Day 4 and 5 will be spent in Paris, basing yourself at the opulent Hôtel de Crillon. You will have ultra-exclusive access to the illustrious Bollinger Estate, tour their vineyards and descend into the fabled 1829 Reserve, a rarely-seen home to 3,000 magnums.

In the next leg of the Assignment, speed is of the essence. Arrive at the glorious Côte d’Azur on your private helicopter, settle for the night at the magnificent Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. The next day celebrate Bond’s maritime legend with a private yacht charter along the resplendent Côte d’Azur, dine at the exquisite La Réserve de la Mala.

Your next destination will be the golden shores of Lake Como, you’ll travel here in style, driving in your own full-throttled Aston Martin V8 Vantage and stay at the magnificent Passalaqua – a renovated, 18th century former abode of the Italian aristocracy. All whilst turning these glamorous waters into your private playground with experiences such as seaplane, that will arc and yaw high above the lake. Landing upon the waters with an elegant glide, you’ll take a private water-ski lesson.
The journey continues from Lake Como to the immensely captivating city of Venice, where a speedboat will bring you to the vibrant island of Murano, known for its exquisite glassware. Bond and Chang squared off here beside the illustrious Coppa Barovier in the 1979 film Moonraker.
