Take in the enchanting sights and atmosphere of one of Europe's most romantic cities from the comfort of Michelangelo, your floating hotel, conveniently moored to enjoy Venice from a unique perspective.
Visit the magnificent palaces, cruise on the famous Lagoon, take advantage of the shopping opportunities, cruise to the Bay of Venice and sail on to Chioggia, a town laced with canals. This cruise ship tour is one of the most enchanting ways to take in the romantic city.
You'll be picked up at home and whisked off to your departure point in a private, air-conditioned car, and we'll be waiting to take you home too.
Our private home pick-up service is included up to 50 miles to your departure airport. Your driver will happily load and unload your luggage, and drive you to your departure terminal. At the close of your trip, you'll be welcomed by your driver in the arrivals hall and returned home again. A supplement is payable per mile over 50 miles.

Good value for money as all drinks were free even the coffee which I thought was great as I drink a lot of coffee. The staff on the ship couldn't be more helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We would do it again.
Beautiful and easy walking distance when docked to the sites. Staff amazing and so helpful and attentive.
Unfortunately this river cruise is owned by a French company and therefore was very intentive if you were french. The English were left on the back burner and not given the same standard of care, in my opinion, on the boat. We arrived early for check in and basicly sent away to eat else where without even asking if we would like to freshen up, use the toilet facilities etc when we had been travelling for over 8 hours. When we finished our holiday the Reception staff (French) didnt even look up to say good bye! Such a shame as if we had been given a good service on the boat this would have been a better review.
Venice was as beautiful as ever. Staying on the Michelangelo made the holiday, it was like being at a big house party, such fun. I thought it was very good value for money. The boat was moored in a very convenient position with wonderful views from our cabin. The ship's crew were lovely and worked very hard to make the holiday perfect.
Total meals included:
Travel to Venice where you will be met and transferred to your ship, Michelangelo, for embarkation. After comfortably settling into your cabin, the crew will be introduced at a welcome cocktail before dinner. The evening in Venice is free to do as you please.
This morning, perhaps join the optional excursion to magnificent Doge's Palace and Piazza San Marco. The Doge or leader of Venice's former palace dominates Venice and is one of the must see museums in the world. A stunning exterior decorated in Gothic style with an open portico. It was also the location for the republic's prisons, some of which were accessed by one of Venice's most famous bridges the 'Bridge of Sighs'. Later, cruise on the Lagoon and perhaps join the optional tour of the colourful island of Burano, renowned for its lacemaking before visiting the nearby island of Murano on an optional tour, famed for its glass-blowing artisans. Alternatively, enjoy free time in Venice to explore.
Today, perhaps take the optional guided tour of a gondola workshop and a Venetian Carnival mask-making workshop. Later, cruise on the Lagoon. The afternoon and evening in Venice are free to do as you please.
Cruise to the Bay of Venice and sail to Chioggia, a picturesque town laced with canals, for free time to explore at leisure. After lunch back on board, perhaps join the optional excursion to Padua - a medieval gem famous for its Old Town, iconic Pedrocchi coffee house and lovely St Anthony's Basilica. Rejoin your ship in Venice for a gala evening on board.
After breakfast, disembark your ship and transfer to the airport for your flight to the UK.
