A quiet canal in Venice...

A Trip in Venice with Académie des Arts de Vivre

Venice, known as the Queen of the Adriatic, is today one of the world’s premiere tourist destinations. For centuries it was the capital of the Republic of Venice and a formidable financial and maritime power. Let the Académie des Arts de Vivre tailor your unique trip to this enchanting region of Italy.

Built on a series of interconnected islands in the center of the lagoon, Venice is one of the most romantic destinations imaginable. AAV is happy to tailor a custom luxury vacation to this ideal spot. Its canals and bridges, Piazzettas and palazzos will leave you in awe. No matter how often you have seen them in photos and films, the real thing is even more dreamlike!







Few places can lay claim to such a spectacular natural setting, untainted architectural heritage, or fabulously beautiful views from the Grand Canal. Venice’s museums are world class, and its 141 churches are galleries in themselves. Even the most seasoned visitors get lost in the city’s labyrinth network of islands, bridges, pedestrian alleys, and canals.

And therein lies the beauty of the destination: afternoons spent wandering from palace to piazza, exploring the small art museums, shopping the stalls that line the streets, and encountering a fascinating fusion of influences—Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Italian—around every corner.

AAV will customize an itinerary to your tastes and interests for your dream Venetian holiday!

Your expert local guide will introduce you to Saint Mark’s Basilica, Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s Square. Private luxury transfers, restaurant reservations and whatever else it takes to ensure a memorable vacation will also be taken care of.

AAV is truly the only cicerone for touring Venice!
