Enjoy warm days and lighter, balmy evenings, long cool drinks and delicious ice creams on sun-filled terraces and in shady squares. European cities are often quieter, and more affordable, in high summer when their inhabitants flee for the coast. Lakes and mountains offer cooler climes and often a refreshing breeze.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you very much. The trip was for our first anniversary and will never be forgotten.
We had a terrific time. Both hotels were superb and the Orient Express was absolutely breathtaking and more than we could imagine. To top it off on the final leg home having tea on the British Pullman was an added bonus.
We saw some wonderful scenery (especially that famous curve) and met some really nice people.
