Recently I was preparing for my fourth visit to Venice, Italy and the surrounding region of the Veneto. Always looking for new things to do while on vacation, I came upon the Il Burchiello river cruise along the Brenta River between Venice and Padua. This day cruise promised stops at three of the enchanting Venetian Villas along the river—all ones I had not yet managed to visit otherwise.
Reviews of the cruise seemed somewhat mixed, but after going over the details with my sweetie (and some very helpful and swift communication with the cruse operators via Facebook) I decided to book our tickets. I'm so glad we did as it ended up being a very unique and memorable experience for our trip. Here I will share some more details on our day trip as well as the villas we visited during our cruise.
