Belgium & Luxembourg

Discover the very heart of Europe

Brussels, Belgium’s and European capital city, is full of Art Deco taverns, unique Flemish art, Gothic cathedrals, quaint guild houses, a charming town and a perfect destination for any visitor profile.
In less than one hour driving, Antwerp, one of the world’s significant seaports and Belgium’s second-biggest city. The city is a magnet for everyone from fashion moguls and club queens to art lovers and diamond dealers. Heading south, Wallonia, a French-speaking region of southern Belgium. It’s known for its medieval towns, Renaissance-era architecture and traditional Trappist beers. Last but not least, Luxembourg. The city feels like a symbiotic creation of nature and humankind: from the meandering Alzette river valley over the Bock Casemates to the modern buildings on the plateau in the distance.

Valpolicella and beyond

A unique experience in the Amazing Valpolicella and Lake Garda, close to Verona and Venice

Valpolicella wine region is one of the most prestigious Italian winemaking areas in the Veneto region. It is located northwest of the elegant Roman town of Verona (in the western corner of the Veneto).
We think Valpolicella’s name is incredibly fitting. According to the Oxford Companion to Wine, it comes from a mixture of Latin and Greek which translates as ‘the valley of many cellars’. It’s also known as the ‘pearl of Verona’, with wine production hidden away in the region’s foothills, just north of the Adige River, and is a shining example of everything the country has to offer.
Besides the stunning terraced vineyards, the region is dotted with pretty villages and hamlets. San Pietro in Cariano is admired for its gorgeous Venetian Villas such as Villa Serego and Villa Giona-Faiuoli, picturesque hamlets such as Marano, 17th-century church of Saint Peter the Apostle is one of the gems in this region, built over a Romanesque church. Verona is just a short drive away and second only to Rome in the number of fascinating Roman ruins.

Florence, Piedmont and Liguria

Discover Florence, the birthplace of Renaissance, Portovenere, the gate to the Cinque Terre, and the Piedmont countryside, the land of the finest Italian wines.

Florence, a charming small city with a turbulent history and economic and political power during the rule of the De Medici dynasty, is considered an open-air museum. Its palaces and churches house some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. The Cinque Terre (5 lands) is a string of five beautiful fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera in Liguria. The Cinque Terre is noted for its beauty. Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces to cultivate grapes and olives on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the Mediterranean Sea. Piedmont’s Barolo area, a gastronomic paradise famous for its rich pasta and white truffles, this noble wine region encompasses the town of Barolo and ten nearby municipalities. In addition to producing the most celebrated Italian wines, the robust, age-worthy Barolo, the area is also a delight to visit. You’ll stay in a charming modern-retrò style hotel in Florence, in a luxury accommodation nestled between the famous Cinque Terre and the inspirational Gulf of Poets in eastern Liguria, and in an outstanding relais in the Barolo area in Piedmont.

South Tyrol, Lake Garda & Prosecco Hills

Discover the authentic Tyrol, the Lake of Garda and dine in the Italian Alps, Prosecco Region, and city of Bolzano.

South Tyrol, also known as Alto Adige, is a natural and cultural gem hidden amid the valleys and the peaks of the Italian Dolomites and Alps. A region overflowing with castles, crystal clear lakes and vineyards, this region goes away beyond the visitors’ expectations. Not far from here, the “Lake of Garda”. With its 25 picturesque villages, the lake is rich with historical monuments, castles, and fortresses; it offers a comprehensive view of its history. The Prosecco hills, a UNESCO heritage, are part of the wine-growing landscape of the Prosecco wine production area. The landscape is characterized by ‘hogback’ hills, called “ciglioni” – small vines on narrow grassy terraces – forests, small villages and farmland. You’ll stay in such beautiful luxury accommodation right by the Lake of Garda throughout your journey, in a five-star hotel in Asolo, a town embedded in the picturesque Prosecco hills, and at last, in a Renaissance castle Bolzano, the principal city of South Tyrol.
