With so many holidays cancelled in 2020, Merrion has created this Grand Tour of Italy to allow guests to have four luxury holidays in one. The 15 night itinerary will allow guests to experience a selection of Italy’s most famous landscapes, from the majestic Dolomites and the rolling hills of Tuscany to the magical Pontine Islands and cultural landmark of Rome, in ultimate luxury with every detail taken care of and no request too great. Even the seamless travel between destinations will be spent in the height of luxury either in helicopters or Mercedes Limousines.
Launching in the late spring, the trip begins with a helicopter pick up in Bolzano directly to White Deer San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge in the Dolomites. Formerly a 16th century hunting lodge for Italian aristocracy, this private chalet is located at 1,200 metres in the pristine woods of Val Pusteria and offers total isolation and privacy. It is home to the finest accommodation and exquisite Italian cuisine which uses only the best local, organic produce and is complemented by fine wines of the South Tyrol. Guests can enjoy hiking in the surrounding area or simply enjoy relaxing and enjoying the pool, sauna and nearby golf course.
