One of the most romantic cities in the world, a visit to this very special city is sure to enthrall you. With palaces of epic grandeur, enchanting alleyways linked by picturesque bridges and classic Venetian architecture lining the waterways; this city is knitted together by a network of canals, each one telling its own little love story.
Learn some of Venice’s fascinating history, from its shipping fortunes to the plague, or try the inventive Venetian cuisine, with tantalising traces of ancient spice routes.
From the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, you will come to the banks of the Fondamenta Nuove where you can see the marvellous islands of the lagoon. Murano, Torcello and Burano are enchanting, easily reachable islands. There are boats that will take you to the colourful houses of Burano, in the Murano workshops where glass is blown or to a splendid holiday farm on Sant'Erasmo, with its natural scenery and bicycle paths.
