The Trip of a Lifetime

Italy’s Veneto region 

Imagine a sunny afternoon spent sailing across the glittering waters of the Venetian Lagoon. You’ve just left the rainbow-hued island of Burano—where you spent the night docked in town, a cruising industry first so new they built the dock just for Uniworld—and now you’re on your way to Chioggia. Up on the sundeck, a waiter brings you glass after glass of prosecco to sip as you admire the view during a sommelier-led tasting. 

Then imagine the romantic streets of Venice, teeming with people and overflowing with everything from casual bars to world-famous historic sites. There’s something dazzling everywhere you turn, and with Uniworld, you’ll enjoy private early morning and after-hours visits to such showstoppers as the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. 

That’s Italy’s Veneto region: at times overwhelmingly delightful and at others indulgently slow. The area’s passion for life is infectious, and you can find it being enjoyed to the fullest in everything. A feast for the senses, Veneto is so dynamic that it can be hard to make the most out of it in one trip. 

A journey with Uniworld represents the perfect Venetian experience. As the only cruise ship small enough to dock in town, and the only hotel in Venice that floats, Uniworld’s S.S. La Venezia is the ideal home for your Venetian vacation. Every inch of this stunning Super Ship was designed in homage to Northern Italy’s legacy of fine craftsmanship. Intricate Murano glass and custom fabrics from renowned atelier Fortuny grace rooms across the ship for a luxe atmosphere unlike any other. 

Between skyrocketing hotel prices, daily meals, and expensive transportation, the costs of a do-it-yourself vacation in Venice start to add up. People are often surprised to find that a luxury cruise with Uniworld saves them money, but it’s no wonder when their all-inclusive price covers your boutique floating hotel room, three meals a day, unlimited drinks, a thorough immersion in Venice, and opportunities to visit nearby cities. 

Begin with a land tour in the glamorous city of Milan and move on to a breathtaking, small-ship cruise around Venice and the many splendored islands of its famous lagoon. Along the way, you’ll discover memorable experiences and mouth-watering Italian fare around every corner.
