Bare Bones Venice
Venice’s maritime republic, which spanned almost 1,000 years, has given us a staggering collection of art, architecture and history, in a truly evocative setting. On this 5-day tour, we travel on foot and by boat to the city’s best destinations, many of them world-renowned, others lesser known – from the evocative streets of Europe’s oldest Jewish ghetto, to the Arsenale Shipyard and the Casino Venier, all in the company of your expert guide. This trip also offers daily opportunities to wander the city unguided, with plenty of time free to follow your interest wherever it may lead.
