Switzerland, Italy & Austria

About

From the treasures of Geneva, Vienna and Milan, to the glorious mountainous landscapes of Zermatt, Innsbruck, and Salzburg, to the stunning scenery of world-famous Lake Como and the postcard perfect landscapes of Tuscany, and to Venice and its Grand Canal palaces. These are some of the most culturally rich and beautiful destinations of Europe, a wonderful mix of scenery ‘to die for’, history ‘to dive in to’, cultures ‘to aspire to’, and cuisines that make you go ‘weak at the knees’!

You should experience it because...

Venice has to be seen to be believed. It is an engineering marvel, with marble churches built atop ancient posts driven into the mud banks, a canal system that laps up to doorsteps, artistic masterpieces of the world, and some of the most beautiful architecture that you will ever see.

Glorious lakes, landscapes, rivers and cities

From the Ringstrasse to the Opera, Vienna has much to offer art and music lovers.

See the 17th-century Dom cathedral in Salzburg and explore Mozart’s home in the Alstadt.

Enjoy a breathtaking cruise along Lake Como and dock at the enchanting village of Bellagio for free time and shopping.

Experience the beauty of Tuscany – medieval hilltop fortresses, vine-planted hillsides and sculptural stands of cypress trees.
