Day 1 - Welcome to Italy!

Guests are met at the designated meeting point in Venice on Sunday and transferred to La Bella Vita, moored in Porto Catena in Mantua. A Prosecco Welcome gives you a chance to meet the crew followed by the visit to the 14th century Ducal Palace, set in 15 gardens and courtyards, a museum, basilica, and theatre. The palace has intricate frescoes, a Gallery of Mirrors and an exquisite Rivers Room and houses an impressive 12,000 paintings and sculptures. Dinner on board.

Day 2 - Governolo

After breakfast, our local guide will take us to explore Mantua city center. Those opera lovers amongst you will, of course, be familiar with the story of the Duke of Mantua from Rigoletto. The Palazzi, fine architecture and squares reflect the wealth of the Dukes of Gonzaga Family. The town is also famous as the birthplace of Virgil, and of artists Mantegna and Donatello. We re-join the boat for lunch and a cruise to Governolo before leaving for the beautiful medieval town of Soave, famous for its dry, still wines. What this tasting will show is that the Garganega grape, often with some help from a bit of Chardonnay or some new French oak, can make profound white wines packed full of flavor and interest. Dinner on board.
