Venice is all about the water. With more than 100 small breath-taking islands and countless canals, the city’s life is very much influenced by the sea. On this fascinating floating maze, the change of scene is guaranteed. On this three day break you will have the opportunity to discover both beautiful Venice as well as try some unique wine produced on the neighbouring islands.
After settling in at your convenience on the first day, you will have a free afternoon and evening to explore the Serenissima. After breakfast, on day two, a private chauffeured boat will meet you at your hotel and take you on a half day tour of the stunning islands. You will firstly be taken to Sant’Erasmo. Sant’Erasmo, also referred to as the vegetable garden of Venice is renowned for its artichokes and an artichokes festival takes place on the island every year. In addition, the island produces a premium white wine and you will be taken to a local winery for a tour of their facilities followed by a tasting of their tasty white wine. You will then be taken to the Mazzorbo Island where you will find the oldest vineyards of Venice. Here, you will be taken on a tour of a local estate and you will have a tasting of their remarkable wine. The wines produced on Mazzorbo are truly unique, the vines absorb the salt from the ground and give a slightly salty taste to the wine. After such an enlightening morning, you will be taken back to your hotel or somewhere else in Venice as preferred. You will have some free time for lunch as well as a free afternoon to relax and visit Venice independently. In the evening, head to the famous Saint Mark’s Square, where you will spend earlyevening in the timeless setting of the iconic Caffè Florian, the oldest European café, where an aperitivo will be served, alongside finger sandwiches.
