Door to Door Service

We sail from Hull to Rotterdam return with P+O Ferries and stop in Germany both ways.

The Italian Venetian Riviera offers many vistas from the green hills of the inland valleys to historic hilltop villages and beautiful sandy beaches. Its mild climate makes it a favourite destination at any time of the year and Autumn is ideal, as the Summer heat has now gone.

We head to the hidden gem of Bassano del Grappa, home of the fiery Italian spirit known as ‘Grappa’. We enjoy a guided tour and tasting at the Nardini Grapperia, the oldest distillery in Italy. We travel to Valdobbiadene located on the famous Prosecco wine route, where we can sample some of the region’s famous sparkling wine. We visit the medieval city of Padova, home to Italy’s second-oldest university established in 1222. Here we can take a stroll around the historic streets and visit the Scrovegni Chapel. In the afternoon, we visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vicenza, known for its fine 16th;century architecture. Vicenza is also famous for its trade in precious metals and is also known as the ‘City of Gold’. To end your visit to Italy, we will make a journey to the ferry jetty of Punta Sabbioni, where we will catch the ACTV ferry (boats run every 30 minutes) for a 90-minute ride to the beautiful city of Venice. Stunning architecture, and a labyrinth of mysterious passageways, await in this alluring city built on a lagoon. Gaze in awe at the Grand Canal, reflecting the glories of Venetian architecture lining its banks, the Gothic Palazzo Ducale, Doge’s Palace and the Basilicas of San Marco and Santa Maria della Salute. We return by ferry to Punta Sabbioni
