• Luxury Po Holidays
  • Overview

    Enjoy history, art and culinary delights on your journey along a section of the river Po, Italy’s longest river at almost 700km. Starting in Venice experience the highlights of the city and its surrounding islands, and call on picturesque fishing villages and historic towns of Northern Italy before returning to Venice.

    In Venice amble through the historic Castello district and find quiet lanes and hidden gems, cruise around the scenic Venetian Lagoon and enjoy an exclusive evening at St Mark’s Basilica after-hours before starting on your voyage along the river Po. Discover the charming fishing village of Chioggia on a bike ride along the lagoon’s beaches, or join local fishermen for shellfish harvesting and a deliciously fresh lunch of steamed mussels. Visit medieval Padua on a morning walk, learn to make fresh pasta in Northern Italy’s culinary capital Bologna, and discover the Renaissance gem of Ferrara, a tranquil UNESCO-listed city with impressive medieval city walls and a towering castle complete with moat and drawbridge.

    Heading back towards Venice visit a wine estate on the island of Mazzorbo to sample its luscious, golden wine made from the unique Dorona grape. On the island of Torcello, marvel at the 11th century mosaics at the church of Santa Maria dell’ Assunta on a private, early morning visit with an art historian, and on Burano see the art of lace making. Back in Venice pick up local ingredients for the evening’s dinner with the ship’s chef at the lively Rialto market, or join an art historian for a tour of the Accademia, home to the greatest collection of Venetian Renaissance paintings in the world.
