Be swept away by this unique Italian city
It doesn’t matter how often you’ve seen Venice in photographs and films, the city is even more incredible in the flesh. Our city breaks to Venice will guide you around its labyrinth of wonderful waterways, narrow alleyways, architectural masterpieces, and over and under countless bridges.
We’ve explored every nook and cranny of Venice, a city spread across 118 islands, navigated by its famous serene waterways and bridges. Beyond the undeniable romance of the place; art, literature and architecture are the three cornerstones of this unforgettable city. Examples of beautiful Moorish and Byzantine architecture are everywhere you turn.
We’ll show you the unsurpassed views from Campanile di San Marco and the singular architecture of Campo Santa Maria Formosa, and a slice of the famous Venetian zest for life with great food and wine experiences. You can almost feel the spirit of past residents Vivaldi and Casanova in the narrow network of streets, and of course, a gondola ride is an unmissable experience too.
And for the perfect contrast to the buzzing streets of Venice, try the quiet fishing village of Burano. It’s just a short ferry hop from the main attractions. You can wander its twisting, colourful streets and watch intricate lace-making in its traditional workshops, finishing with a drop of the local – and moreish – wine, made from Dorona, the rare Venetian grape.
