Italy

Italy is not necessarily known for river cruises, but come and discover the Po River and Venice. River cruises in Italy center around Venice, often offering several days to explore its canals and cathedrals for a weeks cruise or experience a longer Cruise and stay holiday with the Italian favourites of Florence, Rome and Milan added in.

Chioggoa
Chioggia, sometimes called “Little Venice,” at the southern end of the lagoon a picturesque fishing village, a popular place for artists,with beaches lining the lagoon. The seaside air and sweeping views are simply spectacular.

Florence

Florence offers innumerable treasures of art and architecture. The city rose to international prominence in the 14th century under the rule of the Medici family, who played a significant part in European politics for the next 300 years. Besides being masterful politicians, the Medici were the greatest patrons of art in Europe, employing Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Titian, Fra Angelico and Giotto, to name only a few. These are the treasures awaiting you, along with Renaissance architecture, seductive vistas—and world-famous gelato.

Milan

Milan is a mecca for Italian fashionistas, famous for its innovative design and stylish flair. Venture inside the city’s hulking Gothic cathedral, as well as its cathedral to capitalism, Europe’s oldest shopping arcade.

Polesella(Bologna or Ferrara)
Bologna or Ferrara? If you have an appetite for pasta, head to Bologna—the heart of Italian culinary traditions—and learn how to make (and eat!) your own lunch. Or visit UNESCO-designated Ferrara, a beautifully preserved Renaissance city where you can indulge your appetite for art with an excursion to Ferrara, an ancient center for the arts that once rivaled Medici Florence.

Rome
A list of Rome’s top cultural sites reads like a roll call of history—the ancient Forum, the Pantheon and St. Peter’s Cathedral, just to name a few.

We’ll show you the highlights on a discovery tour that includes a look inside the Colosseum and a heart of the city stroll.

Venice
A magical and unique city, seawater laps at the foot of thousand-year-old houses— and sometimes rises above the doorsteps—but the glorious palaces and romantic canals enchant visitors just as they have for centuries.
