  • Day 1 UK to Venice
  • You will fly to Venice today and join your river cruiser, MS Michelangelo early this evening. Settle into your cabin and then meet your travelling companions and the ship's crew over a welcome cocktail before dinner. Afterwards, you may wish to take a stroll into Venice, an extraordinary floating city of bridges, canals and spectacular architecture.
  • Day 2 Chioggia & Padua
  • Enjoy a leisurely breakfast as we cruise through the Venetian Lagoon and enter the River Po. Our first port of call is the fishing town of Chioggia. We'll arrive mid-morning and you're free to step ashore and explore at your own pace before returning to the ship for lunch. This afternoon, you can join our optional excursion to the old university town of Padua, which is teeming with fascinating history. We'll take a short walking tour and visit the magnificent Basilica of St Anthony before returning to the ship.
  • Day 3 CHRISTMAS EVE Murano & Burano
  • This morning, why not join an optional excursion to Murano and Burano - two of the most famous islands in the Venetian Lagoon. Murano is renowned for its colourful hand-blown glass and we'll watch a demonstration during our visit. Burano is a traditional town built around a canal network and is famed for its lace. You will find plenty of examples in the island's shops and there's free time to explore here before we return to the ship for lunch. This afternoon's optional excursion gives you a chance to discover two of Venice's most iconic sites – St Mark's Square and the wonderful Doge's Palace.
    Back on board we'll enjoy dinner and a special Christmas Eve celebration. Later, you can attend midnight mass at St Mark's Basilica if you wish, and then we'll round off the evening with a glass of mulled wine.

  • It's Christmas Day and you're free to relax and enjoy any surprises Father Christmas may have left for us. Christmas lunch with all the trimmings will be served on board and then you might want to head ashore and go for a stroll around Venice. What could be better than spending Christmas Day taking in famous sights such as the Grand Canal, the Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs.
