DAY 1 | 12 May

DAY 2 | 13 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images8.jpg

Zadar is the gateway to Croatia’s best beaches and Krka National Park, where you can swim beneath beautiful waterfalls. As well as the Roman ruins and Venetian architecture of the old town, it’s worth heading to the waterfront to see one of Zadar’s amazing sunsets, listen to its magical wave-powered sea organ and dance on the solar powered dance floor.

DAY 3 | 14 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images9.jpg

An island perched within the Adriatic Sea, Hvar is blessed with stunning beaches, historic fortresses and blankets of sweet-smelling lavender fields. If you want to stretch your legs, you could take a boat trip to the neighbouring Pakleni Islands, the home of secluded coves and sheltered bays with iridescent turquoise waters.

DAY 4 | 15 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images10.jpg

At Kotor you’ll discover a charming red-roofed Venetian town that lies deep in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor. No visit here is complete without a visit to Our Lady of the Rocks, an artificial island in the bay on which a 17th century Roman Catholic Church stands. Built on top of sunken ships loaded with rocks, it also contains an art and history museum.

DAY 5 | 16 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images11.jpg

Next you’ll sail to Brindisi, a city on the heel of the boot of Italy. Traditionally a major port for trade with Greece and the Middle East, it bears the signs of centuries of different rulers, from the Romans to the Crusaders. In the heart of the city you’ll find the imposing and robust Swabian Castle, now a venue for major cultural events, and the Church of San Giovanni al Sepolcro with its vivid medieval frescoes.

DAY 6 | 17 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images12.jpg
Giardini Naxos (Sicily)

A sleepy Sicilian fishing village until the 1970s, Giardini Naxos is now a popular tourist destination whose seafront is bedecked with pizzerias, bars and hotels. But its rich in ancient history, too. Take in sights such as Schisò Castle, rebuilt in the 16th century from an earlier fort, and Vignazza Tower, a quadrangular watchtower once used to spot pirate ships off the coast.

DAY 7 | 18 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images13.jpg

In Naples you’ll discover fresh produce nurtured by volcanic soil. Along with wonderful food, you’ll find the ruined city of Pompeii, buried by a volcanic eruption in AD 79. Equally as haunting is Herculaneum, where artful frescoes offer a glimpse into a town that lay forgotten until the 18th century.

DAY 8 | 19 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images14.jpg
Civitavecchia (Rome) - Disembark Silver Spirit and Florence Hotel Stay

Today you’ll disembark in Rome and transfer to the cradle of the Renaissance, Florence, for an overnight hotel stay. The capital of the Tuscany region is an achingly romantic city of rivers, bridges and Renaissance art and architecture. Some of the city’s most iconic sights are the Duomo, a cathedral with a striking terracotta-tiled dome, the illustrious Ponte Vecchio and Piazzale Michelangelo which boasts panoramic views of the city.

DAY 9 | 20 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images15.jpg
Lake Garda - Hotel Stay

Next you’ll transfer to Eala in Lake Garda, a luxury five-star hotel that embodies the essence of this destination. Named after the graceful swan in Celtic, this hotel sweeps you off your feet with its elegant spa, park and private beach, not to mention its stunning views of Lake Garda at its best – enclosed by majestic mountains and sapphire waters at its feet.

DAY 10 | 21 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images15.jpg
Lake Garda - Hotel Stay

Visit Sirmione and delve into its thermal springs, extraordinary castle and Roman ruins; or Riva del Garda with its medieval fortifications and cobblestone streets. Each little town on the lake brings a chocolate box of new discoveries: a church resplendent with Renaissance frescoes, a botanical garden, a cable car soaring high into snow peaked mountains – there’s so much to discover.

DAY 11 | 22 May
Silver Spirit VCE-FCO 12May21 VSOE_images16.jpg
Verona - Embark Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Return to London in elegance on board the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Enjoy the opulent surroundings of the 1920s carriages as you swish through the European countryside, passing stunning alpine scenery as you enjoy a three-course lunch and later, a four-course dinner, served in the most regal style.

DAY 12 | 23 May
London - Disembark Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

After breakfast in your cabin, a quick stop in Paris and a delicious brunch, you’ll arrive at the French coast to cross the channel. On the other side, a glass of champagne will welcome you home before you take afternoon tea aboard the glamorous British Pullman, which will whisk you home to London.
