Venice, 20 May – The Grand Tour of Italy has descended upon the magical city of Venice. This year Venice is also hosting the fifth and penultimate stage of the America’s Cup World Series yacht race from 12th-20th May. Our tour has taken in famous sights such as Piazza San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs and glass blowing on the island of Murano.
The group has also grabbed a glimpse of some of the enormous yachts competing in the race that are moored in the Lagoon. Racing is set out on two race courses; San Marco Race Course, located in the lagoon and the Lido Race Course, in the open sea, in front of San Nicolo` del Lido.
