Steeped in history, shrouded in mystery, the city of Venice floating on a lagoon has barely changed in 600 years. With a grandeur of astronomical proportions, this romantic city is one of the most iconic in the world, and rightly so. A visit to Venice will transport you back to the time of masked balls and secret love affairs, revelry and debauchery.

“I expected to have more time to explore the cities than i did. It felt like we were on the coach most of the time.”

“This was a great trip enjoyed by our group of ten friends. Cycling through the Italian countryside along bike paths and quiet roads combined exercise and sightseeing, with the comfort of having our luggage waiting in the destination venues every day. Navigation was an occasional challenge, but a new App with the route specifically laid out was great once we worked out how to use it best.”

Venice - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Venice Tour Highlights

  • The openness of the Basilica di San Marco and Saint Mark’s Square are a welcome reprieve from the tiny, winding alleyways that much of Venice consists of. The sheer size and grandeur is breathtaking.
  • The Gallerie dell’Accademia houses Venetian art from the 14th to 18th centuries.
  • Take a gondola ride along the winding canals and see as it should be seen - from the water.
  • Tour Venice’s Doge’s Palace, the home to all 120 past Doges.
  • Take a beach day away from the crowds on Lido island. You can even rent private cabanas.
  • See how the famous Venetian Murano glass is blown on Murano island.
  • Visit the markets of Venice that sell fresh produce daily.
  • Experience the centuries old tradition of Carnival and attend a masquerade ball.

Venice Travel Tips

  • The Venezia Unica Pass will save you money on attraction fees.
  • Avoid eating in a restaurant on Saint Mark’s Square, unless you’re prepared to pay.
  • Many small trattorias are located on side streets, barely visible from the main walkways. They’re often a little less expensive.
  • Venice is a maze, but that’s all part of the fun. Grab a map, start walking, and get lost as much as possible.
  • A trip to Venice during the Carnival is very expensive, but it’s a once in a lifetime experience.
  • Flooding is common, and if you holiday in Italy during a flooding period, be prepared by buy waterproof shoes and walk on gangplanks to avoid the flood water.
  • Summer time is jam-packed with tourists, while winter is liable to bad weather. Spring and autumn are perfect times for your Venice holiday.
