As one of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice enchants at every turn. From the Grand Canal to mysterious alleyways and majestic palaces, welcome to a real life fairy tale.

Holidays in Venice promise to capture your imagination in a way that’s unique to the historic floating city. It’s built across more than 100 islands in the Venetian lagoon. The fabled canals host everyday life, but the backdrops are pure fantasy. Lose yourself in the maze of narrow streets and admire architectural gems. Most of all, prepare for the jaw-dropping beauty that’s inspired poets and artists for centuries.

History and Culture in Venice

The dazzling Piazza San Marco offers a tantalising taste of the historical and cultural treats to enjoy on Venice holidays. More than 100 palaces line the Grand Canal and as many churches hide in the narrow backstreets. Discover Murano glass, Burano lace and spectacular Venetian masks. All four seasons dress the city in a different kind of magic, from summer sun to wisteria in spring and the evocative mists of winter.

Top 5 things to do in Venice

Top 5 things to do in Venice

Museum-hop, island-hop or simply hop into a restaurant and take it all in. From city breaks to family holidays and dreamy honeymoons, holidays in Venice offer something for everyone.

  • The Dorsoduro district gives you a glimpse at the real Venice among fantastic attractions. Visit the Gallerie dell’Accademia and people-watch in the vibrant Campo Santa Margherita.
  • First built in 1792, the Teatro La Fenice is the city’s most prestigious theatre. Fittingly, it’s adorned in dazzling red and gold. Catch a show during opera season or take a guided tour.
  • Stroll around the dynamic neighbourhood of Cannaregio, day or night. Fuel up at traditional osterias, then explore the Jewish Ghetto, the Church of Madonna dell’Orto and the Ponte delle Guglie.
  • The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is housed in Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal. Discover works from around 200 artists, including Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.
  • Include San Giorgio Maggiore on your island-hopping itinerary. It’s home to the brilliant, marble Basilica of the same name. Climb to the top of the bell tower for sweeping Venetian views.

Ready to tick off your bucket list of famous landmarks? You’ll find more than one or two in Venice.

  • The most significant waterway in Venice, Canal Grande, is a breathtaking hive of activity flanked by glorious Venetian architecture. Discover some of the city’s most famous landmarks along the Grand Canal, including the Rialto Bridge.
  • Piazza San Marco is nothing less than a show-stopper, so get your camera ready. Apparently, Napoleon called the famous square the ‘drawing room of Europe’. Shops, cafes and iconic buildings add to the splendour.
  • A Gothic masterpiece, the Doge’s Palace overlooks both the Grand Canal and Piazza San Marco. It was the historic seat of power for the Venetian Republic for more than 700 years.
  • Take an elevator ride to the highest point in Venice, atop the Campanile di San Marco. The bell tower is a symbol of the Venetian landscape and offers incredible views across the lagoon.
  • Founded in the 9th century, Basilica di San Marco is a spectacular blend of marble pillars, grand domes and stonework arches. The stunning interior houses sumptuous gold mosaics.
