Being one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Italy is an ideal place for hotel barging. Its beautiful canals and rivers roll through diverse landscapes, from picturesque lagoon islands with their colorful houses, to wild beach dunes and pine woods with an abundance of birdlife. These waterways were once used for trade by Romans and early Mediterranean settlers before them and are ideal for gaining knowledge about many cultures, including Roman, Etruscan, Istrian, Byzantine and of course Renaissance, that have influenced the arts, architecture and history of the region over many centuries.
If you want to explore the beautiful landscapes and get an insight into the ancient culture of Italy, an Italy Cruise is the perfect choice. Aboard the Italy Cruise, you can enjoy exploring Northern Italy in a royal and relaxing way.
Venice is the highlight of any Italian cruise. The lagoon surrounding Venice, the Venice Lido beach, Hemingway’s influence and the fabulous waterside Villas; all add to the attractions of Venice. Delicious seafood, local culinary specialities, fine wines and attentive service complete the picture of this fairytale adventure. You can cruise between the romance and architecture of Venice, to the captivating lakeside setting of the Renaissance city of Mantua. Mantua is in central northern Italy, and has been a hub of art, culture and music for centuries. The route inland takes you along the River Po and the Bianco Canal through the Po Valley.
