MAIN HIGHLIGHTS
Milan Shopping
We can begin our itinerary from the heart of the luxury shopping area in Milan: Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and Via Sant'Andrea, elegant streets that together with Via Manzoni, Via Borgospesso and Via Santo Spirito are the outer limits of the famous Fashion Quadrilatero. This area contains the most prestigious boutiques and showrooms in the world, full of minimalist design and high tech, that follow on without any nd to this continuity, and provide a triumph of consumer stimulus that only a select few can respond to. In this square area, that is really extremely expensive, luxury is the true protagonist. Dazzling jewels created by the most famous name, clothes and accessories to die for, to be owned and flaunted, shoes that are works of art. Everything reeks of ostentation and the splendor of a chic, fashionable lifestyle.
Venice Water Bus
The Vaporetto get both locals and visitors to the places they want and need to go throughout Venice. Because traveling the canals is the easiest way to get around the city, the water bus have long been the most efficient and cost-effective modes of transportation, aside from walking.
Verona Arena
a 2000 year old Roman Arena and it's still going strong. The opera stage is the largest in the world. In the summer months the arena hosts opera and other performances.
Verona - Piazza dei Signori
a central square including a statue of Dante because he resided in Verona for a while.
Padua
Probably better known as the city of St. Anthony or as the economic capital of Veneto, Padua is one of the most important Art Cities in Italy. The artistic scene was dominated by Giotto, whose masterpiece is the decoration of the Scrovegni Chapel (1303-13
Verona - Piazza delle Erbe
It used to be the Roman Forum but now it’s a wonderful open air market surrounded by historic buildings with frescoes and peppered with sculptures.
Venice
Venice is one of the most interesting and lovely places in the world. This sanctuary on a lagoon is virtually the same as it was six hundred years ago, which adds to the fascinating character. Venice has decayed since its heyday and is heavily touristed (there are slightly more tourists than residents), but the romantic charm remains. A walk through narrow calli (paths), across the 400 bridges that span the 114 canals will reviel modern live an old world charisma.
Carnival in Venice
One of the world’s most famous carnivals, the Venetian Carnival dates back to 1162 originating from a Shrovetide ceremony. For ten days before Lent the streets of Venice are flooded with masked people in full costume. Originally, this was a time for festivities when Venetians allowed themselves to break every law before the austerity of Lent and remain anonymous while doing so with the use of their masks.
Gondola Ride
Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies as your gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal. A relaxing and romantic gondola ride reveals all the charm, excitement and passion that is Venice — and The Venetian. € 36
Murano Glas
Glassmakers, on the island of Murano in the Venetian Lagoon, developed or refined technologies such as crystalline glass, glass with threads of gold, multicolored glass, and imitation gemstones made of glass. They also were the only people in Europe who knew how to make glass mirrors. Their virtual monopoly on quality glass lasted for centuries and still today Murano's artisans do produce beautiful works of contemporary art from glass.
