We have wonderful museum contacts in Milan and can open doors after they are closed to the public to the city’s most spectacular art collections.

Lakes Isola Bella

Wandering along the city's canals designed by Leonardo da Vinci, you can discover art from the Middle-Ages to the contemporary. Ponder the famous Last Supper by Leonardo in the monastery complex of Santa Maria delle Grazie, or enjoy an opera at the world-renowned La Scala. Milan serves as a base for exploring the jewels of Lombardy: the art city of Bergamo, one of Italy's delights; and the barbarian Lombard capital of Monza, which preserves the Iron Crown of the Holy Roman Emperors.

Unsurprisingly given the popularity of the Amalfi coast and Capri there are many hotels to choose from. But over the years we have found a handful which are head and shoulders above the rest. We can also arrange for you to stay in a spectacular private villa.

Capri Hotel

Our local guide for the Amalfi Coast is fabulous: she is an art historian, a brilliant teacher and has been guiding in the region for over 20 years.

Capri Villa Axel Munthe

We can arrange for you to do magical day trips by private boat around Capri and down the dramatic Amalfi coastline. All this can be done from the comfort of one hotel.

Besides the glamourous spots, there are many fascinating places of art and architectural interest, not to mention gardens and ancient ruins to explore. We have made a point of visiting all these places ourselves over the years and can advise on our favourites.

Naples is the perfect spot to explore regions further afield, from Herculaneum and Pompei to Ischia and Capri. Our full Bay of Naples tour is 10 days long but can be shortened to 3 days or extended as you wish.
