A value-driven barge, La Bella Vita uniquely reveals Italy’s charms from the water.
Along with an introduction to Italian culture and cuisine, La Bella Vita offers a relaxed and comfortable cruise, making it the perfect choice for casual travelers looking for a barge outside of France. The active itinerary includes include a walking tour of the Castello district (where ‘real’ Venetians live), a visit to the Naval Museum, and a tour of the glass-producing island of Murano. Cuisine touches on an array of local specialties: pastas, cheeses, fish, and desserts, while wine pairings highlight both established and emerging Italian vineyards. An exclusive “Opera Evening” features an onboard performance of arias composed by Rossini, Puccini, and Verdi furthering the intimate Italian immersion. Queen and twin bedded cabins. The services of the cruise begin and end in Venice. Note that she cruises on a petite river as opposed to a manmade canal so biking opportunities as not as plentiful compared to canal cruising.
