Itinerary

Meet the tour leader at the Malta International Airport at 0640hrs to check in for your direct flight to Treviso airport departing at 0840hrs. Upon arrival at 1040hrs, your private coach will pick you up to take you to your hotel in Mestre for check in & room allocation. Late morning you can join your tour leader by public transport (extra) for a visit to Venice’s last Carnival Day celebrating the highest tribute to the Leone di San Marco, symbol of the city, as a lion painted on a large canvas will fly up to the bell tower over the audience in the square. To welcome him, on stage of San Marco, twelve young ladies from Venezia, the “Marie” will greet the flag. Return at the hotel and overnight.

What better place to celebrate Valentine’s Day, than Verona, the city that has been the backdrop to one of the most poignant love stories in romantic literature, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by William Shakespeare. Upon arrival we meet our local guide and we start to visit the Arena di Verona (entrance extra) one of the largest of the ancient Roman Empire. The most famous attraction is undoubtfully Romeo and Juliet balcony: Verona welcomes many places related to the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, but this is definitely the most romantic and representative! The Romeo and Juliet’s balcony overlooks the small courtyard of Juliet’s house, where you can also admire the famous statue dedicated to the ill-fated lover. After some free time for some personal sightseeing, you will return back to your hotel. It’s Valentine’s night and you are in Venice; can it be more romantic?

Breakfast at your own leisure. Late morning we encourage you to join the tour leader for an optional Half day excursion to the quiet islands of Murano & Burano. An exciting and fascinating tour dedicated to those who want to discover the two most famous islands of the Venetian lagoon and savour every moment of their picturesque and relaxing atmosphere. Located north of the historic center of Venice, about 20 minutes by boat, Murano and Burano offer beautiful handicrafts that have made them famous worldwide: the first is characterized by the centuries-old glass manufacturing, the second for its sophisticated lace, not to mention the original colorful buildings. Visiting Murano and Burano will give you the most authentic and unusual side of Venice! Return at the hotel and overnight.

Today after breakfast, we offer you another spectacular optional day excursion to the Dolomites & Cortina d’Ampezzo. Visit some of the most beautiful scenery that the Dolomites has to offer. Start with a stop at the birthplace of Titian, an enchanting mountain village. Here you can enjoy some free time for a walk around and some breathe taking pictures. After lunch (optional) in a typical restaurant, we will visit the famous resort of Cortina D’ Ampezzo, Italy’s top ski resort famous because of the splendid scenery offered by the mountains that surround it. Return at the hotel and overnight.

Today, after breakfast, we offer you an optional full day excursion to the Valdobbiadene area, for the famous Prosecco Wine Tasting. Just a short drive from Venice in the region of Veneto lies the home of Prosecco. This 20 mile road twists and turns through hilly vineyards, the narrow streets of tiny villages and along the tops of mountains. We stop to enjoy our wine tasting experience in a typical local vineyard. We leave the fantastic scenery behind us and proceed to Treviso, a lively old town with picturesque views and a vibrant city life. Our local guide will guide us to Piazza dei Signori, dotted with historic buildings like the Palazzo dei Trecento and Loggia Dei Cavalieri (any entrances are extra). Return at the hotel and overnight.
