Lying at the top of the Adriatic Sea, the Venice is a truly unique city characterised by the lagoon on which it appears to float.
The best way to explore the ‘Queen of the Adriatic’ is of course on one of its romantic gondolas which will guide you along the famous network of winding waterways that make up the Grand Canal to see some of its most iconic landmarks, including the Rialto Bridge.
Although holidaymakers inevitably flock to Venice to see its famous canals, there’s plenty on offer back on dry land too. St Mark’s Square is a masterpiece in itself where you will find three major sights within close proximity to one another; Doge’s Palace, St Mark’s Basilica and Torre dell’Orologio. No wonder Napoleon described the square as the 'drawing room of Europe'.
The best place to catch a birdseye glimpse of this fabulous city is at its tallest building St Mark’s Campanile where you can enjoy magnificent views that stretch as far as the eye can see. Meanwhile in the narrow alleyways of Venice you can browse the many shops where you can buy Venetian masks and glass products made on the neighbouring island of Murano
