Each year, Venice, Italy comes alive with a number of famous festivals and to coincide with these special events, European Waterways has announced special offers for July and August for 6-night cruises aboard the 20-person luxury hotel barge La Bella Vita that include $5,000 off full boat charters and $1,000 off per cabin for the July 13th and August 31st departures.
As a result, European Waterways guests will be able to participate in one of these festivals, then enjoy a cruise across the Venetian Lagoon and up the Po Valley onboard La Bella Vita that includes tours of Chioggia, Ferrara, and the Renaissance gem of Mantua — all while being pampered by an attentive staff and served fine wines and regional Italian cuisine by the onboard master chef
Standard Rates for La Bella Vita start at $3,590 per person, and include all meals, wines, an open bar, numerous other daily escorted excursions, local transfers and admissions. Rates are based on double occupancy and offers cannot be combined.
Among the many festivals this summer is the Festa del Redentore near St. Mark’s Square, July 19 and July 20, where participants can walk across the Grand Canal on a floating bridge of boats for good luck, followed by a spectacular fireworks display over the lagoon.
There is also the Venice International Film Festival, an 11 day event that takes place along the sea-facing Lido Esplanade.
