One of the world’s most romantic and storied destinations, Venice is a city teeming with culture. From beautiful beaches to secluded lagoons, vibrant carnivals to secluded wine bars, the entertainment options are limitless.
No visit is complete without a vaporetto tour along the famous Grand Canal to all the major islands—from the glass factories of Murano to the golden beaches and green golf courses of Lido.
Gastronomes will delight in Rialto’s Market, the source of fresh seafood and produce used in Venice’s best restaurants. Stop by one of the many bacari (wine bars) and sample traditional appetizers made with local ingredients. Children will especially love sampling Venetian-style pizza and multicoloured gelato.
Explore Venice’s rich history with a tour of the Doge’s Palace and the nearby Piombi prison where Casanova was imprisoned in 1755. Art enthusiasts will appreciate the Accademia, Punta della Dogana, and Peggy Guggenheim galleries.
If you’d like to venture outside of Venice, visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites in the nearby towns of Treviso, Padova, Vicenza and Verona.
