This exciting new trip to Venice and the Veneto will give travelers an opportunity to visit Venice in depth since we'll have six and a half days there with our incredible guide, Luisella Romeo.  The other three days will be spent in Vicenza, Verona and Padova, all a short train ride away.  Luisella and I are still working out the itinerary so there will likely be some additions and changes, but rest assured that the final schedule will be full of variety and interest.  From Burano and Torcello to the Island of Giudecca to the Church of La Madonna del Orto, this is the tour that lovers of Venice have been waiting for!!
