Review of La Bella Vita barge

La Bella Vita barge ship was built in 1960 and launched as sand (cargo) barge under the name "Mery". The vessel hauled bulk cargo along the rivers and canals of Po River Delta in Italy for 50 years. In 2010, it was acquired by the European Waterways travel company, refitted and transformed into a luxury hotel barge.La Bella Vita barge cruise ship

Louvre doors open onto the outside to give a perfect view of the passing Po River scenery along the itinerary route. Above, there is a sun deck with comfortable loungers to relax.
