The romantic city of Venice deserves its reputation as one of the world’s must-see destinations, with its gondolas, canals and bridges providing a unique atmosphere. The old city is accessible by water taxi and contains a number of historic sites, including St Mark’s Square, Palazzo Ducale and Rialto Bridge, where you can admire the captivating architecture of this beautiful city. With narrow alleyways packed with eateries offering pizza, pasta and gelato, Venice is a foodie’s paradise, whilst the city also hosts a number of festivals in its lively arts scene. Further afield, the islands of Murano, Tocello and Burano are perfect for day-trips and offer a more tranquil setting from which to enjoy the Venice area’s aquatic lifestyle.
