Brimming with breathtaking sights, mouth-watering meals, and unique places to explore, Venice holidays and city breaks transport holidaymakers to a different world. Expect plenty of hideaway restaurants boasting stunning views of the canals, unique boutiques selling colourful Murano glass jewellery and plenty of ice-cream parlours to enjoy Italian treats at their best and quite a few remarkable cultural and historical sites.

Possibly the most romantic city in the world, this gem of Italy is perfect for city breaks for couples, but with its rich history, culture and scenic sights, this city charms all manner of holidaymakers. The relentless picturesque quality of Venice will keep visitors captivated throughout their stay, from the snaking canals and pretty bridges, to the grand squares and splendid churches – Venice is a truly special part of the world. Spanning over 100 tiny islands and surrounded by a sparkling blue lagoon that filters its way through to a labyrinth of city canals, there are plenty of places to explore while visiting the city.

City breaks to Venice are a popular choice regardless of the seasons - while many flock here during the summer months for its pleasantly warm weather, others are enchanted by the misty ambience that settles over city during the winter. Enjoy the atmosphere in St. Mark’s Square before wandering through the narrow winding streets to cosy bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city, or elegant 5-star hotels with views over canals amid some of the most romantic and iconic architecture Europe has to offer. With a booming café and restaurant culture, Venice city breaks are perfect for those who want to experience a lot but get away from it all and relax at the same time.
