Book a last minute getaway and take advantage of substantial savings on August and October 2015 departures on luxury hotel barge cruises in Europe, including onboard the deluxe 20-passenger La Bella Vita in Venice and the Po Valley.
True to her name, La Bella Vita cruises through landscapes that offer stunning glimpses of the beautiful life. Cruise along breath taking Venetian canals, past famous monuments and colourful eye-catching buildings. Explore the Doge's Palace one day then visit Chioggia's bustling fish market the next. The arts, architecture and history of this captivating region have been influenced by many cultures over the centuries – Roman, Etruscan, Istrian, Byzantine and Renaissance – allowing for many wondrous excursions. Cruise on the Canal of Orphans past lagoon islands with ancient monasteries and tiny churches, taste renowned vintages at the Bagnol Estate with its Renaissance gardens and visit 14th Century Estense Castle with its moat, drawbridges and marble balconies. The final destination of Mantua, home of poets and artists, with its neo-classical and baroque architecture, is a perfect ending to a magical cruising adventure.
Hotel barges offer charming, bespoke accommodation for a select group of 4 to 20 passengers cruising on the calm canals and rivers of Europe. These all-inclusive luxury hotel barge cruises include gourmet meals prepared by an experienced on-board chef, a selection of regional wines and cheeses with lunch and dinner and an "open bar". There are bicycles for guests' use and we include guided shore excursions by minibus on most days. You will be pampered by our cruise hosts, and on-board facilities such as a spa, Jacuzzi or exercise room are available for your use.
