City breaks & Short breaks in Venice
Venice has been a city of lovers for centuries, attracting people with its watery nature and it independence from the countries around it. As a republic during the Renaissance it was a huge trading hub and a multicultural city that thrived on its diversity. It has been immortalised by Shakespeare and is frequently the location of films. Now tourists come for city breaks to see the Piazza San Marco, St. Mark’s Basilica and to walk along the Gran Canal. The city is known for its glassblowing and it is easy to pick up unique pieces in its shops, sometimes even watching artists make pieces. You can have coffee at Caffe Florian and then shop for cameos, consider the pizza margaritas and finish the night with a romantic gondola ride down the canals of the city. City breaks in Venice are never dull.
Staying in the City
Among the canals are fantastic hostels, hotels and private accommodations. The most famous hotel for historic reasons is the Danieli Hotel but unless you are looking to spend a large portion of your travel budget on your lodging, you probably are looking to stay elsewhere. Rather than stay with a hostel or hotel which can be rather impersonal, it might be worth your time to look into private accommodation.
