Vivacious Venice! ★★★★
Venice has a remarkable, unparalleled history; a romantic city famed for its basilicas, palaces, grand squares and enchanting waterways. Imagine building a city of ornate palaces on a lagoon – and that was only the start. You will arrive in Venice full of expectations, the majority will be well founded. All the pictures you’ve seen of the city have, quite simply, recorded the truth!
Drift by the beautiful sights of the city on a gondola ride and enjoy a serenade too; admire the romance of the city as your flotilla navigates the Grand Canal and quaint waterways. Venice’s cultural heritage is a source of endless fascination, for this is a landscape so full of things to do that you can’t walk for a minute without coming across something that’s worth a stop.
The heart of Venice lies in the San Marco neighbourhood, which is home to St Mark's Square, the perfect place to sit back and admire the view with a coffee. This famous piazza is fringed with extraordinary and iconic buildings such as Doge’s Palace, St Mark’s Basilica, and the clock tower Torre dell’Drologio.
The waterfront promenade, Riva degli Schiavoni is just a wander away from St Mark's Square where you will find an array of charming bars & restaurants. When passing over the spectacular Rialto Bridge you cross into the San Polo area which is one of the oldest parts of Venice. Catch a popular glassblowing demonstration on Murano Island, where glass has been produced since the late 13th Century. Foodies and shoppers will enjoy a trip to the historic, Rialto Market where the locals shop for supplies. The market is known for its seafood, with much of it having been caught in the lagoon that morning. Whether you're in the market for a memento, some enviable glassware or just want to see the local artisans at work, hit the atmospheric backstreets of Venice for glittering inspiration.
