Let us take you to one of the most alluring, romantic cities in the world.
Venice is an exquisite city, one of both mystery and serenity. Its endless, meandering waterways have seen countless explorers and partygoers over the centuries, and as one of the most romantic places on earth, plenty of lovers too.
It’s an unlikely city, being supported by stilts – some hundreds of years old – but beautiful palaces and churches float on the water like mirages at an oasis. It beguiles first-time visitors to its charm, especially those who come to get lost in its labyrinthine streets and alleyways. Admire awe-inspiring architecture on every corner and see Renaissance art at its peak. And discover after your short flight to Venice, that its past as a luxury destination is still very much alive. Superb iconic hotels and gourmet restaurants sit on beautiful piazzas, perfect for a lavish holiday, while the beach resorts on Lido Island wait on you hand and foot. But more than that, Venice is for lovers, for romance and public displays of affection. So hold hands as you saunter through the streets, be serenaded by a singing gondolier and kiss under bridges – no one will blink an eye.
San Marco is the city’s unofficial centre, and a neighbourhood that most will associate as being archetypically Venetian. The number of iconic sights, including the stunning byzantine architecture of St Mark’s Basilica and the world-renowned La Fenice Theatre, will appease any sightseeing needs quickly. San Marco is definitely worth braving the high density of visitors, as its historic design and epic scenery is truly unforgettable. If you are here with a loved one, don’t forget the almost-compulsory sunset gondola ride, or stay at the romantic Gritti Palace overlooking the Grand Canal.
