In 2013 Uniworld will be sailing in Italy! So many people have been asking when this would happen and the time has now been set! In April of 2013 the amazing newly-refurbished River Countess will sail on a choice of 8 day and 13 day programs. The food alone would be worth the trip, but of course Italy offers so much more. This is the historical seat of Western culture, the birthplace of the European Renaissance, and the home of some of the most exquisite art and architecture on earth. Discover the newest addition to Uniworld’s collection of extraordinary river cruise destinations.
There truly is no place on earth quite like Italy. From the palazzo-lined canals of Venice to the fertile olive groves of Tuscany, from the spectacular ruin of Rome’s grand Coliseum to the pilgrim-packed Vatican, Italy offers enough historical, cultural, and natural wonders to delight even the most experienced traveler. Uniworld is proud to present a banquet of these wonders—a veritable feast for the senses—on the new 13-day “Splendors of Italy” itinerary. You’ll get an insider’s look at all the “must see” sights of Venice, Florence, and Rome, including the Coliseum, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Uffizi Gallery. You’ll also have a chance to venture off the beaten path, visiting romantic enotecas and Tuscan wine estates. You'll visit such places as Ravenna, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site; enchanting Verona—the home of literature’s most famous lovers—Romeo and Juliet; and you'll be introduced to Italy’s distinctive culinary delights by being taught some of the tricks of the trade during a pasta-making workshop in Bologna, the culinary capital of northern Italy. And for those who may not have as much time, there is an 8-day, cruise-only “Venice & the Po River” itinerary.
