Gems of Northern Italy

from R 39 200 per person

Set sail from stunning Milan and disembark in romantic Venice. These two legendary cities (Milan—home to Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and Venice—the “Queen of the Adriatic”) will bookend unforgettable experiences set along Northern Italy’s exquisite coastline.

Travel from dynamic Milan to romantic Venice and treat yourself to a private evening opening and lighting ceremony at St. Mark’s Basilica. Depart the enchanting “City of Water” to explore the waterfront shops, colourful facades and peaceful canals unique to Burano, Mazzorbo and Torcello. Farther south, discover Chioggia—a charming southern port loved by fisherman, artists and anyone looking for unique gifts or souvenirs. Head inland to enjoy a multicourse lunch, complete with decadent wine pairings, at a historic wine estate in the vineyards of Valpolicella. Enjoy additional shopping time in “bountiful” Bologna and medieval Padua, once home to Galileo and Copernicus. Your “Gems of Northern Italy” venture wouldn’t be complete without a visit to UNESCO-designated Ferrara and Verona, the famed city of Romeo and Juliet.
