Enchanting and romantic Venice is made up of over a hundred islands with 400 bridges and 2,000 alleys. It is filled with adventure, culture, art, shopping, eating and history and each day I will guide you through this maze to my favourite spots and then set you free in the late afternoons to wander and discover your Venice.

Included of course will be many exciting vaporetto boat trips along the Grand Canal where we will be able to see the "front doors" of palaces built when Venice was the world's richest city. One trip will end at Piazza San Marco where we will also visit Doge's Palace (the most powerful 1/2 acre in Europe for 400 years) and the Basilica San Marco which has housed St. Marc's relics since A.D. 830. One afternoon can be spent at the Rialto market feasting our eyes on the abundance of vegetables, fruits, meats, fish and everything else one could imagine.

The Peggy Guggenheim Museum collection is a must see as well as a visit to Accademia Gallery filled with the best Venetian paintings AND our tour of La Fenice opera house will astound you with opulence beyond your imagination.

I always tell foks to save Venice for last - but why wait.
