Dorchester Collection

The Dorchester Collection is bringing back the exhilaration of the journey with its Ultimate Grand Tour of Europe: a 12-day trip through London, Paris, Geneva, Milan and Rome by way of one cultural highlight after another.

Taking inspiration from the original Grand Tourists, who explored these same cities in search of art, history and culture in the 18th century, this modern-day incarnation retraces the footsteps of curious British aristocrats while adding a contemporary spin of its own.

Highlights from the highly ambitious itinerary include stays at all five Dorchester hotels: Le Meurice, in Paris; Hotel Principe di Savoia, in Milan; Hotel Eden, in Rome; Le Richemond, in Geneva; and the Dorchester, in London. Private, expert-led tours of the British Museum, the Louvre and La Scala Opera House (plus a private viewing of da Vinci’s The Last Supper in Milan) mingle with wine tastings, high teas and châteaux visits.

Michelin-starred dining is courtesy of chefs like Alain Ducasse and Fabio Ciervo, and transport is by helicopter, Eurostar, Mercedes, Maserati and vintage Citroën—proving that getting there (wherever it may be) really is half the fun. Price upon request; 44-18/2975-1038; grand-tourist.com.
