Discover the vast collection of treasures inside the Vatican Museums after the crowds have gone. This small-group (no more than 12 people) tour includes a guided walk around the museums and Sistine Chapel by an art expert, plus dinner in a traditional Roman restaurant.
It might be a cliché, but a gondola ride really is the best way of exploring Venice’s famous waterways. Your gondolier will guide you through the city’s network of canals, allowing you to view historic bridges and elegant waterside palazzos up close.
The best part of these private tours is that you can design your own itinerary. Have your personal guide take you around the Rialto Market and Santa Croce neighbourhood, or ask them to lead you through the Doge's Palace explaining the building's rich history - it's completely up to you.
This fantastic culinary experience at the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa starts with the creation of a personalised menu, which you'll devise with the chef. You'll both then pop out to the local market to pick up fresh ingredients, before heading back to the hotel for a one-on-one cooking lesson and a tasting session with local wine.
You'll glide around Italy's capital in a private Mercedes on this classic city tour, with a guide to lead you around big-name attractions like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. You can also tailor-make your route to include whichever sights you fancy.
Staff at the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello can arrange a glamorous trip to the private beaches of Conca dei Marini. A convertible Fiat 600 will take you down to Amalfi, where you'll board a traditional gozzo boat and head off to the beaches. Don't forget your picnic, which will be specially prepared by the hotel's chef.
Add a touch of glamour to your tour of Lake Como with the Grand Hotel Tremezzo's period Venetian motor launch. This shiny mahogany vessel will whisk you across the water to explore grand villas and pretty towns.
