Venice Sidetrips

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

Pulling on hip boots, we settle into the muck of Venice, then take a speedboat tour of the lagoon. On the mainland, we head for Padua to tour a once-illegal anatomy theater and track the restoration of Giotto's Scrovegni Chapel. In Vicenza, we admire elegant Palladian- style streets and villas. In Verona, we climb the Roman colosseum, jostle with tourists to rub the brass breast of Juliet, and taste- test grappa before riding the train to Ravenna for its dazzling 1500-year-old mosaics.
