Destinations / City Breaks / Venice
The city of Venice is simply stunning and completely unique. Founded more than 1,500 years ago on 117 different islands. It is a city of immense beauty.
The maze of tiny side streets and pedestrianised laneways make for a shopping and foodie heaven and once you’re staying in the city, you get a real feel for the place in the evening, once all the “day tourists” have gone home. It is best experienced on foot and offers a wealth of historic monuments, magical piazzas and some incredible museums.
You can see how Venice has inspired artists, writers and poets the world over. It is a city preserved in time where all buildings are supported on slender oak and pine piles (posts) which are driven deep into the ground to create a solid foundation.
Venice is without doubt one of the most beautiful and popular cities in the world, and is always admired by the many tourists that visit throughout the year.
