Why We Love This Deal
This 20-night luxury package from Imagine Holidays brings together some of Europe's most luxurious and in-demand travel experiences.
Your holiday begins in the Italian lakes, where you'll enjoy stays in Lakes Garda and Maggiore, tour the famed Lake Como and wind your way through the breathtaking Swiss Alps on the Bernina Express. You'll then climb aboard Silversea's Whisper cruise ship bound for the sparkling seas of the Mediterranean, stopping in Croatia and Montenegro before disembarking in Greece.
