A holiday just isn't a holiday without an art-filled excursion.

Hotel Croce di Malta offers a range of enchanting excursions, combining untouched nature, artistic beauty and culture...a walk along the charming 'wine trail', visiting one of the area's most famous prosecco wineries, including a tasting session of wines and local products in VALDOBBIADENE, or a visit to the precious cathedral in AQUILEIA.

A romantic trip in a GONDOLA on Venice's Grand Canal or visiting some of this ancient city's most beautiful areas - like the CATHEDRAL, the DOGE'S PALACE or the JEWISH GHETTO - are also a must. A trip to Venice's FENICE theatre is also essential, as is a walk around the ARSENALE before returning home feeling culturally enriched.

And, of course, you mustn't forget to include a trip around the wonderful islands of BURANO and MURANO.
