  • Our hotel in Venice is located just a short distance from the Grand Canal and is easily accessible on foot or by waterbus/Vaporetto to all major sights.
  • Make sure you carry small change, as public bathrooms cost anywhere up to a €1.50 to use. All restaurants and cafes will have restrooms, but you will need to purchase something from their menu.
  • Due to fluctuating weather conditions, our sightseeing on day 11 is subject to change.
  • On day 22 the boat will be docked at either the mainland in Slano or Šipanska Luka, at the captain’s discretion.
