Venice with Tom Peck.
6-10th Dec (4 nights, 5 days)
There is no city in the world quite like 'La Serenissima'! This photographic tour will get the best from this unique and incomparable city. We will start early in the morning, avoiding the crowds, to capture the city's side streets, little canals, quaint bridges, gondolas and hidden piazzas. Lunch will be at a typical Venetian cafe, and this will be followed with more photography at some of the better known locations such as St. Mark's Square and the church of San Giorgio. In the evenings, we will capture the Grand Canal from some of the famous bridges such as the Rialto and the Accademia - a great opportunity, not only to make images of the sunset over one of the most exquisite cityscapes in the world, but also to practice long-exposure blurring techniques to record the light trails of the boats on the river. We will eat together in a local restaurant and then perhaps finish the day with a cocktail in the legendary Harry's Bar, home of the Bellini. We will also spend one day travelling out to the small island of Burano, known for its multi coloured houses reflected in the still waters of the canals.
Accommodation will be in a small hotel just off St. Mark's Square (Royal San Marco or equivalent) so that everything will be in easy walking distance. Flights will be to Marco Polo airport from e.g. Gatwick, Luton and Manchester
Price £995 (deposit £300), based on a shared twin room. For single occupation, there is a supplement of £200. Price includes B & B accommodation, but not other meals or snacks. Flights are not included.
