Sail to the Italian Floating City of Venice
Bursting at the seams with its opulent architecture and truly unique maze of winding streets created by the Grand Canal, Venice has long been one of the top destinations to take in as part of your Mediterranean cruise. Your cruise will take you right into the heart of the city at St. Mark’s Square, allowing you to savour the sights of this magnificent city.
Feeling slightly flash with your cash, you can start your trip as you float along the stunning, world-renowned Grand Canal onboard your personal gondola, being serenaded by your own Venetian crooner during their trip. Watch the intricate work of the Venetian craftsmen in their workshops on the island of Murano, as they create the specialty glass work from just a molten blob. Travel across the lagoon to Burano Island and sample some of the best seafood you’ll ever taste, whilst taking in the rainbow of Italian houses.
Another must is a visit to Harry’s Bar, where the bellini cocktail was invented. You will discover in Venice that one of the most addictive activities here is simply to order a coffee, or something slightly stronger, sit outside in a piazza and just watch the world pass by.
This truly unique and ornate city has too much to take in for one trip!
Venice is a busy cruise port, and the flights have been specially scheduled to connect with cruise departures.
