Voyages Jules Verne

Venice from the Water

Visit Venice, Chioggia and the lagoon from the MS Michelangelo- including an exclusive Voyages Jules Verne departure on 16th October 2016

It was due to the threat from aggressive invaders that the Venetians originally retreated to the lagoon and created a safe city haven of islands and canals. It thus seems apposite to stay on a boat with easy access to central Venice and which also affords a means to explore the lagoon and its lagoon islands including Chioggia, Burano and Torcello.

In addition, such an arrangement avoids the high costs associated with Venice's hotels and being based on water gives you a different perspective of this intriguing city, taking you comfortably away from the crowded, enervating bustle of a land-based stay.
