Waterways in Italy

Italy offers exceptional cruising waterways in the North. The Venice Lagoon can be navigated in complete freedom.An offshore bar separates 60.000 hectares of coast lagoons from the sea and protecting the cities of Venice and Murano. 150 kilometers of canals and rivers with only 2 locks will lead you to deserted islands, vineyards, olive groves and their splendid villas. The canals are now a quaint upscale neighborhood in Venice. Fully restored and remodeled homes make it a postcard scene along the canal shores. Venice California originally was to be a copy of Venice, Italy, canals and all. Few of the original canals remain today.Venice, Italy is one of the most popular cruise ports in Southern Europe, handling more than 500 ship departures and 700,000 cruise passengers per year. The city is located within the Venetian Lagoon, which has a port entrance that leads to the Adriatic Sea. Its cruise-ship piers are within walking distance of the historic enter, and Venice's Marco Polo Airport is only about 6 km or 4 miles away.

The Venice Lagoon has more than 80 islands to explore, so there is always plenty to see and do. See glass-blowers in action on the historic island of Murano, watch the lacemakers on Burano and visit the imposing cathedral on Torcello. The rivers and canals around the lagoon offer something different again. The spring water River Sile winds its way through the countryside past attractive villages all the way to charming Treviso, an amazing city full of Italian art, museums and restaurants. Follow the River Brenta to Padova alongside elegant summer houses and villas belonging to the Italian nobility.Or why not explore the Po Delta – this vast nature reserve close to our base at Porto Levante is a perfect contrast to the hustle and bustle of Venice. Suave Italian beach resorts line the coast and offer a chance to soak up the sunshine in style.Spend your time cruising the classic Venetian islands of the Northern Lagoon - Murano, Burano and Torcello, as well as the wonderful waterways city of Venice. Some of the oldest settlements of the Venetian lagoon are to be found on its northern islands where centuries - old traditions of lace-making and glass blowing can still be seen today. This cruise can also be done as a 3-day Short Break – just reduce the time spent visiting the islands according to your preferences.
