European Waterways has added a Venetian Lagoon island-hopping itinerary onboard La Bella Vita.

The Venetian Lagoon tour on the 20-passenger hotel barge includes islands such as Burano, famed for its lace, Murano, renowned for its glassware and the Lido, home to the Venice Film Festival.

It will also call at the town of Chioggia, best known for its 18th century Church of San Domenico, and its canals, which will be explored on traditional local boats.

Venetian Lagoon cruises start at £3,290 per person based on double occupancy. Whole-barge charters are available from £61,000.

“The islands within the lagoon are truly the hidden gems of Venice,” said European Waterways MD Derek Banks.

 “They are often less crowded, yet are equally steeped in the history, culture, art, and traditions of this sophisticated city.

“On our Venetian Lagoon cruise, guests don’t have to worry about making their own arrangements to visit each of them. Instead, they can just soak up the atmosphere as they cruise in comfort, sharing with fellow passengers the gastronomic meals prepared by an onboard master chef, paired with some of the finest regional wine.”
