Glide down the Grand Canal on Venice city breaks and visit the Accademia gallery of Renaissance art. If discovering a secret around every corner is your idea of a perfect city break, explore Castello's hidden backstreets, bridges and canals. Promenade along the Zattere waterfront on your Venice city break, then ease into the evening with a Venetian cocktail in San Marco.
Stimulate your appetite at a centuries-old wine bar on your city break, sampling Venice's tasty cicchetti bar snacks and strawberry-flavoured Fragolino wine. Find a traditional backstreet trattoria restaurant on a tucked-away square to dine on local seafood or pea risotto on Venice city breaks. Try lanes away from the train station-San Marco main drag in Cannaregio and San Polo, or lively Campo Santa Margherita square in Dorsoduro.
Splash out on rooms with views around San Marco or overlooking the Grand Canal on your special city break in Venice. To save money on your Venice city break you'll find smaller hotels with less commanding views in Cannaregio near the train station.
Sweep down the Grand Canal on a vaporetto ferry on your Venice city break and tour St Mark's Basilica's glittering mosaics and Byzantine treasures. See panoramic views from atop the basilica's Campanile bell tower, then get the low-down on Venice's Renaissance art at the Accademia gallery. Stroll along the Zattere quayside for sunset views of the magnificent San Giorgio Maggiore and Redentore churches before making your way to St Mark's Square for twilight cocktails.
