CARNIVAL IN VENICE

To capture the historic mystery of Venice one must experience the sensual and unique splendor during the amazing Carnival of Venice.

 

This is the time when the famed Venetian masks leave their hanging places on the walls, when the streets and canals of Venice are transformed by imagination and costumes of every kind. Magnificent processions, masquerades, traditional ceremonies, music and all-round festivities fill the canals, squares and palaces of this ancient city. Join us for a dazzling adventure filled with musicians, acrobats, and revelers!

 

Leaving Venice we’ll take to touring the beautiful hill country of Veneto for the flavors of Prosecco, Soave and Amarone. Framed by the Dolomites, it is a place of peace, tranquility, natural beauty that offers the microclimates for producing delicious wines. We will visit enchanting Asolo, the pearl of Veneto. Then journey the Prosecco Route for bubbles and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside which have inspired poets and writers over the centuries. Your time here will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.
