There is a morning walking tour which takes in the Doge's Palace and the historic Castello district. The afternoon is at leisure for you to explore independently. Later, enjoy a private after-hours visit to Saint Mark's Basilica. Note: It is not always possible to arrange an after-hours visit to St. Mark’s Basilica. If religious functions or festivities are taking place in the evening, we will visit during regular hours. For Generations departures, there is a tailored visit to the Doge's Palace.

Day 3 - Chioggia - Padua

Head to the medieval walled city of Padua, one of Italy's oldest towns. Here many notable scholars sought academic freedom including Galileo and Copernicus. Alternatively, opt for the Venice walking tour or one of the exciting ways of seeing Chioggia - sailing through the Po delta, riding on a traditional bragozzo or biking through the fishing town. On Generations departures, explore by bicycle and stop at the beaches.

Day 5 - Chioggia

Visit Chioggia's market, a colourful and boisterous scene. Please note: We are obliged to comply with Italian Maritime Authorities who require that the ship is only manned by crew during the Adriatic Sea passage. Therefore, all guests must disembark the ship and partake in the featured excursions.

Day 6 - Burano - Mazzorbo

Spend the day exploring the Venice Lagoon. Discover Burano, renowned for its colourful houses and lace making tradition, before heading to Mazzorbo, where you can enjoy a special wine tasting.
