Eastern Mediterranean

Italian East Coast

The world renowned gem of the Italian East Coast is Venice. As much as it is iconic, and a great place to start or end a charter, there are numerous other spots of beauty along the coast on the Adriatic Sea. Mestre is one of many quaint boroughs that surround Venice that hosts equestrian events, food festivals, and fresh/artisan markets. Ravenna is the burial site of Dante Alighieri and his tomb is a major landmark. The cobbled streets are lined with museums built around ancient artifacts. Although known as Venice’s “ugly little sister,” Chioggia is a charming fishing village that represents “real Italy.” Don’t miss out on La Passeggiata which is an Italian institution. Finally, Parco San Bartolo is home to the highest sea cliffs on the Italian Adriatic. There are numerous steep paths that lead to the beaches, where one can relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty.
