Venice to Mantua

Venice 8 nights Price from £3,598 per person

Traverse the historic waterways of northern Italy from the splendour of Venice to the Renaissance city of Mantua, including tranquil countryside, historic towns and exceptional art. There is no better way to explore Venice than from the water, and the 20 passenger La Bella Vita will spend a couple of days in the city itself, before gliding past the smaller islands of the lagoon to the Roman city of Chioggia, which resembles a smaller, unspoilt Venice. From here she travels through the delta of the River Po, home to flamingos and wild birds, and up the Canal Bianco, visiting the Etruscan town of Adria, Renaissance Ferrara and local vineyards. Arriving in lakeside Mantua, there will be time to explore the magnificent Palazzo Ducale with its vast collection of art including works by local residents Mantegna and Donatello. From Mantua you will return to Venice for your flight home. However, if you would like to extend your stay to include one of the other historic towns of northern Italy; Padua, Vicenza or Verona, speak to one of our experts. If you travel between June and August don’t forget to ask about tickets to an opera performance in Verona’s famous Arena – see back page for details of the special opera cruise.

Guaranteed entrance ticket to the Doge's palace

The stunning 'Palazzo Ducale' was the residence of the Doges and is the richest symbol of Venetian cultural, military, political and economic history. The tickets will allow you to avoid the lengthy queues and gain access to the Museo Correr and the National Archaelogical Museum. If you have visited the Doge's Palace before, we would be delighted to provide tickets to the Guggenheim or Accademia Galleries instead.
