Your Destination —
In Venice, you will never be short of things to do and places to explore. With St Mark's Square and the Rialto nearby, you can happily start your Venetian experience here.
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.
Venice has an extraordinarily rich heritage, and you will marvel at the architecture alone, but there are also some interesting places to visit:
Ca'Rezzonico - Here you can get an idea; of what life in the 18th century near the Grand Canal was like.
The Peggy Guggenheim Museum - The museum has an eclectic collection of 20th-century artwork, from Picasso to Dali.
La Galleria dell 'Accademia - Home to the work of some of history's most revered artists, such as Titian, Giorgione, Bellini, Tintoretto and Veronese.
Santa Maria dei Miracoli church and the San Francesco del Deserto Monastery - The church was recently restored but was originally built between 1481-1489 by Pietro Lombardo. It is an exceptional example of Renaissance Venetian architecture. The gardens of the SanFrancesco del Deserto monastery offer a welcome break for the tired traveller. The quiet and peaceful surroundings are perfect for lunch or a romantic stroll.
Marciana Library - The great architect Palladio considered this magnificent building by Sansovino as the most beautiful in the world. Few tourists realise that you can see it. Inside you will find treasures from Greek and Latin literature and true masterpieces of poetry and philosophy.

Your Excursions —
You have the following excursions included in this offer.
This is famously the oldest gaming establishment in the world and was established in 1638 as the centre of entertainment, as well as of international notoriety.
The casino is a perfect example of a Renaissance style stately home - it is one of the most elegant buildings overlooking the Grand Canal.
The colourful island of Murano has been the centre of a specialist trade known as glass-blowing since the 13th-century. The importance of these artisans has been entrenched in Venice's very history and has helped form its long-established reputation as the manufacturer of exquisite glass works of art. One just has to say Venetian Glass and it conjures up images of delicately twisted vases and eye-catching colours.
During your excursion, you will get the opportunity to see first-hand the great care that these artisans put into their trade and watch them transform an indistinct lump into a graceful object.
Note: The excursion to Murano is available every day but needs to be reserved at the front desk of the hotel. The departure is from the hotel at 10:30am with a shuttle that will take the guests to Murano Island. Here, there is a visit of a glass factory that takes approximately 1.5 hours. After that, guests can decide to stay and visit other sites on the Murano Island independently - which would mean travelling back to Venice independently, with public transport.
