italy, you’ll drop anchor at Ancona – a city founded by Greek settlers in 387 BC. Map its rich heritage in Roman ruins, Renaissance palazzo and an old town crowned by an impressive cathedral. You’ll also have all of Umbria’s delights on your doorstep, explored on your included excursions. A quieter alternative to Tuscany, its vineyard-terraced hills are dotted with magnificent medieval towns.

Day 14

Your penultimate port of call is Slovenia’s Koper. Here, red-tiled roofs spill down towards the deep blue of its marina, capping Venetian mansions and palace-ringed squares. You can also head through the pretty Slovenian countryside to wine cellars, farmers’ markets, quiet fishing villages and a pretty cruise on Lake Bled, taking in its island church surrounded by emerald waters. However, you might want to continue to Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana. Here, Roman, Baroque and medieval flourishes compete for your attention. The walled city of Piran is a final highlight; beautified by yet more Venetian splendour, it’s the country’s oldest town.
