Venice is a city of romance and intrigue, seductive masquerades and enchanting hidden neighborhoods. The streets create a labyrinth and offer secluded getaways while the restaurants place tables and chairs alongside the quiet lapping waters of the lagoon for an idyllic dinner graced with candlelight. Your flight will arrive at Marco Polo Airport, and your private transfer will greet you. You make your way to the edge of the famous Grand Canal and board a private boat bound for the dock of your luxurious hotel as the vaporettos cruise down the water casting wakes behind them.
Gondoliers paddle on the narrow waterways ducking beneath the arching bridges. Settle into the comforts of your accommodation which will blend the opulence of a former palace of the Republic with the comfort of modern luxuries. Your guide will greet you in the lavish lobby of your hotel eager to lead you on a fabulous introductory tour of Venice.
Bakery windows are filled with delectable fritters stuffed with cream as mask shops showcase the fine art of papier-mâché painted with elegant hands to promote the picturesque history of an exuberant banquet. Your guide will lead you through the bustling and charming bacari, the cozy restaurants serving traditional cicchetti, little dishes. A traditional dish of long, thick noodles are similar to spaghetti and dressed in a sauce of onion and cured-fish creates a delicious welcome to the city. You can sip your glass of wine and listen to the water lapping against the stone canal and savor the romantic ambiance of Venice.
