ALL THE DETAILS
+ NORTHERN ITALY + SWITZERLAND TRIP SUMMARY
This TEN day itinerary through Northern Italy and Switzerland will leave you breathless! From exploring some of Italy's most iconic cities (Milan, Lake Como, Bolzano, Venice and Florence, Fiesole and more) to traversing the mountainous terrain of Lugano, Switzerland and the Dolomites, we'll explore every city's nooks and crannies, as well as hike, drop-in to foreign boxes and more.
This trip showcases Italian culture at it's finest...with many of the VRX tour guides having lived in these cities for multiple years each, we know we'll be able to show you the absolute best Northern Italy + Switzerland has to offer in ten days. We'll pub crawl, have multiple group dinners, shop, tour famous tourist sites, as well as see the highlights off the beaten path. The BEST part about this trip will be our excursions into the Dolomites...with some of the best hiking in Europe, we'll ride Gondolas to the top and will see the steep cliffs and jagged edges up close and personal. It will be incredible, trust us.
We'll end the trip with several days in Florence, one of the most magical cities in all of Europe. A traveler's haven with countless memories to be had. And don't worry...you'll see some of Italy and Switzerland's best boxes to boot.

+ WHY YOU SHOULD BOOK
Northern Italy is considered off the beaten path. Lots of people travel to Milan and Venice, but that's about as far as they go in terms of Northern Italy. Let us show you the ropes when it comes to Lake Como, Lugano, the Dolomites and Bolzano.
With a plethora of hiking and box drop-ins on this trip, you'll have an amazing time in the outdoors and will get plenty of exercise. This isn't a tour, it's an adventure, and you're going to work hard, then play harder with a couple AWESOME days back in Florence, Italy (where a lot of our team has lived).
So, kick back, sign-up, get ready to hike and replenish yourself with the incredible culinary delights of Northern Italy + Switzerland.
+ FUN FACT
"CIAO!" = (CHOW) MEANS HELLO IN ITALIAN.
'HO AVUTO TROPPO VINO' MEANS = I'VE HAD TOO MUCH WINE.
