Where do you want to stay?


The city of canals sits in the middle of its own lagoon, at the ‘top’ of the Adriatic Sea. Venice’s world famous architecture and the chance to ride the ancient waterways in one of the signature gondolas or to tread in the footsteps of luminaries from history in St Mark's square has made the city a must on the itineraries of international travelers. As well as drawing in culture buffs, Venice is one of the preferred European destinations for a romantic break thanks to its unique ambience.

Key attractions
No trip to Venice is complete without a walk around St Mark's square. The square is the heart and soul of the city, and is surrounded by notable landmarks, including the fabulous Gothic Doge's Palace and the adjacent St Mark's Basilica. Among the plethora of other notable religious edifices, the San Giovanni e Paolo Basilica is a notable highlight. Venice was the world’s first pedestrian precinct and walking its meandering lanes without dodging cars is a real pleasure. The Vaporetto dell’Arte boat service runs between all of the major sights and museums on the Grand Canal.

Having fun
Entertainment in the evening ranges from sipping a gourmet coffee to taking in a concert at La Fenice. This grandiose hall offers a regular program of opera, concerts, and dance. Baroque composer Vivaldi hailed from Venice, and Chiesa San Vidal is the best known of the venues at which to enjoy one of his compositions. Café-bars at Piazza San Marco are invariably busy with pre-dinner patrons. The quintessential Venice dining experience is a meal on the canal bank beside the Rialto Bridge. Venice is not noted for its nightlife but the Devil's Forest, a themed pub is one of the few places to enjoy a late night here.

Shopping
Although Venice is not famed for its retail options, visitors will discover ample shops to entice them into spending money. The Frezzeria leads out of St Mark's square and winds its way to La Fenice. The street is lined with high-end stores selling Murano glassware and other unique souvenirs. There are designer boutiques on Frezzeria as well as on nearby streets. Rialto beside the Rialto Bridge is the most famous of the city’s markets and a delight to wander with its stalls laden with fresh produce and fish. A section of the market has a selection of bric-a-brac, cheap mementos, and carnival masks.

Nearby
Boat services link the historic central district of Venice to islands such as Burano and Murano in the Venice Lagoon. Burano boasts gaily painted houses and a lace-making museum, while glassmakers’ studios and the Giustinian Palace glass museum ensure Murano is a worthwhile visit. Lido is 10 minutes by vaporetto ferry and a relaxing spot with a public beach and a varied choice of venues for wining and dining. Mestre faces the mainland and is easily reached by bus from Piazzale Roma. Mestre’s Ferretto square offers a great choice of shops and restaurants with al fresco dining.
