Itinerary - Venice and the Bernina Express

Day 1 - London to Zurich

Your scenic journey to Italy starts in London, where you will board the Eurostar and speed under the English Channel to Paris. Arrive in Zurich this evening and check in at your hotel for an overnight stay.

Day 2 - The Bernina Express to Italy

Travel through the Alps on a scenic ride from Zurich to Chur, where you will pick up the panoramic Bernina Express for an unforgettable journey. The train meanders through snow-dusted mountain ranges, across striking stone viaducts and along the banks of some of Switzerland’s sparkling lakes. Once in Milan, check in at your hotel for an overnight stay and enjoy a tasty Milanese dinner!

Day 3 - Venice

After breakfast, make the pleasant journey from Milan to Venice by rail, enjoying views of the Italian countryside as you go. On arrival, check in at your hotel for a three-night stay and start exploring the city! Waterside Venice’s reputation no doubt precedes it, and many say there is nowhere on earth that matches the beauty and tranquillity of its splendid canals.

Day 4 - Venice

Spend a full day discovering the gems of Venice today, with a small group tour of the ancient Doges Palace then the priceless treasure that is the Golden Basilica.  In the afternoon take a guided stroll through Venice’s’ alleys, lanes and bridges with a local who can show you some of the secrets these narrow streets hold.  In the evening feast on some seafood or perhaps watch the world go from the historic ‘Harrys Bar’; home of the Bellini. 

Day 5 - Venice

Spend another day at leisure in Venice. Take a trip to one of the surrounding islands, perhaps to see expert glass blowing on Murano or Burano. Of course, be sure to make time for an iconic gondola ride down the sparkling waterways before you go!

Day 6 - Depart Venice

Check out of your hotel after breakfast and make your way to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
