Wonderful Cities; GREAT ART - NOT A CRUISE, a BUS tour!

Sail Date: Oct 2017

Port of Embarkation, above, is incorrect. It was Milan, Italy, but this is not an available choice!

My wife and I chose this cruise because we wanted to see the magnificent art of Italy and we wanted to return to Venice before it is under water due to non-existent Global Warming.

We chose Uniworld because they are the only river boat company that "cruises" Northern Italy. EXCEPT THAT THEY DON'T! MOST of the travel on this trip was done by BUS. There was a SMALL attempt at cruising by giving us a tour of the Venice harbor. At one point, the boat had to move outside the Venice harbor but for safety reasons, passengers were NOT ALLOWED.
