Uncover the extraordinary hidden treasures of Venice and Northern Italy
You’ll encounter unforgettable sights on this odyssey through Northern Italy that begins in Milan, home to Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and ends in legendary Venice, the “Queen of the Adriatic.” These two iconic cities bookend an exploration of Northern Italy that rewards the curious traveler with amazing experiences in Verona, Padua, Bologna and Ferrara.

Travel from dynamic Milan to romantic Venice. Soak up the enchantment of “The City of Water” and two outer lying Venetian islands, Burano and Mazzorbo. Be treated to an exclusive evening opening and lighting ceremony at St. Mark’s Basilica. Discover the charm of seaside Chioggia loved by fishermen and artists alike. Enjoy a multi-course lunch complete with wine pairings at a historic wine estate in Valpolicella.
