Venice, city of water is one of the most romantic places to visit in the world, with accommodation ranging from cheap and cheerful hostels, to truly luxurious hotels.
When you visit the city you will discover sights that have changed little in the last 600 years, since Venice was reclaimed from lagoon waters.
Although part of the city is located on the mainland, most tourists head for the historic centre, spread across 118 islands, linked by canals and atmospheric bridges, such as the famous Bridge of Sighs, an enclosed bridge of white limestone. This beautiful bridge was built to link the Doge’s Palace to the New Prison.
Wherever your hotels are in Venice Italy, you’ll be close to its sights and the canals lined with beautiful old palaces. Be sure to spend time in St Mark’s Square, people watching over a coffee or al-fresco lunch, before visiting the Tower of St Mark’s and the Doge’s Palace.
Venice is full of wonderful museums for all the family, including the famous Glass Museum on the Island of Murano, the Museo of Fortuny and the Naval History Museum.
