There is nowhere else on earth like Venice. The busy city’s streets of water and the tiny islands of its lagoon combine in a unique UNESCO enclave. The tour is a similarly fitting combination, quietly based on an elegant boat, with all the sights at the foot of the gangplank

Since its medieval golden days, Venice has been revered for its art and architecture. Known as La Serenissima, the marble city is squeezed onto a hundred islets, interwoven with canals and bridges, a great, flamboyant, living museum. The lagoon is a broad but shallow spread around it, dotted with sleepy islands, some all but abandoned, others brimming with old world charm. Making full use of the watery topography, this tour is based aboard the stylish cruiser, MS Michelangelo; calmly removed from the crowds, while effortlessly visiting the unmissable sights. The ‘best of both worlds’ concept extends to the itinerary in a flexible blend of included activities, optional excursions, and time for independent exploration. Two cruises on the lagoon are included, the first at the northern end, to rural Mazzorbo, linked by a long footbridge to Burano Island and its impossibly pretty rows of pastel painted houses; the second floating south, past tiny islets, to the leisurely pace of Choggia. Optional excursions include the city’s must-see monument, St Mark’s Basilica; Murano Island, its canal-sides awash with displays of its famous glass; a walk through less-visited Venice; and historic Padua, home to Italy’s largest piazza.
