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.
