Food & wine | Rail journey | Relaxation
Experience the life of yesteryear’s elite with a luxury rail journey paired with a stay on an Italian lake great. It all begins with an overnight journey from London to Verona, enjoying white-gloved service, multi-course fine dining and piano-backed cocktails in the bar car. It’s all wrapped up in the finest Art-Deco style, travelling on both the Belmond British Pullman and the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Disembarking, a private driver will be waiting to sweep you on to Lake Como, where you’ll stay in an Art-Nouveau icon, relaxing on its private beach and exploring quaint fishing villages.
Day by day itinerary
Onboard the Orient Express
With a reception in London Victoria, you’ll begin in red-carpet style, before boarding the luxurious Belmond British Pullman. Behind the umber-and-cream livery lies a world of plush carpets, inlaid mosaics and crisp tablecloths that’s hosted the likes of the Queen herself. And, as rural Kent sweeps past, you’ll be treated to a gourmet brunch and glass of champagne before a channel-tunnel hop sees you on to Calais. Here, you’ll be welcomed onto the Orient Express by your personal steward, settling in to your dark-wood private cabin. It’s soon time to change for the evening before settling in to an indulgent four-course dinner, perhaps capped by a pianist-accompanied drink in the bar car.
Stay: Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (Deluxe)

Verona to Lake Como
Waking to views of the Swiss Alps, you’ll be served a Continental breakfast in the privacy of your cabin. Then, after the fresh pastries and coffees, you’ll have some time to relax as the scenery levels out into the Italian countryside – the backdrop to a sumptuous three-course lunch. Rolling into Verona, perhaps pause to take in its millennia-old Roman amphitheatre and churches of Shakespearean fame before your private transfer whisks you on to Lake Como. Skirting its glittering shores, you’ll arrive into your luxury accommodation – an Art Nouveau palace where you’ll stay in a lake-view room complete with private balcony.
Stay: Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como (Deluxe)
Meals: B L
You’ll have three full days in Lake Como to relax and indulge. And, you won’t even need to leave your hotel. It features the lake’s only private beach, a fine-dining terrace and a trio of pools, including an infinity offering and one sunk right into the lake’s waters. There’s also everything from spa treatments to a private marina, where cruises depart to explore the lake, pausing at 18th-century villas and medieval castles. Be sure to also pay particular attention to next-door Bellagio. A fishing village of immeasurable charm, its seafood restaurants, quaint churches and verdant gardens are a true delight.

Depart for UK from Milan
Following a final indulgent breakfast, you’ll be met by a private driver for the short trip on to Milan and your flight home. Consider pausing to take in its world-wonder cathedral, Last-Supper treasures and designer boutiques.
