Venice

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.
 
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 
Between the end of January and mid-way through February each year, Venice is host to an annual Carnival celebrating its centuries of art, history and culture though a series of masquerade balls, music shows and theatre performances. This annual event of costumed street singing and dancing is an experience you won’t regret being involved in.

Venice in a Nutshell

After Dark Destinations
 
  • Riding gondolas across the canals is the epitome of romance and sailing past the city’s traditional architectures in the atmospheric Venetian dusk is a must for any couple. The city’s iconic landmarks get a new lease of life under the mystique of the moonlight – St. Mark’s Square is a gem of ambience, and Rialto Bridge is like something out of a fantasy film.
     
  • Feeling lucky? Casino Di Venezia is fantastic for a flutter if you fancy your odds. As well as bringing some good night-time action, the casino is worth seeing also for its age-old longevity; being in business since the 1630’s, this place has hosted international gamblers for centuries, and continues to be a Venetian hotspot. 
     
Soak Up The Culture 
 
  • Teatro La Fenice is a traditional opera house situated a few steps away from St. Mark’s Square, showcasing a range of Italian plays perfect for a classy night of authentic theatre in Venice. 
     
  • Venice Carnival, the annual street party between late January and Mid-February is crawling with culture to absorb. Expect masquerade balls in many local hotel resorts, costumed parties in local venues and on the streets, and the sound of traditional music echoing throughout the canals.
     
  • For people looking to feed their mind, the Guggenheim, Frotuny, Doge’s Palace and Punta Della Dogana museums are at your service. 
     
  • Chicchetti, a Venetian delicacy of light nibbles, is a keen feature in the local food around the city. Ideal for daytime snacking, and a tasty way to take a 15-minute break during your day, we highly recommend you make a pitstop at least once during your travels. Composed of small portions of meats, cheeses, breads and bruschetta’s, this light snack keeps you fuelled for your city adventures and stands as a mustn’t-miss dish. 
     
  • If you have a sweet tooth then you’ve got to have your fill of fritole, a sweet pastry fritter served as a seasonal desert during the annual Carnival. Battered with an assortment of ingredients and deep fried to the high-heavens, you just have to try this Venetian guilty pleasure.
