Fit for Foodies!

Experience the Rich Culture of Northern Italy by River


June 22-29, 2014

As a culinary mecca, foodies from all over the world flock to Italy—and as the only river cruise line recognized by Zagat with the best dining in the industry, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is the perfect complement to wining and dining your way through the country! We're excited to announce Italy’s Po River & the Venice Lagoons, where travelers will explore Northern Italy's hidden gems and culinary delights on this eight day, seven night cruise aboard Uniworld’s River Countess.




You’ll spend a total of five days in Venice, soaking up the enchantment of the city—including an exclusive evening opening and lighting ceremony event at St. Mark’s Basilica; 


Next, you’ll journey to Padua, one of the oldest and most picturesque cities in Italy;


Then you’ll sail to visit Seravalle, where you’ll embark on an excursion to Ravenna, the City of Mosaics;


From Seravalle, you’ll meander along the Po River to Polesella, where you’ll spend a full day in Bologna and participate in a pasta making workshop;



Last, you’ll tour the famed city of Romeo and Juliet, Verona, before sailing back to Venice.
