MARVELLOUS ENLIGHTENING MAGICAL VENICE

a 'Culture vulture' holiday led by Tom Duncan an art historian who imparts his knowledge with vim, humour and obvious pleasure - both his and his listeners.

Rating for tour operator:

As above, Tom Duncan's company Ciceroni is run on oiled wheels - this was my 15th trip with Ciceroni, which speaks for itself. I am already booked on two more trips with Ciceroni this year. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great Insights into Venice

A visit to a private palazzo given by its owner, some unusual churches and smart art galleries for the connoisseur all made this trip rather special.

Rating for tour operator:

A well organized trip, a good hotel on the Grand Canal, one could relax in the knowledge that one was well cared for.

'Venice for Connoisseurs' was just brilliant.

We visited several places not usually open to the public, which was very interesting. One of the many highlights was a private visit to St. Mark's, something we'll never forget. The organisation was perfect, the hotel excellent.

Rating for tour operator:

Ciceroni is a tour company specialising in taking small groups to interesting places. We have been on many of their tours, which are well run and you always feel in safe hands.

We have travelled with Ciceroni on Art tours on many occasions over a number of years and have always found them of the highest quality.

Perfection.

Venice as it should be enjoyed-five days spent enjoying a varied and carefully chosen itinerary of events which flowed seamlessly, making history,art and architecture fun.

Rating for tour operator:

This holiday was exceptional-after only five days we came away feeling totally at home in Venice having enjoyed such a varied program. It was particularly special to experience the visits to Palazzos which were opened for us by special arrangement and to discuss with owners the difficulties of conservation and management. Ciceroni Travel seem to love organizing the holidays as much their clients enjoy experiencing the holidays. It is a privilege to be part of this group.

The Ultimate Ciceroni Experience

What made it extra special were such features as, having access to private palaces, the group floodlit visit to St Mark's, which was an experience never to be forgotten and the enjoyable stay at the elegant Hotel Palazzo Sant'Angelo.

Rating for tour operator:

Tom Duncan combines scholarly delivery which is laced with typical Irish charm and wit and he was able supported by James Hill for whom our slightest was his command!

Memorable

Cultural tour of Venice.

Cultural tour of Venice.

Rating for tour operator:

Ciceroni Travel provide tours to cultural centres in Europe and US. Travelling to Venice with two history of art experts is a real privilege especially as each person is equipped with headphones connected to the guides. Hotel was very well chosen to suit a variety of age groups with attention to the less agile as well. This particular trip centred on the private collections and less well known palazzi. Very highly recommended
