An Exclusive €100,000 Grand Tour of Europe With Rocco Forte Hotels

(Hotel de Russe/ Rocco Forte Hotels)

Rocco Forte Hotels is celebrating the big 2-0 in a big way. To mark its 20th anniversary, the luxury hotel collection has cooked up an “Extraordinary European Journey” to provide guests with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sir Rocco Forte, Chairman of Rocco Forte Hotels, and his sister Olga Polizzi, Director of Design, curated the 12-day journey—reminiscent of the Grand Tours of the 19th century—in six cities with Rocco Forte Hotels. Price tag for this epic adventure? €100,000 for two nights in a suite in each of these six hotels: Brown’s Hotel, London; Hotel Savoy, Florence; Hotel de Russie, Rome; The Balmoral, Edinburgh; Hotel Astoria, St Petersburg; and Hotel de Rome, Berlin.

The tour provides insider access to cultural experiences. A few examples: In London, Brown’s Hotel’s Tailor-In-Residence, Huntsman, will take your measurements for a bespoke suit from Savile Row tailors, then you'll get an exclusive after-hours tour of Buckingham Palace’s State Rooms. In Florence, you’ll have an after-hours guided tour of the famous Uffizi Gallery. At the Balmoral in Scotland, you’ll indulge in a meal at the Michelin-starred restaurant, Number One, and then receive a gift from Scottish jeweler and Royal Warrant holder, Hamilton & Inches. Catch a ballet at the legendary Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg (with backstage access) then get a limo tour of the city with a personal photographer.

First established two decades ago, Rocco Forte Hotels now comprises 11 hotels and resorts in Europe and Jeddah. The company is led by a family who’s been in the hospitality industry for four generations. Future openings include Rome and Shanghai in 2018.
