VENICE & SPRINGTIME ITALY

4 Star Hotel at resort

Italy is a favourite holiday spot for those of us who dream of Mediterranean climate, sparkling waters and lush greenery with a lemon grove scent. Majestic landscapes, remarkable history and the canal city of Venice lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces transform a holiday to the Veneto region into a journey of relaxation and discovery.

The four star Hotel Le Soleil, Lido di Jesolo is a modern boutique style hotel situated on its own attractive beach and offers a perfect base for a visit to Venice whilst being in a relaxing and peaceful location. Rooms are well equipped with balcony, air-con, TV, hairdryer and telephone and leisure facilities include pool and spa.

Itinerary

Thursday Departing Cornwall early morning we travel to Dover for our ferry crossing to Calais and then onwards to our overnight hotel the Altia, Lille.

Friday After breakfast we continue our journey through Belgium and into Germany to The Mercure Hotel Stuttgart for dinner, bed & breakfast.

Saturday Our journey today takes us through Austria, and into Italy where we arrive at our coastal hotel with a drink and then time to settle in before dinner.

Sunday A welcome day to relax, enjoy the Lido di Jesolo and its beautiful Dolomite sands or perhaps take advantage of the hotel facilities. The town of Jesolo is just a couple of miles away for those who want to explore further afield.

Monday Today we take the ferry boat from Punta Sabbioni to the beautiful city of Venice. Stunning architecture and a labyrinth of mysterious passageways await us in the alluring city built on a lagoon. The Gothic Pallazzo, Doges Palace and gondola rides are just a few things that must be seen. We return by ferry boat again later in the afternoon.

Tuesday This morning we visit the Medieval city of Padova, Italys second oldest university city and a historic gem that is home to the Scrovegni Chapel with its priceless Giotti frescos. Later we move on to the UNESCO world heritage site of Vicenza ‘the city of gold’ as it has been labelled due to its trade in precious metals.

Wednesday A morning visit to the attractive town of Treviso with its meandering waterways, tranquil atmosphere and abundance of Italian charm. Fragments of the painted frescoes which once decorated Treviso’s houses are still in evidence in places and the town is circled by a town wall and waterways. We return to Lido di Jesolo in the afternoon.

Thursday Sadly it’s time to say goodbye to our hotel and begin our journey home, we have an overnight stay at the Mercure Stuttgart.

Friday Our journey takes us back into France for another stay at the excellent Altia Hotel.

Saturday We complete our journey home by travelling to Calais for the ferry to Dover and then back to Cornwall arriving home late in the evening.
