The great maritime Republic of Venice was once the Italian capital of trading, art and finance, and today it’s one of the world’s most alluring destinations.
Prepare to be enchanted by the watery topography of Venice: the city is comprised of 117 islands floating in the Venetian Lagoon! We’ll explore the legendary art and opulent architecture of the City of Bridges, traverse its canals, ride the Vaporetto (water bus), meet lots of friendly locals and eat plenty of delicious food. Venice is an absolutely amazing place, and it’s no secret, so the city can have a reputation of being overrun with tourists. While at times we’ll feel a part of the crowd, we’ve taken care to arrange lots of special exclusive experiences and find the best local guides to make sure our group gets a real behind the scenes look at “The Queen of the Adriatic.”
Then let’s head inland to the foothills of the Alps, just over an hour north of the city, to spend two nights at a gorgeous villa hotel where we’ll enjoy cooking classes with a Michelin-starred chef and also set out to sip some fizz at the wineries on the nearby “Prosecco Road,” the epicenter of Italy’s bubbly production. Yes, the Veneto region is as beguiling and special as it sounds, and we invite you to experience it with us!
