Bellissima Northern Italy

2015 Prices From $5,990 for 11 Days - Tauck World Discovery

"Romancing the senses" is an apt description for the experiences showcased on this 11-day northern Italy vacation adventure... for the landscapes you’ll see and the lifestyles you’ll sample have resulted in many a love affair with the country's northern regions. It starts with fashion and art in Milan when you view da Vinci’s The Last Supper with a local guide. It continues during a private Tauck cruise across Lake Como to Bellagio and a boat ride to Isola Bella on Lake Maggiore. It captures your heart along the cobblestone streets of Verona, home to Romeo & Juliet... your taste buds at an agriturismo in the Franciacorta region and a cooking demo in Bologna (whose nickname is La Grassa, the Fat One)... and all the senses in Venice, with a Tauck Exclusive, after-hours guided visit to St. Mark's Basilica to view its treasures without the daytime crowds, and a soulful serenade on a gondola. Now that’s amore,  from pane to formaggio to vino...

The Tauck Difference

In Venice, we were taken on a gondola to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary, when we had a man playing an accordian and another man who was singing to us. It was a delight and we both enjoyed it a lot, for several reasons. It was the personal high spot in the trip as it was unexpected and delightful. Otherwise we would not have been on a gondola. Thanks!
