Gems of Northern Italy (2017) : River Countess

10 Days From Milan To Venice


Experience the highlights of bella Italia on this intimate cruise and tour.

Your odyssey through Northern Italy begins in Milan, home to Da Vinci's The Last Supper, and ends in legendary Venice, with enticing excursions to explore "hidden gems" in medieval Padua, once home to Galileo and Copernicus; Italy's culinary epicenter, Bologna; Verona, literary home of Romeo and Juliet; and UNESCO-designated Ferrara. Spend unforgettable five nights in Venice onboard a luxurious, floating boutique hotel docked in a truly sublime location-the city's famous Grand Canal. You'll have ample time to soak up the enchantment of this ethereal locale, including forays to two of its outer islands, Burano and Mazzorbo. Other highlights include a rare after-hours visit to St. Mark's Basilica, an excursion to the charming fishing village of Chioggia, and a multi-course lunch complete with paired wine at a historic estate in Valpolicella.
