Uniworld Cruises is now offering something I’ve never seen before. A 7 night round-trip river cruise from Venice. After crossing a bit of the Adriatic (or greater Venice Lagoon I’d say) you go inland. From various little cities you’ve never heard of, they offer land excursions by bus (included in fare) to Verona, Bologna, Ravenna & Padua (Padova).
I’d like to try this to see how it flows (no pun intended), but certainly these top tier towns not normally visited sounds interesting to me.
Here’s their own info:
Spend seven nights onboard Uniworld’s luxurious River Countess, your floating boutique hotel while you take in the best sights of Venice and its surroundings. You’ll discover one of the world’s most entrancing cities, Venice, the “Queen of the Adriatic,” in all its water-bound splendor. Cruise the storied Grand Canal, pause at the Bridge of Sighs, and follow the footsteps of the doges through their historic palace. Discover the glorious, surprisingly modern, frescoes of Giotto in 13th-century Padua. Uncover ancient mosaics in Ravenna, the last capital of Byzantine Empire in Italy. Savor Bologna, home of the first university in Europe and the culinary capital of northern Italy. Find romance in Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, and we’ll introduce you to Italy’s distinctive culinary delights by teaching you some of the tricks of the trade during a pasta-making workshop in Bologna, the culinary capital of northern Italy.
