highlights

Lose yourself in the wonder and beauty of Northern Italy as you embark on the trip of a lifetime. Your first days in the Bel Paese (“beautiful country”) will be spent on a guided tour through the famous Italian lake districts of Como, Garda, and Maggiore. Allow yourself to indulge in these otherworldly surroundings only such a place can offer. You can relax completely knowing that all transportation and comfortable accommodations have been taken care of. 

Once you’ve had some time to savour the incredible views, and maybe spot a celeb or two, our journey continues! The next stage of our trip kicks off with a wonderful tour of Milan and Venice, showing you all the incredible sights as well as the lesser known gems. From there, it's time to board the gorgeous 6-star S.S. La Venezia, for a full-board cruise around the Venetian Islands and river Po. 

Travelling from dynamic Milan to romantic Venice, you’ll have the opportunity to treat yourself with a private opening and lighting reception at St. Mark’s Basilica. Take a detour at the enthralling “City of Water” to discover some coastal shops, colourful facades and quiet canals that define Burano, Mazzorbo and Torcello. Discover Chioggia, a charming southern harbor popular with fishermen, artists, and pretty much anyone searching for one-of-a-kind presents or souvenirs. In the Valpolicella Vineyards, head inland for a multicourse meal paired with an array of delicious wines at a classic winery. Allow time for some shopping in the lovely Bologa and historic Padua, once home to Galileo and Copernicus. And of course, we couldn’t curate a trip of this calibre without including a visit to UNESCO-designated Ferrara and Verona, the renowned home of Romeo and Juliet. 

The team at DealsAway have hand-selected every aspect of your Northern Italy experience to ensure that luxury, excellent service and unforgettable experiences are always front of mind. Giving you the perfect excuse to sit back, relax and enjoy as you uncover the Gems of Northern Italy.
