The city of Treviso is in the north-eastern corner of Italy, just a short distance from Venice. It is quieter than its neighbour and makes it the ideal place to prepare ourselves for Venice. Not in the least because of this magnificent Hotel Boscolo Meg Consiglio

group dinner in the hotel

Hotel Boscolo

 - Day 11

Full day in VENICE  As you approach the city over the bridge from the Italian mainland, you leave behind terra firma and, with it, earthbound notions of how to see and experience a city. Venice is not solely the spill of churches and palazzi on either side of the Grand Canal, but rather a city of islands, 118 in all, some of which are little more than the weedy, humps you see in the Lagoon of Venice.
Group dinner

The videos shown on the bus partly pertain to the Holocaust sites we will visit shortly before we are visiting them. For the other part they contain information regarding the cities we are approaching. One video concerns the life of Miep Gies, Anne Frank's helper.
Pictures are merely a way to give an impression of what we will actually see on the trip. Hotels in particular always give pictures of their most beautiful rooms.
