Are you a photography and travel enthusiast? If yes, then you have to go on the Gems of Northern Italy itinerary with UNIWORLD departing from Venice on 18 June 2017. This is part of the Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection and the photography workshops on this itinerary are complimentary with the cruise fare from US$3,149 per person based on twin sharing and excluding airfare. You will get photo assignments for each day of the cruise.
Travel Photographer Mark Edward Harris will be hosting the workshop. You get to learn how to capture the essence of a particular place or moment. He is known for his award-winning photographs that have appeared in Conde Nast Traveler, Vanity Fair and LIFE among others. Attend his lectures during the journey on how to capture landscapes, and how to create travel photo essays that tell a visual story.
Gems of Northern Italy is an eight-day journey. It starts and ends in Venice. The River Countess is an intimate ship for only 130 passengers. From the ship’s sun deck, you can admire 360-degree views of Venice’s breath-taking scenery. The journey will take you to a historic wine estate in Valpolicella where you can enjoy wine pairings with a multi-course lunch. The ship will visit medieval Padua, once home to Galileo and Copernicus; ‘bountiful’ Bologna; and UNESCO-designated Ferrara. Besides walking tours, you will get to have a hands-on pasta-making experience in Bologna. In Chioggia, learn how local fisherman harvest mussels or simply visit the local market and enjoy a fresh seafood lunch.
