Venice is not to be missed. During your extension, you will stay in a historic, family-run hotel located just a few steps from St. Mark’s Square and a short walk from all the main sights that this amazing city offers. Whether you decide to explore the intricate maze of narrow streets or travel as locals do, by vaporetto (water bus), you will be astonished by the decorated palaces, museums, picturesque bridges, gondolas, churches and little squares that are so unique to this city. View masterpieces by Titian, Bellini and Donatello. Venture to Murano, the famous glass-blowing center, and relax at an outdoor café at the Piazza San Marco. This historic city is truly a must-see!

Only available with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $195
 

Day 1 - Independent exploration of Venice

Built on 118 islands in a shallow lagoon, Venice is a city like no other. It contains more than 150 canals and 400 bridges, which are delightful to explore by gondola or vaporetto (water bus). Today you might take a vaporetto to visit some of these islands. 

Much of the city can also be seen on foot. Be sure to visit the Grand Canal and the famous Rialto Bridge, as well as St. Mark's Basilica, one of the best examples of Byzantine architecture in Europe. Other spots not to miss include the Bridge of Sighs (said to have provided prisoners with their last view of freedom before their incarceration), the Doge's Palace, the Gallerie dell'Accademia and the island of Murano, famed for its glass-blowing. Your centrally located hotel will make it easy to access all the wonderful features this famous city has to offer.
 
NOTE: Italian museums are closed on Mondays. 

Day 2 - Independent exploration of Venice

Continue your exploration of Venice.

Day 3 - Depart for the U.S.

*Please note: For guests with early-morning departures, breakfast at the hotel may not be available. Please check with the front desk to verify the times that breakfast is served.
