Travel and Adventure is being held twice this month so that more people can enjoy the program. Choose which date/format is best for you and register early.
Rick Steves is your perfect travel partner, guiding you through his favorite European cities, villages, and off-the-beaten-path getaways.
Venice: City of Dreams
Venice, more than any other European city, has an endlessly seductive charm. For centuries, it was nicknamed La Serenissima, “The Most Serenely Beautiful One” — and for good reason. After sorting through the monuments of Venice’s powerful past, we’ll cruise the Grand Canal and be dazzled by masterpieces of the Venetian Renaissance. Along the way we’ll feast on Venetian treats, get a splash of modern art, and glide on a gondola through this city of elegant decay.
Venice and Its Lagoon
Join us as we trace the life of Venice, once Europe’s most powerful city, from its early beginnings to its superpower heyday to its hedonistic decline. We’ll start by cruising its lagoon, stopping in fiery Murano for glass, pastel Burano for lace, and murky Torcello for a sense of where Venice was born. Along with sampling the sumptuous art treasures and exploring its back-street wonders, we’ll luxuriate in a venerable café and savor fresh fish canalside with Venetian friends.
