Explore Venice

One of Italy – and Europe’s – most beautiful cities, Venice is an understandably popular tourist destination. Start your day with a spot of people watching in Piazza San Marco (Saint Mark’s Square), then make your way to Basilica San Marco (Saint Mark’s Basilica) and neighbouring Doge’s Palace. While here, be sure to take the Secret Itineraries Tour, for a fascinating journey through parts of the Palace that most tourists never get to see. Art buffs will love Galleria dell'Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, while you can’t miss a stroll across gorgeous Rialto Bridge or an iconic gondola ride. If all that sightseeing leaves you hungry, refuel with some lovely Venetian cuisine, from polenta and risotto to cuttlefish cooked in its ink. If you choose self-catering Venice accommodation, you can also take advantage of the incredible food markets that dot the city. The best of these are near Rialto Bridge, with beautiful fresh produce that will not only save you money on dining out, but give you a true taste of local Venice life.

When to go to Venice

Venice is an incredible year round destination. October until March are the quietest months, so the best time for a Venice holiday if you’re keen to avoid tourist crowds. If you don’t mind jostling for space, however, you can’t go past a trip to Venice during Carnevale, the Biennale or the Venice International Film Festival.

Getting to and around Venice

Most tourists arrive in Venice via flights to Marco Polo or San Giuseppe airports. It is also possible (perhaps even preferable) to arrive via train to Stazione Santa Lucia station, particularly if coming from another Italian city. Once in Venice, you really only have two transport options – exploring on foot, or catching a vaporetto (water bus.)
