Overview

Highlights

  • Visit Doges’ Palace and the poignant Bridge Of Sighs

Short Description

Giacomo Casanova, one of Venice’s most famous sons and one of the most famous lovers of all time, wrote “The Story of My Life,” where the reader learns all about his adventures in the 18th century. How about you? What would “The Story of Your Life” include? Fun and adventures? Or stress and frustration? Let Monograms handle your Venice vacation details, and we assure you the Venice portion of your story will be full of fun and enjoyment—not stress and hassles! In fact, on this Venice trip, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, and daily breakfast. Plus, we’ve arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there throughout your Venice trip to answer questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly.

Your Italy trip begins the moment you arrive in Venice, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will welcome you with a warm smile and a set of materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. We’ll take you to see St. Mark's Square and Basilica, dating back over 1,000 years. You’ll also visit Doges' Palace, a symbol of Venice built in 1340, and the Bridge of Sighs, built in the 1600s and offering prisoners their last view of Venice before their imprisonment. We have also arranged for you to watch a glassmaking demonstration with skilled glassblowers. Glassmaking has always been important in Venice's history, and you'll learn why during this demonstration.

You’ll also have time to explore on your own. Your Local Host will offer suggestions and help you arrange the activities you desire. Perhaps ride on a traditional gondola as you are serenaded through Venice’s canals. Maybe take a ghost walking tour or visit nearby Murano. You may just want to wander the city's maze of alleys as you shop for the perfect carnival mask or Murano glassware.

Did we mention we've included entrances to Marciana Library, one of the oldest Italian libraries built in the 16th century, and the Correr Museum and Archaeological Museums, which offer interesting insight into Venice’s art and history, a collection of Greek and Roman sculptures, and Italian and Egyptian remains? It's just another added feature included by Monograms! Between those entrances, the hotel we've booked, the sightseeing we've included, and the guides we've arranged, all you have to do is sit back and relax in this car-free, romantic city! Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host throughout your stay in Venice to assist you, and you've got the perfect chapter to "The Story of Your Life."

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Hands down this was the smoothest any vacation, local or abroad, has gone for me. Monograms did not miss a thing, from the nice hotels to the friendly local hosts. We would have missed so much had we booked a trip by ourselves. The local guides were also top notch, with a clear high reputation among their colleagues and in the city with which they live. With that, we felt like royalty with drivers picking us up in a Mercedes each time. The whole trip was professional, information and enjoyable. Monograms has my business moving forward.

We had a great time all around--it was excellent to have all of the arrangement made ahead of time and take some of the hassles out of travel.
We got a great deal--that was in part driven by super low air fare--which included a long layover--long enough to be a pain and screw up the first day, short enough that we couldn't go to town (Dublin) and make the best of it. Of course we could have paid more and gotten a direct flight but part of the appeal of the offer was the amazingly low cost. Hindsight, we'd have done the deal and paid the extra$.

We are very well traveled and have taken many group and private tours so can speak with confidence when we express our sincere satisfaction with our Monograms tour. The guides/drivers/accommodations were gracious, professional, knowledgeable and informative. Everything went very smoothly and our experience was wonderful. Highly recommend the Miramar Windsor Hotel in Rio, Belmond Cataratas in Iguassu and Hangaroa Eco Lodge in Easter Island-they were outstanding and restaurant food was excellent.
