Spend a few days relaxing on the sandy beaches, adjusting to the summer sun, before preparing to trade land for water.

Head downriver to the busy Venetian Lagoon to weave between vaporettos (waterbuses), circle St. Mark’s Square and explore the surrounding islands. Murano stars the world-famous glass workshops, while the craftspeople on Burano create lace masterpieces. Then it’s back upriver to the Riviera del Brenta. You’ll pass grand Venetian villas at Stra and Dolo, before fetching up at the university city of Padua. Head back to Casale to drop off your boat.
