    Drive by coach from Verona to Venice on the Autostrada Serenissima, a 150km jaunt that will pass in an arresting blur of Italian countryside and cityscapes.

    Park on the island of Tronchetto and enjoy a beautiful boat ride to Saint Mark’s Square, the main piazza in Venice, popularly known as “the drawing room of Europe.”

    The 118 islands that compose Venice are slivered by 150 canals and connected by some 400 bridges. The city’s iconic black gondolas glide through the canals, piloted by master oarsmen who carry themselves with the composure of centuries.
