Italian river cruises

Get a taste of la dolce vita with a cruise on the Italian Waterways

Few cities in their entirety are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and none contain more artistic masterpieces in one square kilometre than Venice.

The picturesque floating city of Venice is undoubtedly the highlight of any Italian river cruise, although its lagoon location in the Adriatic means it's not your typical river cruise destination!

With our river cruises in Venice, you can explore the wildlife-rich waters of the island-studded lagoon, which is fed by the Po and Piave Rivers, and sail across the bay to explore such treasures as serene Chioggia and medieval Padua. You can also see beautiful Lake Garda, with a hotel stay included.

Cruises of 11 nights or more include our VIP door-to-door travel service.
