Venice to Milan and Lake Como Special Offer

Discover three of Italy’s most breathtaking regions on an exciting cruise, before enjoying a hotel stay in glamorous Milan or Lake Maggiore, from where you’ll visit Lake Como, overlooked by elegant villas and fairytale castles.

During your time in the romantic city of Venice, capital of the Veneto region, perhaps join the guided tour of the incredible Doge’s Palace and Saint Mark’s Square, or head to the colourful islands of the Venetian Lagoon.

Pretty Chioggia is your gateway to Vicenza which straddles the Bacchiglione River, while Torretta is just a stone’s throw from Verona which has a quaint medieval old town. Mantua is a delight to explore and a city steeped in history as it was ruled by the House of Gonzaga for almost 400 years.

Sample the delights of Parma on an optional tour, before leaving the ship and travelling to the fashion capital of Milan or tranquil Lake Maggiore for a two-night hotel stay. Enjoy a guided tour of Como including a visit to the remarkable cathedral, as well as a boat tour of glistening Lake Como.
