Itinerary from Uniworld offers the highlights of Venice and more
In Venice, the itinerary allows guests to explore the Dorsoduro and San Marco districts on foot, as well as to tour the Doge Palace with a local guide. Visitors will walk over the Bridge of Sighs, originally called the Prisoners’ Bridge (but renamed by Lord Byron), to its connecting prison.
In addition, guests take a scenic boat ride along the Grand Canal and are treated to a private viewing of Saint Mark’s Basilica – sure to be a highlight of the trip, as well as a lifelong memory.
Other highlights of the itinerary include the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, the historic center of Verona and trips to sites associated with the real-life Capulet and Montague families made famous by Shakespeare’s fictional play, “Romeo and Juliet,” who actually lived in Verona.
Guests can also choose to extend their Uniworld journey in Italy by booking the 13-day Splendors of Italy vacation, which explores the aforementioned route with the addition of Florence and Rome.
