Starhotels Launches Bespoke Travel Offer

Share this:

Starhotels has launched its Grand Tour, a new bespoke travel offer featuring the prestigious Starhotels Collezione in Florence, Milan, Rome, Siena, Trieste, Venice, Vicenza, London and Paris.

In the early twentieth century, many of the hotels that are now part of Starhotels Collezione, such as the Helvetia & Bristol in Florence and the Hotel d’Inghilterra in Rome, became social gatherings loved by artists and writers, who stayed there for extended periods and left their mark on the history of the hotels.

With this in mind, Starhotels has reinterpreted the Grand Tour in a contemporary way, creating an itinerary that includes a stay of at least two nights in two Starhotels Collezione destinations.

Guests can choose from a selection of fascinating historical residences housed in antique Palazzos, offering refined style and impeccable service.

To make the itinerary even more memorable for guests, Craft Experiences are also available on request.

These immersive visits to the extraordinary artisan workshops that are part of Italy’s heritage allow guests to witness and take part in the crafting process of master artisans.

Experiences go from the Venetian mask workshop for guests of the Splendid Venice, to Rome’s ancient hat workshop offered to guests of Hotel d’Inghilterra, and the art of the Florentine mosaic for those who choose the Helvetia & Bristol in Florence.

These are in addition to the brand new Craft Experiences in the cities of Trieste, Vicenza and Siena, and others that can be organised on request in London and Paris.

These include a fashion history tour of Place Vendôme in Paris and beautiful calligraphy lessons given by Pineider’s expert calligraphers in their London boutique.

Pineider has also designed the welcome kit that Grand Tour guests will find in their room on arrival: a timeless gift, crafted by the historic Florentine leather goods brand, to take back with them as a true Grand Tour souvenir.

Finally, inspired by nineteenth-century journeys, a new cocktail has also been created by Cibréo, available in all the Starhotels Collezione.

The Viaggio in Italia is a reinterpretation of the Spritz, a delicious aperitif classic based on rhubarb and Italian sparkling wine, the pride of Made in Italy around the world.
The Grand Tour package includes:

  • A stay (not consecutive) in at least two Starhotels Collezione of the guest’s choice, in Italy,  Paris and London
  • A 20% discount with breakfast included
  • A bottle of Italian sparkling wine on arrival
  • A welcome souvenir crafted by the Florentine leather goods brand Pineider
  • On request and at the guest’s choice, artisan workshop experiences as part of La Grande Bellezza – The Dream Factory
