For Canadian travellers wishing to experience the Renaissance treasures of Italy during spring when there are less crowds, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is offering free flights on select April 2014 “Splendors of Northern Italy, Venice, Florence & Rome” departures.

“Our Italy itinerary is truly a must for lovers of history, art, cuisine, wine, and — of course — Italy’s rich culture and spectacular scenery,” said Guy Young, president of Uniworld. “And now is the best time to go, with this very special ‘Fly Free’ offer as a special incentive and to say grazie to our guests.”

Uniworld’s 13-day Splendors of Northern Italy, Venice, Florence & Rome takes travellers to Venice, the water-bound city, where they will board their luxurious floating boutique hotel for seven nights. They will experience all the pleasures this magnificent city has to offer, including an exclusive evening opening and lighting ceremony at St. Mark’s Basilica — for Uniworld guests only. The itinerary also includes the Northern Italian cities of Padua, Ravenna, Bologna, Verona, and Ferrara. After embarking the ship in Venice, they will travel to Florence for two nights; and Rome, the Eternal City, for three nights. To take advantage of Uniworld’s “Fly Free” economy offer to Italy, travellers must book by Oct. 31.
