Reasons to visit Venice

Alluring architecture

Venice is a city bursting with incredible buildings dating from centuries ago. Your Italian itinerary should consist of a trip to St. Mark’s Basilica and Palazzo Grimani, both built in the 9th century.

Admire the abundance of domes that make up St. Mark’s Basilica and marvel at the 8,000 square metres of gleaming mosaics. The cathedral was built to house the body of St. Mark after Venetian traders trafficked it out of Egypt.

A little off the beaten track, Palazzo Grimani is sure to delight. It provides an extraordinary insight into 16th-century Venice.

Take to the canals

Hop aboard a gondola for one of the best ways to explore the floating city. The gondolas gliding up and down the Grand Canal and smaller waterways of Venice is one of the most iconic images in the world.

Travel the world-renowned canals for a romantic trip for two or just as a great way to see much of the city. The Grand Canal is a rambling two-mile stretch through the city, lined with waterfront eateries, magnificent buildings and quaint cafes. Remember to pack your camera for some fantastic photos of Venice from its waters.

Enjoy hearty Venetian cuisine

Italy is famous for its food, and Venice is no exception. Try its local cuisine and decadent desserts as you look out across its beautiful streets and waterways when dining al fresco.

The Venetians have a soft spot for seafood, a favourite being squid ink risotto or pasta. Ladled up with fresh fish and topped with spring onion, this is the true taste of Venice.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth then tuck into Venetian tiramisu. This dessert – made of sponge fingers, coffee and mascarpone cheese – is believed to originate from the city. Finish off with another Venetian favourite – an aromatic espresso coffee.
