The streets are waterways and there are no cars. Book flights to Venice and explore the countless canals in a traditional gondola. Glide past beautiful palazzos and enjoy the sight of Venice from the water. Eating a traditional Italian gelato on one of the picturesque squares is a must. The Galleria dell'Accademia features art by the great Venetian masters. And the perfect gift is, of course, one of the colourful Venetian carnival masks which you can buy all over the city.
Everyone who visits Venice sooner or later ends up at the monumental Piazza San Marco, where scores of pigeons wait to be fed and photographed. Some of the main attractions in Venice are located on this square. Have a look behind the imposing façade of the spectacular St. Mark's Basilica and visit the adjacent Doge’s Palace. St. Mark’s Campanile offers great views over the square and the city. Yet the true charm of Venice is found in the maze of narrow streets and hidden squares where you can wander endlessly. Venice is the ideal destination for a romantic city trip and the perfect starting point for a tour of Italy. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Venice now!
The Rialto Bridge crosses the Canal Grande, Venice's main waterway. This covered bridge comprises a number of shops and is located near a large market, the Campo della Pescheria. Fresh fish is on offer here in the mornings, and there are also stalls selling flowers, fruits and souvenirs. Don’t miss the Dorsoduro district, a neighbourhood full of palaces and great museums. The island of Murano is only a stone's throw away and a wonderful place to visit and learn about the famous art of Venetian glass making. Time truly flies in Venice!
