Your itinerary

​You'll fly to Venice today. On arrival we'll transfer you to your lovely boutique hotel in Pasiano di Pordenone, on the border between the regions of Veneto and Friuli. This is the residence of the Countess Luppis, and you'll be personally greeted by the countess, who will welcome you into her home. 
After you've settled into your room, join your fellow travellers for a welcome drink before dinner. Each evening you will dine in the sumptuous surroundings of the hotel's restaurant, enjoying cuisine created using traditional cooking methods and fresh local produce. 

This morning we're going to discover the wonderful historic town of Treviso on a guided walking tour. At its heart is Piazza dei Signori, a great place to relax and take in the sights over coffee or maybe some lunch during free time.

Today you can relax at your hotel or join an optional trip to Padua. The city is known as the setting for Shakespeare's comedy The Taming of the Shrew and is thought to be the oldest in northern Italy. On our guided tour we'll see highlights including the 13th century Basilica of St Anthony, a place of pilgrimage for generations.

​​Today we're going to head to the extraordinary floating city of Venice for a guided tour. We'll see famous landmarks, starting in St Mark's Square, which is dominated by the Church of St Mark and is Venice's focal point. We'll also see the magnificent Doge's Palace, and cross the Rialto Bridge, which spans the Grand Canal, where we can watch gondolas glide beneath us. The city is a mesmerising sight at any time of the year but it is even more magical when it is illuminated by festive sparkling lights. 
We'll also see the city from the water as we board a boat and take in some of these incredible sights as we cruise the famous canals.

This morning, join our included excursion to Portogruaro, a small medieval town nestled in the eastern corner of Veneto. Connected by channels to the Venetian Lagoon, it boasts an historic centre reached via a trio of well-preserved city gates. Admire many palaces dating from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and marvel at the lean of its cathedral's bell tower, which gives Pisa a run for its money.
We'll return to the hotel this afternoon, giving you plenty of time to get ready for this evening's New Year gala dinner, which includes live music.

​After last night's New Year's Eve celebration, you can enjoy today at leisure. Take a late breakfast, or maybe you'll head to the spa for a pampering session. If you're feeling energetic you can spend some time in the gym or take a stroll amongst the hotel's beautiful grounds.

​After breakfast the Countess Luppis will bid us farewell as we transfer to Venice for our flight back to the UK.
