4 Days / 3 Nights – from July 1st to 4th 2019
Monday July 1st – Venice
Your guide will meet you upon arrival at the Hotel.
Check-in, drop off your bags, and happily trot-off to discover Venice.
After some free time to rest or for a “Neighbourhood orientation”, we have organized for you a guided walking tour through the most characteristic and important places of the history of Venice (about 3 hours). An essential tour for the understanding of Venice and its main monuments: Palazzo Ducale, Bell Tower, Clock Tower, Marco Polo’s House, Basilica San Marco and its wonderful square.
Return to hotel and overnight.
For lunch and dinner our local assistant will be happy to suggest restaurants or typical “bacari” (=wine bar) according to your wishes.
Tuesday July 2nd – Murano and Burano Islands
Breakfast at the hotel. Then ready to explore the islands of Murano and Burano, the most famous and traditional destinations among the small islands in the Lagoon. The meeting point of this excursion will be nearby St Marco Square.
In Murano, known throughout the world for its glassmaking Art, you will visit a Furnace to see glass products being made and have the opportunity to buy a piece of the local production on site.
The tour will then continue towards Burano: the island famous for its lace-making and for the brightly-coloured fishermens’ houses, painted in this way in order to let the fishermen see them from long distance, according to a legend. Lunch in a typical restaurant during the excursion.
Return to Venice and free time. Your local assistant will be pleased to suggest you other visits to the city or simply a nice walk to reach places with a stunning view for an aperitif or dinner.
Wednesday July 3rd – Venice
Breakfast at the hotel. Morning free for shopping or relax or to visit other magnificent museums and palaces. In the afternoon a private guided movie itinerary will allow you to see the palaces, squares and streets filmed in the famous movies directed in Venice, the city of the International Film Festival since 1932. Venice has been chosen by some of the most important directors who saw in Venice the perfect set for a number of films (like The Tourist, Casino Royale, Everyone says I love You and many others). At the end farewell drink in a typical venetian wine bar where you will taste ‘cicchetti’ traditional Venetian finger food.
