Stunning Venetian Riviera holidays  2021

Nestled on Italy’s northeast shores, the Venetian Riviera abounds with beaches and lagoons. Away from the scenic coastline, holidays in the Venetian Riviera offer quaint villages, historic architecture and outstanding fare.

There’s little doubt that holidays in the Venetian Riviera are a treat for beach bums, history buffs and culture vultures. Aside from the bustling city of Venice with its numerous attractions, the coastal destination comes peppered with scenic islands and charming towns. The region’s great food and wine complete the perfect holiday picture.

Vaporetto tours of the Venetian Riviera

Much cheaper than gondola rides and just as much fun, vaporettos are the area’s public water-buses. Plying the maze of canals, the boats transport commuters between Venice and the nearby islands. They are also one of the best ways to explore the area. For the best views, sit at the front or back of the boat.

Top 5 things to do in the Venetian Riviera

Looking for picturesque harbours, stunning coastline vistas and historic gems? You'll find them on holidays in the Venetian Riviera.

  • Housed in the 14th-century Scuola della Carita, Gallerie dell’Accademia dates back to 1750. The art gallery showcases work by such big names as Bosch, Bellini and Titian.
  • Hop onboard a vaporetto and make your way to Murano, an island famous for its glass makers. According to a popular story, the glass workers were sent to the island in the 13th century to reduce the risk of fires in Venice.
  • Have your photo taken outside Casa Bepi in Burano. Decorated with geometric shapes and bright colours, this is by far the most striking dwelling on the island.
  • For sweeping views of the surrounding area hop on the Wheel of Venice in Joselo. The giant Ferris wheel features air-conditioned cabins to keep you comfortable during summer holidays.
  • Be amused by the leaning tower of the church of San Martino in Burano. Built in the 17th-century, the 53-meter structure is best viewed from Terranova's marble bridge.
Historic highlights of the Venetian Riviera

Historic highlights of the Venetian Riviera

Steeped in history, the Venetian coast offers plenty of time-honoured architectural gems.

  • The Italo-Byzantine-style St. Mark’s Basilica is one of Venice’s most famous landmarks. The highlight of the opulent cathedral is the Pala d'Oro, a 12th-century altarpiece encrusted with 2,000 gems, including pearls and sapphires.
  • Visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta in Torcello, one of the first islands to be settled in the area. Don’t miss the stone chair known as Attila’s Throne in the basilica’s courtyard.
  • For an insight into how Venice protected itself from invaders, visit the Batteria Vettor Pisani in Cavallino-Treporti. One of the three batteries in the area, the fortifications contain restored rooms and memorabilia.
  • Admire historic paintings of Venice at the Gallerie dell'Accademia. The gallery’s collections date from the 13th to the 17th century, and include works by such famous names as Bellini, Bosch and Canaletto.
  • Discover the exquisite Palazzo Ducale, or the Doge’s Palace, which used to serve as the residence of the rulers of Venice. The palace’s ornate chambers stand in stark contrast to the adjoining prison, which can be reached by crossing the Bridge of Sighs.
