  • Venice City Tour - 9:30AM-12:30PM

    Your English-speaking guide will pick you up at the hotel and will begin this 3-hour walking tour, to explore the main highlights of Venice city center. Venice is called La Serenissima, 'the most serene,' a reference to the majesty, wisdom and monstrous power of this city that was for centuries the unrivaled mistress of trade between Europe and the Orient and the bulwark of Christendom against the ties of Turkish expansion. "Most Serene" could also descirbe the way lovers of this miraculous city feel when they see it, imperturbably floating on its calm blue lagoon. Built entirely on water by men to defied the sea, Venice is unlike any other town. No matter how many times you've seen it in movies or on TV, the real thing is more dreamlike than you could ever imagine. Its landmarks, the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale, seem hardly Italian: delightfully idiosyncratic, they are exotic mixes of Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance styles.

    Shimmering sunlight and silvery mist soften every perspective here, and you understand how the city became renowned in the Renaissance for its artists' rendering of color. It's full of secrets, inexpressibly romantic, and at times give over entirely to pleasure. You'll see Venetians going about their daily affairs in vaporetti (water buses) aboard the traghetti (traditional gondola ferries) that carry them across the Grand Canal, in the campi (squares) and along the calli (narro streets). They are nothing if not skilled and remarkably tolerant in dealing with the veritable armies of tourists from all over the world who fill the city's streets for most of the year.

    Afternoon and evening at leisure

  • Day at leisure in Venice -OR- Optional Island Tour (at an additional cost)

    Islands Tour - Murano and Burano - 6 hours from 9:00AM to 3:00PM  

    This morning after breakfast, you will depart hotel for this amazing tour of the islands. An English-speaking guide will accompany us during the exploration.  

    You will depart by private boat and you will be transferred to Murano, known all over the world for its artistic glass production. Once there you will visit the island including a glass laboratory.  

    Glassmaking on Murano Island dates back centuries to about 1291 when the glassmakers on Venice were forced to relocate to Murano. The order was given by the Venetian government as a precautionary move to avert a devastating fire on Venice since most of the bridges and homes were constructed of wood. From there, Murano’s long and storied history was born as one of the most prominent centers of glassmaking in the world. Today, visitors can still see artisans making handcrafted glass in a number of foundries on Murano.  

    You will reach Burano afterward by private moor-launch, together with your assistant. Once on site the tour will be conducted on foot. Burano was one of the first colonized islands by the Altino’s inhabitants who tried to get away from the barbaric peoples who were invading northern Italy. Situated in the north-east position of the lagoon was and it is still subject to bora winds, fort this reason its name comes from “Porta Boreana”.  

    The island economy has always been on fishing and horticulture. The first homes called “casoni” were typical constructions made with reeds and mud and the floor of beaten earth. They were very poor typical constructions of earlier Venetian countryside and lagoon settlements.  

    Over the time, these primitive dwellings were replaced by brick houses painted with bright colours that we can still admire and which form the characteristic known throughout the world. Burano, however, became famous in the world for its lace-making, by attracting thousands of visitors mesmerized by its colours and the lace museum. Burano is divided into five small villages connected by some bridges: San Martino Destro (right), San Martino Sinistro (left), San Mauro, Giucecca and Terranova which are separated from their respective canals: Rio Ponticello, Rio Zuecca and Rio Terranova. The church of St. Martino, whose construction dates back to 1500s, is the most important of the island. It is located on the main square and its name comes from the musician “Baldassarre Galuppi” of the eighteenth century. It has a three naves latin cross floor plan and on the unfinished façade there is a lack of marble application. Within the building and worthy of note there are: Giambattista Tiepolo’s Crucifixion, Bernardino Prudenti’s altarpiece and Gerolamo of Santacroce’s altarpiece.

    Transfer back to your hotel afterwards.

    Rest of the day and dinner at leisure in Venice.

    Hotel L'Orologio - Deluxe Double Room with private bath, Breakfast included

  • After breakfast and check-out, board for a private group transfer to Trieste, where you will board your cruise ship in the early afternoon. Before reaching Trieste, you will have the chance to stop on the way for the visit of another beautiful city, Treviso.

    Treviso has been dubbed "Little Venice" because of its meandering, moss-banked canals. They can't really compare with Venice's spectacular waterways, but on the whole Treviso's historic center, with its medieval arcaded streets, has its own unique charm.

    Upon arrival you will meet your local English-speaking guide for a walking tour of the city center.
     
    A more apt description is "the painted city," for frescoed exteriors abound—a creative response to the area's lack of stone suitable for use as facades. There are fashionable shops and boutiques at every turn in the busy city center, which was a commercial hub as early as the 8th century and a hive of literary and artistic activity by the 13th century. Though a World War II Allied bombing on Good Friday 1944 destroyed half the city, Treviso meticulously preserved what remained of its old town's narrow streets while simultaneously introducing modernity far more gently than many other parts of Italy.
     
    Some free time for independent lunch if desired, will be available at the end of the guided tour.
     
    Board the motorcoach again at 1:00PM for the transfer to Trieste in time for embarkation of your cruise.
     
Hotel details:
  • The Hotel L'Orologio is a 4-star boutique hotel entirely dedicated to the world of haute horlogerie or fine watchmaking, situated in a wonderful location on the Grand Canal, close to the famous Rialto Bridge and 5 minutes’ walk from St Mark’s Square. The renowned architectural practice of Baciocci wished to showcase the existing structure and has created a modern and minimalist reinterpretation. 

    The hotel features typically Venetian materials, colours and finishes, such as Istrian stone and cocciopesto, and marries these with haute horlogerie aesthetics. On the ground floor the large space containing the reception, bar and lounge areas is unified by quartz concrete flooring in a warm red tone. The walls feature original wall tapestries restored and modernized with a red lime wash and the original wooden ceilings have been restored and maintained. The haute horlogerie theme is further developed by means of unique interpretations: original internal mechanisms in elegant boiseries in the reception area; large watch hands displayed in the bar area and faithful, working, reproductions of important collectors’ watches. Other unique collectors’ pieces are displayed in glass cases, accompanying clients into a fascinating world of passion for detail and design. The communal areas are enriched by bespoke furnishings such as the armchairs and small sofas in vintage leather. The intimate, diffused lighting also helps create a desirable and special atmosphere. References to the haute horlogerie theme continue on the upper floors and are manifested by elements such as the key card readers, door handles and the faithful reproductions of watches placed above the entrances to the rooms and in the focal points of the corridors. The fourth-floor terrace and L'O Bar offer the possibility of grabbing a snack or enjoying a traditional Venetian aperitif. The 43 rooms of Hotel L'Orologio in Venice - many of which directly overlook the Grand Canal - are presented with a distinctly modern and minimalist character whilst also bearing great attention to detail. The furnishings are characterized by their design elements and by being custom-made, as with the seating and lighting, and a great use of colour. All the rooms, being super-equipped and with avant-garde lighting, unite quality materials such as marble, wood and leather, with unusual combinations and effects.  The common thread present in all the rooms are the bright artworks created from the real mechanisms of watches. The bathrooms are made with precious marble, contrasting coloured fixtures and custom-made accessory elements.

Afterwards, wander through the many charming streets and "piazzas" immediately outside the palace. At the end of your tour, you may wish to take a stroll along the Riva, a chic coastal promenade lined with palm trees, where you can relax in the sun and enjoy a beautiful view of the port and nearby islands.

    Montenegro is a land of beautiful sandy beaches and high mountains, and today you will have the opportunity to explore some of this independent state.  

    Leaving Kotor this morning stop at the town of Perast for a visit to the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks, a Baroque edifice constructed in 1452 on a man-made islet. According to legend the islet was created over the centuries by the seamen who, after returning from each successful voyage, laid a rock in the bay. As time passed, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. The church contains 68 magnificent paintings by Tripo Kokolja, a 17th-century artist from Perast. His most important painting, measuring some ten yards long, is “The Death of the Virgin”.
    Travel to and from the island by boat – maximum capacity per boat is 25 people.

At the center of the Vatican lies the vast Basilica of St Peter, the world's largest church, protected by the colorfully dressed Swiss Guards. The Cathedral today is a beautiful mix of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, created from the handiwork of artistic masters such as Michelangelo. The stunning interior is an elaborate and detailed display of marble, mosaic, gilt and bronze.
