Welcome to Venice

Explore Venice

Lose yourself in the city’s maze of water canals and majestic buildings. Unique and romantic, Venice is a living artwork. Intriguingly, Venice was originally chosen as a good place for a settlement because those living there were trying to escape a barbaric invasion.

About Venice

Walking around the city is a fascinating experience, especially armed with the knowledge that it was built directly on top of a marshy lagoon, hundreds of years ago, using mainly wooden planks and stakes driven into the mud.

  • Venice sits on an archipelago of 118 islands.
  • 50,000 tourists visit the city every day.

Where to stay

Cannaregio is one of Venice’s prettiest and most authentic neighbourhoods, and it is here where you will find most of Venice’s actual residents. Cannaregio is a quiet area, great if you are looking to save some money on your accommodation. San Marco hosts many of Venice’s tourist sites which means that, while beautiful, it’s also now one of the most crowded and expensive neighbourhoods. Accommodation here is plentiful but a little more expensive - our apartments have beautiful views over St. Mark’s Square and the Basilica. You will find a lot of restaurants and bars in this area, serving great food and local beverages. If you want the best of both worlds, then Dorsoduro has apartments and accommodation to suit all budgets and, along with many beautiful sites to see during the day, by night it hosts a buzzing nightlife scene.

Things to Do

Venice has 117 canals and an impressive 400 bridges, three of which have been around since the city’s humble beginnings in the mid-400s. Just taking a stroll down the alleyways will give you a good feel for the city. Start your Venice adventure at the peaceful Burano Island, which has impressive architecture and houses painted in a patchwork of different colours. St Mark’s Square, Venice’s most impressive and beautiful plaza, is a must see. Enjoy a coffee at one of the plaza’s many cafes, and soak up the sea views. St Mark's Basilica, also located in the square, is an incredible feat of architecture. There are three museums located in the building - take the opportunity to go up to the roof for the most impressive views. Next door to St Mark’s Basilica is the Doge’s Palace, a beautiful gothic palace originating from the 1300’s and filled with artwork.

Eating and drinking

There are many great places to eat in Venice and, despite the high number of Italian pizza and pasta restaurants throughout the city, Venice’s speciality is something different. Venetian cuisine varies significantly from other cuisines in Northern Italy and is based around polenta, grilled meat, chopped liver, bean soup and salsa verde. You will find some excellent local restaurants with beautiful menus in the city. La Zucca is a local restaurant located in Santa Croce, serving local specialities such as Baccala’ Mantecato and Sarde in Saor and is reasonably inexpensive. If you would like something a little more up-market then try Osteria di Santa Marina located in Santa Marina, which offers a variety of cuisines accompanied by an excellent wine list. It is a little more expensive but the excellent food and service certainly makes up for it. If you are looking for a more family friendly restaurant, then head along to Al Nono Risorto.

Getting Around

Venice Marco Polo Airport is located on Italy’s mainland. All major airlines fly to the airport and it is located 7km from the city. You can choose to get to Venice from the airport either by land or sea. There is a train that runs from the airport to the city and the boat service Airport Link also connects the airport with Venice, or if you prefer, private water taxis are available. A cheaper way to reach the city is to take a bus. Buses run every quarter of an hour and take 22 minutes to reach the city. Venice itself is small enough to walk around on foot and you can go from one end of the city to the other in under an hour - no matter which part of the city you are staying in. If you would like to quickly get around the city then waterbuses (vaporetti) are the best option. Tickets are available from newsagents and tobacconists.
