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 Orta San Giulio - Isola San Giulio
We’ll make our way to the town of Orta San Giulio, nestled into the hills. After a little exploration we’ll board a boat on this jewel-like lake, to the little island of San Giulio. On the island, we’ll visit the Romanesque Basilica di San Giulio. Please note: 2020 departures will have a free day today, maybe explore one of the local islands yourself.
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.
