What's Not Included

Itinerary
1
Day 1
Venice, Italy

The breathtaking city of Venice is situated on 120 islands formed by 177 canals. Venice is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world thanks in some part to works by Titian, Tintoretto, Bellini, Veronese and Canaletto.

Shuttle buses take you from the port to Piazzale Roma, where you can walk or take a watertaxi into the city centre. The most famous piazza in Venice is St Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco), where you will find St Mark's Cathedral, the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale) and the bell tower. At the back of the Doge's Palace is the famous Bridge of Sighs but the city’s most iconic bridge has to be the Rialto, lined with a double row of shops. This proudly straddles the Grand Canal, the principal traffic artery of Venice.

With the Stucky Mill, Chiesa del Redentore, the impressive Basilica della Madonna della Salute, the Punta della Dogana and the ancient Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio all waiting to be uncovered, places of interest come thick and fast in Venice.

During the 14th century, Venice grew to be one of the wealthiest trading cities in the world. The peak of the Venetian power was reached during the 15th century when Gallipoli, Cyprus and Crete were conquered and the empire was enhanced by the many talented Renaissance artists the city boasted.

Day 3
Padua, Italy

Also known as Padova, the northeastern Italian city of Padua is located just outside Venice. This charming city is home to a number of cathedrals and chapels – many of which are open to the public. Alternatively, Padua is also a great place in which to sit back with a coffee and people watch from one of the renowned Piazzas.

4
Day 4
Polesella, Italy

Located along the Po River in the Veneto region of Italy is the town of Polesella. Perfectly positioned to the southwest of Venice, from here you can visit some of Italy’s finest destinations. Bologna, with its stunning palaces and squares, Ferrara residence of the Este Dukes or Verona, famous home of the greatest love story ever told, are all a short journey away.

5
Day 5
Taglio di Po, Italy

Sat on the banks of the Po River in the Italian Veneto region is the town of Taglio di Po. From here you can visit the ancient city of Padua, famous for its frescoes by Giotto in the Scrovegni Chapel, and for being the setting for Shakespeare’s ‘Taming of the Shrew’.

6
Day 6
Verona, Italy

The setting of arguably Shakespeare’s most famous play (as well as The Taming of the Shrew and The Two Gentlemen of Verona), Verona is a place where star-crossed lovers come to celebrate their love. This beautiful Italian city stands either side of the River Adige and attracts tourists from all over the world in search of art in its many forms. As well as fantastic theatre and opera venues, travellers flock to Juliet’s balcony on Via Cappello to experience the romantic atmosphere and touch the bronze statue for luck.

Like many Italian cities, Verona has a distinct Roman past. It features many ruined buildings and structures such as the country’s third-largest amphitheatre, various bridges and monuments, and remnants of the old city walls. Today, Verona is a celebrated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
