  • December 23 - Trento

    This morning, our journey takes us to the attractive town of Trento. See the Piazza del Duomo – once used by the Romans as their forum – or Market Square, where a Baroque fountain of Neptune now stands in the middle. To get into the festive spirit and perhaps pick up some last minute gifts, visit the Christmas market in Piazza Fiera.

    This afternoon, why not join our optional ‘Taste of Italy’ excursion? We make our way to a cantina where the method of producing wine will be explained and, of course, you will be able to sample some of their famous produce.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Christmas Eve - Verona

    Join our included excursion to the second largest city in the Veneto region, Verona. This beautiful Roman city is situated alongside the River Adige. To introduce you to the city’s array of spectacular sights, why not join our optional guided walking tour? The many historic buildings, the mighty Roman Arena famous for its summer opera performances, and Juliet’s balcony make it a lovely place to explore on foot, and our local guide's informative commentary will reveal the history of this magnificent city.

    You will also have time to browse the shops or take a coffee break in one of the many cafés in Piazza Bra, overlooking the Arena.

    This afternoon, we return to Riva for free time before a gala dinner, followed by live music.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Christmas Day - Riva del Garda

    Merry Christmas – relax and enjoy! Today’s Christmas festivities include a turkey lunch at the hotel and the chance to take to the water on an idyllic optional boat trip.

    Meals - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Boxing Day - Venice

    Today, enjoy a wonderful optional excursion to the unique city of Venice, the largest city in the Veneto area. This city mixes Byzantine and Renaissance architecture throughout the 118 islands; the magnificent buildings – surrounded by bridges and canals – are a sign of the city’s former wealth. There are many spectacular sights to see, including the Bridge of Sighs, St. Mark’s Square and the Doge's Palace.

    During your visit to Venice, don’t forget to try a gondola ride. The official price is €80 per gondola for a 50 minute ride, but this can vary depending on the gondolier, the time of day, and whether singing is required. Be prepared to barter a little!

    To make the most of your visit to this wonderful city, we recommend you join our optional lagoon cruise around part of the Venetian Lagoon.

    We head to our overnight hotel in northern France or Belgium.
