ITINERARY
Day 1 SINGAPORE – ROME

Meals on Board
Assemble at Singapore Changi Airport and set off for Rome, Italy, where you are a step closer to La Dolce Vita. Note If you are flying by Singapore Airlines, you will assemble at the airport on the night of Day 1. However, the flight only departs after midnight.

Day 2 ROME – VATICAN CITY – ROME
Meals on Board/Lunch/Dinner
Begin your morning by visiting the legendary Vatican City, the world’s smallest country. Over here, you will witness St Peter's Basilica, one of the most famous and biggest churches in the world. Next, view Colosseum in its resplendent glory, ancient gladiators once battled each other for the public’s entertainment here. If you close your eyes and concentrate hard, you might hear the roaring crowd rooting for their favourite gladiator. In the afternoon, make a wish at the baroque Trevi Fountain before visiting Spanish Steps, the widest staircase in Europe. Movie buffs take heed, for you might find this attraction familiar as it was made rather famous by the film “Roman Holiday”, starring Audrey Hepburn. Thereafter, shop along Via Condotti, one of Rome’s most elegant shopping streets and an epicenter for your haute couture fix.

Day 3 ROME
Breakfast
Spend the day at leisure. You may also choose to take an optional excursion to Pompeii and Naples or simply enjoy more shopping. As the night falls, why not sip a glass of prosecco at a sidewalk café in the Piazza Navona and enjoy life’s pageantry passing by?

Day 4 ROME – FLORENCE
Breakfast
This morning, you leave Rome for Florence, via Italo train. Italo is a premium private high-speed train, which is the Ferrari of trains, and even the cars are painted a racy rich Burgundy red. Today, spend the day at leisure traversing this city; that has been ranked by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, due to Florence's artistic and architectural heritage.

Day 5 FLORENCE
Breakfast
Spend the day at leisure exploring this glorious city. Traverse the medieval streets to the Ponte Vecchio, haggle for leather goods at the market around San Croce or relax amid the terraces of the Boboli Gardens. Or perhaps enjoy an optional excursion through the Tuscan landscapes to the delightful towns of Siena and San Gimignano. Tonight, why not make the most of your time in the Tuscan capital and savour some of Italy’s finest cuisine?

Day 6 FLORENCE – VENICE
Breakfast/Italian Lunch
Journey along the Italian Alps to Venice and take a motor launch to splendidly divine St Mark’s Square. See famed monuments such as St Mark’s Basilica, which features the craved likenesses of the Roman Empire’s 4 rulers, the Doge’s Palace, which is one of the main landmarks of the city and also serves as a museum, and the Bridge of Sighs, so-named because it was the last glimpse of freedom that convicts had before they were imprisoned and St Mark’s Campanile, a replica of the original watchtower that collapsed in 1902. Visit a Venetian glass factory and be fascinated by a master glassblower’s demonstration. If time and weather is in your favour, board the unforgettable gondola ride at your own expense.

Day 7 VENICE – MILAN
Breakfast
Today, head to Milan, fashion capital of Italy. Upon arrival, explore the city at your own leisure. Visit Duomo and the glass and steel Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the first building in Italy to be lit by electricity.

Day 8 MILAN – LUCERNE
Breakfast/Dinner
After breakfast, enjoy the scenic views of mountains and serene countryside as you journey on to the picturesque township of Lucerne, Switzerland. Next, take a walking tour to Chapel Bridge and Lion Monument. Then, spend the rest of the day at leisure to relax or shop for branded watches, famous Swiss chocolates and music boxes.
