Ah, it's get-away day today. For those on the group flight, a private water taxi waits to take you on a direct sail to the Venice Marco Polo Airport. From the airport dock it's a short walk to the terminal to catch your flight. If you otherwise have a flight out today and the timing works right, you can catch a ride on the same taxi shuttle. Your tour leaders will be heading to the airport with you, to ensure you get checked in satisfactorily.
For those who are staying on for some extra days ... if you are staying at the same hotel, check with the desk to see if you can remain in your same room or if perhaps they need to move you. And if you are headed for a different hotel, be sure to observe the check-out time.
Our group flight for the Italian Campaign tour is typically arranged through Air Canada. It allows us to fly into Rome, and out from Venice, with the same airline. Connections within Canada are also easier, and form part of a single ticket so that you are protected from scheduling hiccups.
To close out this abbreviated blog, here are a random selection of photos from past tours, showing some of the places and moments that will likely be part of your tour in 2021 ... fingers crossed for a vaccine soon. : ) See the captions below. Hopefully we will see you in some of these group shots very soon.
We hope this has given you perhaps just a little feel for what it will be like next fall. We are truly hopeful that leisure travel might return by next September and October and you can see the wonderful sights with your own eyes. So many great views and vistas await!
