Highlights / General details
The tour starts with the visit of the beautiful city of Padua located in the northeast of Italy. Full of historical churches and medieval monuments, it's famous for the mystical Basilica of St. Anthony. The tour then continues with the romantic cruise among Venetian villas of the Brenta Riviera. Padua is the first stop on this tour. Here you will have the opportunity to visit the mystical Basilica of St. Anthony which contains relics, chalices, gifts, and documents relating to his life. The four-cloistered Basilica contains many precious adornments and decorations, and has an incredible aura of faith and votive mysticism – an extremely interesting place to visit. Here, along with thousands of pilgrims, you can inscribe your own prayer of intercession to St. Anthony and place it on his tomb. There is time for a stroll into the historical center of Padua where you can admire many medieval monuments. Our arrival at Oriago around 11:45am gives us time for an optional lunch (own expense) before commencing your romantic cruise among the Venetian villas of the Brenta Riviera. The programs offer navigation from Oriago to Venice (Oriago, Malcontenta, Fusina, Venice) plus a guided tour inside some of the Venetian Villas, the famous richly-frescoed summer dwellings of the Venetian aristocrats of the 1700’s. Arrival in Venice at approximately 6:15pm. Enjoy your day!
