Astonishingly presented and inherently sophisticated, Venice champions its title as the city of romance with its abundance of culture, class, and classic cuisines. Nestled in the north-east of Italy scattered over more than 100 small islands separated by intersecting lagoons and canals, this city is commutable to and from the body of Italy as well as internationally with impeccable ease, in-spite of its location just off the mainland.
With Venice being the rather small capital of Italy’s Veneto region, you’ll be dumb-struck by how quickly you can be drinking fine wines and cocktails from when you leave your hotel’s private docks. Transit across the sestieris of Venice is simple, but with a backdrop as serene as this cityscape you’ll most likely never want to leave the lagoons due to their overwhelming beauty. Enjoy short travel distances, hot summers and cool winters, phenomenal settings and a wealth of historical culture.
Sail the city by gondola traversing the beautiful lagoons meandering around incredible landmarks like St. Mark’s Square and Basilica, Doge’s Palace, Rialto Bridge and more. With such a rich history, the city oozes with renaissance art, jaw-dropping architecture and traditional Italian cuisine, making for the ultimate luxury holiday destination for city escapists who want a slice of culture with their holiday.
Wine and dine your other half in the upmost style in beautiful gardens, intricate interiors, or perhaps even on the rooftop terraces of certain resorts. The glorious vistas and ambience is enough to send some serious butterflies fluttering, creating the perfect romantic Euro-getaway.
Not just for couples and culture-vultures mind, Venice is also a top spot for families too, as the city offers plentiful recreational and educational activities for kids, from plays and museums to art workshops. Most hotel resorts in and around the city also make activity provisions for children too, making it easy for all the family to enjoy such a vibrant Italian city.
