Between exploring the Colosseum, marvelling at the gilded tombs of St Peter's Basilica and wandering through atmospheric piazzas, travellers will be enchanted by the Eternal City.

Days 2-5 Lucca/Pisa/Florence

See the landscape transform from Romanesque cities to rolling hills and olive groves on a train journey to Tuscany. Cycle alongside the scenic Serchio River, glimpse Michelangelo's David in Florence, marvel at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, then head back to cosy apartments in lovely Lucca.

Days 6-7 Cinque Terre

Weave through the charming hillside villages of the Cinque Terre, taking the stunning coastal path high above the sea. Perhaps even cool off with a dip in the blue waters below.

Days 8-9 Milan/Stresa

Stroll through the ever-fashionable Milan and marvel at its magnificent Duomo. Travel by train to pristine Stresa, which boasts magnificent views of the Alps. Board a ferry and head out to explore the beautiful Borromean Islands - perhaps take in the hanging gardens of the romantic palatial residence on the shores of serene Lake Maggiore.

Days 10-11 Lucerne

Discover the idyllic surrounds of Switzerland's historic heart. Cruise placid Lake Lucerne, learn the story behind the emotive Lion Monument or take a ride on the world's steepest cogwheel railway to the summit of Mt Pilatus.

Days 15-16 Bern/Dijon/Beaune

Embark on an odyssey of indulgence in a region renowned for its boeuf bourguignon and mustard. A day trip to Beaune, where Burgundy's best wines are produced, is a tempting introduction to the Cote d'Or.

Stroll along the Seine and be enchanted by the city that has inspired artists and lovers throughout the ages.
