Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Rome

Begin your trip in style with complimentary airport lounge access before your flight to Rome. On arrival, you'll be met by a private driver who'll bring you to your exclusive accommodation – the superb Anantara Palazzo Naiadi. Staying in neo-classical luxury where fine dining vies for your attention against spa indulgences, you'll be sited right among the ancient history of Rome, opposite the ancient Baths of Diocletian, and overlooking Piazza della Repubblica. Walking distance to highlights like Via Veneto, and the fashionable Monti district - all close enough to take in without getting footsore.

Stay: Anantara Palazzo Naiadi, Rome (Deluxe)

Day 2

You’ve got today free to explore Rome's café scene, fashion shopping and ancient Colosseum wonders. The 2nd-century Pantheon’s austere façade contrasts with the grand Baroque flourishes of Trevi Fountain and the Piazza Navona. Further highlights include a trip to the Vatican City for St. Peter’s Basilica, a true Renaissance masterpiece.

Stay: Anantara Palazzo Naiadi, Rome (Deluxe)

Day 3
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Leave the splendours of Rome behind today as you head to the station to board the iconic blue-and-gold carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. You’ll be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine as you travel through the hills and vines of the Tuscan countryside towards Florence, after a brief stop enjoy a three-course lunch in the restaurant car as you take in outside’s grandeur. Delight at chocolate box Swiss villages among the deep river valleys and rolling hills before the snow-dusted mountains and picturesque meadows dominate the landscape. Then, enjoy pastries served in your oak-panelled cabin, before you prepare for your night on board. It's a special one, as you'll enjoy a four-course dinner, sampling everything from Brittany lobster to saltmarsh lamb, alongside, of course, an extensive fine wine list.
