Italian Adventures & Greek Island Odyssey: Includes the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and hotel stays in Florence and Venice

  • 14 Nights
  • 18 October 18
  • ms Koningsdam

The most-famous railway journey in the world, a journey on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is a true bucket-list adventure. Combine this with a stay in Florence and Venice, and a Mediterranean cruise on board the beautiful ms Koningsdam.

Fly to Rome and enjoy a tour of the city highlights including the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain before embarking ms Koningsdam. Setting sail, you’ll cruise the beautiful Adriatic coast, visiting historic Dubrovnik and Kotor, with its secluded piazzas, mountainous backdrop and beautiful cobbled streets. Next your journey takes you to four ports that showcase the history and beauty of Greece. Enjoy sun-bleached coastlines and lush scenery in Corfu, before you travel to Katakolon which serves as the gateway to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Experience a little more historic charm in Greece’s capital, Athens; a world centre of archaeological research including the iconic Acropolis, followed by the stunning island of Santorini, where villages cling to hilltops peppered with blue domed churches and the sunsets are some of the best in the world.

Italy awaits: Artistic and most definitely appetising, enjoy a visit to Naples before you sail back to Rome where you’ll disembark and travel to Florence for an overnight stay. Famously known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, the city is home to beautiful highlights including the wonderfully quirky Ponte Vecchio, San Firenze Square and the spectacular Duomo.

Next enjoy a two night stay in the enchanting city of Venice. Built on more than 100 small islands the preferred mode of transport through the city is by gondola - drifting leisurely along the Grand Canal past gorgeous piazzas and romantic landmarks is an iconic way to explore the city.

Some may say we’ve saved the best until last as you travel home encased in absolute luxury on board the exquisite Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Journey in original 1920s carriages, featuring Lalique glass panels, wood marquetry and wood burning stoves as you enjoy a series of unforgettable moments: Dine on a delicious champagne brunch; relax in your opulent cabin surrounded by plush fabrics and sip a cool cocktail in Bar 3674, accompanied by the strains of the soulful pianist as glittering lights appear on the passing hillsides. A journey on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is as close to time travel as it’s possible to get.
