Day 1 Arrive in Venice, where we will check into our four-star hotel overlooking the lagoon. Enjoy free time until we meet for dinner to enjoy local specialties.

Optional local activities will be offered for a fee to those interested in additional exploration. We will meet for dinner in the evening and then have the evening free to relax or explore.


Day 3 Our guided boat tour will take us through Venice and onto the islands of Burano and Murano. A private tour of the internationally acclaimed exhibition of Berengo Glass awaits us on Murano. The afternoon is again free followed by dinner.


Day 4 Casanova and Galileo once sailed the Brenta Waterway and so will we on our private riverboat. As we sail from St. Mark’s Square, we will view the famous villas of Venice merchants from the 1600s. A delicious lunch will be served onboard. Our boat arrives near Padua where we board a bus to Parma to check into our city-center four-star hotel. We will have ample time to roam the city and shop or see the ornate local cathedral.


Day 5  Parma offers us two food tours to sample Italy’s finest: Parmigiano and Prosciutto, both directly from the source. Yes! Our special lunch will also be filled with Parmigiano cheese. After we will head to Tuscany to start our next adventure!
