Up and Down the Bridges of 2024: An Unforgettable Experience in Magical Venice

Venice, the city of waters, bridges and magic that has captured the hearts of travellers from all over the world for centuries.

An unparalleled experience, which makes a stay in Venice during this period an unrepeatable opportunity. 

This year Leo, the event’s mascot, dresses up as Marco Polo and reads Il Milione, to honor the 700th anniversary of his death.
