Solo - Scenic Lake Orta
Day 1 UK - Milan - Lake Orta
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Milan. We arrive in Lake Orta and enjoy a welcome drink, dinner and musical entertainment.
Day 2 Lake Orta
Today is free for you to explore your scenic surroundings. You may choose to join a boat trip on this jewel-like lake, leaving directly from the hotel’s landing stage and stopping in Orta San Giulio and the island of San Giulio.
Day 3 Visp - Zermatt - Gornergrat - Täsch
Experience some superbly scenic rail journeys into and around Switzerland, as we journey from Visp to Zermatt, at the foot of Matterhorn. After walking the short distance to Gornergrat Bahn, we’ll join a further train to Gornergrat - a rocky ridge overlooking the Gorner Glacier. We arrive at the spectacular viewing platform at lunchtime, before taking a train to Täsch this afternoon.
Day 4 Lake Orta
Spend the day at leisure enjoying the lake. Relax at the hotel or perhaps walk up to the UNESCO-listed collection of chapels in the hills above Orta San Giulio.
Day 5 Aosta
Today we’ll visit the attractive mountain town of Aosta, surrounded by some of the highest peaks in the Alps - Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc), Monte Cervino (the Matterhorn) and Monte Rosa. Enjoy a guided walking tour to discover the delights of this ancient town, founded by the Gauls before being taken by the Romans in 25 BC. After taking in the Roman remains and medieval history here, we’ll tuck in to a lunch of local specialities.
Day 6 Lake Orta
Relax by the lake or join an optional full-day excursion to Milan - Italy’s centre for art, fashion and business. You’ll discover the Cimitero Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery), Castello Sforzesco, and La Scala opera house and theatrical museum as part of a guided tour. You’ll also visit the city’s wedding-cake cathedral, the Duomo di Milano.
Day 7 Lake Orta
Spend your final day at leisure. Your coach is available for a return transfer to Stresa, on the banks of Lake Maggiore. This small and pleasant town is well-known for its weekly market and boasts an attractive old town centre. Local boats make the short journey back and forth between the Borromean Islands just offshore - a visit to one (or more) of them is well worth it.
Day 8 Lake Orta - Milan - UK
Transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
