ABOVE: La Bella Vita on the Riva di San Biagio in Venice.
In May, we took a six-night cruise from Venice to Mantua aboard La Bella Vita, a hotel barge of European Waterways. The cruise took us through the Venetian Lagoon and up the Po Delta via the Po River's network of tributaries and canals, with stops in cities such as Chioggia, Ferrara, and Mantova (Mantua).
