Not far from the historic center is the Venice few tourists ever see: a series of islands scattered in the lagoon like gems, each with its own personality and charms. This river conference will be a deep immersion into the extraordinary hidden treasures of Venice and the outer islands of the Venetian lagoon.

Venice is a city of epic grandeur. Notorious for it's city built on canals, neighbourhood churches and eccentric people. Partnering with Uniworld, our conference cruise will highlight the absolute best on offer throughout Venice as we make our journey up and down the scenic Venice Lagoon, docking in some of the most incredible areas of the islands.

Venice is the cultural hub of Europe, which will be deeply experienced during this trip. The famous city is built on more than 100 small islands, connected by marble buildings and romantic canals that are as iconic as they are breathtaking.

The thoroughfare so fittingly called ‘Grand Canal’ through Venice echoes the history and stunning architecture lining the banks of these signature waterways.  

The true magic of Venice can be seen up close each day on this cruise, with special tastings of Venice-grown wine, private tours and an itinerary ideal for members of multiple generations.
