ITINERARY

Day 1
Upon arrival into Venice Airport, private transfer to 4-star accommodation

Once you have settled into your accommodation, make your own way to St Marks square for your early evening Wine Tasting Tour to enjoy a wine tasting in a typical Venice local: You will taste four quality wines from Italy with some cold cuts and fresh cheese cutting boards or with some “cicchetti”, typical well-known small snacks normally served in Venetian bàcari and widespread worldwide. You will also enjoy the art of food & wine pairing! The right wine for any occasion. Italy is one of the most important country in the world for wine. Your wine expert will enlighten you on all the wines you will drink and suggest you the best food combination to taste them in the right way.

Day 2
After breakfast, you will enjoy your Islands Tour of Murano, Burano & Torcello.

Sailing past the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, the Public Gardens, the tip of Sant’Elena and the Lido famous beach resort, the boat arrives at Murano known throughout the world for its glass manufacturing industry. Enjoy a 40 minute stop to visit one of the factories.
The picturesque island of Burano, famous not only for its lace but also for its fishermen’s houses painted in bright colours. The stop will last 30 minutes. After a short sail of about 10 minutes you will reach Torcello, the earliest centre of civilisation in the estuary. Only the Cathedral with its magnificent mosaics and the church of Santa Fosca remain as testimony of its former glory. The stop is about 30 minutes.   

Day 3
Morning at leisure. An afternoon tour to explore the Venice of the Doges through its symbolic palace and a pleasant walk.

The tour is made of two parts: during the first one, we will visit the famous Doge’s Palace, one of the most important symbols of Venice. For centuries, it has represented the seat of the Venetian political power. In its majestic rooms, the Doge and his Council for centuries controlled the fate of the Serenissima surrounded by hundreds of masterpieces of painting art. Strolling among its majestic halls and paintings, it will be like going back to the time of the Republic of the Serenissima. The second part of the tour will take us off the beaten track discovering the hidden treasures of Venice, as well as the quieter and more charming corners of the city.

This beautiful walking tour will take us among some of the most suggestive corners of Venice, starting from La Fenice Theater (external).  Another particular and hidden corner we will discover is the "Scala of the Bovolo", an extraordinary example of Venetian architecture. During our walk we will be escorted by our professional guide, who will make the tour even more captivating by telling interesting facts about Venice while visiting its most famous sites. The last part of the tour will be the shared gondola. Slide among centuries of history and picturesque views on a traditional Venetian gondola, an experience hardly to forget.
