Trip Itinerary

Day 1 : UK – Venice
Fly into Marco Polo International Airport and get your first glimpse of the floating city from a water taxi which will take you to your hotel. Then head to the Piazza San Marco, the vibrant main square, which is a perfect spot to see some of the most famous landmarks in Venice. The Campanile (bell tower) and the Torre dell'Orologio (clock tower) overlook the square, while tourists flock to the sculptures and mosaics found in St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. The area around St Mark's Square is teeming with restaurants.
Day 2 : A night at the opera
Today is for exploring the city on foot, stop to rest your feet for a caffè at a coffee shop or two throughout the day. This evening, you head for the opera. This year, Le Fenice is showing operas by famous composers such as Verdi, Puccini and Vivaldi.Performances start around 7pm or 8pm and we recommend booking seats in the stalls to make sure you’re comfortable for the long performances.
Day 3 : Venice
After a night at the opera, there is another full day to explore Venice. Your last full day in Venice is the perfect time to explore some of the famous islands of the Venetian Lagoon. A boat will take you to Murano, famous for glass blowing and housing Venice’s glass factories. Tour a factory, watch a glass blowing demonstration and admire the distinctive ornaments and jewellery on display.

The picturesque island of Burano is next, with its colourful fishing cottages and boats. You may even catch some of the villagers sitting in the sun making some of Burano’s famous lace. Last stop is Torcello, an island with few inhabitants and a magnificent cathedral, the Basilica dei Santa Maria Assunta, in which you’ll find some impressive mosaics.   
Day 4 : Venice – UK
