The IRT Society's Best-Loved Railway Journeys 2018 - 69

Verona

Florence

Day 2: Florence
Start your day with a sumptuous breakfast alfresco; an
incredible buffet of Italian delicacies awaits you. Then spend
the day exploring Florence. A
private car and guide are at
your disposal for a personal,
four-hour tour. Visit the Duomo,
made of green, pink, and white
marble; the Ponte Vecchio,
bridging the River Arno, built in
1345; the Pitti Palace, Florence's
largest palazzo; the Uffizi Gallery, the world's top repository
of Renaissance masterpieces;
Boboli Gardens; or the Galleria
dell' Accademia, which houses
Michelangelo's "David."
Day 3: Venice
Morning transfer to the railway
station. Board the high-speed
Eurostar Italia to Venice and
relax in your reserved, firstclass seat. We will arrange your
private transfer by boat to
the legendary Belmond Hotel
Cipriani, one of the world's most
famous hotels. The rest of the
day is at your leisure to explore
the grounds. Enjoy the swimming pool, tennis courts and
the Casanova Beauty & Well-

ness center, offering a range
of services. Stroll the gorgeous
garden, blooming with roses.
The hotel offers several dining
venues-our favorites were the
formal dining, now called Oro,
and the very popular and informal "Cip's Club," a great spot at
sunset. (Please let us arrange for
you well in advance.)
Day 4: Venice
Today is reserved for your
personal half-day tour of Venice.
Perhaps you would like a walking tour of "La Serenissima"-
the Most Serene Republic of
Venice. Or take in the city's most
famous sights: the Piazza San
Marco, Accademia Gallery, St.
Mark's Cathedral and Doge's
Palace. IRT guests have loved
visiting Murano with their
guide to shop for special glass.
The rest of your day is at your
leisure. Nothing beats a ride on
an ordinary "vaporetto"-water
taxi-to take in the sights. Highly recommended is the Café
Florian, on St. Mark's Square,
founded in 1720. Return to the
Cipriani via the 24-hour vintage
speedboat shuttle, docked right
by San Marco's Square.

Day 5: Venice SimplonOrient-Express
After breakfast, transfer by boat
to Santa Lucia Station. Proceed
to the waiting Venice SimplonOrient-Express and settle in to
your compartment. Soon, you
will make your way to one of
the dining cars for a sumptuous
lunch. Enjoy your leisurely day
on board as the train travels
through the beautiful scenery
of the Italian Dolomites and
the Swiss Alps. Afternoon tea is
served in your compartment.
After an exquisite four-course
dinner, you may want to relax in
the lounge car, while conversing
with other guests and listening
to the strains of Cole Porter or
George Gershwin, courtesy of
the on-board pianist.
Day 6: Belmond British Pullman
Continental breakfast is served
in your compartment. A delicious brunch is served in the
diner as you travel on towards
the Channel. At Calais Ville,
coaches shuttle you through
the tunnel and on to Folkestone,
where you will join the British
Pullman train for the trip to Lon-

don. Enjoy afternoon tea with
wine and a glass of champagne.
The train arrives into London's
Victoria station early evening.
