Imagine a stage of 121 islands and 435 bridges, with a backdrop of marble palaces and paved stone passageways. The plot is rich with history, drama, culture, commerce and arts. The star is none other than the noble lady herself, Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic; with her serene yet ethereal appearance she dominates the waters with unmatchable regality. Embrace Venice's romantic spirit and enjoy the picturesque blend between buildings and meandering waterways as you interact with the charismatic Venetians over a refreshing Bellini or one of the many local delicacies. Get to the other islands and experience Venetian life at a slower pace as you admire world-class masters craft exquisite glass pieces and laced embroidery.
