Your Destination —
Day 1: UK - Venice
Fly to Venice where you will be met and transferred to your ship, MS Michelangelo, for embarkation. Enjoy a welcome cocktail party and dinner as your ship cruises towards 7 Martyrs Quay, close to St Mark's Square. MS Michelangelo is then conveniently moored for visiting the must see sights in Venice from the quayside.
One of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice is a place that tops the wanderlust list of many travellers. With palaces of epic grandeur, enchanting alleyways linked by picturesque bridges and classic Venetian architecture lining the waterways; this city is knitted together by a network of canals, each one telling its own little love story.
Start your enchanting journey as you set sail on the beautiful Venice Lagoon and on towards the sparkling Adriatic Sea. During the morning, enjoy the amenities on board your ship or simply relax on deck. After reaching Taglio di Po in the early afternoon, why not take an optional excursion to Padua? This picturesque town is enclosed by ancient walls and has a latticework of arcaded streets opening out into a beautiful central piazza. The tour takes in the famous Basilica of St Anthony and allows plenty of time to stroll around its charming streets. Later, rejoin your ship in Polesella.
This morning, visit the beautiful medieval town of Ferrara, awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO. Ferrara has several breathtaking palaces, dating back to the 14th century, which hosted the court of the house of Este. Rejoin your ship for lunch before visiting picturesque Verona by coach. With a long roll call of sights including a dazzling Roman amphitheatre, a cavernous medieval Basilica and Juliet's legendary balcony, this beautiful city has justifiably been granted UNESCO World Heritage status.
Arrive in Chioggia mid morning and enjoy time at leisure in this typical Adriatic fishing port. You may wish to stroll beside its canals, sip a cappuccino or frappé at one of its many open-air cafés or simply enjoy its relaxed, sleepy atmosphere.
This afternoon, sail back to Venice where you'll have free time to explore this entrancing city. Perhaps admire its stunning Rialto Bridge, meander along its latticework of canals to discover hidden piazzas or just watch the world go by in glorious St Mark's Square. Alternatively, why not join an optional excursion to see the Doge's Palace that dominates St Mark's Square and is one of the world's must visit museums?
This morning, why not join the optional sightseeing tour to two of the Lagoon's most colourful and charming islands? The tour takes in delightful Murano, famous for its glass-blowing industry and where quiet canals are flanked by terracotta-painted houses, pretty churches and fascinating glassworks and museums.
The second port of call is Burano, at the northern end of the Lagoon. This captivating place is famed for its brightly-coloured houses, arched bridges and lacemaking school and museum. This afternoon, enjoy free time to explore the delights of Venice at leisure.
