BOOK YOUR HOLIDAY TODAY!
Venice is at its alluring best at wintertime. Join us for a Christmas unlike any other, spent relaxing in a four-star hotel, discovering the mysteries of Venice and perhaps exploring the region on optional excursions to Verona and Padua.
Fly to Italy, meet your Tour Manager and board our coach for the transfer to your hotel in Mirano, a quiet town just 12 miles inland from Venice itself. You'll be greeted with a complimentary drink when you arrive, and then be free to relax until dinner.
Today we visit Venice. Get a first taste of this astonishing city's canals, cobbled pathways and hidden squares on an included walking tour, then head off to explore, or relax, as you see fit. Cross the Rialto Bridge, step into St Marks Square, visit the Palace of the Doge and perhaps even sit back in a gondola or board the Vaporetto with the locals for a trip along the Grand Canal.
Our destination on today's optional excursion is Padua. Lovingly restored after WWII, this former Roman stronghold, is a delightful, enchanting university city with outstanding museums, great churches, colourful markets and - in Prato della Valle - Italy's largest town square.
Day Three (Christmas Eve)
This evening begin your celebrations with a special Christmas Eve dinner.
Christmas Day begins with a breathtaking cruise on The Venetian Lagoon and a spectacular view of the city. Returning to your hotel, you'll sit down for a festive turkey lunch and then have the afternoon and evening free to relax until dinner.
Day Four (Christmas Day)
Set on the banks of the River Adige, Verona is home, not just to "Juliet and her Romeo", but to one of the world's best-preserved Roman amphitheatres, the cafe-crowded Piazza Bra and the maze of 13th-century streets surrounding bustling Piazza delle' Erbe.
Join our optional excursion and discover the brooding alleyways and hidden gardens that nurtured Shakespeare's story of "star-crossed lovers".
Say goodbye to your hotel and hosts, today, and transfer back to the airport to check in for your flight home.
