Venice to Mantua Special Offer

Join Michelangelo on this exciting cruise from the heart of Venice to the beautiful city of Mantua, surrounded by stunning lakes.

Journey through the heart of three of Italy's most spectacular regions. Veneto is where you'll find the enchanting city of Venice, home to world-famous treasures including Doge's Palace and Saint Mark's Square. Lombardy offers amazing panoramas and you'll have the opportunity to discover Mantua and Cremona, while the region of Emilia-Romagna is renowned for its cuisine, especially the city of Parma.

Optional excursions enhance this unique voyage. Discover the colourful islands of the Venetian Lagoon, join a bike tour of Verona with a visit to the Giusti Gardens, and explore Mandua, where the House of Gonzaga ruled for almost 400 years. There is also an optional tour of Parma, known for its Parma ham and Parmesan cheese.
