Venice - Welcome to Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic
Today you touch down in miraculous Venice, one of the world’s most beautiful cities and recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in its entirety. A private car will take you from the airport to a private water taxi, which will deliver you right to the doors of your hotel while offering a sensational introduction to the magic of this magnificent metropolis. Enjoy lunch at one of the local restaurants – the seafood is, as you would expect, excellent, but the Venetians make pretty good pizza, too – and set out for the world-famous Harry’s Bar, the birthplace of carpaccio and the delicious Bellini cocktail. Enjoy a quick peak at the establishment that has served drinks to everyone from literary luminaries to European royalty before setting out on a one-of-a-kind tour of this unforgettable city as you cruise the waterways, passing the most famous buildings in Venice on board an iconic gondola. These long, sleek black boats may be in part relics of Venice’s bright past, but in the hands of a skillful gondolier they can offer a romantic and enchanting introduction to the City of the Canals.
