Why Barge in Italy?

Barging in Italy showcases a country usually toured by land but best seen from the water. Discover the many cultures – Roman, Etruscan, Byzantine, and Renaissance – that have influenced the region over many centuries. As a guest on an Italian barge cruise, you can admire the architecture from eras of Italian history, sip wines from sun-drenched vineyards, and enjoy small slices of Italian life typically overlooked while traveling.
